See this researcher's file:

Abraham FLORY B: ABT. 1739 Rapho Twp, Lancaster Co., PA>Joseph 1765 Middletown, Lancaster + Catherine Unknown>Joseph 1788 + Jane Craig>James (only child)
JAMES FLORA, retired hotel-keeper, P. O. Danville, was born in 1817 in Columbia County, Penn. He is the son of Joseph and Jane (CRAIG) FLORA; Joseph Flora was a miller, and followed that as a business for many years. James, our subject, was his only child, and was reared in Montour County, attending the subscription schools. Jane FLORA lived to the advanced age of ninety-eight; Joseph FLORA died before our subject was born, therefore the latter's knowledge of his father is limited. They were of Scotch-Irish descent. Our subject has made farming his occupation, but kept the hotel for twenty-one years. He still owns the farm in Anthony Township, the hotel in Valley Township and other real estate. He was married, in 1841, to Sarah Ann, daughter of John SMITH; she is of German origin. They have six children now living: Jane E. (wife of Samuel BEAVER), Sally Ann (wife of Grier ACOR), Mary C. (wife of Wesley PERRY), William, Hannah (wife of Henry BILLINGER) and Caroline (wife of Harry A. GRIENER). The family are members of the Reformed Church, and in politics Mr. Flora is a Democrat.("History of Columbia and Montour Counties Pennsylvania" Battle - 1887 Valley Township pg. 217)
