A FAMILY ARCHIVE of rare images has come to light showing Rebecca Jane "Jennie" (Minerd) Conley Woodmancy, her husbands, foster daughter and grandchildren. Originally from near Mill Run, Fayette County, PA, Jennie and her first husband John Conley relocated from Pittsburgh to Nebraska and later made their home in Chicago, where in 1900 he worked in a glue factory.
