Can anyone give us more information on his parents and the other Lemlys of Rowan County?
A coding error eliminated the second wife of William A. Lemly and the remainder of this family. This was corrected September 4, 2007.
*Lieutenant Henry Rowan Lemly of Forsyth County: Fighting Crazy Horse in the Great Sioux War
Ithiel Lemly lived in Patrick Co. VA and Montgomery and Ashe Counties, NC. At the time of his mother's death in 1910, he was listed as "of Ashe Co." Amanda Conrad Lemly's will (1910) refers to her granddaughter Amanda S. Gordon specifically and then mentions "children of Ithiel T. Lemly, my son" without naming them. Who were the others?
Henry Conrad Lemly (1874-1904) is living with Henry Augustus and Amanda Lemly in 1880, age 5, listed as their grandson. Was he Ithiel's son, living with his grandparents in that year because his mother had died? Or was he the son of one of the other Lemly children? He married Letitia Brown (1880-1931). They had one son, Conrad Brown Lemly (1902-1967), who is named in his grandmother Amanda Conrad Lemly's will.
