Fifth Generation


27. Thomas FLYNN was born on 6 November 1784. He died on 31 January 1867 at the age of 82 in Lawrence County, Indiana.

Thomas said to have married Mary Jones circa 1833. However, the Indiana Marriage Database has Thomas Flinn married to Mary White, 20 Jun 1833, in Lawrence Co. Mary's mother would seem to be living with them in 1850. It is possible he had an earlier marriage and married two Marys. A Thomas is sometimes seen as a son of William Flinn - I have found no evidence of two Flinns named Thomas of about this age.

Thos. Flinn, 1m age 50-60. 1f age 40-50, 2 females age 70-80 [one is surely Sally White; was the other older lady Thomas's mother? perhaps Eleanor didn't died as early as indicated.]

On the same page in 1850 are what is believed to be the three children of Thomas - George Flinn, b. ca 1813 in IN, wife Catherine; Aaron, b. 1814 in IN, wife Jinsey; Moses, b. 1826 in IN, wife Lucinda. All of these children were born some years before the marriage to Mary White. Since two of Thomas's brothers are named Moses and Aaron, it seems most likely Thomas belongs in this family.
