With Florence Fleming McLain and Richard Causey Fleming dead the ancestral outline that could be of help to a descendent who desires connection with Sons or Daughters of the Revolution, Robert Monroe Fleminbg, is the bottom of the linage ladder. Which is as follows:

He received the Order of the Bath, in company with his patron, Charles I, then Prince of Wales. Father was Richard Jennings: In 1681, Jennings, acting as Governor for the proprietories, convened the first legislature, legislative assembly of the Quakers in West New Jersey:-- Samuel Jennings, his intrepid conduct as speaker of the assembly of New Jersey, 1704, 1707.-- Mrs Jennings, Mother of Lady Middleton, wife of Sir John Middleton of Barton Park, in Devonshire, England.

Wm Jennings: A bachelor born in 1700, died at Acton Place, County Suffolk, England, June 19, 1798 in his 98th year, intestate. Leaving a fortune in cash, mortgages, bonds, consols and real estate. Valued at several million dollars. Ignoring the claims of those who were his nearest kin, the courts granted control of the estate to two members of a distant branch of the Jennings family. Who have been in possession of it ever since. Early in the year 1920 an effort was started to secure possession of the property on behalf of what was thought to be his nearest kin residing in this country, America. But the court ruled that the proof of realtionship was not complete. Since that time efforts are being made to ascertain who were the parents of one William Jennings, said to have been born in Yorkshire, England, Nov. 10, 1676 and settled in Nottoway, Co., Va. Where he married one Mary J Pulliam in Hanover Co. in 1724. It is believed that he is the missing link. And his descendents are being traced down as rapidly as such work can be accomplished. The following is a continuation from the Jan. 1926 issue of the descendents of William Jennings. Armedia Jane Jenings Causey said, "My G G Granfather died on a ship coming to Amnerica from England. A baby son was born to wife of G G Grandfather on the ship. G Grandfather and Grandfather always claimed his Grandfather was the nephew of William Jennings. And his Father was a great nephew. And it has been talked about in the family that the Jennings who died on the ship was named William. :-- Jenings Family Record - 503 Richmond Trust Building, Richmond, Virginia U S A - Address mail to P O Box 1612, Cable address(Chas.
