Re: William FLORA, REV WAR hero

Gladys Donson who is a Flora Family Historian found information on William Flora in Paul Heinegg's book "Free African Americans of North Carolina, Virginia, and South Carolina from the Colonial Period to about 1820" Volume I. Which said William's mother, Mary Flora, was born around 1730. Father unknown. William was born free around 1755 and bound apprentice to Joshua Gammon of Norfolk County in April 1763. Williams grandmother was also named Mary, born around 1700, who was probably white. She was a servant to Lewis Delony on January 1718/19, when the York County Court ordered that she serve himn an additional year for having a "bastard child" She was probably the mother of at least two children, "the aforementioned Mary, mother of Willian and a Peter Flora".
This was the information that I recieved regarding William Flora.
Bill Flory
