Hello.. I am interested in the Clermont Co. Ohio Flora's.
I have just recently found out that my Great Great Great Grandmother was a Flora by birth, which she went by Florey.
She was the daughter of George and Margaret Flora.George was the son of David Flora, brother of John Flora, children of Adolph Flora.
Here's my problem.Catherine was a Flora by birth, she had two son's John and Rufus Napoleon Florey.As it it looking now with all my research, she was never married and the boys were born out of wedlock.On Rufus's marriage certificate it is listed that George Florey is the father and Kate Florey as the mother.. which makes sense since her name was Catherine, but there are NO marriage records for Catherine to anyone in between the years of 1850-1874.This has been a big issue in my mother's family for years.The story goes that John and Rufus were illegitimate.I'm beginning to think it's the truth.If this is the case then I am at a dead end to find out who the father actually was.
Do you have any suggestions on which way to go now?I just saw your querry for the Clermont Co OH Flora's and thought I would give it a shot.
