RECOLLECTIONS: L. Keith Conger, son of Charles Marion Conger, of Cincinnati, IA wrote to Maxine Leonard on 20 Nov 1973.
I have a picture of my grandpa, Enos [Conger] and his wife. I have a cane handed down, that Enos made. I have visited his grave many times. He lies in a little cemetery south of Cincinnati, [IA].
My father, Charles M., was born in a log cabin east of Cincinnati in 1887. He is still living. When he was a boy his dad used to pack up the family in a covered wagon and go to the Indian Territory out in Oklahoma. They made
several such trips and would work in the hay fields of the cattle ranches nearby. What adventures he and his three brothers, Jesse, Pearl and Frank would have.
They hunted and fished with the Indian boys, rode ponies, swam and 'rassled Indian style. All this was passed on to my brother and myself on long winter evenings as we watched the flickering flames of fire.
My dad would also play the harmonica for us and could play the organ too. His favorite tune was, "The Oklahoma Sunset Waltz." I will never forget it if I live to be thousand years old.
I own and live on a 200 acre farm south of Exline, [IA]. This farm has been in the family (both sides of the house) for almost 100 years. Eighty acres of it was purchased from an heir to the Joseph Leonard (who married Margaret Conger) estate.
We are members of the Exline Christian Church which was established in a hayloft in a barn on the John Conger farm in 1852. John was brother to Enos and used the bard as an underground railway station for the slaves in
pre-civil war days.
I have always been proud of and claimed a relationship to all Congers, and am so pleased to have this excellent book to verify it.
