Additional Information

The information written below was taken from the following source:

1. SAMUEL1 FLEMING was born Abt. 1720 in County Antrim, Ulster Provence, Ireland, and died Unknown in Jefferson County, Georgia.

He married (2) UNKNOWN. She died Unknown. Note: Wife is unknown. Apparently she died in Ireland or on the ship enroute to Savanah Georgia in 1768. He arrived in Savanah, Georgia in December 1768 from County Antrim, Ireland. This family settled in Queensborough, Jefferson County, Georgia, 20 Feb 1769.

It is believed that Samuel Fleming, Sr. came on the Ship "Prince George" from Belfast, Ireland to Savannah, Georgia which landed in December 1768, with five sons, James, Samuel, Jr, William, John, and Robert, and a sister. They are believed to have come from County Antrim, Provence of Ulster, Northern Ireland being Scotch-Irish. Their ancestors were of the group of Scotts who migrated to the Ulster Provence of Northern Ireland.

Note: This is not the same Samuel Fleming that was married to Alice Charlton d. 1806 in Maryland, as numerous online family trees erroneously indicate. The Maryland Samuel Fleming and wife Alice Charlton have separate, sourced profiles.

John you are supposed to put the very detailed documentation of your line in the WikiTree profile of your ancestors. Not leave a message that it’s there yet no one can view it. I have a subscription to AncestryDNA as well. I stated I am working on this line. There is documentation through Family lines. It is weak as I have previously stated but just because you want me to detach doesn’t mean I will. There is no delete only detach. Your continued messaging isn’t going to make me move any faster. If you were really that concerned you would be finding sources instead of ....non stop messaging. I probably will detach the parents but I am researching it first. As I previously stated there are family lines listed in my source that state them as parents. That is really weak but all the other information on them has been correct so I’m wondering if it’s not me that is missing a source and I am researching...

I pointed the Fleming’s (in your line) out not as a merge but as an example that you did not site a reference at the time that You posted it. I never proposed a merge for them so how can you Un propose a merge that’s never been proposed.

John Fleming, Jr. your Fleming’s have no sources (not even one) on Fleming-6123 and Fleming-6122. Charles had several links to local family histories.

They are not ideal but they are there. As always I am trying to improve on them. “the pot calling the kettle black.” I guess we should detach both of yours? I would not. I could have found another source in the time that it took to write all of this down.:(. You too.

Fleming-5577 and Fleming-2854 appear to represent the same person because: Same wife. Birthdate I have on Fleming-2854 is wild estimate, and 1720 birth date is plausible.

Samuel is 21 degrees from Elizabeth Winter, 18 degrees from Antoine de La Mothe Cadillac and 19 degrees from Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
