Was born in Greene county, West Virginia, July 10, 1824. His parents, William and Mary Conner, were both natives of Virginia. Our subject was educated in the common schools of his native county, and when young learned millwright work, which he followed for five years, then learned carpentering and cabinet-making, which he followed until 1851, when he migrated to this county, and now owns a farm of 200 acres, well equipped with necessary implements.

Mr. Conner was united in marriage October 9, 1850, to Miss Margaret Warren, the date of whose birth was January 4, 1830. They were blessed with three children: Garrett A., born March 7, 1852, died August 31, 1880, from a blow on the head by the swing of the well-auger; while letting the auger down, he accidentally fell and when he was getting up the sweep came around and struck him on the head which produced death in a few hours. Stewart P. was born March 30, 1854; and Mary O., born April 19, 1856. Mrs. Conner died in April, 1859. Mr. Conner married, January 5, 1860, Miss Martha M. McClung. She was born September 7, 1839.
