In Reply to: Re: ELIZABETH CONGER/ABIJAH ABBOTT by Shirley Ryan of 983

From a 5/13/1988 Athens,Ga newspaper clipping that my mom saved. I am not related to the Conger family.
A photo of a Conger tombstone.
Phoebe Tappan Conger wife of Abijah Conger born in New Jersey March 27,1781. Died in Athens,Ga April 1,1852.
And what appears to say, but covered in lichen, In memory of Phoebe T. Conger wife of Abijah Conger who died April 18-- (this part covered in dirt at base of tombstone). The stone was given over to Bob Brown, president of the Old Athens Cemetery Association. Phoebe and Abijah were his forebearers.
I hope this helps someone in the Conger family.
Jerry Bennett
