  • Notes 
    • In 1855 John Flay had lived in NYC about 24 years. This would have made h is arrival there in about 1831 at age 46, which harmonizes with Mary's arr ival about 2 years later. But I have no record of him from directories be fore 1844 [1855 NY State Census]

      The location for the 1855 NY state census was Ward 22, District 2, Dwelli ng #495, Family #1144. This was probably 263 West 47th St. The home w as of frame construction and valued at $800. [1855 NY State Census] [2]
