Ephriam Fluke, ~1823 - ~1870, Indiana

This looks like your Ephriam, but it is all I have found.

1860, Liberty Twp, St. Joseph, Indiana:

Fluke, Ephaim, 36, Penn
Fluke, Susonna, 31, Penn
Fluke, Mary, 9, Penn
Fluke, Sarah, 5, Penn
Fluke, Francis, (Male) 8/12, Ind


There is a Francis Fluck, age 9, in an asylum in Marshall County, St. Jospeh's southern neighbor, in 1870. The other inmates are blind, insane or idiotic. Facncis and two others have blanks in that column. Susanah may have dumped him off as an orphan; or, it might not be him. I can't find any of the rest of the family in 1870.

Francis' death record:

Francis M. Fluke
Burial Date: 08 Apr 1941
Burial Place: Niles, Michigan
Death Date: 05 Apr 1941
Death Place: Kalamazoo, Kalamazoo, Michigan
Birth Date: 20 Apr 1860
Birthplace: Indiana
Occupation: Mechanic, Retired
Marital Status: Married
Spouse's Name: Mary L. Fluke
Father's Name: Ephriam Fluke
Father's Birthplace: Germany
Mother's Name: Susanna Waner
Mother's Birthplace: Pennsylvania


Susanna Waner / Warner / Wamer
(There is a public tree on that has her maiden name as "Wamer") married a John McCartney in 1872. He died in 1880.

It would be in keeping with the times if Ephriam died about 1870, Susanah farmed the kids out, and married a man who already had a family. (John McCartney had children from a previous wife, who he divorced.)


Could thi sbe your Samuel?

This may be Susanah in 1880
