Names and Page # Index


GEORGE W. FLAGLER, of Tinicum township, Bucks county, Pennsylvania, comes from the following family:

The grandfather emigrated from Germany to this country with his family about 1840, and settled in New York city, where he followed butchering until about 1871 or 1872, when he moved to Bucks county, and purchased a farm in Tinicum township. He there tilled the soil until overtaken by death in 1894. He was a devoted member of the Lutheran church. He married, and his children were Peter, George, and Barbara.

Peter Flagler, son of the emigrant, was born in Germany, coming to this country with his father when young. In early life he was engaged in the butcher business with his father in New York city, but later followed the footsteps of his father, and began farming in Bucks county, Pennsylvania, in which he is still engaged. In religious faith Mr. Flagler is of the Lutheran faith. He married Miss Rosa Moser, by whom eight children were born: Katie, wife of Martin Luly; Barbara, wife of Simon Bickl; Dora, wife of John Franklin; George, the subject of this memoir; Mary, wife of John Rutherford; Maggie, wife of Peter Laubenstein; Rosa, wife of John Jamison; Christian, a farmer of Bucks county.

George W. Flagler, son of Peter, born in New York city, April 23, 1858, was educated in the common schools and removed to Bucks county, Pennsylvania, with his family, when but fourteen years of age. When quite young he began work in a sash and blind factory, but later took up cigar making. For two years he followed boating on the Delaware canal. But, finally, the farm attracted his attention, and he has since followed it in its various branches. In 1889 he bought his present farm of ninety acres, one of the best in the township. Mr. Flagler is a member of the Lutheran church, and a good church worker. He married Miss Ella Eisentrager, and to them six children were born: May, born May 10, 1880; Arthur, born September 21, 1883, a clerk in Clymer's store at Doyleston, Pennsylvania; Rosa, born June 26, 1885; Nora, February 3, 1888; Lloyd, August 14, 1891; Walter, July 19, 1899.
