Can anyone tell me about Matthew Flora (aka Flory) that lived in Monroe Co IN. Who are his parents? Any siblings?
So far i've come up with:
Matthew FLORA b 15 OCT 1784 PA d 27 FEB 1861 Monroe Co IN married Susannah Kutch b 1/4 NOV 1792 d 25 SEP 1845 Monroe Co IN. Matthew & Susannah buried Flora Cemetery, Clear Creek Twp, Monroe Co IN
After Susannah died Matt remarried 11 JUN 1847 Eliza OWENS b 1810 d 1896 Monroe Co IN Bloomington (IN) World, Apr 9, 1886, p. 4. Eliza Flora, aged 86 years, died at the county poor farm yesterday morning. This leaves 29 inmates in that institution. Bloomington (IN) Star, April 11, 1896, p. 1 An inmate of the poor asylum, Eliza Flora, aged 83 years, died last Wednesday of paralysis. This old lady had seen better days, but broken down in health, she found her way “over the hills to the poor-house,” then to a pauper’s grave.
The children i have for Matthew and Susannah are Nancy, Lucinda, Elijah, Sarah and George.
Matthew and Eliza had one son Isaac.

i've also found that Matthew and Susanna bought land in Monroe Co IN from Elijah & Elisabeth Elliott in 1828 and sold land in 1828 to William Henderson and Matthew and Eliza sold land to Elijah Flory in 1847.
