Fourth Generation

22. George FLYNN17,45 was born in 1803 in North Carolina.45

George first married Selia Gaugh [Celia Gough}, 18 May 1822, Stokes Co, NC. Richd Guymon was bondsman; R. D. Golding a witness.

He then married Frances Johnson in North Carolina in 1829. His presence in North Carolina is a bit odd. His father is known to have gone to Kentucky between 1816 and 1820. If George was truly born about 1803, he certainly would not have been left behind. Did he go back to North Carolina at some point when he was of age? Or is he not a son of Laughlin?

Did George go first to Tennessee?
1830 Census. Sevier Co, TN
George Flynn, 1 male age 20-30 [he was 27]. 2 girls under age 5. 1 female age 20-30.
The two little girls weren't possible if had married Frances in Nov of 1929 in NC unless the little girls were not hers.

Some believe the Armstead Flynn living in Greene Co IN was a son of George - likely from an earlier marriage. He doesn't seem to belong George's brother Josiah. However, he isn't in the 1830 census with the George above and Armstead was born 1823 and should have been. Of course the Sevier Co TN seems not to be this George Flynn at all.

George & family also moved to Green Co IN in the 1830's.

1840 Census. Greene Co IN
George Flinn: 1m 5-10, 1m 15-20[probably Armstead], 1m 30-40[George]. 1f -5, 1f 20-30.

In 1850 Two of George's nephews, if he belongs in this family, Thomas & Josiah Junior, lived next to him.

George FLYNN and Celia GOUGH were married on 28 May 1822 in Stokes County, North Carolina. Celia GOUGH died before November 1829.

George FLYNN and Celia GOUGH had the following children:



Armstead FLYNN was born on 7 April 1823 in North Carolina. He died on 26 July 1897 at the age of 74 in Greene County, Indiana.

Armstead is buried in the Flynn Cemetary, Bloomfield, Greene Co, IN. His birth given as 7 Apr 1823, death 26 Jul 1897. An obituary exists. He married there on 4 Jul 1844 to Angeline Lewis. Armstead's wife is also buried Flynn Cemetery as, Eliza Emmaline Baker Flynn, b. 11 Dec 1830, d. 26 Dec 1912. Eliza's obituary does say they married about 1850, so she must have been a second wife.

I did not find Armstead in the 1850 census.
