Thank you so much Laura.The census data and occupations pulled this together for me. I never would have thought that the family had moved so far westward from Watertown and Waltham to Worcester county and back again.That is what had me doubting the lineage at first.And yes, the Flagg family is a formidable one.
Now that I have entered the info into my database, I also came to the conclusion, based on dates of birth, that William Flagg (1786-1856)& Olive Newhall are the parents of George Augustine Flagg (1828-1899) Mary Chapin Flagg (1829-1906) William H Flagg (1830-1901).
The younger William and his wife Emily C. never had any children.Should their death info ever come on-line, please let me know for, confirmation purposes, if our assumption is correct.
My husband is a Newhall descendant.It will be interesting to find out if he is somehow related to Olive Newhall. Do you have any info regarding her pedigree?
