My ancestors go back into the 1800s from Ireland, France, the Netherlands and Latvia. They settled in America in Missouri, Kansas and Illinois with birth places listed in Virginia, Tennessee and Kentucky. William Edward Flanary, of Irish decent, is listed in the 1855 Missouri census and land records (an official document signed by Ulysses S. Grant, president of the United States). He married Ann Hayes of Liberty, Missouri. They had a son, Calvin Henry Flanary, who married Corinthia Caroline Conover, whose parents were Peter Conover of Dutch decent and Molinda Pierce of French decent. Calvin and Corinthia traveled in a covered wagon with children born on the way to Oklahoma Indian territory under harsh conditions for which Kansas' weather and way of life had been known. They stayed in Indian Territory until they returned to Kansas. Their children grew up in Kansas and most returned to Oklahoma Indian territory. Calvin and Corinthia went to live in Nowata, Oklahoma. Corinthia was the first licensed woman doctor in the state of Kansas/ or Oklahoma? My mother's grandmother was a licensed doctor and her daughter was a nurse and she helped take care of people who had illnesses in the family. She brought them into her home to take care of them.
