John Wesley Fly had been engaged for some years to a lady whose family were Southerners, and under the circumstances, this might have proved a barrier; but she remained true
to him and to the Union, and on June 11, 1864, he was joined in wedlock to Miss Charioty Clark, a native of Arkansas who was brought up in Missouri, and a daughter of Thomas and Nancy (Comes) Clark, natives of Tennessee; she was the eighth child in a family of twelve children, ten of whom are living. Mr. and Mrs. Fly engaged in farming in Missouri, and bought a ranch in Barry County, which promised all they could desire. In 1883, however, they sold out and moved to Routt County, Colo., where they engaged in the cattle business. They began at the bottom, and studied the industry thoroughly, and in time made his brand, 4/5, a trade-mark of enviable value.
They took up land, and for twenty years continued in the cattle business.
