The Flagler family of the United States was founded by Zacharias Vlegellar (Flegeler, Flagler)of werthiem,a walled town of Franconia in the Palatinate. In the late 17th century that region was ravaged by the armies of Louis XIV and as result large numbers of families stripped of all possessions by a deastationg war,migrated to America.Zacharias Vlegelaar (1673-1720/1)reached the valley of the Hudson in 1710. He settled in Dutchess Countyand was survies by three sons,the ancesters of all of this name in the U.S. and among those descendants have been men of national prominence in the army and the civil life.
Two of the three sons off Zachariah Flagler made pioneer homes in the 18th century near Pleasant of the two sons Zacharias, the second (1719-1807),married for his second wife in 1747 Sarah Barton.and thier son Solomon Flagler (1760-1839)bought the Joshua Ward House at Pleasant Valley some time after 1825 and before 1829.This Solomon Flagler married in 1780 Esther Ostrom (1761-1813)and of their eleven children a number moved from Pleasant Valley and established wider connection ....the activities of a grandson of theirs ,Harry Harkness Flagler (1830-1913)as one of the founder of the Statard Oil Co.
