Thank you so much for posting this information! It's always wonderful to learn more about the early pioneers of my hometown. Robert Flournoy nearly made it to his 90th birthday before he died. Unfortunately, Angeline died several years before. And, only one of their children (Maggie) lived past the age of 5 years. She died at 29. Something must have taken the rest of the children (Johney, Fannie, and Lucy) all at once, because they all died within 3 weeks in 1865. As far as I know, Robert was the last of the Flournoy's in this area. He and Angeline were early ranchers in the Genesee Valley, just east of Taylorsville (founded 1852). The bridge leading to where their ranch once stood (on Genesee/Beckwourth Road) is named for them.
