The William Fleming Family


Throughout this book I have appended information where I have it, and merged in some other sources. These are in blue when I am appending info from my own files, in red when I append from another source, and these red entries are footnoted on each page to reference the source. Some names of people who marry into the Fleming lines will cross link to another file that has more info on that person’s particular line.

The William Fleming Family

(A Genealogy)

WITH A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF SOME OTHER FLEMINGS OF DELAWARE

PREFACE

This work is not to be considered a history of this vast family. It would be interesting, of course, to know more about the different persons mentioned in the following pages. But to give even brief biographies of all those entitled to them would require an immense amount of space. There are many people in this family worthy of much more notice than is being given them here.

Nothing can be said about the origin of the name or about the Fleming family in general. Much may be found in regard to these matters in almost any public library. The primary purpose of this undertaking is to give an account of the family of William Fleming, supplemented by a brief mention of some other Flemings of Delaware. William Flem­ing had 65 grandchildren and at least 317 great-grandchildren. To give the names of the descendants of all these is the task that was undertaken by this writer. Of course it has not been possible to obtain them all. But there are enough here to show that this is, indeed, a tremendous family.

The Flemings held a family reunion at Fairmont in the month of August, 1891. Two years later they assembled at Honey Creek, Indiana. But probably the largest gathering of Flemings ever to get together was at Muncie, Indiana, on the 22nd of August, 1894. For these meetings valuable family records were collected and preserved, which have been of much help in the preparation of this genealogy. Many of the older members of the family still have the chart that was prepared under the supervision of Mrs. Thomas W. Fleming for the first reunion at Fairmont. Mrs. Cynthia J. Fleming had almost a volume of names and dates per­taining to the various branches of the family, all of which were turned over to the writer by her son, Claude Fleming.

It is not possible to bring a work of this kind in all respects up to date. The genealogy is brought down to about 1930. Many mistakes in names and dates will no doubt be found. The writer, being acquainted with only a small portion of the members of the family, has had to rely on others for the records. Many persons have rendered valuable assistance in the collection of this material, for which I am truly grateful.

  1. How can I obtain a copy of this book, The William Fleming Family – A Genealogy. I am a descendant of William Fred Fleming of Marion County.

    • I bought mine online through Abe for $125 but you can also order it print on demand through Genealogical Publishing Company for something around $90. The Print on demand copies are photocopies and the photos grainy. Better if you can find a used copy but prying loose a copy is the hard part.
