Since noting the families of Evans, Godbold, Haselden and Richardsons herein, the writer has
obtained information that enables him to connect branches of the above named families with the
Fladgers - a name now extinct in the county, except one female, now forty years of age, Sallie
Maria Fladger, daughter of the late Captain Charles J. Fladger, by he second marriage with the
Widow William S. Bethea. That female will hardly ever marry; and if she does, will, perhaps
change her name from Fladger to some other name -so that, if in the remotest possibility that the
name will continue much longer in the county, once prominent. About 1735, one of the first settlements
was made by a colony, direct from England, in Britton's Neck, and one of these colonists was a
Fladger (Gregg's History, page 69), and from him the name and its connections have come down to
the present time. The writer is indebted to Mrs. Major S. A. Durham, a descendant of this old
colonist Fladger, for the missing link. Hugh Fladger was his name (a name in the family ever since);
to whom he married in unknown - he may have married in England and brought his wife with him; he
had a son, named Henry Fladger who married a Miss Keene...
