I'm hoping someone has some knowledge of or a clue to my FLING family.
I recently discovered my 2nd great grandmother's name from my great grandfather's death certificate. On it, it list's his mother as Mary FLING. Upon further research, it seems that her name was not or wasn't just Mary however --on the 1870 & 1880 census she is listed as Ruth and on the death certificates of my g grandfathers siblings she is listed as Ruth FLING Ruth E. FLING Elizabeth FLING in all she is listed as being born in Ohio.
So....Ruth Elizabeth "Mary" FLING b. Ohio m. John CURRAN b. pennsylvania and they had 10 known children John Patrick Mary b. 1855 Sarah William Stephen A. b. 1861 Francis M. "Dock" b. 1864 James Andrew CURRAN b. 1866 Ohio d.1946 in Lancaster, Ohio Charles Joseph all children born in Green Township, Hocking County, Ohio
