FLEMING  Phyllis Miller Fleming Fri Apr 25 20:24:23 1997
I am looking for Caughey S. FLEMING, born 1854, Decatur Co. Oral family history says Caughey was an orphan from Iowa or Kansas. (Both states have a Decatur Co.) Caughey "appears" in Shelbyville, IN, sometime between the 1870 and 1880 census. He married here in Shelbyville and raised a family here. Sometime between 1850 and 1860, a wagon train left the Shelbyville, IN, area, headed for Page Co, IA. This wagon train included some FLEMING's. I have (cyber) "talked" to a gentleman in IA who said some FLEMING's passed through Decatur Co, on to Page Co, with some going to KS. Would ANYONE with any FLEMING connections or knowledge please contact me?

When I was eight years old in 1979, my family and I went to a "Claar" family reunion in Oberlin, Kansas. As I recall, possibly up to 100 relatives attended this event.
