Michael, Fantastic! I had not known about these records!
By the way, I'd forgotten just how much Mary Medley mentioned the Flakes in her American Bicentennial celebration book, "History of Anson County Anson County North Carolina 1750-1976!" She even mentions that as a small girl she knew your ancestor Elijah Flake. She includes a picture of him in the book and mentions the history of the Battle that Elijah had written that you have so wonderfully transcribed. I'd forgotten all about her mentioning it. I apparently had seen it though as I'd highlighted it! <grin> She also includes a short biography of Green Flake and relates the story of James Madison Flake, etc. I'd forgotten that too. I had remembered that she show the site of Samuel's home on her map as well as the site of the Flake Corn Gin Mill, but I'd not remembered the other references. The old brain just "ain't" what it used to be <grin>.
Again, thanks for these other references! It will be interesting to see how they may tie in, time line wise, with the references to Samuel Flake down in the Granville District land deeds and what type of migration pattern it may show for Samuel Flake going from Virginia to the Granville District and then to Anson County.
