This is the Will of Dennis Conway Sr. In this "Wll ", it names their children . He married Ann Eyres/Eies/Eyes and was the father of Christopher Conway who married Sarah Withers,(daughter of WITHERS, John born Mar 30, 1634, Arkolm, ENGLAND; died 1699.).
They were the parents of John "Withers" Conway (who went by John Conway and Withers Conway in the records that I found)married Dulcibella Bunberry and they were the parents of Richard Conway Sr.
Richard Conway/Conaway Sr. married Mary Watson (daughter of Michael Watson and Mary Lawson) and they moved from Mason county, Kentucky to Henry county Indiana.
I also believe that Richard Conway Sr. and Mary Watson got married in Bedford county, Pa.. That is where both, Michael Watson and Richard Conway/Conaway's are found together in Bedford county, Pa. serving in the Rev. War Service . The Bedford co, PA genweb site online has the lists of the men who served in Bedford county, Pa if you all would like to go find them. They are not listed in the same units but both are listed in Bedford county, Pa. So I am assuming that Bedford county, Pa is where they met and married . Any thoughts?
There is alot of confusion as to who Dennis Conway Sr did marry. I believe, it is Ann Eyres/Eies/Eyes. She was the daughter of Dennis/Denis Eyres/Eies/Eyes and Unknown . I wonder if that Eyres/Eies/Eyes could be Ayres? Any thoughts? There is some records that I had found online referring to Denis Eies or Dennis Eyes or Dennis Eyres dying and John Conway getting or living on the land of Denis/Dennis Eies/Eyes/Eyres.

His son Dennis Conway Jr married Ann Fielding and he had a son named Dennis Conway who married a Routt.
