According to William Conley's great-grandson, "William Conley was active in local politics in Grayson, Ky. in the 1900s-1910s. He was elected to the offices of Marshal of Grayson and Jailer of Carter County on the Republican ticket. He appears in a few news stories I copied from the library in Ashland last summer. Around 1915 he sort of drops off the radar - all I know of him after that is that he was divorced from Maud Biggs in 1917, married for a third time to Pricy Elswick in the late 20s, divorced her soon after, and died in 1934. He ran a grocery store during and after the time he was in politics."
