Rober Flemming Jr.

It seems that there is a discrepancy between the BOD given by the document in yahoo groups and the one that is shown in several other sites. Yahoo document says that in 1880 he already was 40 years old while sites say that he was born in 1857, which will make him 23 years old in 1880. Any idea why?

Robert Flemming

Since school children seem to choose Robert Flemming as the subject of a research project every year during African-American History Month, I have provided my research on him for anyone to view. It is all that I know, so please don't ask if I know anything more, or if I can furnish pictures of him. It is what it is, and you're welcome to the information. You must go to the following site: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/csshlhunley You must join the site to view the "Files" section, where the information on Robert Flemming is posted as: Robert Flemming Biography.doc Robert Fleming and the Blue Light. This information clears up all the nonsense which has been written about him. The references are listed so that you can confirm the facts for yourself.

Did you know that he was a

Did you know that he was a Union sailor during the Civil War? That his ship was the first to be sunk by a submarine, and that he was the first man on the ship to see the submarine approaching on its deadly mission? That his father was a baker in Baltimore, where Flemming was born? That he may have been imprisoned early in life, while pursuing his fortune in Gold Rush California? His patent was for a modification to any stringed instrument such as the guitar, resulting in what he called the "Euphonica." Did you know that he married late in life, never had any children, and that he and his wife chose to change their race from "Mulatto" or "Black" to "White" when they filled out their census information?

Robert Flemming's life has not been detailed elsewhere, but I have put together some facts about him. Did you know that he was a Union sailor during the Civil War? That his ship was the first to be sunk by a submarine, and that he was the first man on the ship to see the submarine approaching on its deadly mission? That his father was a baker in Baltimore, where Flemming was born? That he may have been imprisoned early in life, while pursuing his fortune in Gold Rush California? His patent was for a modification to any stringed instrument such as the guitar, resulting in what he called the "Euphonica." Did you know that he married late in life, never had any children, and that he and his wife chose to change their race from "Mulatto" or "Black" to "White" when they filled out their census information? If you would like to have more information on this interesting African American man, I'd be happy to send you all the results of my research. You may contact me at my E mail address.
