In Reply to: Elizabeth Jane & Nancy Fluharty-(W)VA by F. Swisher of 98

Nancy (Fluharty) West, who remarried to Richard Lemley, was the daughter of William Fluharty (c1790-aft 1860) and his first wife, Mary __ (see sketch of Lemley in Hardesty's Wetzel Co).

My supposition has always been that Jacob Swisher was the son of Jacob "R" and Drusilla (Morgan) Swisher of Catawba, Marion Co, and that his wife Elisabeth Fluharty was the daughter of Henry and Sarah (Eddy) Fluharty, but I don't have any evidence for either placement. Henry has an unidentified female on 1830 and 1840 census of Elisabeth's age group, while William does not, if I remember correctly. It seemed to me when I was working on Fluhartys that the household of Henry was the only place she could fit, given that family lore insisted she was née Fluharty.

William (b c1790) and Henry (b 1803) were (I believe) brothers, sons of Noah and Nancy (Reeves) Fluharty. William moved out to Wetzel quite early, not long after 1820; Henry moved there about the middle 1840s after selling his land just outside Fairview, Marion Co. There is no known full record of either family, and nearly all of the Fluharty relationships in this period (c1750-1840) are essentially guesswork.

How these men are related to my own ancestor Daniel Fluharty (c1794-1874) of Marion co, I don't know, but Daniel lived next door to Henry and bought part of his farm. One of Henry's sons married Daniel's granddaughter in Wetzel Co. I suspect Daniel was a brother to William and Henry, but the evidence is very unsatisfactory. Daniel was definitely a brother to Rebecca (Fluharty) Youst (c1790-1870), of Marion Co. I've never found an unambiguous statement linking either of them to the rest of the Fluhartys, though they must all be of the same family group.
