Dear Ms. Fugate:
I was searching the internet tonight looking for some geneology information on several of my family lines and came across your message requesting information on your great grandmother.
My mother, Linda O'Flynn, is the grand-daughter of John Patrick O'Flynn who lived in the Slidell area around the 1960's. He was from a family of 3 boys and 8 girls raised in Jasper County MS and his nickname was Johnny. He and his wife, Vila Finch O'Flynn also had 11 children - 10 boys & 1 girl. All of their children are still living w/ the exception of my grandfather who passed away about a year ago. All deceased O'Flynns, to our knowledge, are buried in the Laurel & Hattiesburg area. The imigrants and their children we think are all buried in the Catholic cemetary at Paulding.
Several of the descendants have been researching the geneology of the O'Flynns and thier families. There is an O'Flynn/Finch family reunion in Laurel the 4th Sunday of every June and most researchers bring their information to exchange back and forth. You and your family are more than welcome to attend the reunion if you like - the more the merrier! At least part of the information that you are looking for should be at the reunion (mom takes her notebook everywhere we go!!).
If you would like to reach us, you can contact Mom at her work number (918)579-7877. If you are unable to attend the reunion, we might still be able to get the info you are looking for to you but we need to know exactly which one of the 8 girls you are searching for.
Great Grand daughter of John Patrick & Vila Finch O'Flynn
