In researching my G-Grandfather
D.A. Flanary I have found the Lamb name. I am not sure why.
Have you run into any Flanarys in your research?

The Flanary family certainly played a role in the development of the county. I have not personally researched the family, but have bumped into them now and then. I am not a Lamb descendant.
