Thank you for the interest in my Fleming family.
My James was married but I don't know the first name of his wife...I do know she was a 'Daly' not Scanlon. Also my James could not have died in 1942 since one of his sons, my greatgrandfather, john died in 1917 age of 72. Also the George you referred to does not have the same initial as mine. I'm sorry I don't believe these families are related. I sincerely appreciate your time and trouble. > From: > Date: Sun, 16 Mar 2008 12:14:16 -0400> To: ; ; > Subject: [IRISH-IN-CHICAGO] James/George FLEMING> > > I apologize for the cross-posting but someone on one of these listings was > searching for information about a FLEMING family -- names included James and > George (and perhaps William) and having searched my old emails have been > unable to locate which list -- but the family's history involved both Limerick and > Chicago as I recall.
