I’m Jane and I started this blog to publish tidbits of research on the Conner family of North Carolina. My hope is that others will read the tidbits and match it with one of their tidbits to complete the puzzle of the Conner Family.

For over 20 years I have researched the Conner Family. My Conner roots stalemated in the North Carolina mountain counties of McDowell, Polk and Rutherford. Check out the Conner tab above to learn more.  The most recent discovered revelation is that there is…well find out for yourself under the Conner Tab!

Where did they first migrate from into the North Carolina territory?
Which dock did they first step onto when immigrating to the Americas?
Is there a Conner Family Bible for the Conner Family of Rutherford, Lincoln and McDowell Counties of North Carolina?
Who else is researching the Conner Family?
I have found Conners in Indiana, Missouri and Texas….Are they connected? How?

So many questions with so few answers!

Then there is the other parts to my blog:

Second, the Gouge family is my husband’s family. They have their roots in Mitchell County and have a very rich history.

Thirdly, I love to write and every-once-in-a-while I like to believe that God blessed me with an insight that I enjoying sharing under the Snippets of life tab.

Lastly, photography! I carry my camera everyone I go! There have been many times that my dear, wonderful husband brings the car to a screeching halt, after I yell…”Stop, Stop!” just so I can get a picture of something. Please take a moment to take a look.

Enjoy rambling through this site, I would love to hear your positive thoughts, ideas and comments about this site.

  1. I am researching my Conner line also. My great grandmother’s maiden name was Conner (Nancy Elizabeth Conner b. 1897 d. 1990 in Halifax County). Her father was William Tinch Conner (b. 1865 d. 1902). He married Missouri Elizabeth Inscoe/Insco in 1896 when he was 20 years of age in Warren County, NC. From their marriage information, I find that his parents names were Wyatt & Frances Ann Conner and that they were deceased at the time of their son’s marriage. William Tinch Conner was only 37 when he died of Bright’s Disease. As he and his parents died early, I am having trouble finding any additional information on this line of my family. I was wondering if you found any of these names in the research on your Conner family line?

    1. Hi Deborah, great to hear from you. I do not recognize any of the names you mentioned. I will search my tree and if anything comes up, I will let you know.

      1. I am also trying to find my roots, all I know is my family is from Silva, NC, my Grandmother is Ada Conard Conner Grandfather William Conner, their children Kenneth, Dorothy, Thomas, and Robert deceased 1977 (my father)

  2. My Mother’s Dad was Thomas Gayden Conner, Son of William Wesley Conner in McDowell County. He married Bertha Bruce Price. That is it…that is all I know about the Conner family and would love to know more. My Mother is very ill and I would like to get more information and share with her before she gets worse. Any information you have, or have on the family would be very much appreciated.

  3. I am researching Dr. William Henry Connor,he was a doctor in Catawba county,born 1825 died in Iredell County n.c
