: My G-G-F was James Spiers McConkey born
: in Northern Ireland (probably
: Newtownards) circa 1855. His father
: was John McConkey, principal of East
: Street #2 National School (d. May 6,
: 1893) and mother was Eliza Ann (d.
: July 9, 1888). Am trying to find a
: connection between the names Spiers
: and McConkey.
