    Regarding Elisha T. Condley

    Hickory County, Missouri Biographies--E. T. Condley

    History Of Hickory, Polk, Cedar, Dade And Barton Counties,
    Missouri, 1889. Published by Goodspeed. Pages 583, 584

    E. T. Condley, a successful hardware merchant at Cross Timbers, Mo., is a native of
    Halifax County, of the "Old Dominion," where he was born in 1814. Anderson Condley,
    his father, was also born there, his birth occurring in the year 1792. He remained,
    engaged in farming, in his native State and county until some sixteen years of age,
    then emigrating with his father to Giles County, Tenn., where he made his home until
    his death. His wife, whose maiden name was Elizabeth Cobb, was born in Halifax County,
    Va., in 1794, and died in Tennessee on Sunday, followed by Mr. Condley the next Saturday.
    Of their six children, E. T. Condley was the eldest. He was engaged in farming in
    Tennessee until sixteen years of age, and was married there to Miss Elizabeth Beck, a
    native of the State, born in 1823. Their union resulted in the birth of five children:
    Ann E., wife of V. S. Williams; Calvin M., who died of small-pox when twenty-one years
    of age, at St. Louis, while serving in the Federal army; Mary, wife of John B. Ihrig;
    Beverly, who died when four years old; and Martha, wife of E. T. Ray. In 1839 Mr. Condley
    came to Missouri, and was engaged in blacksmithing in Benton County for about twenty years,
    and, until 1872, followed both farming and blacksmithing, and, at that date, came to
    Hickory County, and has since been engaged in his present business in Cross Timbers. He
    is quite well fixed financially, being the owner of 120 acres of land, besides town property,
    and is one of the substantial residents of the county. He and family belong to the Christian
    Church, and he is a Democrat, and is past master in the Masonic fraternity. His paternal
    grandfather, William Condley, was born in North Carolina, but afterward located in Halifax
    County, Va., where he was engaged in farming, and resided until his death. The
    great-grandfather was born in Ireland. The maternal grandfather, Ambrose Cobb, was a farmer,
    and a native of Halifax County, Va.
