Decendants of Patrick Conway


Name and Location:

Cliff & Peggy - California

The Conway Clan

Patrick Conway was born in England in 1863. His father was Michael Conway and his mother was Catherine Welsh. I have very little information on this side of the family, except what I have written here.

I know that Patrick and other Conways settled in Johnstown, PA. and after he and Catherine McClafferty were married they eventually moved to Youngstown, Ohio. I have documentation indicating that he and his family were definitely in Youngstown, Ohio as early as 1911, per the Youngstown, Ohio City Directory.

In 1911Patrick and his wife Catherine lived on Springdale Avenue along with I beleive, a daughter, Nellie. Patrick worked for Trussed Cement & Steeel Company at that time.

They continued to reside on Springdale Avenue until 1917 when it shows them living on Davis Avenue, where he died on June 7, 1918.

His widow, Catherine (Kate) was listed as residing on Davis Avenue until 192when it indicates that she lived on Wick Ave.

Then in 1923 she resided on Republic Avenue, 1924 Albert Street, 1926 North Fruit Street, 1927-1928 she resided on South Peal, 1929 on Logan Avenue. She died in 1930.

The children showed up in the directory in this order: 1911 Nellie; 1913 Catherine; Charles; Mary M.; 1917 Thomas F and then in 1921 John J. showed up. He lived with his mother until her death.

I do know from family members that married Marshall Nashette. One of their children, Helen, was in the convent but I beleive she left the convent and eventually was married and had a family of her own.

The following is all I know regarding the Patrick Conway family. Any other information that someone may have would be greatly appreciated. This is an ongoing project for me.
