Isaac Conger

PARENTS: Jonathan Conger and Euphemia Ross

BIRTH: Probably Rowan Co., NC (CFA I, p. 240)

RESIDENCES: Isaac Conger settled near Bowling Green, KY; moved then to Missouri; a few years later moved to Springfield, IL; and then to McLean county, IL, about 1830. (CFA I, p. 240)

The history of McLean county, Illinois has a feature of the Conger family that was written by Miss Emma Conger (b. 1841), daughter of Robert [Barrett] Conger, one of the earliest settlers of Stout's Grove. As is usually the case, "family tradition" will vary from statistical facts. Emma's story is as follows:

"Isaac Conger, an only son, was born in England, emigrated to America when young and settled near Mammoth Cave, Kentucky. (He was the son of Jonathan Conger, b. 1732, descendant of John Belconger.) He married Susan Barnett (Barrett) and they had four sons, Jonathan, Robert, Benjamin and Nicholas.

"In 1829 the family emigrated to Illinois and settled at Stout's Grove, in what is now McLean county. Isaac Conger and his wife died soon after coming here, at the age of eighty-three (in 1842).

"Jonathan, Robert and Nicholas Conger made farms adjoining each other.

Isaac Todd

Thomas Todd

AKA-CONFLICT: Thomas Todd, p. 724, CFA II; Isaac Thomas Todd by Robert Guilinger; Issac Todd by others. Thomas Todd by Ruth Ray Edwards. Looks like there is plenty of room for discussion. Can anyone prove his name?

BIRTH: 3 Jun 1761, Easton Co., PA

PARENTS-CONFLICT: Some say his parents were Thomas and Sally Todd (CFA II, p. 411). Ruth Ray Edwards says the parents were: Benjamin Todd and Sarah Giffin.

CONFLICT-RESEARCHER: There is some question about the name of the Todd who married Zipporah Conger. Based on the DAR application (current as of 1996) of Paula Van Winkle of El Dorado, KS the name of Issac Todd is include in the work of Richard E. Henthorn. Some Todd family researchers list the husband of Zipporah as, Thomas. Thomas was probably the father of Issac. More research and some citations to sources needs to be done before these links can be considered more than speculation.

RESEARCHER-RELATIONSHIP: Aldine Thurston, granddaughter of Andrew Dodd Todd was interested in family history and genealogy and shared her information with Ida Mae (Todd) Drommer. Aldine Thurston listed Thomas Todd as the husband of Zipporah Conger, which does not agree with what some of the other Conger family researchers have listed.

QUESTION: Did this family have two children named, Sally Todd, the first dying in infancy?

COMMENT: The Todd family held a family reunion at Minneapolis, KS on 27 May 1996.
(Furnished by Ida Mae Drommer)

DEATH-CONFLICT: 5 Apr 1843, Lawrence Co., IN (CFA II, p. 724). Where did he die?

992. Moses Todd

Moses Todd

Problem: It has also been reported that he was born in 1807, in CFA, Vol. II, p. 441.

993. Sally Todd

Sally Todd

CONFLICT-RELATIONSHIP: It has been reported that Sally Todd Morrow was the grandmother of Samuel J. Crawford. He was the 3rd governor of Kansas and was of historical importance to Kansas history. If Sally Todd was indeed born in 1805 and she married William Morrow in 1859 she would have been Abt. 54 at the time of the marriage and therefore it is highly unlikely that there were children of this union. The names of the father and grandfather of Samuel J. Crawford were not given so it wasn't possible to determine if Sally Tood had been married previous to her marriage to William Morrow. No source citation for the relationsship statement was given. Unless proven by citations to sources this relationship should be considered only as speculation.

William Morrow

Willaim Morrow

Problem: Was his surname, Morrow, Morran or Moran? Maxine Leonard in CFA, Vol. II, p. 441 lists, Morran.

RESIDENCES: Isaac Conger, 1779, obtained a government grant for about 2,000 acres near Fayetteville, TN. He built a brick home about 1810 which later was occupied by his son, Sion Illif Conger, 1810, grandson, Dixie Lamar Conger, 1864. The widow of Dixie Lamar died there in 1969. It is believed to be the oldest house in Lincoln county, TN. Isaac's great-grandson, John Beall Conger, 1905, later owned and lived in the house.
(Source: The Conger Family of America, Vol. I, 40-41a - Maxine Crowell Leonard)

DEATH-QUESTION: Did he die on the same date as his wife, 4 Mar 1857? (CFA I, p. 241)

RELATIONSHIP: Isaac Conger and his wife, Mary Moores were 1st cousins. (CFA I, p. 241)


RESIDENCES: Isaac Conger lived on "Beachlawn," farm which he established about 1815, near Fayetteville, TN (CFA I, p. 472)

Isaac Conger left his home in Rowan Co., NC after the death of his mother and lived for a short time with his uncle and aunt (Henry Moores and Jane (Ross)). He married Mary [Moores], his cousin, and went to Tennessee. There they settled in Lincoln county, which was a cane-break wilderness.

Isaac and Mary were both deeply religious and members of the Methodist church. Their home was about seven miles from Fayetteville [TN] and their nearest neighbor was four miles away. Jane Brown Moores (Mary's youngest sister, b. 1800) lived with them and died a spinster in 1858.

Isaac became convinced that he must preach the Gospel, and so decided. He made preparation and was licensed by the ELK Conference in 1811. The diaries kept while at this work indicate that his wife strongly opposed his missionary work, which greatly depressed him. He was deeply impressed with responsibility of saving sinners and persisted in the work while his health would permit -- preaching and teaching whereever he went. He preached three or four sermons a day, often two or three hours long -- all interspersed with taking in new converts, excommunicating reprobates and riding horseback fifteen or twenty miles. His usual circuit covered the territory now occupied by eight or more counties, but he preahed at times in almost every settlement in the state. It took thirty days to ride the circuit.

After a year of riding circuit, Isaac turned again to his farm. The last notation in the diary: "Nov 19 -- started to Georgia for my workman to finish the buildings. Got there in 10 days and returned in a few days over a month. I lost a __ hundred dollar mare and my wagon had liked to run over me but got but little hurt. Landed safe home the 22nd of December; find my family in health." This trip must have been made to his brother's home in Cobb county, Georgia.

Though deeply fond of his homestead, Isaac seemed to have had an inquiring mind and enjoyed travel. He also took occasional trips on horseback through Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois and back through Kentucky and Tennessee. One interesting trip he undoubtedly made was to his brother, John B. Conger, at Grand Gulf, Mississippi. This particular brother was the owner of 10,000 acres of rich delta land with not a hill on it. His land was worked by a thousand slaves. To house them, there was a mile-long stretch of cabins on the plantation.

Isaac obtained a government grant for about 2,000 acres of land. There is a family tradition that Isaac and Mary journeyed to Tennessee with little else besides a "Pigin,' a pot, and a johnny cake board." They lived in a log cabin until about 1808 when he had a brick house built for his growing family. This house is in use and has been extended -- and is probably the oldest house in Lincoln county, TN (by Mrs. Iliff Conger, Rt. 2, Louisville, TN, July 1967 -- filed with a diary by Isaac Conger in the State Archives at Nashville, TN)

Isaac employed a brick mason and together they built the house, using clay from the front yard to mold the oversize bricks for the structure. The two big second floor bedrooms were not connected by a door. One was for boys and the other for girls -- and they had separate stairways. Now (1965), with the addition of extra rooms over the years, it is a 14-room house, but all the woodwork, even the windowsills (made of black locust) of the original house is still intact. With 12-foot-high ceilings and foot thick walls, the house is still in a state of perfect preservation. There is no need for air conditioning. (Feature story on his great grandson, Dixie Lamar Conger, is in "The Chattanooga Times," 2 Aug 1965).

"The original house consisted of four rooms of the two-story brick part (still in use). The one story frame was added before the Civil War. It contained two rooms and an entrance hall, and I assume the porches were added at the same time, because the ornamental appointments seem to be in keeping. Also I assume that the original kitchen was still in use. According to the customs of the day, the kitchen was separate, and to the rear of the new addition. Some time after the Civil War the old kitchen was removed and a new kitchen, dining room, butler's pantry, etc. was added behind the new frame building.

"The bricks for the two story and full basement were burnt at the site, and I presume the dirt from the basement (rock lined) was used for the brick. The old lime kiln was discovered a few years ago about a quarter mile S.E. of the building. The sand had to be hauled in from Elk River some 8 miles away.

"Over the years, little changes have been made in the original brick portion, except large glass panes were substituted for the 8" x 10" glass sashes, and the floors were covered with hardwood flooring. Most of the window frames and doors and door frames are still sound. They are carved out of solid black locust." (John B. Conger, 1970 occupant of the house.)

A paper called, "Tempo" ran a feature story in October 1967, in which John B. Conger was interviewed about the house. He explained that "pingin'" was a leather bucket and the pail referred to by Mrs. Iliff Conger, above, was probably made of either wood or brass.

Isaac first built a lean-to on the creek, now called Hamestring Creek, which meanders through the farm. The area was mostly wooded then and extremely rugged. The stone and log house which the young Isaac built for his family stands directly behind the comfortable home constructed later. The rocks which line the ground floor of that first house are cut identically, inside and out. Rubble was used to fill between them. Walls of the house are two feet thick.

Forming the one room second floor are hand-hewn logs 40 feet long, 15 to 18 inches wide and about 8 inches thick. They are carefully notched and placed. The house itself measures 20 feet by 40 feet. On the lower floor is a large open fireplace in which Mrs. Conger did the cooking. The floor was dirt and small windows were placed in the stone portion of the walls.

Isaac Conger evidently had his mind set on making housekeeping as easy as possible for his wife. He installed "running water." Taking two-by-fours, the young settler cut a one-half by one-inch groove on one side. He did the same to another piece of wood, put them together and water flowed from a nearby spring through a one-inch pipe into the house.

Building the new house was a slow process, taking time out to make crops, to locate stones for the basement, and assemble crews of workmen. In 1813, according to Isaac's diary, he went to Georgia in search of more workmen. The house was finally finished in 1815. It had two rooms downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs, as mentioned, for the boys on one side and the girls on the other. The kitchen, added a little later was to one side of the main house. Walls of the house are 14 inches thick. Hugh fireplaces with fancy mantles were put in both rooms downstairs. The front door, still in its original state, has fancy woodworking and a glass pane.

After the main house was finished, the kitchen was added and a brick smokehouse was constructed. The smokehouse is now used as a refrigerated vault to hold cured hams which John B. Conger sells.

Two more wings have been added to the house and it how has 10 rooms and 2 baths. The Conger house has had running water throughout the house since 1901. Several pieces of furniture have been retained by family members over the years, and the Congers have added other antiques to keep the house as authentic as possible.

During the Civil War, Union soldiers "stripped the farm bare." However, the farm houses weren't burned. Before the war Sion Conger was quite a wealthy man. Property evaluation records showed Sion had nine slaves valued at $1,000 each and property valued at $14,000 with between 1,000 and 1,200 acres.

But things changed. After the Civil War, Sion's wife developed poor eyesight. She went to Dresden for treatments and letters found in the house, written to her by Sion, promised he would send her $10 "if he could get it together."

Four generations of Congers have owned the property. After Sion died, the farm was owned by his son, Dixie Lamar Conger. Dixie's son, John Beall Conger, is the present owner, and he has promised to sell part of it to his son, John Beal Conger, Jr.

The house is located on Route 5, Fayetteville, TN 37334.
