>Dear Jan, I now have read three of your post this evening, and three of my
have popped in your messages. FLORY< GIBBLE (I have the GIBBLE book) and
MUSSER. Maybe we should compare notes.
My Flory's were supposedly from Lancaster Co. PA to York Co. PA. to
Columbiana Co. Ohio (gave from there in 1805 when Michael Flory purchased
land in Stark County OHio. Osnaaburg Twp. Louisville. Musser's were in Stark Co.
they came into Dekalb Co. In then Kosciusko Co., Marshall County, Elkhart Co
Indiana. The Gibble's are my Grandmother's Flory's family they were in HAmilton
Co. Indiana, Noblesville, Ciscero, INdiana. Do you have any Graybill's?
