Rebecca ADAMSON and Mathew or Mathias CONDREAY were married on 5 January 1812 in Grainger County, Tennessee. Mathew or Mathias CONDREAY was born in 1788 in Grainger County, Tennessee. He died in 1843 at the age of 55 in Yates City, Knox County, Illinois. He was buried in Knightlinger Cemetery, Knox County, Illinois.

Rebecca ADAMSON and Mathew or Mathias CONDREAY had the following children:



Margaret "Peggy" CONDREAY was born in 1818 in Grainger County, Tennessee. She died in 1870 at the age of 52 in Lyon County, Kansas.

Married Arnold Franklin Cabbage (1803-1883)

Buried Wilmington Cemetery, Harveyville, Wabaunsee Co., Kansas., as is her husband.



Dennis CONDREAY was born in 1822 in Grainger County, Tennessee. He died in July 1884 at the age of 62 in Westville, Adair County, Oklahoma.

Dennis's first wife was Naomi E. "Nancy" Thurman, believed to be the daughter of John Allen Thurman and Alice Bailes. Nancy was first married to William H. Merryman, 28 Jul 1829, Highland Co Ohio - there were three children. She married Dennis Condreay, 3 Mar 1844, Knox Co IL and they had one daughter, Rebecca, born 1845. Apparently they divorced. Nancy married a third time to John B. Strange III, 7 Jul 1849, Knox, IL and had four more children. Her name is Naomi on her gravestone (but the picture of the stone shows her as N. E. Strange), Amy on her first marriage, Nancy and Omi in other place. See 1850 census, Knox Co IL, and 1860, Louisa Co, Iowa. Said to be age 98 when she died in 1896, but that would make her several years older than Dennis - it also suggests she was past child-bearing age when some of her children were born. I suspect this is a case of a very old persons' age being exaggerated.

Married 2nd Catherine Olson, 22 Dec 1859, Weller, Henry Co, IL. They had several more children.
