The Rev. Norman Flythe was my inspiration for this project, but many others have contributed over the years. People have sent old photos, notices from newspapers, letters, marriage records and many other items. The list is long. Ralph Hill, Frank Fly, Darlene Fly Ames, Wally Fly, Elwood and Shari Flythe, James W. Fly, Carla Whitehurst Odom, Joe Young, Arthur Harris, Jr., Kym Topping, Dale Reddick, Annemarie Piland, Joe Stout, Mary Falcon, Mary Catherine Flythe, Dolores Dean, Beth Cofield Beatty, Tommy Colbert, Cathy Halsey, George Flythe, Leresa Norman, Gloria Baran, James Gipson, Douglas Pickett and Clarence Michaels.
Finally, this site would not exist without the constant guidance and assistance of Michael Risch. He is a very talented descendant of the Edgecombe Co., North Carolina Fly and Flythe family. Michael not only designed and published this site, but also provided some data and lots of questions about the content. I cannot thank you all enough!
