For those collecting information about William Fly, the two deeds show some of his financial dealings.I try to collect every deed because you never know when something mentioned in them may be useful. #3 is a report on an estate sale and I thought it would be interesting not just because of the Fly names, but also because of the Oakleys.(Jeremiah N. Fly m. Oakley) #4 indicates that by 1822 Wm. Fly was a Capt. and #5 shows one of William Fly's occupations-Justice of the Peace. Here are the few items about William Fly, b. Sept. 11, 1794 in Northampton Co., N.C.:
