1. I'm descended from Sarah James Flake, daughter of James Madison Flake.
2. Have any of you ever been to Snowflake, Arizona? Anticipating the trip, I made reservations to stay in a B&B that was the former home of Osmer D. Flake. When my husband and I checked in, I asked if they were descendants. No, but they knew some. They made a call and here comes cousin Dean (father of Representative Flake), who gives us a private tour of James Madison Flake Jr.s home (cuz we're family). They couldn't have been more welcoming. We also re-acquainted ourselves with Sank Flake, the one who participated in the cross country wagon train a few years ago. We'd met him previously when the train came through Las Vegas. Snowflake is full of Flake cousins who would love to meet you.
3. There are a couple of Flake books available in Snowflake, and one (collector's item) in the museum that lists all known descendants, at the time of printing. Our Snowflake cousins didn't know anything about the Sarah James Flake descendants BUT, my Dad was listed in the antique book's history (it's on a table in the parlor). You might be in it too. Osmer wrote it.
Well, I'm rambling so I better stop.
Love to all of you. Cousin Sharon.
