In Reply to: Flukes/Pflukes in Rochester, New York by Cheryl Freeman of 160

Hi Cheryl,
I found a bit of "Fluke" info at the Rundel library: the death of a Mary Fluke in 1861, the death of Mrs. Alice Fluke in 1865, the death of Mr. A.G. Fluke in 1884 (in St. Catharine's, former resident of Rochester, brother to Mrs. Wm. Begy, Mrs. Peter Linen, and Mrs. F.J. Begy of Rochester).
You may already have those little obits. I saw your book there on Begys! (We have already corresponded; I'm a descendant of Alice E. Begy.) If you are interested in the obits, let me know. I'm sure my husband could figure out how to send them to you or put them somewhere that you can access (he took digital pics).
Also, I found pictures from 1925 of a Miss Helen Pfluke of Rochester at There are more that she is a part of, where she is not listed by name. It was taken during the Sodus cherry harvest. Apparently more than 100 schoolgirls went to Sodus for two or 3 weeks (with chaperones) to pick cherries. I don't know how Helen Pfluke is related to these other Pflukes, but I assume she is.
