Notes

Note 1

Aug 2015 - Pretty good evidence that middle name is Milton found on delayed birth certificate of son Louis Clayton, signed by oldest son Richard Milton “Dixie” Flynt. Also Richard Milton on Application for headstone dated Sept 1930 by LC Flynt. Other typical sources, including both marriage cert, use only middle initial "M". Emma Flynt Bowie record book has Richard M Flynt 1842-1898, and Dixie as Richard Milton Flynt

Son Dixie, (RM jr) signed WWI draft registration card in 1918 and WW2 card in1942 as Richard Milton Flynt--but not junior..
