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
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
