14. E-mail 31 Aug 2012; Stella; granddaughter of Lydia Blankenship, daughter of Moses Blankenship.
"...There were other Conley Blankenships in the area, I do not know who Celia is, my gggrandfather was Conley “Bull”, he got the nickname because of his size, but I never heard that he remarried. His wife Elizabeth was killed in 1899 at War Eagle by a train. Riffe was named for Floyd Riffe, Conley’s grandson, Elias Stanton Blankenship, son of Moses and Ann Cline, also ended up in Washington. Several of the family graves were moved when the lake was built. Conley performed marriage ceremonies for most of his children and some of his grandchildren, he performed the ceremony for my grandmother Lydia Blankenship, daughter of Moses and Ann Cline, in 1905 to Floyd Scott in WV so he must have made some trips back to WV.
"Another bit of info, Conley owned most of the land around Mohawk, Bull Creek,etc. Bull Creek was originally called Bull’s Creek because it belonged to Conley. He also sold N & W 45 acres of land so they could complete the railroad through the area. Conley served in the Civil War, I think the Kentucky Diamonds, Confederate. I think he was the first preacher in the area plus he and Elizabeth could read and write..."

INDICATION IS THAT CONLEY AND POLLY'S MOTHER HAD DIED AND THEIR FATHER WILLIAM,
HAD GOTTEN REMARRIED, AND THE NEW WIFE DID NOT GET ALONG WITH THESE TWO, SO THEY HAD LEFT AND STRUCK OUT ON THEIR OWN.
