Hello Adam et.al.
My stepdad's mother was a Flesher from Meigs Co. Ohio. She married a Sayre, also from Meigs Co. My parents, and also the Fleshers, had ancestors from the same areas in Virginia (now West Virginia).
In my resarch I have come across the Flesher name - and in connection with the Jacksons - in the histories of a couple of counties. I have been working on-line so don't have hard copies and don't remember just exactly which ones they were. You might try Ritchie, Hardy, Harrison, Lewis and Wood counties in WV, then move to the counties bordering the Ohio River. My stepdad mentioned relatives in the Wheeling area.
I stumbled onto a brief history of each of the WV counties using Google.com searching for Hacker's Creek settlement pioneers. Don't remember which site it was. The Fleshers were mentioned there in conjunction with the Jacksons.
If I ever get hard copies of the documents I have been coming up with via the net, I will look for the Fleshers (my stepdad's brother is still alive and interested) and let you know. I do believe your line and that of my stepfolks is related - the names are just too much alike.
