Because you again referred to my reference to "Demons" in a message in the past, as if I had not answered your request for a retraction, I knew that you did not note the posting that I did under date 22 Nov. 1999# 346 under the subject: Re: Lucy and Anna. I addressed your objection to my choice of language. I thought you would be mollified and accept the innocuuous intention in an entirely sympathetic letter.
In that message I explained the innocuous intention of the phrase "take control of your demons" as meaning "don't let a BAD day get the better of you.Take control of THINGS in your life ALL POSSIBLE.
I hope you will go back and print out the referenced message and re-read it.Then will you PLEASE stop chiding me for every little thing that you are letting put your nose out of joint as the saying goes.
THAT MESSAGE was one of TOTAL SYMPATHY.Why do you NOT realize when someone is acting friendly and completely sympathetic to you and your expressed difficulties.
My late wife Vivian suffered terribly from Migraine headaches, and I spent YEARS coping with her coping with intractable chronic migraines.Middle of the night calls to the doctor who would come and give her a shot for nausea mixed with a shot for sleep , both mixed with a shot for pain. THEN she would sleep it off.But she'd be groggy for 36 hours after she had the shot, - into when she would wake up headache-free, if she was fortunate. Just thought you ought to know that THIS one knows about migraines; and I also know more than I'd have preferred about how difficult it is to return to NORMAL, whatever THAT is supposed to mean, after such an attack.
You keep telling me that you have "emptied the bag" for me on the Orphan's records for George Fly and Lavinia.Are you saying that what you saw was an INDEX record only?How can someone go back to find the FULL Court Record and learn the DATE, THE COUNTY, THE TEXT of the record and hopefully the dead parents' name(s)?You just have not given me anything I can find a loose end to grab onto to LEARN what this record should be telling us.
With regard to the "placing" of George and Nathan Rochell, I have, within recent days laid that out for you; and it puzzles me why you have not noted it. However, you asked again, so here goes. I think I have proven that Jeremiah Nicholas Fly, b. 1807 was the son of John JESSE, b. ca. 1788. (I will send you my monograph on that with the Chronology I am preparing for you.) I am looking to find whatever may be out there to throw light on the possibility that George and Nathan Rochell Fly were brothers of each other and brothers of Jeremiah Nicholas Fly, all being sons of JESSE Fly, one of the TWO in the Davidson Co. 1811 & 1812 Militia records. The OTHER Jesse married Delany Whitford in 1808, appears in the Bedford 1820 Census, and migrated to Illinois in 1826. That marriage Bond is co-signed by Jesse's foster-father, John Dixon Fly.It is indexed "FEY".
But the John JESSE Fly, Lucy's brother as I see it, is the Fly male killed by the panther in the story that my monograph deals with. That Jesse falls out of sight about 1823.The two last girls to marry (previously thought to have belonged to Elisha and Elizabeth) are, in reality daughters of Jesse, instead. I'm not stopping to look up their names. The hour is too late; my eyes are going shut.
It's pushing midnight.Goodnight.
James W. "Cousin Jim" Fly
I BEG you, - NO MORE CHIDING for my choice of language. No offense will EVER be intentional. I apologize in advance for any inadvertance. Think POSITIVE. PEACE!
