Re: Another Ontario, Canada Flagler enters......

In Reply to: Another Ontario, Canada Flagler enters...... by Matthew Flagler of 106

My great-grandmother was Haida Frances Flagler, born March 18, 1886 in Wellington, Ontario, Canada.

Her father was Charles Albert Flagler who was born about 1848 in Ameliasburgh, Ontario, Canada. Her mother was Lucy M. Dingman. (Charles was first married to a Lenore Lazier).

His father was George D. Flager who was born Oct.18, 1815 in Hillier, Ontario, Canada. He was married to Nancy C. Cameron.

His father was Thomas Flagler (Captain) born about 1788 in Beekman, Dutchess County, New York. He also went to Adolphustown in Ontario, Canada. He was married to Nancy Roblin.

His father was Philip Flagler born Sept 08, 1761 in Beekman, Dutchess County, New York. This is my Flagler ancestor who left America and went to Adolphustown in Ontario, Canada. He was married to Anna Dorland.

His father was Philip F. Flagler born Oct. 11, 1731 in Beekman, Dutchess County, New York. He was married to a Sarah Anne Cornell.

His father was Philip Solomon Flagler born Aug. 21, 1701 in
Urphar, Wertheim, Mosbach, Baden, Germany (I'm not sure if parts of these names are hyphenated---I have looked it up on maps and I've found Urphar, but it's in a new province(?) now). Philip was married to an Anna Margaretha Winegar (although I have recently read that she may have been born Anna Margaretha Dopf and was only the widow of a Winegar, I don't know---my grandfather thought her name was Winegar).

Philip Solomon was the eldest son of the common ancestor of most Flaglers in the US and Canada today, Zacharias Flagler,
who was born about 1673 in Urphar and came to America in July of 1710. Philip's mother was Anna Elisabetha Ess. Given what you know about the origins of the last name, I'm sure you know that they were Palatine Germans and part of a large immigration of same to America during this period.

Philip and his father Zacharias were the only 2 members of his family to survive the crossing to America. Philip's mother, brother, and sister all died either during the trip or shortly thereafter.

Zacharias' father was Johannes Vleglar (Fleglar) born about 1645 in Urphar and his mother was Margarete Goetz born about 1650 in Urphar.

Johannes father was Viet Vleglar (Fleglar) born about 1620 in Urphar.

For these last 2 the name may have been spelled Vlegler.

Henry Morrison Flagler is also a descendant of Zacharias by one of his subsequent marriages. Sorry, I don't really know a lot about this part, as I have only traced my great-grandmother's lines of descent.

My great-grandmother never talked about her family at all. The family she married into looked down on those of German and Dutch descent. It took me years to find out about her ancestors and it's only thanks to my many cousins in Ontario, Canada and the information that they have posted to Rootsweb, Familysearch, and the former Kindred Konnections that I know anything at all.

If there's any information you'd like or names of people with Flagler information I'd be glad to help.
