From: Richard E. Henthorn 5403 76th Ave Hyattsville, MD 20784-1705
Email: Rhenthorn1@aol.com (301) 459-0535

Birth: Film #: 170878, Page #: 427, Ordinance #: 20670
24 Oct 1819, John S. Conger, Monroe Co., Ohio
Problem: Was the place of birth, Monroe Co., OH or Manchester, Dearborn, IN?

RECOLLECTIONS:
Cora Conger Henry said that her father, John Spencer Conger was sheriff for one
term at Lawrenceburgh, IN. Her uncle, Ed, served the next term. She also said
he was in the Mexican War from 1846 to 1848.
(Source: The Conger Family of America - Maxine Crowell Leonard) pages 317-322

MILITARY: John S. Conger enlisted in 1847 in the 3rd Regt. Ind. Co. L. The
following notation is from Vol. 5, pg 168, Waupaca Co, Wis. which may refer to
the above John, although the birth and death dates are different than on the
family record: "David Conger born New Jersey, son: JOHN SPENCER b. Dec 1825 at
Lawrenceberg, Ind. d. 2 Jul 1907." Also, "John S. Conger, Pvt, 49th Inf. Reg
Co. E; res--Prairie du Sac, enlisted Feb. 4, 1865 (Civil War)."
(Source: The Conger Family of America - Maxine Crowell Leonard)

MILITARY: John Spencer Conger kept a diary during his time in the Mexican War.
The diary covered the period 10 Jun 1846 to 8 Jul 1847. The first few lines of
the diary are given here (See: Maxine Crowell Leonard's book, p. 318 for the
full text).
1846
June 10--The Dearborn volunteers started from Lawrence-burgh,
Indiana, on the S.B. Pike No. 7. Landed at Louisville, KY the same
evening.
June 11-- Cross the river next morning to North Albany, Ind. The
Rendevous for the Indian[a] Troops.
June 18-- Mustered into the service of the United States for the term of
12 months. So much for the start. We rather took the shine of the other
companies--at least the North Albany girls said so.
June 25--This day the Election of Officers for the three regiments took
place. The election for the 3rd Regiment resulted as follows: Lane,
Colonel, McCarty, Lt. Colonel, and Gorman, Major.
(Source: The Conger Family of America - Maxine Crowell Leonard)

RECOLLECTIONS: Electa Jane Crowell Sutfin (daughter of Mary Conger Crowell)
spoke of her uncle as follows: "When visiting at Madison, Indiana, sometimes
my uncle John would take me with his wife and baby out in a skiff to ride the
waves of the big steamboats. Sometimes we would be eight or ten feet up -- and
then down to the level -- then up again. My, I wonder how I ever did such a
thing! Sure thought it fine fun then."
(Source: The Conger Family of America - Maxine Crowell Leonard)

BIOGRAPHY: The family records state that John died at the Soldier's Home at
Waupaca, Wis. and Charles L. Conger records say Marshalltown, [IA]. Prior to
going to the Soldier's Home he lived with his son, Robert, and was remembered
as "a fine looking aristocratic old gentleman." John must have removed back to
Manchester, [IN], because at one time he was the sheriff.

Birth: Batch #: 442588, Source Call #:
16 Dec 1852, Cora L. Conger, Lawrenceburg, Dearborn, Indiana
RECOLLECTIONS:
Excerpts from letters written by Cora Conger Henry to Charles L. Conger, dated
July 1911: "Soon I will write and give you what data I have regard to my
father's sisters and brothers, but enclosed you find a book of the beginning
and ending of the Mexican War, which my father was a member of, from 1846 to
1848, before father was married.
Now you will see in this little old book where the lead pencil begins, the
death of his brother, David Conger. I have several letters from his father and
sisters and brothers while he was in the Mexican War, but not place mentions
their deaths.
One of his sisters, Hannah Jane Conger, died in 1854. I will find out for
certain through some old letters that were sent to my father when he was in the
Mexican War. Please send the letters and book back, as I think when I die I
will have them placed in my coffin or confined to the four winds." (See data
for John Spencer Conger)
My cousins are scattered everywhere and they are so long in answering my
letters. I will write again to them, and a cousin Edward Conger in Phoenix,
Ariz. His father, Edward Conger, was my father's youngest brother, and the
youngest of David Conger's children. He died somewhere about 1870, I think, or
about 1868. ..."
