I am looking for any information pertaining to Dorcas Flynn
who married John McCrum/ McCrumb

Dorcas was the daughter of Andrew Flynn and a Hawkins
she was born 1810-1812 in Va. and died bef 3-29-1863 probably in Greenup Co., Ky

married 7-28-1832 Greenup co., Ky
to John McCrumb
born 1791-1800 and d. bef 5-7-1841
he was a ferry boat operator on the Little sandy river

owned 400 acres of land on banks of the Little Sandy River near Greenup, Greenup co., Ky
about 4-5 miles out.
operated a ferry boat from Greeup Ky --drowned in a storm 1841
NOTE: 1884 flood destroyed the bridges on the Little Sandy --The ferry was in operation until late 1840's

John and Dorcas were the parents of
1) Elizabeth Flynn McCrumb 1833 -1913 Cass co., In
m. William Patrick Staggs
m2) William Fitzer 1822-bef 1910 Cass Co., In
2) Mary McCrumb 1835 - m: William O'Neal
3) naomi McCrumb 1838-1870 m: William A. France
4) Catherine "Kate" McCrumb 1840
5) a son born 1836-1840 --this son was found on 1840 census --since there is no mention of him in the family records
we must assume he died in infancy ???

Interested in connecting and sharing info with anyone who has any of these people in their lineage
