NEWS FLASH !!


A gathering of the family’s

to preserve family history
By Donald N. Conoly


The spelling on the name has had many variants Conally, Conley, Conoly, Conoley, Connelly, Connolly etc. The Conoly, Conoley, etc. family has been gathering each year for the past fifty four years. The idea of a clan gathering was started by the late John Duncan McMillan a business owner of Raeford. They are descendants of a Scotsman Daniel Conley and Nancy Campbell.


Daniel Conley (1768-1849) and wife, Nancy Campbell (1770-1851) were natives of Scotland, where they were born, reared and married on 23 June 1792 at Bowmore Parish (now Kilarrow), on the Isle of Islay. A few days after the marriage they left their native country for the United States, settling in the Cape Fear River basin of Robeson Co., NC with a Scotch colony, with which he came to this country, and spent the rest of their lives in Robeson County. He was an educated person, a farmer and landowner in the Lumber Bridge/Shannon area. Their family consisted of six sons and four daughters. Elements of the family moved to lower Georgia, Alabama, and Texas. Some of the descendants became quite prominent.


The clan gathering draws family from afar. Family members from South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, Texas, California, Kentucky, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and South Dakota have attended in the past. Are you family or friend? If you think you might be a descendant of Daniel Conley and Nancy Campbell you are welcome to attend the gathering. Some family names include: Blue, Brown, Caldwell, Carlisle, Cobb, Conoley, Conoly, Currie, Elliott, Fiveash, Galbreath, Hodgin, Holland, Humphrey, Johnson, Jones, Laughlin, Livingston, Mathews, McBryde, McDonald, McDougald, McEachern, McIntyre, McLauchlin, McLean, McMillan, McNeill, McPhail, McPhaul, Melvin, Moffitt, Monroe, Nye, Parker, Patterson, Prevatte, Scott, Sinclair, Stiles, Sumner, Thompson, Wallace, Williams, Wood and over 1200 other surnames.

 

This year the 54th gathering will be held during the North Carolina Turkey Festival in Raeford, NC. The Festival includes food, crafts, bands, parades, and other events, as there is much to see and be a part of. Visit the website for more information on the events at

www.ncturkeyfestival.org.

 

On Saturday September 20, 2014 a cook out is scheduled to be held at the Raeford-Hoke Museum 5:00-7:00 pm. The Museum is suffering in donations and we have been asked  to pay for the usage this time. We don’t make money on the event and our bank balance is below what you might spend at the grocery store. So if we want to use the Museum this year we need donations from the families. Mail your donations to Conoly/Conoley Reunion, 6798 N. Old Wire Rd., Lumber Bridge, NC 28357. The supper will be $10.00 a person to help offset expenses. On Sunday September 21, 2014 at Antioch Presbyterian Church services will be followed by a meeting and covered dish lunch provided by attendees. Donations are needed to keep the tradition going. Are you going to help? Or do we have to make this a one day event at the Antioch Presbyterian Church on Sunday. We need your donations now!!


On the Saturday, September 20, 2014, from 1pm-4pm before the scheduled cook out, Don Conoly, the family historian will be taking those interested on a tour of the area. We will meet on the Court House steps on Main Street at 1pm. Then we will go to old home sites, gravesites, and discuss the history of the families and the area. It will be a transition back in time, bring your camera to take back memories. He has written two books on the family history during over forty years of research. Ask him about them.
