Sorry its taken soooooooo long to respond to you. I thank you for your information and will look into it further.
As far as I've been told, Staats changed his name to Flatbush because of a fight with his brother (do not recall the name right now, but will find it). I also know that there are rumours that this man had 7 families (mostly now localized on the East Coast). My family is the only line from him that lives in the Pacific Northwest, as far as I know. I will do some more digging.
