In Reply to: Re: Origin of the names Condra-Condro by James Condra of 374

Having been away from the Forum for some time I have returned to Condra after having good luck on the Condreay Forum. James, I would like your input as to why you have retained the Condra spelling while my Gr.Gr.Grandmother Thurza Condra Widner's family seem to have changed to Condreay in their migration through Tennessee, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and Kansas. Is it colloquial spelling, or did your family stay in a location where people knew the correct spelling of the name? Thurza's name is spelled Condra in her application for marriage license in Monroe County, Indiana, in 1830. Close neighbors in Illinois and Iowa spell it Condreay. Thank you.
