Sedition, Secession & Civil War — It’s Issue #7 of Flanders Family News!

As I’ve mentioned before, I publish the newsletter for the Flanders branch of my family. The newest issue is available now at, and you may find it interesting even if you and I aren’t related.

In this issue, we delve into the story of Francis D. Flanders and his brother Joseph R. Flanders. They published a newspaper in Franklin County, New York. They ran for and won elective offices.

And they were jailed by Abraham Lincoln.

That fascinating story, plus:

  • Bunny McLeod Graduates From College … at 65!
  • Flanders: The Ontario County Connection
  • The Mystery In Mt. Hope Cemetery
  • Flanders In Politics
  • Flanders In The News
  • …and more!
