Mr. Flanagan is a democrat, an admirer of Cleveland, and has served the community as Justice of the Peace, although he has never sought office. Himself and wife have been members of the Missionary Baptist Church for many years.

From: Crawford County, Biographical Appendix, by Goodspeed's.

From Goodspeed's history of Crawford Co., Arkansas - online at ftp://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/ar/crawford/goodspeed/def.txt - note, I believe that the info about his grandparents being from Ireland is erroneous as I can find no documentary evidence of any Flanagans in the Russell County area who had immigrated form Ireland. None of the census data, court records, etc. indicate that the family was from Ireland. If my belief that his grandparents were Bryant and Milly Flanagan, which I believe the preponderance of evidence indicates, Bryant and Milly were married in Wayne Co., KY in 1813. Goodspeed writes:
