The 1880 US Federal Census of Massilon 4th Ward (Stark County, Ohio) contains the following record FLURY Joseph (39), Blacksmith, 10 months unemployed during the census year, place of birth: Switzerland FLURY Cathrine (32), Wife, Place of birth: Ohio, Place of birth of her parents "El. France" (some of the records below contain information like "Elses Fr.", "Elsass Fr." and "Elsass" which could mean Alsace, France) FLURY Nellie (4), daugther, Place of birth: Ohio
Joseph FLURY was born in Switzerland abt 1841. Probably in 1875/76 he married his wife Cathrine (* abt 1848 in Ohio, as daugther of immigrants from the Alsace, France). In 1880 Joseph was mostly unemployed, so perhaps he and his family lived together with the next listed familiy of Ferdinand and Jospehine BINDLER, immigrants from the Alsace too.
A speculation (without any proof): Joseph could be > Josef FLURI (* Oct 10, 1840 in Herbetswil, Solothurn, Switzerland) son of Urs FLURI and Barbara ALLEMANN and the younger brother of - Jakob FLURI (* July 14, 1824), blacksmith and - Niklaus Josef FLURI (* July 12, 1834), blacksmith who both immigrated on the same ship in 1866 and lived relatively close to this Joseph: - Niklaus lived 1870 also in Massilon City (Stark County, Ohio) - Jakob lived 1870 in Dover an 1880 in the Olmsted Township (both Cuyahoga County, Ohio)
Please contact me, if you have any further information which supports or denies my speculation. Anton
