I'll just put it on here. I typed it all in yesterday, but when I pushed preview it didn't work for some reason and it all disappeared. I'll try again. If you want to order the film from your nearest Family History Center you can just go there and order "Crawford: Family tree", loose genealogical papers compiled by Lucinda Frances Stephens. There are two reels. The Connally info. is on reel #288184. I can also scan it & send to you. But here it is:


Connallys landed in Pennsylvania.
George Connally of Va. married Miss Oldham and two of their children were George and Thomas. Thomas went to N.C. and married Polly Price, daughter of Ed Price and Elizabeth Lindsey, and granddaughter of Wm. Lindsey and Jane Prescott. Prices went from Norfold Va. to N.C. Tom Connally moved to Chapel Hill, N.C. He gave two hundred acres of land toward establishing the Chapel Hill School (now University of N.C.). He and Polly Price had 11 sons and 5 daughters. He was a tall bony man and died in Guinnes Co., Ga. when 82 years of age, while on a visit to his daughter, Polly Strickland, and is buried in the Strickland grave-yard near Sewanee, 3 mi. from the Southern Road. His wife returned to Madison Co., Ga. and died soon after. Tom Connally was a recruiting officer in the Revolutionary War.
