James and Louisa had four young children living with them in the household. Son, Ormond, was 9, and daughters Alice, Lucy and Amy were 6, 4 and 2, respectively. The previous family enumerated on the census was the household of George W. Brown, James's younger brother, whose household included another brother, Clarence Shove. The next family enumerated on the census was that of Obediah Arnold and his wife, Rosina (or Rosanna) Kenyon, likely a close relation of George Brown's wife, Eleanor Kenyon. It is believed all of these families knew each other in the east, likely Rhode Island or Massachusetts, before migrating to Illinois. Members of the extended Kenyon family also lived on nearby farms.1

James and Louisa had four young children living with them in the household. Son, Ormond, was 9, and daughters Alice, Lucy and Amy were 6, 4 and 2, respectively. The previous family enumerated on the census was the household of George W. Brown, James's younger brother, whose household included another brother, Clarence Shove. The next family enumerated on the census was that of Obediah Arnold and his wife, Rosina (or Rosanna) Kenyon, likely a close relation of George Brown's wife, Eleanor Kenyon. It is believed all of these families knew each other in the east, likely Rhode Island or Massachusetts, before migrating to Illinois. Members of the extended Kenyon family also lived on nearby farms.1

(Daughter) Census US 18301830Elizabeth likely appeared on the 1830 census in the household of her father James O. Brown in Wrentham, Norfolk County, Massachusetts. The household consisted of 6 free white persons: 1 male age 20 thru 29, who would have been the father James Sr., 1 female age 20 thru 29 who would have been the mother Elizabeth, 1 male age 5 thru 9 who would have been their 6-year-old son James Jr., 1 female under 5 who would have been their 4-year-old daughter Elizabeth, and 1 male under 5 who would have been their 2-year-old son George. There was one additional male age 15-19 who resided in the household.3
Marriage*15 September 1845She married Lucien W. Conger, son of Uzziah Conger and Hannah West, on 15 September 1845 in Knox County, Illinois. In both of the Illinois Indexes, his name was transcribed as "Lucas" W. Conger and the Conger Family source recorded the date as 1 Sep 1845.4,5,2,6
Census US 1850*23 September 1850Elizabeth and Lucien West Conger were enumerated on the 1850 census taken on 23 September 1850 in Galesburg, Knox County, Illinois. On the 1850 Census report, Lucien was spelled "Lutian", he was age 24 and his occupation was Merchant. He was born in New York and was living with his wife, Elizabeth, age 24, born in Rhode Island. Others in the household were daughter, "Emmah", age 4 born Illinois, daughter Cora, age 1 born Illinois and two of Lucien's younger siblings, Edward Conger, age 14, and Lois Conger, 12, both born in New York and students.7
Residence*1864Following the death of his second wife in 1864, Samuel Shove went to live with the family of Elizabeth Everett Brown and Lucien West Conger his stepdaughter and son-in-law in Galesburg, Knox County, Illinois. With the Congers he found all the loving care and diligent attention that his advancing years, combined with his helpless condition, were necessary for his comfort.8

Webb, age 22, also a Jeweler, the 81-year-old Samuel Shove, Elizabeth Conger's stepfather, and a domestic, Mary Reil, born in Ireland, age 30.

The Crayton Hall Conger family also lived in Chicago Ward 5 in 1870, probably fairly near, since both families were enumerated by the same person only two days apart. In the other Conger household, Crayton was Lucien's brother and Louisa (Shove) Conger was Elizabeth's half-sister and Samuel Shove's daughter.9
