Re: FANNY TYREE who married a WALLEN

In Reply to: FANNY TYREE who married a WALLEN by George Kay of 1121

Frances "Fanny"Tyree was my GGGrandmother's mother in law,,My GGGrandmother's name was Margaret Conley whe she married John Walling probably in the mid 1800's,,Margaret had 2 other children when she married John Walling,"son of Joseph and Fanny Tyree",,she had 1 boy by the name of Napoleon P.Conley bn 1829 and his sister bn between the years of 1830-1832 both in Ky,,but I can't find out where in Ky they were born,,John and Margaret were in Tenn at least by 1836,for this is the 1st child John and Margaret had "together",,Rebecca Walling,possibly born in McMinn County"not sure",,then went on to have 4 more children together,,Nancy,Charles,Elizabeth and John B.
By 1850 they were living back in Scott Co.Va,and it has my GGrandfather Napoleon with his wife and daughter all as Walling's instead of Conley's ,,about 4 or 5 houses down it shows John and Margaret with my Great Aunt Jane living with them also under the Walling name,
By 1860 they had moved to Marion County,Arkansas,Rapps Barren Twp,,at this time my GGrandparents were going by thier rightful name "Conley"and lists John and Margaret with all thier children in thier household other than Rebecca which was living next to them and next to Napoleon and his wife "Sarah Bishop"d/p Samuel Bishop and Mary Neely of Scott Co.Va,,On this Census it has John and Margaret as "Walden"instead of Walling,,
My GGGrandmother cannot be found after this 1860 Census of Marion County,,however Napoleon,Sarah and thier children had moved on to Howell Co.Mo then on to Ozark Co.where they raised thier children and died there,,
On the 1870 Census it shows a J.Wallin,same age as my John and also born in VA,at this time he was 62 and remarried to a Mary Jane Moffis Owens age 40,,they had 1 child together her name was Mary Margaret "Wallin",,it shows her as Orphaned in 1880 at age 7 and living with her 1/2 sister Emaline Owens Bell"wife of John Bell"in Ozark Co.Mo.
I cannot find John and Margaret's other children after the 1860 Census,,but have found a Charles and John Wallin that served 1 yr apiece in the Civil War in Mo,,the 48th Infantry Company C.for the Union"I have not been able to find out if they lived or died",,but have not found any sign of Nancy or Elizabeth Walling'
Rebecca married a B.A.Gibson/Gipson also of Tenn,,they were living next to her parents John and Margaret Walling in 1860 Marion County,,then 1870 in Ozark Co.Mo and by 1880 they were in Jackson County Arkansas..
I am desparately trying to find out what my GGGrandmother Margaret and/or Peggy Conley Walling's maiden name was,what Conley she was married to and what happened to him and where in Ky she had her 1st 2 children,,Would any of the Tyree's have this information possibly in a family bible,,anything???????????This has been our HUGE BRICK WALL!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
