I am descended from William Land Flemister (1795-1868) and his wife Micha Wilson (1801-1863), daughter of Joseph Wilson and Sally/Sarah Pennington. I would like to talk with anyone else descended from this line. I have a pretty fair number of desendants and might be able to help.
William Flemister was born probably in Wilkes County, GA. He lived in Jasper County, and then in Wilkinson County, GA. He was planning a move to Arkansas at the time of his death.
The children of William and Micha Flemister: 1. Wilson S. Flemister (1825- after 1860) m. Mary Eliza Kerney. May have gone to Texas.
2. Sarah Ann Flemister (13 SEP 1825-22 MAR 1888) m. Jeremiah Madison Gilstrap. This is my line. They moved to Morris County, TX in 1874.
3. a daughter
4. William C. Flemister (CSA), (1829- c 1880) m. Margie Ann Solomon. They went to Texas, she returned to GA.
5. Emaliza Flemister (1832- aft 25 JAN 1869) m. Britton Conine.
6. Abel O. Flemister (1834- aft 1880) m. Mary Jane Solomon. Seems to have lived in Wilkinson County, GA.
7. Catherine Sophia Flemister (5 SEP 1834 - ??) m. John William King
9. Mary Flemister (1837-??) m. James F. Aldredge. They went to Texas.
