Hello Fly Cousins! A special hello to Cousin Jim! Hope your eye surgerygoes well. I found some new-to-me information on my gt.gt.gt.grandfather William B. Fly. it states that he purchased land in Illinois on Jan.6,1842. It was stated acres: 3615 purchase price: 125 total: 4519. May everyone have a blessed new year! A personal note, my 20 year old daughter got married Dec. 20th, her husband is in the army and stationed at Ft. Bragg , N.C. I'm planning to visit and do some research in N.C. Jim is there any place I need to visit in N.C. that would be interesting to me? Sincerely, Gloria p.s. I have a new e-mail address: email@example.com .
