Can someone help ID Phineas Flint from Info below?

+6 votes

Hello All  I'm looking to ID  Phineas Flint. He had two Daughters   Abigail Flint  b. 1812 and Lucy  b  1818. (+ other children?)  Phineas is referred to as having been from Roxbury Vt. 

Abigail Flint  b. 1812 Married Brothers   Oliver and Joel chaffee (I have that info)  and Abigail is referred to as the DaU OF Phineas of Roxbury Vt.  

Lucy b. 1819  (sister of Abigail)  Married another Brother John Chaffee  (have that info too)  

So Im looking for the Flint Family.  


This is what I've found:

Phineas Flint  b 1 july 1770  son of Silas and Abigail Flint 

Phineas b. 1757 (?)  m. Hannah Clark   in Braintree  Vt.   24 Feb 1780 

Phineas Jr.   b. 17 Aug 1782  m.  Cynthia Bruin 

Phineas Jr b. 1848 m.  Clara Van Onick (not the father but ?) 

Which, if any of these (not the last)  is the father of Abigail and Lucy .. 

Vt. Vital Records shows this .. 

Lucy Arnold Flint  b 16 Feb  St. Johnsbury Vt   Father was Alvin 

Lucy M. Flint  b. 21 April 1817  in Randolph Vt.   Dau of Samuel and Relapha (?) 

I've tried searching  Flint and Flynt with no success.  

To make it even more interesting -   Daniel and Eunice Flint  Children of James and Jerusha flint  Married  Anson and Amy Chaffee 

Nelson John Chaffee m. Celia Leona Flint She was the dau of Cyrus and Irene Flint 

Dennison Flint   Son of abel and mary flint m. Sarah Chaffee 

The info for Phineas  comes from the Chaffee Genealogy by Wm. Chaffee but I can't verify it one way or the other. 

So if anyone can find more info I'd greatly appreciate it. 

Thanks so much.  

Flint-993 & Flint-994 (Abigail & Lucy)

I don't know if you found your info  but this is what I have.  Abigail was born 1812 and Lucy 1818 Making Phineas b 1816 (death record mentioned)  their brother.  The Chaffee Genealogy by Wm Chaffee (1909) states that John Chaffee marreid Lucy Dau of Phineas Flint  of Roxbury Vermont and sister to Abigail  who married in successsion his brothers Oliver and Joel.  So based on the death record  Phineas and Sarah Cheney would be the parents.

To make it even more Interesting Phineas Jr. Married Sarah Edwards.

There is a death record for a Phineas Flint b. 1816 at Roxbury, VT died 1893 at Roxbury.  Father Phineas, mother Sarah Cheney.  Because of the location and birth year, you might try to find more on this couple.
