Thank you for all the pictures you have posted on the yahoo website.I'm interested in one picture in particular depicting the Flake Coat of Arms painted by Algene D. Flake Elliott.Do you know when that was painted?And do you know from what source Algene painted that Coat of Arms?Was she painting a replica of an original of some sort that she had?The reason for my questions, I am a descendant of Samuel Flake (born somewhere between 1701 and 1720)Samuel had 10 children:
John Flake (born 1762) Jordan Flake (born 1764) Samuel Flake (born 1766) Jemima Flake (born 1767) William Flake (born 1768) Thomas Flake (born 1769) Elizabeth Flake (born 1770) Delilah Flake (born 1772) Sarah Flake (born 1774) Elijah Flake (born 1778)
To my knowledge, no one has been able to "cross the water" before Samuel Flake and learn his country of origin.Therefore, I'm wondering about this coat of arms.If you have any further information, it would be greatly appreciated.
I am a descendant Samuel Flake (born somewhere between 1701 and 1720) who had a son Jordan Flake (born 1764) who had a son James Madison Flake (born 1815) who moved to Kemper County Mississippi, who then moved to Salt Lake City. James had a son William Jordan Flake (who settled Snowflake, Arizona in 1878--from his name was the "Flake" part of the town's name derived, Erastus Snow's last name was the other half of the town's name). William had a son James Madison Flake (born 1859). My great grandfather.
