MARTIN CONNER - Early information that I acquired from various Conner researchers many years ago indicated that Martin Conner was born in Ireland.   It was said that he came to the United States in 1775 to fight in the American Revolution.  He supposedly served under Gen. Lafayette.  However I have recently been informed by another Conner researcher that Martin may have been born in Georgia so the previous information may not be entirely accurate.  More research will be needed to verify.  Martin Conner died in 1825 in Cooper County, Missouri.

The deposition of Magnus Tullock of Blount County Tennessee in 1832 regarding his service in the Revolutionary War mentions a Capt. Martin Coner:

".........we were marched to the state of Georgia to Augusta a ferry at New Richmond, then next down opposite to Augusta, the British at that time was in possession of the town, we were stationed on the opposite side of the river where we torn up a battery, no officers higher in command then Captains, they were a part of three companies, one Captain Martin Coner a militia man, the other were enlisted they called independents."

  At one time the name Conner is believed to have been spelled O'Conner.  Martin's wife's name was Martha, maiden name unkown. 

Martha and Martin were the parents of eleven children:

I have a Martin Conner from County Offaly b. 1767  i have no wife for him.  I show this one died in abut 1815 but where there is one Maring Conner there will be others and they kept giving the same name to cousins....so you should be looking in County Offaly...and that gets difficult to do.  Offaly was first the Kingdom of Offaly, and it was ruled by the O'Connor family Sept up until about the 1600s.  But the English created the counties of KIng's, Queen's, and Lexi  and part of Kildare form the Kingdom of offaly.  So you have to look in all those counties. In 1921 the coutnies of King's and Queen's were abolished and a few other counties were created along with the present Coutny Offlay. I find my best records in Kildare County not in Offaly Coutny.

I can send you my working file on the clan or I can send you a GEDCOM file on the Offaly if that will help you. Yes indeed the O'Connor families of Offaly had some families that used the spelling of Conner. There is a large group of Conner's living in Cork form the 1600s and they spell the name as Conner and sometimes you find it as Connor.  I am looking in Cork too. Harold
