AKA Elias Darby Conger Sr.

RECOLLECTIONS:
Robert O. Conger, son of John Spencer Conger, wrote the following on 4 May 1911: "Our great grandfather (Elias Darby Conger) was a hard-shell Baptist preacher during the War of Revolution of Long Island. He came from Essex county, NJ.

BIOGRAPHY:
Elias Darby Conger enlisted in the Revolutionary War but was too young to fight, so he "ran bullets." His granddaughter, Elizabeth Conger Henkle, remembered him as a good sized man, sitting in his arm chair reading, and that he had quite a library.

Elias and wife, Mary Goble, accompanied his brother, David, and wife, Sarah, from New Jersey to Western Pennsylvannia in 1791. After Mary's death, in 1804, Elias married Mary Gregory and they moved on into Monroe county, Ohio, where they both died. Family tradition says that Mary Darby Conger, mother of David and Elias, went with them to Pennsylvania.

To prove that you can't believe everything you read in print or what family traditions says, the following article from the "Centerville Iowian," 10 January 1934, is given in full.

The following Conger family data is furnished by J.C. Harvey of Seymour:
"Appanoose county's history may not be complete without the mention of the name Conger. This family dates its beginning in America in the year 1669, landing at Plymouth Rock. They were of French-Hugenot descent. Hence in years each generation emigrated westward until you find the name Conger in all parts of the United States. They are all related, as the original name, was Koniger, and was changed to Conger by John Conger, the first. (This has not been proved nor disproved.)

The Congers were first in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of their countrymen. They furnished soldiers in every war from Colonial wars down to the World War. The first death recorded at Camp Dodge in Des Moines was Conger from Appanoose county.

John Conger, III, was a captain in the Revolutionary War. His son, Gershom, was George Washington's orderly at Valley Forge, and he became the grandfather of the sons and daughters of the Congers who emigrated to Appanoose county in pioneer days. (There is no record of a John Conger having a son named, Gershom, other than John Belconger. Capt. David Conger of the Pennsylvania Militia had a son, Gershom born 1792, after Valley Forge. A Gershom, born about 1763 in N.J., son of Enoch and Berzillah, might possibly have been an orderly to George Washington, but no Gershom in this line could have been.)

Gershom resided and ended his days in Green county, PA. (Son of Elias Darby Conger) His descendants moved over into Monroe county, Ohio, and his grandchildren moved on into Iowa later (this Gershom evidently confused with his father, Elias Darby). Enos and Jane Strayer Conger came first, in 1845 (brother and wife) and homesteaded on the Charlton River. Then came Elias and John in 1849 (brothers) and they homesteaded claims in Caldwell township. They were followed in the early 50's by Benoni, James, Morris, Moses, Max, Mark and Stephen (brothers and nephews), with cousins Charles, Elias and William.

At one time, prior to the Civil War, all these Conger families resided in Appanoose county, Iowa, and Putnam county, MO, and each of these families furnished soldiers in the Civil War -- they were abolitionists and were
interested in the underground route in getting slaves north to freedom.

John Conger (John B. 1808) was progressive in the early day movements. At one time he lived in Centerville and built one of the first brick residences in the town. He helped to organize the first bank in Appanoose county, and later was among the founders of Seymour, Iowa. In the early days he owned and operated one of the first tread-powered threshing machines ever run in this section of the state, This was an advancement over the old chaff-piler and flailing system.

Benoni took to growing blooded cattle, and at one time had one of the best herds of Shorthorns (Durhams) in the state.

Elias (Elias Gregory 1806) drifted into growing blooded horses, and Enos was noted in the county as a horticulturist and farmer. All the other Conger boys became thrifty farmers, and their children likewise took up agricultural pursuits, at which most of them were successul.

Many of the Conger descendants moved westward and became great benefactors in building up the great west. However, at this time possibly over 500 of the Conger descendants live in Appanoose and adjoining counties." (Source: The Conger Family of America - Maxine Crowell Leonard)

EMIGRATION: The Conger family left Woodbridge, Middlesex Co., NJ in 1790, moving to Washington Co., PA. In the party were: 1) Elias Darby Conger, Sr. and his wife, Mary Goble and their five children (Sarah, Mary, Ruth, Hannah andDavid); 2) David Conger Jr., and his wife, Sara (Welch) and son (Elias); 3) the mother of Elias and David Conger, Mary Darby (Green) Conger and their sister, Mary E. Conger.

According to Maxine Crowell Leonard this was

CONFLICT: Was the date of death, 3 Sep 1845 or 13 Sep 1845? Maxine Crowell Leonard lists, 3 Sep 1845. Robert Guilinger believes the date should be 13 Sep 1845. Joyce Posey obtained two records from Page 485-486 of the Tuesday, 26 Sep 1843 Journal of the Monroe Co, Ohio Common Pleas Court which indicate that the death probably occurred in 1843, Abt. 13 Sep 1843.

PROBATE: 17 Jul 1847, Stephen, Benoni, Elias Conger Executors of the Estate of Elias Conger, deceased.
[Note: Joyce Posey reports that Catherine Fedorchak wrote, "a general rule of thumb seems to have been that a person's estate notice was carried (in the newspaper) about a month after the death, it was customary for such notices to be carried for several successive weeks and sometimes months." Since the estate notice was found in the July 17, 1847 issue of "The Spirit of Democracy" it appears that the settlement of the estate of Elias D. Conger was still in process, almost four years after his death.]

PROBATE: 17 Jul 1847, Stephen, Benoni, Elias Conger Executors of the Estate of Elias Conger, deceased.
[Note: Joyce Posey reports that Catherine Fedorchak wrote, "a general rule of thumb seems to have been that a person's estate notice was carried (in the newspaper) about a month after the death, it was customary for such notices to be carried for several successive weeks and sometimes months." Since the estate notice was found in the July 17, 1847 issue of "The Spirit of Democracy" it appears that the settlement of the estate of Elias D. Conger was still in process, almost four years after his death.]

"Stephen Conger was a judge of the Morris County Court. He also was a trustee of the Presbyterian Church at Rockaway {Morris Co, NJ] 1814-1818; 1827-1829;
1837-1843 (Morris County History page 340). The will of Judge Stephen Conger, dated at Randolph, Morris Co, NJ, on 5 Mar 1853 was probated 14 apr 1853. He named his wife Phoebe L. and six children;
the executors were Henry H. conger his son, and Samuel R. Halsey (Morris County Wills).
Crayon's ROCKAWAY RECORDS states that Stephen Conger learned the trade of stone mason, but whether or not he refers to Judge Stephen Conger or his uncle Stephen Conger who removed from North Carolina about 1790 is a question.
The data comprising the names and births, deaths and marriages of the children of DAVID and ELIZABETH AYRES CONGER was gathered from various sources in Morris county and elsewhere, but are fully corroberated by the family Bible of Judge Stephen Conger, purchased at Morristown, New Jersey in 1806 for $8.00.
Photostat copies of the Bible pages were sent by Stephen H Conger, 509 Sycamore Street, Weldon, N.C. 27890.
The earthly remains of Judge Stephen Conger, together with those of his two wives, Mary Halsey and Pheobe Lewis, are interred in the old church yard of the Presbyterian Church, as well as are those of his parents, David 1760 and Elizabeth Ayres Conger, and his grandparents John 1724 and Sarah Tuttle Conger. Stephen lived in the house of his grandfather's brother Zenas and died there."
