Children of Elisha Fly and Margaret (Peggy) Allman

5a. John Allman Fly 5 (Elisha 4, John 3, Jeremiah 2, William 1)

John was born about 1783 in Northampton County, North Carolina and died after 1858 in his home county.  In 1802 when he was about 20 years old, John Allman Fly married Milly Sykes, a daughter of James Sykes and Charlotte DeLoatch.  At the time, John may have been living with his mother Peggy and, in honor of his marriage Peggy signed a deed of gift to him giving him his portion of her personal property.  John’s father, Elisha Fly, had died sometime between 1790 and 1800, but no records of this have survived.

5b. Aaron Allman Fly 5 (Elisha 4, John 3, Jeremiah 2, William 1)

Aaron was probably younger than his sister, Milly, and certainly was younger than John A. Fly.  He was born about 1792.  According to U.S. Army military records Aaron Allman Fly enlisted on January 8, 1814 at age 21 in Jerusalem, Virginia Jerusalem is now called Courtland and is the county seat of Southampton County, Virginia.  Aaron was described as being 5 feet, 11 & 1/2" tall.  He had grey eyes, dark hair and a fair complexion, and was born in Northampton Co., NC.  He served for the duration of the war and received bounty land in Illinois for this service.  [Read More]

5c. Millicent Fly 5 (Elisha 4, John 3, Jeremiah 2, William 1)

There is no direct evidence that Milly was a daughter of Elisha and Peggy Allman Fly, but there are circumstantial indicators that she was a relative.    She was probably born in the mid to late 1780s and was older than Aaron Fly.   At some time, married a Wells man, but his name is not known. The records are scarce and Milly’s relationship to the Wells family of Northampton Co. is not clear. [Read More]
