Born 1735, died sometime between 1773 and 1783

The Flacks were Presbyterians and a member of the Nottingham Colony in Pennsylvania. Thomas was a trustee of the church. He was a Captain in the Revolutionary War. We have a copy of his military service against the Cherokee Indians.

Thomas had two sons: Andrew was born about 1765 in Guilford County, North Carolina. He married Mary Dilworth. Their children were: Jenny, Levina, and Elisha.

We do not know the name of Andrew's second wife, but wife # 3 was Mary Waggoner whom he married on Dec. 22, 1818. They had three children; Melinda, Andrew Saunders, and Minerva.

Andrew's son Elisha was born in Guilford County, N.C. on October 27, 1800. He married Anna Boone February 9, 1821 in that county and fathered the following children: John Yancy, Rachel, Pollyann, Jane, Woodson, Levina, Sallie, Bettie, and Andrew (Andy). Elisha died September 23, 1882 in Guilford County.

Several in our family have become members of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) with documents we have on the Flack line.
