Flinn and Cath. Keeselbery on Nov. 14, and Pieter, son of James Flynn and Janetie
Vrooman, on June 30, 1780.
I descend from James and Jannetie. Does anyone have any information on either person? We have basically no info for either. John Flinn might
be a brother. We don't know who the father was...Maybe Samuel or James?

My Line:

Hendrick Meese Vrooman
Adam Vrooman
Peter Vrooman
Abraham Vrooman
James Flinn/Jannetie Vrooman (Flinn: Possibly born in Ireland ~1740-1745)
Abraham L Flinn (born in Albany area, NY>Cayuga NY)
James Smith Flinn/Luvia Sherman (born in Johnstown, Mtgy, NY>Canadea>IA>NE)
(Luvia daughter of RI's Levi Sherman and Aurelia Pennock) (one son, Abraham lived til death in this county.
Olive Flinn/John George Smith (born in Cayuga NY>Nebraska)
Edith Myrtle Smith/James Arthur Hawkins (Nebraska>Oregon)
MaryLouise, Gerald, Chester and Edward Hawkins (Nebraska>Oregon)
3 more living generations...including me, Michael and Diane!
