There might be Conways, but if so I don't know about it. John Dermody, my ggrandfather, married an Anne Curran McKiernan in Killdallon, Ballyconnell, Cavan. Anne is listed as a widow on the civil record. Her father was Edward Curran. John Dermody was born in Co. Longford. I don't know where Anne was born, but assume it was Cavan. My grandfather, as I said, came to America with Francis Reilly. They're on the ship's manifest as cousins. Francis was a witness at my maternal grandfather James' marriage in 1906. After that I can't find him, because all I know about him is his place of origin, Cavan, and his approximate date of birth, about 1878.

On the other hand, there are almost certainly Conways in the tree on the paternal side of my family. They're from Derry and Tyrone, and while I haven't figured out the connections, there are several McNally/Conway marriages in Tyrone. My paternal grandmother was a McNally.

If you like, write me at my email address and we'll see what we have between us.
