James Sevier Conway (December 9, 1798 - March 3, 1855) was a Democratic Governor of the State of Arkansas, the first elected governor of the state. James Sevier Conway was born in Greene County, Tennessee and was educated by private tutors and attended public schools. In 1820 he moved to Arkansas where he worked as a surveyor. He formed a surveying business with two of his brothers. Conway's company took over the land that would later become the city of Little Rock, Arkansas and he is known as the founder of that city.
