Both Bunderman’s and Marcinkowski’s Works On the Site

 

As a continuing acknowledgment to the 70th anniversary of the publishing of Walter Q. Bunderman’s compilation and research …

I have uploaded the full texts of both Bunderman’s 1948 seminal F/F/F/ work and Marcinkowski’s 1973 Supplement to the same on separate pages on the site.  Look for both in the major sections at the top of the Home Page.

Hope that having online access to both can fill in some gaps for people who link into these lines.

Restoration of the F/F/F Newsletter Archives dating from 1988 to 2000

Restoration of the F/F/F Newsletter Archives dating from 1988 to 2000

Note to everyone.  After a, hmmm, slight delay of a couple of years, the Bill and Leslie Flory “Flora/Flory/Fleury Family Newsletter” has now been restored in its entirety.  A couple of years ago a change between the way pages were accessed in Rootsweb led to the first half of the archives being inaccessible to anyone who didn’t possess actual hard copies.

That gap has now been rectified and the whole of the archives dating from 1988 to 2012 and now once more accessible at

https://wordpress.com/pages/flohri1754.wordpress.com

I know that at least one interested party has mentioned that they had thought some of their family details were contained in the (at that time) inaccessible editions.  All the best.  Steve Flora.

Query From Switzerland ….. The following will be of interest to anyone with British (specifically London) U.K. Flury connections ….

An email recently received from Switzerland says as follows:

I am a violinmaker and researcher in Basel, Switzerland and I am researching the history of the Guarneri del Gesù

(1698-1744) violins since over 35years.

Can you identify the person mentioned as “Monsieur E. Flury, Woodside Gardens, Tottenham” in the following documents ?

I would highly appreciate any information about this person who must have own the violin from 1949-1951.

With best regards,

Michael A. Baumgartner

This obituary is also psted on the “Obituaries” page of the site as well ….

Flory Jr., John S. Passed away on August 17, 2014, at Bridgewater Retirement Community. He was born September 5, 1910, in Bridgewater, VA, the son of Dr. John S. Flory and Vinnie Mikesell Flory. He graduated from Bridgewater High School in 1928 and Bridgewater College (VA) in 1932. He later attended Northwestern University School of Commerce in Chicago and was a member of Phi Sigma Phi Fraternity. John was united in marriage July 29, 1943 to the former Helen Humphreys, the mother of his only child, Lynn Riner of Harrisonburg, VA. Helen preceded him in death in 1958. He was united in marriage on June 9, 1963 to the former Helen Crumpacker Flora, who died in 2005. Mr. Flory was an accountant, employed in Chicago by Franklin MacVeigh & Co. for several years and by Illinois Zinc Company (later known as Hydrometals, Inc.) from 1939 to 1958, serving as Controller-Secretary the last few years. In 1958, he moved to his home town Bridgewater, VA, where he engaged in a plow manufacturing business for the next five years. During this period, he was a member of Bridgewater Church of the Brethren, served two terms as a member of Bridgewater Town Council and in 1960 served as President of Bridgewater’s 125th Anniversary Association. He was also a member and past President of Bridgewater Rotary Club. In 1963, he returned to Illinois and was employed as a Controller with Don L. Dise, Inc., developer of Boulder Hill community. In 1985, he co-founded Primus Realty Corp. and served as President and Broker until 1991. He stepped down when Primus Realty joined Coldwell Banker and continued to serve as Director until his retirement in 1996. He was a member of Bridgewater Church of the Brethren, and the Rotary Club of Bridgewater. He is survived by daughter, Lynn Riner of Harrisonburg, VA; stepson, Rev.

The family especially wants to thank the Bridgewater Home third floor residential staff for their loving care of John. He was a kind, thoughtful and generous man who would do anything for his family. He was often described as a true southern gentleman. In business and in life, he lived by a high set of morals and values that were evident in all he did. He was a true patriarch and pillar for his family who often leaned on him for guidance. The celebration of life will be at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 21 at Lantz Chapel, Bridgewater Retirement Community. The family will receive friends after the service. Burial will be private.
