Per request, here is a typled transcript of my early family history wh
have been passed down in two separate family lines. My notes preceed t

HISTORY OF THE CONKLIN FAMILY
(This is a copy of a typewritten manuscript which was originally writte
Elijah Conklin. No spelling or grammar changes have been made. Please a
ote that E. Conklin's grandfather, Joseph was actually the son of Jose
and Mary (Cory) Conkling. David Conklin could be his great grandfather o
he may be confusing this with his great grandfather David Ross. Misspel
childrens names are: Pierson, Keiziah Woolley, and Isaac. Also there sh
probably be no comma before Cory and Elijah's father was Joseph Cory.
