Help I am trying to straighten out our Fly ancestors.My ggggggrandfather was John Fly Born in Northampton Co NC and D Williamson Tennessee, married to Sarah Jane Trader of Hartford County NC and d. Fly Tenn.
I am trying to track ancestry backward.I have been confused as to whether this John's father was William or Elisha and whether his mother was the Cherokee Cela/Celia.
Can anyone clarify all this for me?
My ggggrandfather was John and wife was Sally McCracken.Next in line was John L. who supposedly fought in the War and his wife Eliza Richards.
My gggrandfather was Joseph Laurence Fly and wife Janie Lee Ard.They had numerous children, among them my grandfather who was a judge in Dallas County and his brother who was a Commissioner of the FCC and one of the founders of the TVA.
