This Conley Cemetery is located on Wilson Creek Road on the old Jimmy Wilburn farm.  Wilson Creek Road is actually a Grayson mailing address.

From the intersection of Rt. 9 and Rt. 1/7 travel north .9 miles to a right onto Rt. 1910 at Pactolus, travel .5 miles to a left onto Wilson Creek Road, 
travel 2.6 miles. The old Jimmy Wilburn farm is on your left. Ask permission at the house, then follow the road past the barn and veer to your left. 
You will come to the Alamander Howard cemetery first then the Conley Cemetery.

There are 6 known graves in the cemetery. It is in poor condition but plans are being made for a fall cleanup.

Notes: Florence Conley was Florence Stone Conley born in Floyd Co. KY, she was the widow of Thomas A. Conley. William was the son of Thomas & Florence. 
William's wife was Iowa Spangler. Jenny Prayter (Prater) was the daughter of Thomas & Florence Conley. 

According to the 1900 Census Eli Dean was born Sept 1818. I can't find a death date for him. I'm sure it can be found on the CW Pension Application. 
I can't find a connection between Eli Dean and the Conley family other then they both lived on Wilson Creek at the time.
