Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

Mary may have been born in Louden County, VA, and died in Mt. Ephraim, Noble County, OH, and buried in the Methodist Church cemetery. Conrad and Mary may have been married in 1799 (reference given to "Book P, Pg. 136") in Leesburg, VA.

They may have moved to Mt. Ephraim, Noble County, OH, in 1818.

Possible children were Conrad (Jr.?), Samuel, Margaret, Elisabeth, George, William J. (listed), John Conrad, Polly Mary Ann, Nelson and James William. All but James William may have been born in Leesburg, Louden County, VA; he might have been born in Mt. Ephriam.

A Mary Shafer (b. abt 1777-1778 in VA) is shown to be living with Levi and Elizabeth (perhaps her daughter and son-in-law) in OH in 1870. She's listed on the census page as "Infirm & Insane" but obviously not bad enough to be institutionalized -- maybe senile?
