I am helping a friend who's searching her son's father's lineage. He too has a Vincent Flanigan in 1865
who was born in Wisconsin. SO I'm wondering if perhaps the two families could have been at all related???
I have found one record that suggests his middle initial was B, yet other records suggest it was R. Since either could be a mistranscribing of handwritten cursive, its anyone's guess at this point which is right.
Our Vincent was married to a ELLA A, (last name unknown). They had the following children during their marriage: Pearl, Lenard, Mytle, Claude, H. Guy, Cecil, Nena & Vernon.
By 1900 the family had moved to South Dakota.
Any help would be appreciated.
