Emperor Kenzō

Kenzō was the 23rd Emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. No firm dates can be assigned to this Emperor's life or reign, but he is conventionally considered to have reigned from 485 to 487. Prince Woke to become Emperor Kenzō, is said to have been the grandson of Emperor Richū, the son of Ichinobe-no Oshiwa, he would have been quite young when Emperor Yūryaku shot the arrow which killed his father during a hunting expedition. They found refuge at Akashi in Harima Province. Histories from that period explained that the two brothers sought to blend into this rural community by posing as common herdsmen, it is said. This intermediary re-introduced the lost cousins to Emperor Seinei, who had by this time ascended to the throne after the death of his father, the former Emperor Yūryaku. Seinei invited both brothers to return the court. At Seinei's death, he had no other heirs than Prince Oke and Prince Woke, whose father had been killed by Yūraku. At this point, Woke wanted his elder brother to become Emperor.

The two could not reach an agreement. The great men of the court insisted that the other of the brothers must accept the throne. Prince Woke agreed to accept the throne. Kenzō is considered to have ruled the country during the late-5th century, but there is a paucity of information about him. There is insufficient material available for further study. Kenzō's contemporary title would not have been tennō, as most historians believe this title was not introduced until the reigns of Emperor Tenmu and Empress Jitō. Rather, it was Sumeramikoto or Amenoshita Shiroshimesu Ōkimi, meaning "the great king who rules all under heaven". Alternatively, Kenzō might have been referred to as ヤマト大王/大君 or the "Great King of Yamato", it is recorded. The location of the palace is thought to have been in present-day Osaka Prefecture or Nara Prefecture. Murray reports that the only event of major consequence during Kenzō's reign had to do with the filial respect he showed for his murdered father. Kenzō arranged to have his father's remains retrieved and re-interred in a mausoleum appropriate for the son of an Emperor and the father of another.

Kenzō died at age 37, reigning only three years. He too had no other heirs, his Empress was Prince Oka-no-Wakugo's daughter. The actual site of Kenzō's grave is not known; the Emperor is traditionally venerated at a memorial Shinto shrine at Osaka. The Imperial Household Agency designates this location as Kenzō's mausoleum, it is formally named Kataoka no Iwatsuki no oka no kita no misasagi.

Elias Nelson Conway was an American politician who served as the 5th Governor of Arkansas from 1852 to 1860. Conway was born in Tennessee. Born into a political family, Elias Nelson Conway was the younger brother of Henry Wharton Conway, who served as territorial delegate to several Congresses, James Sevier Conway, who became the first governor of Arkansas when it was admitted as a state in 1836; when he was a boy, his family moved from Tennessee to Missouri. Conway attended Bonne Femme Academy in Missouri, his older brother Henry died in 1827 as a result of a duel with Robert Crittenden. In 1833, Conway moved to Little Rock, where his older brothers had settled, he studied surveying. In 1835, he was appointed as the state auditor, served until 1849. In 1844, Elias Conway was offered, declined, the Democratic nomination for governor; when offered the nomination again in 1852, he accepted. With a successful campaign, he was elected as Governor of Arkansas, he was reelected to a second term in 1856.

His administration focused on physical improvements to the state: roads and other infrastructure to encourage development. He eased the state's financial problems; when Conway left office in 1860, the state treasury held a surplus. Conway formed the Geological Survey of Arkansas, commissioning Principal Geologist David Dale Owen, to survey the territory west of Little Rock and provide a report on the area. The'Natural Steps' were first written about and drawn by Owen, in his Second Report of a Geological Reconnaissance of the Middle and Southern Counties of Arkansas.
