The genealogy below is that of Abraham Flury
of York, Pennsylvania, who, with his father, Jacob, formed one of the three main Flory German immigrant lines to America in the first half of the eighteenth century. For quite some time, a myth was perpetuated that Abraham's father was Pierre Fleury and not Jacob. Shirley Gamble, in her introduction to this line, dispels this myth. For access to her four part introduction to Abraham and his European backgrounds, along with other fascinating information, click on the following links in order: (1) York County PA (Abraham); (2) Philadelphia/Berks County (Jacob): (3) Rhineland Palatinate, Germany; and (4) Hagendorf, Canton Solothurn Switzerland.
