Charles, I found the following info - don't know if it will help you, but it might -

I was working on the internet today on the LDS/Family Search website for the US 1880 Census:

Listed as follows:
Caroline S. Vick
widow - b. 1834 NC age 46 parents b. NC

living as MOTHER with son
Andrew J. Vick (assume Andrew Jackson - )
b. 1857 TN age 23 - farmer - single
father b. TN, mother b. NC
Census taken:
Alvarado, Johnson Cty, TX

also listed:
Tobias S. Vick - brother b. 1860 TN
Nancy B. Vick - sister - b. TN
Hattie L Vick - sister - b. TN
Robert M. Vick - brother - b. TN
and two workers on the farm: james King and james Wiley

now on
I found the following
William Stanley Vick -
fought in the Mexican - American War -
enlisted either Edgecomb or Martin County, NC

son J.G. Vick b. 1830 d. 1883 buried Belin United Methodist Church Cemetery - Murrells Inlet, Georgetown County, SC

William Stanley Vick could also be William Stanland Vick
But I believe the Stanley is correct because I searched on and found the following:

LIST OF 1847 - Mecklenberg County, NC
NC Regiment - Company E
Stanley Vick
" all from Edgecomb County, save 18 from Martin County"
This was a long list of Troops.

From worldconnect:
father of William S. Vick :
some list Jesse Vick with mother Caroline - no surname.
and say that William S. Vick married Susan Elizabeth James

William Stanley Vick married Caroline Woodside
father of Wm. S. Vick: William Gaston Vick
b. 1772 - VA d. 1790 NC
mother: Lucretia Tyler b. Duplin County, NC

There is another William G. Vick
b. 1832 and died 1885 Horry County, SC

Now my thinking is:
Caroline Woodside married William Stanley Vick - they moved to TN where the kids were born. He served in the American-Mexican War and was killed or died of malaria or dysentery -which was a larger problem than being shot!
That is why she was a widow in TN.

OR: her husband fought in the Civil War and was killed
and so by 1880 she was living with her unmarried son
Andrew J. Vick - in TX. Many went to TX after the War of Rebellion.

Also on the list of 1847 for Troops:
William B. Flanner - 2nd LT - NC Regiment - Co. H.
"company from New Hanover and Wake Counties"
see the site lsited above for American-Mexican War.

So I believe that Stanley Vick who married Caroline Woodside
was Willliam Stanely Vick...but have no proof....
so don't rely on this as proof - just suppostions.

I didn't find variations of the Flanner name except possibly: Flawner and Flander - but I don't think NC Flanners used those.
