FAMILY RECORDS of the Descendants of GERSHOM FLAGG [Born 1730] of Lancaster Massahusettes (sic) with Other Genealogical Records of THE FLAGG FAMILY Descended from THOMAS FLEGG OF WATERTOWN MASS and Including THE FLEGG LINEAGE IN ENGLAND Compiled and Published by Norman Gersom Flagg and Lucius C S Flagg 1907
Chapter III The Flagg Lineage from Thomas Flegg of Watertown Mass to Gershom Flagg (Born 1730) of Lancaster Mass 1637-1758
pg 26: As there has been some discussion among the Flagg descendants as to which of the Flaggs owned this 'slate-rocks' Mr Clark has examined all records very carefully. While Gershom Flagg of Lancaster, with whom this record especially deals never was owner of the property, his father certainly was, of which the foregoing deeds are sufficient evidence. At the death of Eleazer Flagg in 1749, to avoid a forced sale of the Lancaster property, the Court settled this 'slate rocks' together with other real estate upon Eleazer's daughter Mary, wife of Garven (Gawen) Brown. Upon Mary's death soon after, Eleazer's brother Gershom Flagg (b1705) purchased the Lancaster real estate from G Brown, and he in turn bequeathed it to his son Gershom (b 1743) who moved from Lancaster to Clinton ME in 1789 selling the quarry to Joseph Wales.
To Eleazer Flagg and Mary (Buck) Flagg were born six children:
I. Eleazer b 6 Nov 1725, m Arabethiah, d in London Abt 1751-2 probably without issue.
II. Mary b 18 Mar 1728, m Garven (Gawen) Brown prior to Jul 1760.
III. Gershom of Lancaster b 10 Jun 1730 (see next record).
IV. William b 10 Jul 1732, m 22 Apr 1756 Sally Mecom, niece of Benjamin Franklin; his eldest child was Josiah Flagg b 1760, Town Clerk of Lancaster MA for 34 years.
