I finally found my records concerning William, George and Nathan Roshell (Rochell) Fly.They were in Maury and Carroll Co., Tenn in about 1828.Yes it is possible to be in two separate places in one year.George Fly was born Nov. 29 (no year given) in Bedminster, Pa.the son of Joseph Fly, who is buried at Kellers Church, Pa. You may check the census records, cemetery, marriage ad court records in these states.
I sent this info to James W. Fly several years ago, however, I do not know why he insists he knows nothing about this family and wants immediate documentation.Really doesn't matter.
Also, one of them was the parent of George, Lavinia ad others who were orphans and a Walker was their guardian.
I have always felt there were more than one family of Flys in West Tennessee - mainly because none of the informaton on Elisha Fly makes much since.
There were John, Jeremiah and Elisha Fly from North Carolina, there was William, George and Nathan Rochell Fly from Penn., and since there has been so much confusion about who is an indian and who is not, there are many Flys out there from Georgia.
Yes, this blows all the Fly theories and "guestimates" sky high.I sincerely wish new researchers will take the challenge and look for these records.If you know nothing about research, here is a good starting point.There are a lot of perfessional geneologists that post on this page that would be happy to help you.NEVER take one person's information as being the gospil.It is a lot more fun to share what you do know and learn what you don't know.I started tracing my father's family when I was 12 years old, knowing his name, his mother's name and one aunt.So jump in with both feet - you will meet a lot of new friends, make a few enemies, and be personally involved in making your family history come alive!
