My mother, Esmeralda knew a lot about our family history. But she hasn't been with us for nearly 50 years. But maybe your grandfather Daniel knows something.

My grandfather Daniel might know something, but he lives in New Jersey. I'ts too bad Esmeralda died, she would have known a lot i think. But my aunt Danielle lives with him, so maybe I could talk to her and see if she can get info out of him

Hi Justin,
My dad Daniel did know Silvia for some time. But ha did say that Esmeralda knew the family history well. Dad's taking a nap now, so i'll have to ask him later.He did tell me that Silvia's father was George Coningham and that George's father was Scottish.

I found out that George Coningham's father, John Coningham (Cunningham) was Scottish and that he might have been called Cunningham.

I'll have to see if I can contact any Coningham cousins, they would be the best at knowing the family history.

My mother did know one of George's descendants, Albert Coningham, but I have lost touch with him. I would have to find his contact info. I have also found out that George had a son, John George, probably the ancestor of Albert Coningham.

I have finally talked to my dad. He confirms that George Coningham is British, of Scottish origin. I talked to an uncle of mine, Timothy Coningham (John George Coningham's grandson) , and gave me much more information. He says that George Coningham's father was originally named John Cunningham and was from Scotland. John had a sister named Mary, and she married a Frenchman.
George's father = John Coningham (Cunningham) (born around 1825, died in 1884)
John's father= Charles Cunningham (born around 1790, died in 1841)
Charles' father= David Cunningham (lived from about 1750-1810).
My uncle Tim has parts of the will of David Cunningham's father, David Cunningham (Sr.). He was born in 1721, interestingly in Virginia. This should help a lot.

This info is great. Maybe you should invite Tim to geni. He could fill the gaps in our ancestry.
