Thanks for your plethora of information. Since I first emailed you I did some checking with my mother-in-law, who is Flanagan descendant, and I asked her specifically about the recorded birthdate for Anthony Flanagan.

We have several copies of documents pertaining to him, where he has given his own birthdate as 2 Sep 1841. Dept of Interior, Bureau of Pensions, certificate number 788606, name: Anthony Flanagin - is one of those documents. Another little note I made off a document, was "1864 Infantry Missouri Volunteers on 8th of Sep 1864, Hannibal Mo, Company "B" 39th regiment. $100 bounty." whewre he again has listed his birthdate as 2 sep 1841. Again, On Volunteer Enlistment document his birth place is listed as Russel, and the date is repeated same as the other documents.

I noticed the two siblings following him, that you had listed on your website, only had birth YEARS. Is it possible one of them were actually born in 1839, instead of our Anthony? He seemed to be rather sure of his birth date. Another noteworthy thing, is that on a document with the following info: "Probate Court of MO Sullivan County MO, 'Application for Letters of Admin' for 2000 dollars. 3 Nov 1926. Form number1054.," the witness was a William Triplett. Since we knew nothing of the Triplett line before, this now makes more sense. Perhaps it was an uncle or a cousin... ---Victoria Fisher

Anthony Flanagin (Flanagin is how he spelled his last name, but his son, Benjamin Franklin Flanagan, whom my mother in law descends from, spelled it Flanagan) born 2 Sep 1841. Died 20 Nov 1921. The probate court document was made in 1926, five years later. Yes, the witness named WIlliam Triplett was not likely his uncle. But one of his cousins may have born the name William. It sure makes more sense now that we know of the Triplett relation.

Here is another tidbit of info, pertaining to Anthony's days of service in the Missouri Militia, and other military service: "He answered all calls made by Colonel William Shelton. The names of his commanding officers in the militia were: Colonel William Shelton, Captain Green Mays, and First Lieutenant Jefferson Davis. Was honorably discharged onthe 19th day of July 1865. Served in the civil war. Served also in the enrollment militia about a year and a half. ---Victoria Fisher <victoria@@innboks.com>
