About Cullen Thomas Conly

"Cullen Thomas Conly, born in County Antrim, Ireland in 1820, stowed away on a ship and came to America in 1836. As a young lad of sixteen he (upon being discovered aboard the ship) jumped overboard and swam ashore off the coast of Georgia to begin a new life in the "land of the free." He and Dicy eventually made their way to the northwest corner of Louisiana where they parented ten children who went on to produce over 1,500 descendants as of the 1977 count. That number has continued to multiply in the intervening years, but no current count has been made."
