Hi Troy,

Thanks for the posting. Yes, I really miss Donna's postings, so informative and willing to share her knowledge of the area there. Never talked to her in person, though I saw her photo that Louise posted a link to, what a beautiful woman. Donna said that my great-grandmother, Mary Catherine McCoy Flanagan of Ambia, IN was mid-wife to her grandmother, when her mom was born and some of the other children. Grateful for that tidbit and some others she related to me. I do have a question: Donna mentioned a couple of her elderly aunts still living (although it has been a few years, and maybe they have passed on now, I was going to try and contact them myself) that might have remembered Mary Flanagan or has Donna referred to her as she said she was known in the area as Grandma Flanagan. I'm still looking for the death date and death place of her husband (my great grandfather) John Flanagan. Their children were oldest: a girl? name unknown, son -John, daughter -Elizabeth Jane Flanagan Smith (married to Patrick Smith and lived north of Ambia, IN) and son -George Thomas Flanagan (my grandfather-married Leta Davis of Ambia also and moved to South Dakota in 1917) Any stories or recollections of these family members by your family members would be very appreciated. Welcome to the World of Genealogy! I've been at it for 11 years now. Really miss my mom, gone since August 2008. We made a good team, she with the names, dates and information remembered from her mother and my sleuthing skills! Good luck and thanks again for posting. Melody -email direct at
