Your man is, in my records, #9416, listed as Lloyd F. Fly, b. 9 June 1900 in PA.There is a high probability that the Middle initial "F" was for "Fluck" as his mother was a Fluck. Father was Titus Shupe Fly, whose mother was a Shupe. Titus was son of George Mitman Fly, married to the Shupe. This habit of using the maiden surname for the child is strong in Pennsylvania, and is why I suggest the "Fluck" middle name for Lloyd F. Fly, b. 1900.
I can trace this individual back to Germany step by step.His grandfather's great-grandfather Johannes Floeth (in Germany, - Fleith on the ship's register of passengers, - and Fleith in early church records)(Fly in tax and Censu records) arrived in Philadelphia in 1752. The family is found in Bucks County after that.
Do you have the names of the parents of Lavina (Greene) Fly? How do you tie to one of the children of Lloyd and Lavina?Fill me in a little and I can do a pedigree for you from Johannes (John in German) down. Also I will be able to do group sheets down the pedigree. I am not looking at the record, so don't hold me to this, but I think I remember that your immigrant, Johannes Fleith, was born in 1724 in Neuneck, Kreis Freudenstadt, Wuertemburg, Germany. His German records are as "Floeth". Wife was Margaretha (Pfefferlin) Floeth/Fleith
As for kinship to the pirate, I think not, since Captain William was shipping as an Englishman and as a "Bos'n's Mate out of Bristol when he embarked on a career of Piracy.He was subsequently captured on the high seas, tried in Boston, and hanged in Boston. His body was hung in chains on the isle of "Nix's Mate" in Boston Harbor, to be as an object lesson to sailors who might otherwise have contemplated a life of piracy. Captain William undoubtedly was a cousin to us English-descent Flys, but the common ancestor must be back in England.
Nix's Mate was washed into oblivion by a subsequent hurricane.It is not to be found today.
