I'm looking for information on Daisey Vires, she was the aunt to Lester Flatt. If we could get his mother and father names, maybe we could get a link on parents name. Any help would be appreciated.

Lindy,

The only thing I know is that my grandmother and Lester Flatt mother were sisters. I would like to find out more on their parents. I know their fathers name is John Vires and either their mothers first name is Cindy or her last name is Cindy according to funeral home records from Murphy's Funeral Home in Lepanto, Arkansas. Where are you from? Any information that you have will be helpful thank you

Lester Flatt's Gr.Gr. Grandparents were either William Flatt b. ca 1774 PA, m. Mary Allender, or John Flatt b. ca 1778 PA, m. Margaret "Peggy" Parker in Roane Co., TN 17 Dec. 1803. I know this as my father said that his and Lester's gr.gr. grandfathers were brothers, and this William and John were brother's to my father's gr.gr. grandfather, Benjamin Flatt, b. 1776 PA, d. 185-?, Jackson Co., TN. There parents were John Flatt B. 1731 Piscataway Twp., Middlesex Co. NJ, believed died in SW part of PA 1788 or 1789 and his second wife, Ruth ---?., m. ca. 1772 in Maryland or PA. I'm still searching my father's genealogy book for exact info on which of Benjamin's brothers was Lester's gr. gr. grandfather.

Lea,

Do you have the names of Lester's mothers and her mothers name. His grandmother on his moms side is my grandmothers sister. I'm trying to find out info on them. If you have anything on them I would appreciate it.

I have found that Lester's parents were Ike (Isaac) Flatt and mother is Nan (Nancy?), maiden name unknown. I researched in my fathers book and found that indeed - John Flatt b. ca. 1778 PA d. ? m. Margaret "Peggy" Parker 17 Dec. 1803 Roane Co., TN are Lester's gr. grandparents.

Thank you for the info. I don't know if I told you that Lester Flatt mother and Eddie Arnold's mother and my great grandmother were all sisters. If you find any info on his mother please let me know.

Thank you

Mechelle,

Right now the info I listed is all that I know. My father met Lester and they discussed the fact that their gr. gr. grandfathers were brothers, Benjamin and John, and my father listed just that Lesters parents were Ike and Nan. I will contact my father to see if he knows anything beyond that, but that information is all that he placed in his genealogy book, as Lester is not a direct line decendant in our family, but is a cousin to my father. I'll keep on this just to see if my father knows more and will keep you posted.
