Hi Lorene (and Roger)
Lorene, I believe you have a typo error in your reply to Roger where you state that Samuel Flake died in 1820. I belive this date, based upon his probate records, is 1802.
Also as you stated, I too have never seen any verification or evidence that Samuel had a brother Henry, or came from New York. Actually, the evidence I have seen would tend to lead back to Virginia and the family of Robert Flake of that area. The evidence is a land grant to an individual named Samuel Flake in an area near the North Carolina-Virginia border (Granville District). THe name Samuel Flake I believe also appers in an early tax list of the Granfville district as well. At the moment I do not have either exact reference handy, but if memory serves me correct, both references were for a time prior to any reference to a Samuel Flake in the area of Anson County, and likewise, there is no further reference of which I know of a Samuel Flake in the Granville District area after references to Samuel Appear in Anson.

This does not prove that the references are all for the same individual, but it is much more than I've ever seen for placing him in New York.

Sincerely, Jay Stein

BTW, I'm descended from Samuel's daughter Deliah Flake who married Hard y Hooker. Samuel Flake, if I'm counting correctly, would be my greatgreatgreatgreatgrandfather. <grin>
