R3. EZEKIEL FLEWELLING
  Again, with Ezekiel, we enter an area in which hypothesis is the best which can be offered at this time, It is certain that Ezekiel was Robert Flewelling's son; and, according to Robert's will, his eldest son. The question is whether Ezekiel had any children; and, if so, who were those children.
  The surname, Flewelling, and its variations would appear to have been engendered in Westchester Co., NY after the American Revolution by Robert's family. Thus, in later years, it is reasonable to believe that those with that surname are descendants of Robert. Robert had four known sons, (at least according to the theories offered here): Ezekiel, Robert Jr., Francis and Joseph. With Joseph's family clearly in New Brunswick, we can easily eliminate him as the progenitor of Flewellings in Westchester Co. after the Revolution. In the 1810 census returns of New York State, for example, we can find a Robert Flewelling in North Castle; while in the same year, in Yorktown, Westchester Co, there is a Robert Flewelling and a Robert G. Flewelling. In Yorktown in 1820, there is a Robert and a Robert Jr., suggesting that the Yorktown Roberts are father and son. The senior of these must be the son of Robert Flewelling of North castle (the subject of this work, not the one in the 1810 census.) In essence, we have one too many Roberts if Ezekiel had no children. It is possible that the extra Robert was a son of Francis, but Francis, when he returned to New York State, seems to have remained in Fishkill.
  After a great deal of thought on this matter, and others, I can reach no firm conclusions, only a 'feeling' about what might be most likely. It seems as if Robert Jr., son of Robert of North Castle, lived in the area of Yorktown, and that his descendants would be found there, in Croton Falls, and in the Mount Kisco areas.
  The Robert in North Castle in 1810, and in subsequent years, would appear to be the son of Ezekiel. Accepting these premises does allow things to fall into place in the best manner so far, and provide a line of least resistance. Accepting these premises as basic guides, one finds that Robert, Jr.'s family were firmly settled in one general area for several generations. Those Flewellings found in North Castle in later years seem mostly descended from Robert, son of Ezekiel.
  The next problem is to account for other Flewellings, especially in the northern part of New York State. While the family of Robert Jr. appear to be large and burgeoning in the Yorktown area, the family of Ezekiel appears limited to that of Robert in North Castle. I have decided, therefore, to use Ezekiel as a dumping ground for unknown Flewellings. This is not as arbitrary as it seems, and there are trivial, but genuine reasons for doing so. Take the case of Benjamin W. Fluelling, who later goes to Upper Canada. It is almost certain, by a process of elimination that Benjamin W. was descended from Robert Flewelling of North Castle. Considering his date of birth, he. was either a grandson or great grandson. Since he was a Quaker, it seems unlikely that he was descended from Francis, who by what is known of his life and burial seems to have left the Society of Friends permanently. Clearly, he was not a son of Joseph, and could not be a grandson. From Robert Jr.'s will, and census returns, it seems extremely unlikely that he was a son or grandson of Robert Jr. This suggests that Benjamin W. Fluelling was a son or grandson of Ezekiel. This conclusion is added to by such trivialities as the fact that one of Benjamin W. Fluelling's daughters was Amy 0., apparently named after the Amy Ogden who married Ezekiel.
  Benjamin W. is not alone in northern New York. At the same time, there are several other contemporary families in nearby locales. It seems as if a specific family unit of the greater family of Robert of North Castle moved to that region sometime shortly after the Revolutionary War. There are reasons for believing it possible that the children of Ezekiel might have done so.
  Ezekiel Flewelling would appear to have been born sometime between 1733 and 1745 (IGI has 1747, ca. 1736 in `north Castle TWP' and `Long Island City' ca. 1735), with the first date probably being closest to his actual year of birth. He married Amy Ogden, daughter of William and Martha (Gilbert) Ogden. William Ogden was a farmer in North Castle, and named Ezekiel as one of his executors in his will, but when the will was probated about 1783, Ezekiel had died. Therefore, Ezekiel died about 1783. The IGI gives the date of marriage variably as ca. 1758 in "Long Island City", ca. 1763 and 1771 (a shock to some of their older children), none of which I would take seriously.
  Amy, at this time, would not have been too much more than 40-45 years old, and may well have married again. If so, it is possible that she and her second husband (or even herself without having married again, perhaps with a brother, or other family) moved (with other Quakers) to northern New York. If so, then she would have taken the younger children with her, perhaps leaving Robert, son of Ezekiel, in possession of lands in North Castle.
  These theories are weak, at best, and reflect the lack of effective investigation in New York on the Flewellings. What they do offer is the simplest, if not necessarily correct, explanations of several factors involving Flewellings throughout New York State.
  Since this was first written in 1988, a Benjamin Flewelling who married Hannah Ogden has been offered as another son of Robert and Maplet Flewelling. The basis for this premise is not given, and I am particularly concerned that, since Hannah Ogden is supposedly a sister of Amy Ogden, William Ogden apparently fails to mention him as a son-in-law. Those who have noted his mention of Ezekiel could not have missed another Flewelling. While I have included Benjamin as a possible son of Robert, I do so with very mixed feelings. If he existed, those who I guess may be the children of Ezekiel could as easily be Benjamin's. Since I am reluctant to accept Benjamin's existence, I have continued here to assume that the following may be Ezekiel's children.
  In the long run, the problem is one of a single generation, and the people listed below are probably descendants of Robert and Maplet Flewelling, and their relationship accurately described. That is, Benjamin W. Fluelling is probably still Robert's grandson, it is the intervening generation that is in doubt, not the relationship.
  Accordingly, it would seem that at least some of the sons of Ezekiel and Amy (Ogden) Flewelling might be:
R31. ROBERT FLEWELLING b. ca. 1770, m. 1st? "FANNY" (b. ca. 1774, d. ca. 1815?), m. 2nd? NANCY BRUNDAGE?
R32. JESSE FLEWELLING b. ca. 1765±, d. ca. 1845±, m. LYDIA FULLER (b. ca. 1774)
R33.
OGDEN FLEWELLING b. ca. 1776±, m. BETSEY TYCE
R34. BENJAMIN W. FLUELLING b. 180CT1780, d. 21SEP1857, m. MARY WEEKS (b. 22JUL or 27AUG1783, d. 4MAR1839), sister of Tamar Weeks and possibly d/o of John and Ruth Weeks
R35. JOHN FLEWELLING
  R31. ROBERT FLEWELLING
  Robert Flewelling b. ca. 1770. Robert's date-of-birth is derived from the age groups into which he is classified in the census returns for North Castle of 1790, 1800, 1810, 1820.and 1830. His sons are assumed from those Flewellings who appear in the later census returns of the area with him. It is also known that he had at least four daughters, but some names are unknown, as is the name of his wife. Allen D. Flewelling suggests that she was Nancy, and that her maiden name was Brundage. He adds that, "Robert, the father, is in Franklin Co, Indiana in 1840 and 1850." Richard Flessner (Flewelling GenForum # 7, 7OCT2000) suggests that this was Robert's second marriage, and that there may have been a first wife whose name is unknown; but who was b. ca. 1774, and d. by 1810. The notes to [R317] below suggest that this first wife was "Fanny", and that she died after 1813, but before 1817. Richard adds that Robert was in Bloomington Grove Twp., Franklin Co., Indiana in 1850; and that some children may have remained in New York State. Accordingly, it would appear that his children were:
R311. AMY FLEWELLING b. New Castle, Westchester Co., NY 23DEC1791, d. 28JUL1840, m. 23AUG1817 THOMAS RAYMOND (d. Metamora, Franklin Co, Indiana)
R312. EZEKIEL FLEWELLING b. 1794, d. ca. 1839, m. PERMELIA? (b. ca. 1801)
R313. JOB FLEWELLING b. ca. 1811, m. 1st ELIZABETH; m. 2nd HANNAH
R314. GEORGE FLEWELLING b. ca. 1805±
R315. EZRA FLEWELLING b. ca. 1810
R316. WILLIAM FLEWELLING b. ca. 1812, m. ELIZABETH is another son suggested by Allen D. Flewelling, "William, son of Robert and Nancy is in Marshall Co, Indiana in 1840; in Franklin Co, Indiana in 1850 and in Lake Co, Illinois in 1870." Was also m. Franklin Co., Indiana 26MAY1836.
R317. daughter b. ca. 1815-20. It is suggested by a query of  Norm Merritt at Cathryn B. Fahey's web site that: "Robert Flewellin married "Fanny" and had a daughter Jane, or Elizabeth, born 5 Mar 1813 in North Castle, NY. She married Samuel Foster. She died 25 Jan 1892 in Armonk, NY", and he refers to Jane/Elizabeth's death record amongst others as his source. Since there was only one Robert in North Castle/New Castle/Armonk old enough to have a daughter b. 1813, she is presumably the daughter of this Robert.
R318. GILBERT BRUNDAGE FLEWELLING b. 5APR1817, m. Franklin Co., Indiana 26MAY1836 SARAH ANN WIGGINS (b. 1818)
R319. PHOEBE C. FLEWELLING b. ca. 1820
R31J. JENNET FLEWELLING b. ca. 1825
R312. EZEKIEL FLEWELLING
  Ezekiel Flewelling b. 1794 was in the 1830 census of North Castle, there appear the families of Robert Flewelling and Ezekiel Flewelling, with Ezekiel presumably being Robert's son. In the 1840 census, Robert is gone, but there are three families, those of Job, George and Permelia Flewelling. Permelia is presumably the widow of Ezekiel. In the 1850 census, Permelia is described as a widow, and her youngest child is age 11. This child was b. ca. 1839, yet Ezekiel apparently died before 1840. Therefore it seems Ezekiel died about 1839.
   In 1830, Ezekiel has two Sons. In 1840, Permelia has two sons and a daughter, in 1850, Permelia has one son and a .1 daughter, and in North Castle, there is also a young man  with a family, James Flewelling. The ages throughout are consistent. enough to allow us to believe that the same immediate family is concerned each time. By 1850, George and Job had left North Castle. It would appear then that Ezekiel m. Permelia (b. ca. 1801), and their children were:
R3121. JAMES FLEWELLING b. ca. 1823, m. HANNAH (b. ca. 1824)
R3122. EZEKIEL FLEWELLING b. ca. 1835
R3123. MARY FLEWELLING b. ca. 1839
R3121. JAMES FLEWELLING
  James Flewelling b. ca. 1823, a shoemaker in North Castle in 1850, m. Hannah (b. ca. 1824.) Their children were:
R31211. JAMES A. FLEWELLING b. ca. 1845
R31212. EZEKIEL FLEWELLING b. ca. 1848
R31213. SARAH FLEWELLING b. ca. 1849
R313. JOB FLEWELLING
  Job Flewelling, in North Castle in 1840, m. 1st Elizabeth; m. 2nd Hannah; had one son and three daughters.
R314. GEORGE FLEWELLING
  George Flewelling m. Elizabeth, in 1840 had two sons. and two daughters.
R318. GILBERT BRUNDAGE FLEWELLING
  Gilbert Brundage Flewelling is included here at the suggestion of Allen D. Flewelling, (Flewelling GenForum # 51, 5OCT2000), and of Dean Flewwellin, (Flewelling GenForum # 62, 5OCT2000.) Both have borne with my speculations, and I am very willing to accept theirs. Added to their information is that of Barbara Sue. (# 24 and # 25, 23MAY2000), and of Richard Flessner and material at sites:

parts of, Descendants of Thomas Benge,  by Sue Peckinpaugh. This summarizes as: Gilbert Brundage Flewelling b. 5APR1817, m. Franklin Co., Indiana 26MAY1836 SARAH ANN WIGGINS, lived in Fayette Co, Indiana in 1850, in Marshall Co, Indiana in 1860, and in Kankakee Co, Illinois in 1870. An old set of notes based on a communication from Dan and Mary Flewelling of Oklahoma suggests Sarah was b. 1818, and lists some of their children.
  My notes, from some years ago, are based on LDS family sheets, a Family Bible, funeral chapel records and death records concerning John Niles Flewelling as passed on to me. These identify John's father as Marion John Flewelling m. Fanny Wiggens. Allen states that John Niles Flewelling had a son, John Marion Flewelling. I can only surmise that recent investigations have corrected errors and misreadings in transcription, and will tend to follow those most recent opinions. There are still confusing issues to be dealt with.
  IGI has a William Wiggins Flewelling b. Franklin, Indiana, 13JAN1840. This William m. Katherine Esther Walters and had a daughter: Cora May Flewelling, b. Kempton, Livingston Co., Illinois 20AUG1867, m. Pontiac, Livingston Co., Illinois 4NOV1886 Frank James Earing. An Angeline A. Fleuwilling b. ca. 1873, m. (or of)  Kampton (or Kempton), Ford Co., Illinois ca.  1894 George Earing.
  An Email (11MAY2001) Julie Hansen Freidhof tells us the brothers and sisters of William Wiggins Flewelling, giving a list:
1. WILLIAM WIGGINS FLEWELLING of Herscher, Illinois, whose children were:
11. ANGELINE FLEWELLING m. GEORGE EARING
12. DRUSELLA FLEWELLING m. LESLIE EARING
13. CORA MAY FLEWELLING m. FRANK EARING
14. JENNIE MABEL FLEWELLING, went to Northwest Iowa in 1899, m. JULIUS HANSEN

5. ANGELINE C. FLEWELLING
6. JAMES N. FLEWELLING

8. JOHN FLEWELLING
9. MARION FLEWELLING
J. HENRY FLEWELLING
This bears some correspondence, but also contradictions, as there is a John and Marion Flewelling, a James N. (Niles?) Flewelling. It would seem that William Wiggins Flewelling, and his siblings, may well be children of Gilbert Brundage Flewelling, but more information is needed to be certain, and to identify individuals. At least some children of Gilbert Brundage and Sarah Ann (Wiggins) Flewelling seem to be:

R3187. THOMAS McFARLAND FLEWELLING
  Thomas McFarland Flewelling b. 5SEP1854, d. 1FEB1928 "of Cloud, Kansas", bur. Iowa? The following is relevant: "CLARA MAE (MAY) FLEWELLING b.

Possibly connected with: TEMPERANCE DAISY FLEWELLING b. Kansas City, Jackson Co., Missouri, m.

R3211. JOHN WESLEY FLEWELLING
  John Wesley Flewelling b. 1APR1827 Marion Co., Ohio or Dowagiac, Cass Co., Michigan, d. .1913, m. 1st 1852 Margaret Burk Williams (b. 16JAN1828 Bethel, Clark Co., Ohio), d/o Isaac and Mary (Burk) Williams; m. 2nd Mary M. Hogue (b. ca. 1836), d/o William and Sarah (Kyle) Hogue. The following is taken from, Portrait and Biographical Record of Berrien and Cass Counties, Michigan, Biographical Publishing Co., Chicago, IL, 1893, pp. 362-365; and I am indebted to Marian Perlot for referring it, and to Harriet Eagle for tracking down the publishing information.
"JOHN W. FLEWELLING is engaged extensively in raising and shipping stock, as well as in general agricultural pursuits, and is the owner of a finely-improved farm located on section 5, Pokagon Township, Cass County. As a stock dealer he has been successful, and for fourteen years or more has conducted an extensive business in that line. His biography," which we will now briefly review, affords another illustration of the fact that industry and good judgment will almost invariably bring their possessor abundant material success, although at the commencement of his business career he may have neither capital nor friends.
  Born in Marion County, Ohio, April 1, 1827, our subject is the son of John and Catherine (DePew) Flewelling. His paternal grandfather, Jesse Flewelling, was either a native of Wales or of Welsh parentage, and spent his life principally in Ontario County, N. Y. He and his wife, Sarah, reared six children, namely: John, father of our subject; Richard; Harrison; Morris; Sarah, Mrs. E. Dewey; and Mrs. Maria Shepherd. The father of our subject was born in Ontario County, N. Y., in 1794, and was reared to manhood in that place. Although quite young when the War of 1812 commenced, he enlisted in the defense of our country and served with valor until the close of the conflict. He was also a participant in the Black Hawk War under Gen. Harrison. he fortunately escaped uninjured in the latter war, but in the War of 1812 was wounded by a stray bullet.
  After his marriage to Catherine DePew in Ontario County, N. Y., John Flewelling removed to Ohio and located in Marion County. He was a general mechanic, and followed that trade throughout his active life. In 1831 he went to La Grange Township, Cass County, making the trip overland with wagons, and after his arrival purchased eighty acres, which he proceeded to clear and improve, He sold and bought several farms in different townships of Cass County, but finally purchased sixty acres in Pokagon Township, where he remained until his death, which occurred January 22, 1869. A Democrat in his political belief, he held many important offices in his township and county. He was a member of the United Brethren Church, and a man whose upright life proved the sincerity of his religious belief.
  The first wife of John Flewelling was Catherine, daughter of Jesse and Sarah DePew, all of whom were natives of New York. Four children were born of this marriage, one of whom died in infancy. The others were Amasa, who died in 1849; Lyda, who married Peter Brady; and John W., of this sketch. After the death of his first wife, Mr. Flewelling married Ellen Brady, who bore him eleven children. The subject of this sketch remained at home until he was twenty-one, when he commenced to work by the month and continued in the employ of others for four years. His first purchase of land consisted of eighty acres in Pokagon Township, which he subsequently sold, and bought his present farm of one hundred and thirty-six acres.
  In 1852 occurred the marriage of Mr. Flewelling to Miss Margaret Williams. Eight children were born of this union, as follows: Mary, Mrs. William Jenkins; Hilda, who married Frank McCoy; William; Louisa and Austin, deceased; Isaac; Andrew, deceased; and Maggie, the wife of F. A. Ireland. After the death of his first wife, Mr. Flewelling married Miss Mary, daughter of William and Sarah (Kyle) Hogue, natives respectively of Pennsylvania and Ohio. The paternal grandfather of Mrs. Flewelling bore the name of John Hogue, and was born in Ireland, emigrating thence to the United States, where he afterward resided. One son has blessed the union of Mr. and Mrs. Flewelling, Lyle, a promising young man of ability and enterprise, who now cultivates the home farm. In his political preferences Mr. Flewelling is an active supporter of the platform of the Democratic party, to which he gives the weight of his influences and ballot."
Presumably, much of the family history is based on material given by John W. himself. The list of John W.'s siblings suggest certain things. For example, Lyda was probably the next eldest surviving child of his father, John. The Amasa, b. ca. 1849, was probably not the Amasa, d. 1849; but may have been a child of the second marriage, named after his deceased brother.
  That John W. apparently believed that Jesse was either born in Wales, or of Welsh parentage, tends to reflect similar concepts once held in other branches of the Flewelling family; and either indicates an abiding tradition of the families ultimate Welsh origins, or a growing awareness of the origins of the surname. It is unfortunate that he was unable to confirm if Jesse Flewelling had been a Quaker, as this would have been strong evidence of his I relationship to Robert Flewelling of North Castle. A search of Quaker records in northern New York might do much to expand knowledge of this part of the family, especially those of the Farmington Meeting.
  It is interesting to note that this is one of several branches of the Flewelling family which ended up in Michigan, others going there from New Brunswick and Ontario.

is the biography of Joel Layman of Section 12, Berrien Twp., Berrien County, MI.; formerly of Virginia. In this is mentioned that he, and his wife, Ellen Jenkins, had a son; HENRY F. LAYMAN, b. 1851, m. MARY "FLEWALLEN", resided on Section 23 and had four children.
  Also, from the same source, and transcribed at:
http://cgi.rootsweb.com/~genbbs/genbbs.cgi/USA/Mi/BerrienBios/53
is the biography of Frederick First of Pipestone Twp., Berrien County, MI, originally of Westphalia. His wife, Louisa Kuklehan (also of Westphalia, whom he married in 1853) and he had a daughter, LIZZIE S. FIRST, the wife of CHARLES "FUELLING", and the mother of one child, residing in Indiana.
  Presumably Mary and Charles were members of the above family. A number of names in these biographies of Cass and Berrien Counties resemble those associate with Flewellings/Flewwellins elsewhere, especially in New York State. Some of these are: Tompkins, Swayze, Green, Devoe, Sprague, Smith, Pine, Griffin, Rouse, Barnes, Ferry, Moore, Fowler, Lathrop, Stoughton, DePew (Depue), King, Storms, Hoag, Mott, Benge and Tabor. None are uncommon enough to state any specific principle, but these names, as well as names of obvious New Netherlands origin, are found in New Brunswick and in Ontario as well as in Westchester Co., NY where Flewellings are found. They are indicative of group movements of inter-related families. Swayze, Sprague, Smith, Pine, Griffin, Rouse and Mott are names found on Long Island, many in early Hempstead. Some of these biographies indicate (as in the case of the DePews) origins in northern New York State. The Hoags had been specifically Quakers, and specifically from Dutchess Co., NY, and were connected with the Motts. The Hogues, however, originated in Ireland, and came by way of Pennsylvania.
  R34. BENJAMIN W. FLUELLING
  Benjamin W. Fluelling b. 18OCT1780, d. 21SEP1857, was a Quaker, and therefore most likely descended from Robert Flewelling of North Castle. He was born before Ezekiel Flewelling's death, and does not appear to have remained in Westchester Co.; and therefore seems unlikely .to have been a son of Robert Flewelling Jr. Since Robert Sr.'s two remaining sons, Francis and Joseph, apparently left the Society of Friends, it seems that Benjamin W. would not have been a Quaker if he was their son. This line of reasoning, thin as it is, plus other factors, suggest that Ezekiel's family moved northwards in New York State after his death.
  Benjamin W. m. Mary Weeks, whose father has been said to have been John Weeks, and whose mother was Ruth. Mary was b. 22JUL or 27AUG1783, and d. 4MAR1839, and her sister was Tamer B. Weeks. This Weeks family is most likely descended from Francis Weeks, who was born in Dorchester, Massachusetts in 1636, married Elisabeth Luther, and moved to Long Island, NY by 1657. Francis d. in 1687. Amongst Francis' children was Joseph Weeks, who m. Hannah Ruddick. Joseph's son, Samuel Weeks, m. Hannah Ruscoe, and lived in Westchester Co., NY, in North Castle. The Weeks family, on Long Island and in Westchester Co., can be found marrying into Quaker families, notably the Carpenters, Thornes and Underhills. Amongst Samuel Weeks' children was a John Weeks, who might be the supposed father of Mary.
  In 1810, Benjamin W. was living in Scipio, Cayuga Co. , NY. In 1818, he moved to the Niagara Peninsula of Upper Canada, now part of Ontario; and settled first in the Pelham Twp. area. About 1832, Benjamin W. joined the Hicksite Schism, and moved to South Norwich Twp., in Oxford Co., ONT.
  Amongst those who first sorted out this part of the family were John Paul Fluelling of London, Ontario, Paul Snell of Paramus, New Jersey (letter JUN1983) and Jill Jamieson of Woodstock, Ontario. John mentions a cemetery in Mount Elgin, Ontario, letters between 1820 to 1860 from Tamer B. Weeks to her sister, Mary, along with his own personal knowledge. Presumably, the dates above come from headstones in Mount Elgin. Jill Jamieson suggests that the 1851 census of Ontario show Benjamin as having died in that year of consumption at the age of 73.
     Judging from the Society of Friends letter, and from the dates of birth of Benjamin's children, it would seem that he moved to Pelham (St. Catherines), Lincoln Co., Ontario in 1818 or soon after. Dereham Twp. touches on Norfolk Co. where Jacob Flewelling lived, which explains the confusion with his son, also Benjamin. Different branches of the family often seem to end up in the same areas. I have heard of these separate branches insisting that they have no relationship, but recent evidence indicates that they are actually more closely related than suspected.
  Jill also refers to, The Passengers and Immigrants List Index: 1982 Supplement, which, in turn, refers to, McKenzie's Upper Canada Naturalization Records: 1820 -1850, p. 103. This indicates that a Stephen B. Flewelling came to Ontario in 1838, and was born in the United States. Also, Jill refers to a headstone which gives Stephen B.'s year of birth as 1819. The Friends letter clearly shows Stephen B., son of Benjamin W., as being born before 1818 (John P. Fluelling gives 1817), and it is possible that 1838 is a mistranscription for 1818. There are some contradictions here that need to be resolved. John indicates that Benjamin W. moved from Pelham to Dereham Twp., Oxford Co., Ontario, near Tillsonburg, in 1832, which may account in part from some discrepancy.
   Mrs. Helen Simpson was working next to me on microfilms at a local library. She knew Hilary Foskett, a prominent Flewelling genealogist, and through Hilary, knew me. She was searching microfilm M-3846 (presumably from Canada Archives in Ottawa) which dealt with records of the Religious Society of Friends, and found the following transcription which had been entered into the Pelham Meeting:

  In OCT1983, John P. Fluelling wrote:
  I have come into possession of parts of the old family bible. To be factual, these pages were stuck inside some of the letters. Some of the letters are so fragile that I hesitated to open them without professional help. The pages from the Bible were remarkedly preserved.
The information on these pages were written, as shown by internal evidence, by Benjamin W. Fluelling Jr. Benjamin W. Jr. spelt his surname "Flueling", and many members of the branch now use "Fluelling".

  Reference to the census returns of Scipio, Cayuga Co., New York shows Benjamin, two daughters under the age of 10, one son under 10, himself between the ages of 26 and 45, and his wife between 26 and 45. While Benjamin's son, in the Scipio letter, is given as Benjamin D. Flewelling, records found by Jill Jamieson indicate he was, in fact, Benjamin 0. Flewelling.
  A Tamar B. Weeks, b. 28MAY1801, d. 29MAR1890 is buried in the Quaker or Friends Cem. in the town of Ledyard, Cayuga Co., NY. at:
http://www.rootsweb.com/~nycayuga/cem/cem84.htm
Ledyard was part of Scipio until 1823. In an 1875 map of Ledyard, at:
http://www.rootsweb.com/~nycayuga/1875_maps/ledyard.htm
about the centre of the town, almost next to the border to Scipio, is a road going from the east to the lake in the west. On this road, in Lot 150 are two residences of S. Weeks, just west of these, on the same road, is the Friends meeting house on Lot 149 and at an interesection. Past the intersection is Lot 148 containing a cemetery, presumably the Friends Cemetery.
  Benjamin W.'s family adopted the spelling, 'Fluelling' , and this branch of the family, perhaps the only non-Loyalist branch in Canada, is known as the Fluellings of Norwich Twp.
  The Norwich Monthly Meeting of the Society of Friends kept records of birth, death and marriage, as well as lists in which ages were given, which acted as a sort of census. Jill has sent photocopies of handwritten excerpts from these records. At the head of one of these pages, Jill has written, Early Norwich Quaker Records; Births, Marriages, Deaths, Moves, Meeting Minutes, compiled by Darryl Bank, unpublished. From the writing, in the text, I believe the copies are from the original records, but the title given above makes me think that, perhaps, Darryl Banks had the originals photocopied and placed in a library. What I am trying to state here is that I believe the material I have received is a copy of the originals, rather than a transcription; and that, although the source of the material I have is not fully identified, it appears to have been a photocopy of the originals.
  On what is indicated as page 3, appears to be a part of a membership list. I should point out that, throughout these records, appear such surnames as Haight, Mott, Weeks and Cornell (or Cornwell); names specifically associated with Hempstead, Long Island, and with Westchester Co., N. Y.; supporting, although not confirming, my contention that this branch of the Flewelling family is a part of the migration of generations from Hempstead, to Westchester, to northern New York State and then westward. The page 3 list includes the following:

  Something which may have some bearing on the mysteries of Benjamin's origins, and of Flewellings in northern New York State, is a posting by Joe Chase (Weeks GenForum # 2414, 25MAY2001) which reads:
I found some information in the "History of Dane County, WI-1880" about members of the WEEKS family. C.T. WEEKS, farmer, P.O. Marshall; was born Dec 15, 1820, in Vermont; when 3 years old, his father, Joseph WEEKS, removed to Kendall, Orleans Co., NY; when 14 years old, he went to work in Genesse Co, NY, and in 1845, came to Wisconsin; staid one summer in Watertown, and returned to New York, July 1, 1847. Was married to Lovina LEWELLIN, who was born Aug 13, 1825, in Cayuga Co, NY, daughter of Lewis and Elizabeth (GEARHEART) LEWELLIN, and sister of George LEWELLIN, of Medina, Wis; came back again to Wisconsin in the fall of 1847. I'm no relation; just reporting a NY>WI link.
--Joe Chase
This suggests a change in the spelling of "Flewelling", and there was a Lewis Flewelling apparently connected with the family of Abraham Flewelling of Glens Falls, NY.

  Stephen B. Fluelling b. 24APR1807, d. 24OCT1842, m. 15OCT1834 Lucy Avery (b. ca. 1815, d. Lapeer Co., MI prior to 1910.) Lucy may have been the sister or daughter of Orin Avery, a witness at their marriage, and was from either South or North Norwich Twp. Lucy m. 2nd Norwich Twp., Oxford Co., ONT 5MAR1853 Isaac Dennis, s/o Joseph and Martha (Lepher) Dennis; and they had several children, and moved  Michigan, possibly about 1859 or later. (See Pam Pohly's genealogical site at:
http://www.pohly.com/tree/d0003/g0000008.html.)
  Don Jeffery's cousin found in the 1851 census of Norwich, Lucy (Avery) Fluelling [R342A] whose age was then 36. This indicates that she was b. ca. 1815. Her son, John D., is with her, age 17. Stephen B. is not there, indicating he may have died by then, as, in fact, we are informed above. This also indicates that John D. was their only surviving child.
  From the same person comes transcriptions from the 1861 census returns of South Norwich. On p. 38 is:
John D. Fluellen 38

Albert 1
  One would assume that Benjamin W. Jr. would know the date of Stephen`s death, as Stephen was his brother, and would accept the evidence of the Family Bible as incontrovertible. However, other documentation suggests other dates. Jill Jamieson provided copies of transcripts of pages from, Oxford County (Formerly Brock District) Ontario Canada: Surrogate Court Records: List of Estates, 1841 to 1870, transcribed from original wills at the Regional Collection, D. B. Wildon Library, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, by Mrs. James C. Moon, London, December, 1973; a copy in the Woodstock Public Library. Page 2 (presumed page number) gives Stephen's date of death as 250CT1842, and the date of probate of his estate as 22SEP1843. The executors were Benson Lossing and John H. Cornell. Wills of Oxford County: 1805 to 1870, compiled by Darryl Bonk for the Oxford County Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, 20JUL1980 gives Stephen Flewillin, died 250CT1842, executors: Benson Lossing and John H. Cornell, value of estate, 200 pounds. The, Early Oxford Co. Marriages & Death: 1800-1858: Book One; also compiled by Darryl Bonk, p. 10, shows Stepehn (sic) Flewallen of Norwich married 150CT1834 Lucy Avery of Norwich; witnesses: Orin Avery and Patience Peasly. The same source, p. 12, states Stephen Flewellin died 150CT1842. Thus, we have three separate dates for Stephen's death. I believe that the 150CT1842 last mentioned is an error. Also the Family Bible year of 1844 might be an error, leaving the 24th or 25th of October, 1842 as the most likely contenders.
  Stephen and Lucy had at least one child:
R3421. JOHN D. FLUELLING b. ca. 1834, m. 30AUG1859 TEMPERANCE SNELL (b. ca. 1840), d/o Jacob P. and Philomena [Philona, Phylona, Filona, Philene] (Weir) Snell

  Donald H. Jeffrey (JAN/FEB1983) sent an extract gathered by his cousin from, North Norfolk County Marriages, which gives the information:
J. D. Fluelling, 24, resident of Norwich, born in North Norwich, son of S. B. & L. Fluelling, married Temperance Snell, 19, resident of Norwich, born in North Norwich, daughter of J. P. and Philomena Snell, on 30 Aug., 1859.
  Paul Snell wrote (10MAY1983) to tell of his correspondence with Donald Jeffery and Dorothy Erickson. He had been researching the Snell family, and found a set of notes in the Norwich Historical Society Archives. Parts of these notes conveyed to me give John's year of birth as 1836, but Jill's investigation of census returns indicates ca. 1834. Jill also states that the census indicates that John was a Quaker. Jill has found references to John D. in the 1861 and 1881 census returns, and in the 1862, 1870 and 1874 directories for South Norwich Twp., oxford Co. In 1862 he held Lot 19 of Concession IX; in 1870, Lot 22 of Conc. XI; in 1874, Lot 15, Conc. X. While John was a Quaker, Temperance and her children were Methodists.
  Their children were:

  Another source are notes sent by Janice M. Weisz of Ann Arbor, Michigan, outlining her descent from Martin and Mary Ann (Fluelling) Moore. Janice came across a "two volume, 1,559 page book entitled, Andrew Moore and His Descendants, by John Passmore, published in 1897." She sent photocopies of pages 453 and 958 of this work. In this, Maryanne's maiden name is spelt "Fluellen". Certain pieces of information are confirmed, some information is added, and some (like the date of Rachel A. Moore's birth) are contradicted. From page 957 (transcribed by .hand) and 958 (photocopied), there is additional information from Janice.
  Also in, Early Norwich Quaker Records; Births, Marriages, Deaths, Moves, Meeting Minutes, on pp. 108-9 is:

  Amongst Mary Ann's descendants, the name is remembered as "Fluellen", possibly reflecting the transition from "Flewelling" to "Fluelling" within her family at the time. Harriet Eagle sends the following, taken from, Portrait and Biographical Album of Sanilac County, Chapman Brothers, 1884 (probably a similar work as that relating to John Wesley Flewelling [R3211] above.
  Andrew Moore, merchant, Postmaster, Notary Public and Conveyancer, proprietor of the Speaker Creamery, etc. located at the village of Speaker, Mich., was born Sept. 22, 1843, in Canada, and is the son of Martin and Mary A. (Fluellen) Moore. His father was born in Canada, his mother in the State of New York. They removed to Michigan and settled in St. Clair County, where they resided over three years; returned to the old homestead in Canada, where his mother died, in 1851. The father returned to Michigan and died in June, 1868.
  Mr. Moore was seven years old when his mother died. He remained under the management of his father until he was 21 years of age, when shortly he became a soldier in the service of the Union, enlisting in Co. F, 24th Mich. Inf. Vols., under Capt. George A. Ross, of Detroit. The command was assigned to the Army of the West, and was discharged July 8, 1865, at Detroit. He is now receiving $8 per month pension for disabilities contracted while in the service. He attended the Medical college at Ann Arbor during the winters of 1868-9 and 1869-70. In the fall of 1871 he fixed his residence in Speaker village, where he has since resided, with the exception of five months at Port Sanilac.
  He has been a citizen of Sanilac County since March, 1858, and is one of the oldest permanent settlers. He has been Drain Commissioner, Health Physician, School Inspector, etc. In the year 1883 he was elected Supervisor, and in 1884 was re-elected to the same position.
  His marriage to Augusta Hart occurred in 1872. She was born in 1847, in the State of New York, and is the daughter of John H. and Sarah (Hogg) Hart, both of whom were natives of England.
  Five children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Moore as follows : Darwin, March 14, 1873 (died Nov. 6, 1877): Wilfred E., Nov. 27,1874: Allan K. [sic: properly spelt, "Allyn"] , April 23, 1878: Martin A., Oct 8, 1880, and John H., Sept. 1, 1882. Mr. Moore is an earnest believer in the truths of modern spiritualism, as he believes they are taught by the "gentle Nazarene," and is a member of the order of Odd Fellows and of the Masonic Fraternity.
Their children were:

ALLYN KEITH MOORE
ALLYN KEITH MOORE -One of Sandusky's commercial leaders who built up a successful business which remains a. credit to the community, the late Allyn Keith Moore was a member of the firm of Moore and Carter, dealers in lumber and coal, operating yards at Sandusky and in three other communities in Sanilac County. Mr. Moore was also a vital figure in public life, serving as mayor for three terms, after some years as a member of the city council.
  A native of Speaker Township, Sanilac County, Mr. Moore was born April 23, 1878, son of Andrew and Augusta (Hart) Moore. His father, a general merchant and druggist in Speaker township, was born in the province of Ontario, Canada, and was thirteen years of age at the time his parents moved to Michigan. His mother had been born in Owega, Tioga County, New York. Arriving in Sanilac County in 1856, Martin Moore, grandfather of Allyn Keith Moore became one of the pioneer lumber operators there, and was an influential figure in public life in the early days of Michigan's statehood. Andrew Moore, his son, received a common-school education, and in his youth, was a teacher in Sanilac County schools. Desirous as he was of getting into service at the time of the Civil War, he found it impossible to enlist until March, 1865, when he became a member of the 24th Michigan Volunteer Infantry. With this command he served until. the close of the war and was honorably discharged in July, 1865. After the war he studied medicine, and after practicing for a short time, engaged in the drug and general merchandising business in that village of Speaker, Sanilac County. A history of that region published nearly forty decades ago relates that Andrew Moore "built up a most substantial and prosperous enterprise" and "commanded the unqualified confidence and esteem of all who knew him, as he was signally loyal and upright in all the relations of life." Like his father, he was active in public affairs. He .served in the offices of supervisor and clerk of Speaker Township. He was a Republican, and a member of the lodges of the Free and Accepted Masons and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. He retired from active business pursuits in 1904, and died on May 1, 1907, at the age of sixty-three. He and his wife, the former Augusta Hart, were the parents of the following children: 1. Darwin, who died at the age of four years. 2. Wilfred E., who became a farmer in Speaker Township. 3. Allyn K., of whom further. 4. Martin A., who became associated with Allyn K. in the lumber and coal business and was also a farmer. 5. John H., who became a bookkeeper with the United States Pipe Company at Bay City. 6. Benjamin W. who farmed near Sandusky.
  Allyn K. Moore attended the public schools of Speaker and completed a course at Ferris Institute in Big Rapids. In 1901 he entered the employ of the Anketell Lumber Company at Applegate in Sanilac County, and remained with that firm for eighteen months. The company then assigned him to the management of its retail lumber yards at Sandusky, where he continued for another year. In 1904 he became associated with his younger brother, Martin A. and Peter Carter, in the purchase of the lumber business of the firm of Cooke and Leonard, of Sandusky, which had been founded a year previously. Although the partners had but little capital at the time they acquired the business, they soon began to succeed and to expand. In September, 1912, they purchased the business of the McIntyre Lumber Company at Croswell, and from that time operated yards both at that place and in Sandusky. They later added yards in peck and Snover. Their was accounted for in these terms, in the history already quoted:
  The Moore brothers brought to bear much energy and executive ability in the development of the enterprise, and their efforts as coupled with their reputation in their home county, enabled them to make a success in the field where others had failed, and this in opposition to large lumber companies.
  The Moore brothers also purchased a farm of one hundred and sixty acres from their father's estate, this property lying adjacent to Sandusky, and the youngest of the brothers, Benjamin W., was given general supervision of this property, which encompasses some of the most valuable farm acreage in Sanilac County. A second commercial interest of Allyn K. Moore was the Sandusky Tile and Brick Company, of which he was one of the organizers and incorporators. This too became one of the important industrial organizations of the county.
  Mr. Moore took an active interest in community affairs and served for a time as a member of the Sandusky city council. About 1923 he was first elected to the office of mayor, and was twice returned to office, serving three full terms. He was a Republican in his politics. Fraternally affiliated with the Free and Accepted Masons, he was a member of Chapter No.145, Royal .Arch Masons; member of Sandusky Council No.77, Royal and Select Masters; member of Lexington Commandery No.27, Knights Templar; and member and past worthy patron of Sandusky Chapter No.368, Order of the Eastern Star. He was also a member of Sanilac Lodge No.511, Independent Order of Elks. He and his family attended the Methodist Episcopal Church.
  On June 17, 1903, in Speaker Township, Allyn Keith Moore married Miss Mabel A. Putney, who was born and reared at Speaker in Sanilac County. She was the daughter of Elmore and Harriet (Porteus) Putney. Both parents were natives of Ogdensburg, in northern New York State. Mr. Putney served three years as a Union soldier, in the 106th New York Volunteer Infantry. He participated in many important engagements. he was wounded in the neck and in the leg, the first occasion being at Cold Harbor, and the second at Winchester. he served as a member of the Michigan State Legislature in 1898-1899 from Sanilac County, where he had settled and devoted himself to farming shortly after the close of the Civil War. He retired in 1905, and he and Mrs. Putney thereafter made their home at Sandusky. Mr. and Mrs. Moore became the parents of five children: 1. Beryl Augusta, who was born April 23, 1904.2. Gertrude Harriet, born March 7, 1906. She is the wife of Cecil McAulay of Sandusky. 3. Ruth Elizabeth, born July 10, 1909, the wife of Nicholas Sprague of Rudyard. 4. Marion Helen, who was born on March 13, 1913, and died October 5, 1913.5. Mabel Anna, born on November 26, 1915. She is now Mrs. Dwight Mills of Sandusky. Mr. and Mrs. Moore reside at 116 West Sanilac Avenue, Sandusky. Mrs. Moore was one of the organizers of the Eastern Star Chapter in her community, and is past worthy matron of that chapter. She is also a member of the Literary Club.
  Mr. Moore's death occurred on May 30,1947. he leaves an exceptional record of achievement both in commercial activities and in the public life of his region.
The children of Allyn and Mabel are:

Gertrude was a school teacher in the Sandusky Community Schools for over 30 years. She taught her daughter, Harriet, in the fifth grade. She taught her oldest grandson, Robert Eagle Jr. (Bobby) freshman English. She started out as a grade school teacher and ended up the last few years of her teaching career teaching in the high school. She was my mother, and I loved her dearly, but many more people than myself thought of her as a "born teacher", one of the special ones that young people like and respect. My mother was a very strong woman emotionally. To this very day, I sometimes think, "What would mother have done in this situation?" She lived her whole life in this small, farming community; except for her college years. She was the one everyone in both her own family and my father's turned to when they had a problem. A very special and classy lady.
The children of Gertrude and Cecil are:

R3435321. HARRIET JOYCE McAULAY
  Harriet Joyce McAulay m. Robert Elwyn Eagle. She provided the information given here on the family of Martin Moore and Mary Ann. Harriet writes of herself (ca. 1988):
  Harriet has been the head librarian of the Sandusky Public Library for 20 years. A college drop-out for marriage, she has taken many, many library classes, and has a certificate with the State of Michigan to allow her the be Head Librarian without a degree. She is a member of the St. John's Episcopal Church, a United Caring (hospice) worker, a loving mother and grandmother. Her two hobbies are genealogy and books. She is a "people" lover and LOVES to talk, especially about genealogy.
  Her husband, Bob, died in 1985 after a seven month illness with cancer. Outside of their working hours, you never saw one without the other, so the last two years have been very hard, but by doing everything she can to keep busy, and with the help of very loving sons and their families, she is going forward -with a smile on her lips. She sold the lovely home she and Bob built in the country in 1972, and moved the 6 miles into Sandusky. No more winter driving on snow and ice. This was one thing Bob made her promise to do.
Harriet and Bob's sons are:

They moved to Big Bend, Wisconsin soon after their marriage, where Don worked for his uncle in the lumber business, and after a few years bought the business from his uncle. Three of their four sons are now in the lumber business with their father. Michael, one of the twins, is a deputy sheriff in Lake Co., Wisc.

R344. AMY 0. FLUELLING
  Amy O. Fluelling [R1J4A] b. 8OCT1812,, d. 8JUL1882, aet. 69 years, 9 months, bur. Pine Street Burying Ground, Lot 13, Conc. 9, (South) Norwich Twp., Oxford Co., ONT, near where the Pine Street Friends Meeting House was built in 1819*according to one set of sources, m.  Benjamin Gilbert [R1J4] s/o Josiah and Sarah (Outhouse) Gilbert, and most likely her second cousin.
   The perfect match between the headstone inscription and the given birth date (probably from a Family Bible or Quaker records) pretty much substantiates (with consideration of place and religion) that Amy O. Fluelling and Amy O. Gilbert are the same person. Also, her daughter, Tamar W. Gilbert, is most likely named after her aunt, Tamar Weeks. The 1851 and 1861 census returns confirm that Benjamin's wife was an Amy. O.
  The marriage date of 15AR1830 has also been attributed to that of Gilbert and Amy O., and needs checking. Since Tamar W. Gilbert is almost certainly Amy O.'s daughter, she married Gilbert by 1835, probably before. More on their descendants can be seen in the section on Elizabeth (Flewelling) Outhouse at [R1J4].The following are very likely all her children, with a slight element of doubt with James.

  Ida J. Gilbert b. ca. 1859, m. Tillsonburg, Oxford Co., ONT 31MAR1903 William Blake (b. ca. 1864), s/o John and Ann (Rice) Blake of South Norwich Twp. At a collection of, Ontario Marriages, especially at URL:
http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~maryc/part4x02.htm
is the following entry:
#014677-03 (Oxford Co): William BLAKE, 39, widower, farmer, Canada, S. Norwich, s/o John BLAKE & Ann RICE, married Ida GILBERT, 44, Canada, S. Norwich, d/o Benjamin GILBERT & Amy FLEWELLYN, 31 March 1903 at Tillsonburg
Presumably this is from a marriage register for Oxford Co., and confirms Ida as the child of Benjamin and Amy (there was some doubt), and that Benjamin's wife was Amy "Flewellyn". The surname, Rice, may have some bearing on the name of the mysterious Rice Flewelling of Norfolk Co., son of an even more mysterious James Flewelling.
R346. BENJAMIN W. FLUELING
  Benjamin W. Flueling, Jr. b. 19FEB1817 (or 1819) Cayuga Co., NY, d. 1890, bur. Mount Elgin Cem., Mount Elgin, Dereham Twp., Oxford Co., ONT, m. 8DEC1840 Mary Christian Snell (b. 2SEP1825, d. Dereham Twp., Oxford Co., ONT 3OMAY1899, bur. Mount Elgin Cem., Dereham Twp., Oxford Co., ONT), d/o George P. and Purlina [or. Pauline] (Reynolds) Snell. [George P. Snell, Son of Peter N. and Mary Snell, was the brother of Jacob P. Snell, whose daughter, Temperance, married Benjamin W.'s nephew, John D. Flueling.] In 1871, Benjamin W. was in Dereham Twp., Oxford Co., ONT; and in 1877 was on the North half of Lot 5, Concession 8.
  There was some question of Benjamin's middle initial. The Friends letter apparently has, "Benjamin D.", and Jill reported that his headstone reads, "Benjamin W.". Jill writes that the 1881 directory has "0.", the 1885 directory has, "with charming klutziness", "O'Fluelling", and the 1887 directory has just "Benjamin Fluelling". This is the spelling he and his family apparently used for several generations, and I have followed it where it seemed practical.
  .Another item concerns Benjamin W. Fluelling Jr.'s wlfe, Mary (Snell) Fluelling. It comes from the, Oxford Co. Surrogate Court Grant Book: 1897-1906, on microfilm 3265, through Jill Jamieson. It states:
Mary Christian Fluelling, Dereham, Widow, died 29 May, 1899, granted 14 July, 1899, executors: Peter Snell, farmer, Dereham, & Jesse Owen Fluelling, farmer, Tillsonburg.
and refers to the granting of administration of her estate to the named executors 14JUL1899.
  Dave Cooper (Flewelling GenForum 13MAY2001) offers some transcriptions of headstone inscriptions from:
Mount Elgin Cemetery, Mount Elgin, Dereham Township, Oxford County, Ontario.

[from a single headstone]
Benjamin W. Flueling born 1819 died 1890.  
Mary G. Snell wife of the above born 1825 died 1899.
Son Peter Bingeale Flueling born February 14, 1854 died January 29, 1924.
His wife Mary (Irwin) Flueling 1860-1946

Jesse I. born 1883 died 1883,
Hugh G. born 1887 died 1890,
Earl G. born 1889 died 1890. Children of Mary and Peter Flueling.

Louisa Ann Flueling wife of Marshall Yarington
born 1845 died 1865.

Roy Flueling 1884-1947.
These may probably also be found in, Mount Elgin Cemetery: Con. 4, Lot 11, Dereham Township, Oxford County, recorded by Oxford County Branch, Ontario Genealogical Society, summer of 1979. In this, the inscription for Mary is apparently given as `1897', but Dave's reading corresponds with the probation notice. On the other hand, a reference made by Jill (17OCT1983 ) to, Vital Statistics Selected From Oxford Co., (on microfilm), p. 85, # 18:
Fluelling, Mary F. d. 30 May, 1897 aged 73 years 8 mos., & 28 days (1825); res. 8:5 (Dereham Township), married, b. U. S. York State; d. of congestion of the brain (ill 10 days); Methodist; reported by carpenter & son Peter Fluelling.
Not an exact transcription, but altered to reflect the information within the entry. The date of birth derived from this information would be 2SEP1823 (the Family Bible gives 2SEP1825). Accepting the Bible as correct gives the sum:

  The 1861 census returns for Oxford Co., Ontario lists what appear to be two separate families with similarities and differences which makes it difficult to determine whether they are the same family or two different families. In Division 2 of South Norwich Twp. (pp. 46 and 47 of the return) is a strange group of persons living in a log one-storey building.

  Adam Spencer's religious affiliation is with the Society of Friends, Mary's husband is obviously Benjamin as one of her children is Benjamin Jr., and it would seem very straightforward except that there is another family in the same census in Division 3 of Dereham Twp. (p. 73 of the returns) living with a large McDonald family in a one-storey frame house.

South Norwich Twp., Oxford Co., ONT ca. 1844; m. 2nd Frances), s/o Alvinza (Althinra/Albinra?) and Caroline (Wilcox) Yarington. Of Benjamin and Mary's marriage, Norma E. Byrnes writes: (Email 23APR2001)  "In, Marriages solemnized by the Rev. Archibald Cross, Minister of the Canada Presbyterian Church at Ingersoll, it shows `M. Yarington, age 21, of South Norwich, s/o Athinra Yarington and Caroline Wilcox married on September 7, 1865 to Louisa Flueling, age 19, of Dereham, d/o Benjamin Flueling and Mary Snell. Witnesses were Matthew and Leonard Bixel of Ingersoll'." Jill (170CT1983) .further refers to, Oxford County Marriage Register: 1858-1869, (on microfilm) Book II, p. 2, which gives the 7SEP date and adds that the marriage was, "Solemnized by Rev. Archibald Cross of Canada Presbyterian Church at Ingersoll", and that "Athinra" might be "Albinra" Jill further adds:
In 1861 So. Norwich Div. 2, p. 25 Alvinza & Caroline Yarington appear en famille (150 A @ 7:26) with an eldest son "Marshall" b. (1844). The only freehold I find for him is, Oxford Gazeteer & Directory 1870-7, where "Manhall" is at 10:25 South Norwich Twp. In 1871 "Marshall" b. (1845) of German origin is in Div. 1 South Norwich p. 29 married to Frances (?).
There is some doubt about the date of marriage with various interpretations from 8JUL to 13AUG; but it seems as if there was some tragedy in which Louisa died within a short time of her marriage. Her headstone at the Mount Elgin Cemetery, Concession 4, Lot 11, Dereham Township, Oxford County reads:
