I am searching for the parents of John Flowers, b 13 Dec 1812 in Franklin Co. VA. The IGI index names the parents as Samuel Flowers and Elizabeth Delman, but I find that Elizabeth Delman was married to a Samuel Flora, not Flowers. John married Lucinda Allen in Breckinridge County, KY and died in Hardin Co. KY. Would like to hear from anyone searching the Flowers family from Franklin Co, VA.
