John Conner platted Connersville in 1813, the year he married Lavina Winship. You might see if you can find a book called "Sons of the Wilderness" published by Conner Prairie Press.

John's brother William settled north of Indianapolis, near what is now Noblesville, Hamilton Co., IN. Earlham College developed a living history museum on the original property. They kept William's original house and made an entire village. It is called Conner Prairie and is located about 10 miles south of Noblesville or 15 miles north of Indianapolis on Allisonville Rd (runs parallel to State Road 37 and I-69)

There were several James Conner's listed in the book, but no Risk.
