This website attempts to gather in one place all of the information on three branches of a FLESHER family, namely the Pendleton Co WV, the Weston WV and the Doe Hill lines of the descendants of the Ober-Seemen Germany FLESHER or FLEISCHER family. Also all of their descendants.

Here is an August 2008 picture of myself. Send me one of yourself.
I cannot help but go into my own ancestry a little.
self portrait The greater portion of my blood is German in the surnames FLESHER, SEYBERT, HARPEL and DENGLER, but I have English blood in the surnames DENTON, FAIRFIELD, GRAVES, HAIGHT, HIBBARD, POPEJOY, THORNE and WINTHROP, and Dutch blood from my DORLAND ancestors, and Irish blood from my ancestor Francis Dawson SWORDS, and Welsh blood from my ancestor David EDWARDS, and Channel Islands blood from my HAVILAND ancestors, and Fresian Island blood from my WANZER ancestors.

The title of this website is "Flesher Family Redwood" which comes from the name of the quarterly newsletter (formerly hard-copy) started in 1995 by me, Raymond Clyde FLESHER. Amazingly it is in its 29th year and is available in *.pdf format. It can be had by contacting the editor. The reason for the title of the newsletter is another story for another time.

I am a cousin of the late founder of Playboy Magazine Hugh HEFNER.

I am a descendant of the sister and the father of the founder of Boston, MA; the late John WINTHROP.
