Hi Karen, I am researching the Flanakin (Flanagan, etc) family tracing them back in time to St Helena, Amite/Wilkinson Cos from Pulaski Co, Arkansas. I believe the daughter of Hugh Flanakin Sr, Elizabeth married the son of Thomas Holden Sr from Laurens Co. I also have evidence that Hugh Flanakin's son William married a daughter of Thomas. Interestingly, it appears that another of Hugh's sons, Hugh Jr, is on the 1830 census in Natchitoches. This is all new research and I am still putting the pieces together. Would love to share info.
