FLAACKE ORIGINAL SPELLING OF FLAKE?

I had a telephone call from an elderly lady and she said that there is a book in the family history center in Safford/Thatcher that has a descendancy to the Flakes of Snowflake from two brothers that came from England and their family is from Holland and this line spelled Flake as Flaacke. The brothers arrived in MA. and then went seperate ways one went to the Carolina's.
The other stayed in MA. She is 98 and seemed very informed and urged me to check into this. Does anyone know anything about this?
