Subject: RE: Geneology (Samuel Ray Family)
What you find in the one name research letters is pretty much what I have on the Samuel Ray family. I believe that the Henry Flemming family next to the Rays in the 1860 Census has a very good change of being Cynthia's father and siblings. I checked the 1850 census but neither family appears there. Sorry, I couldn't do more.
My name is Jan Acker and I am a descendant of Cynthia Flemming’s. I came across the above message that you had replied to, and I wanted to make a correction on your findings. I believe that Cynthia is on the 1850 census under the name of Flemon. Check it out and see what you think.

Fanny is Sinthia’s (Cynthia) Mother because I
have a copy of a census where a Fanny is living with Cynthia after Samuel died. I also have a Fanny Bell who
married David Fleming 7-9-1826, in
You may already be aware of these findings, but I wanted to let you know in case you were not.
