John W. Conway, my grandfather, was born in Mattawan,15 New Jersey and was older than his brother
William. He became a printer and finally a linotype foreman for the “Daily Advertiser” in Newark which
is no longer in publication.16 John was twice married. His first wife was Mary A. King, who died around
1883 or 1884 leaving him a widower with four children: Eleanor (Nellie), Elizabeth (Lizzie), Mary
(Mamie) and Joseph. John was also well-known for his gardening skills, maintaining a large backyard
garden at his future residence (383 Summer Ave), where he grew grapes and the largest turnip my father
had ever seen.
