I am also researching the FLAKE family in Jefferson Co., NY. My FLAKE gggrandfather was Levi Louis FLAKE, listed in the 1850 NY census, Levi FLAKE, age32, living with his wife, Ationette (age 23) and daughter, Emma E. FLAKE (age 1) in Ellisburgh Twp, Jefferson Co., NY. My g-g-grandfather, Levi FLAKE, was born in 1818 in NY, and I believe that this could be him, considering that his marriage to my g-g-grandmother was not until he was 51 years old (unusual age for a first marriage), and had already fought in the Civil War. I have no idea of who his parents were, but would love to hear from you if you have any clues in this.
