Thomas Dorris Conger

COMMENT: At the time CFA I, was published, Thomas Dorris Conger had not been linked to the family tree of John Belconger. (CFA I, p. 489)

MARRIAGE: Thomas D. Conger and Moniza McCampbell were married on 18 Oct 1827 at Callaway Co., MO.
(Source: Missouri Marriages before 1840, compiled by Susan Ormasher - furnished by Joyce Posey)

CENSUS: 1850 census reading lists his age as, 47. (b. Abt. 1803)
(Source: The Conger Family of America, Vol. II, p. 723 - Maxine Crowell Leonard)

COMMENT: "The History of Callaway County, MO" gave a list of emigrants who had signed up to form a group to go to California in 1850. The Congers on this list were: S.D. Conger; Thomas D. Conger; James and Stephen D. Conger, Jr.. This did not mean that all who signed up made the journey, however in the 1860 census none of the Congers appear.
(Source: The Conger Family of America, Vol. II, p. 133 - Maxine Crowell Leonard)

MARRIAGE: On page 489 of CFA I, Thomas Dorris Conger, b. Abt. 1805 is listed as married to Sarah (Sallie) Amyra McCampbell. However, Callaway Co., MO marriage records state that Thomas Dorris Conger married Moniza Campbell. The 1860 census shows Moniza Conger living in Boydsville alone. It was later determined that he and sons, James Bowers and Stephen Dorris, 1833, were doctors and perhaps he was involved in the early stages of the Civil War. There is a marriage record of a Thomas Conger to Josephine MacCroy on 18 Nov 1871, but his must have been the s/o Stephen Dorris Conger, 1833, whose birth year is approximated at Abt. 1853.

RECOLLECTIONS: From Lorraine Smith, 355 W. Kern, Bakersfield, CA 93250, dtd 25 Nov 1981

I might tell you one thing -- a tradegy that happened to Dr. Thomas Dorris Conger. You know in those days the doctors filled all their prescriptions themselves. Well, Dr. Thomas had a considerable amount of money on his person -- some his, some of his sons, Dr. James Bowers [Conger] and Dr. Stephen Dorris [Conger]. He went to Shreveport and took a riverboat to Baton Rouge to take another riverboat on to St. Louis to buy drugs for the three doctors. But he was never heard of again. He took an occasional "toddy," so the family always felt that some rogues had drugged his drink, robbed him and threw him overboard.

Six weeks later, when he hadn't been heard from, Dr. James, when on horseback to Shreveport and found that he had taken the riverboat on that day on schedule but had not arrived at Baton Rouge. Dr. James then went to Missouri in and spring wagon and brought his mother and her things back to Red Oak, TX to live with him. She never could accept her husband's death. She seldom ever smiled after that, and when in a crowd, she was always looking around, hoping to see him. They had always been very close.

I got this information from a 92 year-old cousin in New Mexico whom I didn't know existed until I wrote to the Red Oak Cemetery Assn. and a woman in town remembered my Nellie as the first "hello" girl when the telephone lines were first installed in Red Oak. She sent me Nellie's address and other materials. Nellie has a clear mind and steady hand -- a good memory too.
