The "Family Tree Book" to which Wm Joiner refers contains numerous other factual errors.I found from census records that two of Samuel Flake's children-- Thomas and Samuel migrated to Kershaw SC.The book states that Samuel went to Mississippi and that Thomas was a Rev War vet who sold his land in 1804 in Anson Co and went West.
Here is the information that I found on Samuel:
Samuel Flake built a historical home in Camden SC now called the "Greenleaf Villa."According to the Camden Chronicle of 26 Mar, 1969, the home "was originally built by Samuel Flake around 1815.This house, though located on the busy part of Broad Street, offers seclusion to the owners because of its Charleston style architecture."
The original deed, in book F page 3 dated 12 November 1808 names John Kershaw, atty in fact for Robert Henry and James Kershaw, Surviving Trustees of the estate of the late Col. Joseph Kershaw.They sell to Samuel Flake Town Lot #721 - 100' X 286'6" for $200 Bounded:North- Lot #720 West - Lot #750 South- Lot # 722 East - Broad St.
The next sale of the property takes place on 12 Apr 1826 when Sarah Flake (widow of Samuel Flake), Leroy Jones, and Sarah Jones sell to W. E. Johnson (book K p. 528) for $3000.

Administrator's Bond dated 25 Jun 1816 Know all Men by these Presents that we, Sarah Flake of Beaver Creek, Widow, Joseph Patterson, of same Creek, and Reuben Patterson of Camden, all of Kershaw District and State aforesaid are held and firmly bound unto Samuel Mathis....
Thomas Flake witnessed the appraisal of Samuel Flake's estate on 1 Oct 1816.
The only documented child that I have of Samuel and Sarah Flake is Sarah, who married Leroy Jones.
Of course, they had others, and I suspect that at least one of the sons migrated to Franklin AL.However, I do not know this for sure, since Franklin is a burned county.
I have found no documentation that Elizabeth Gilbert married Samuel Flake JR.If she did, then she was a first wife.
