George Agon (1841 Ireland-30 Jun 1921 Canton,N.Y.) was twice married with many children from each marriage.He married first to Florence Mae Conkey (1846-1871) abt 1864 and had 4 children: William Conkey Agon,Charles A. Agon,Almira Agon, and Lewis Agon. He married second to Mary Emily "Emma" Todd abt 1874. She lived from 1849 DePeyster,N.Y and died 17 Feb 1920 in Canton.They had 8 children: Maud,Worth,Guy,Leon,John,Mabel,Ethel, and Benjamin Harrison Agon. Most are buried in Canton's Evergreen Cemetery with my family close by. I am a Bailey-Ames-Conkey-Conant family descendant. Th econfusion of the spelling probably occurred in Ireland as there are no other Agon's with the possible exception of a Mary Gillette Agon buried in the same Cemetery. Her dates precede George's and may be his sister. Ted Bates in Fort Wayne,IN. Tell me if this helps.
