I'm having a "bugger" of a time finding my gggrandad Leander Conaway and
wife Sarah with daughter Manerva in the 1870 census. They were married
in Murhysboro in Dec 1868. I believe they may have settled near or with
her folks in Makanda. Her father was Thomas Downs, and her grandfather
was William Elmore. All these folks show in Makanda, Union Co. in the
What county is Makanda in in 1870?
