Thanks!It's great to have the additional information on the dates for Jonathan's family.I don't "need" to know more about Almeda, but I would be interested in whatever you can post about her.My contact for the Mercer Co., PA, family was Don Berkebile, who is now deceased.My own line is from theJohns in Plymouth Colony+ and then through female lines.
I have found more about Cyrus S. FLOWERS & Mary Elizabeth BARNETT.Cyrus S. FLOWER[S] (23 Aug. 1848, Lowellville, Mahoning Co., OH - 16 Jan. 1929, bu. Oakwood, Sharon, Mercer Co., PA) was son of John FLOWER_ (28 Nov. 1815, PA - 12 Feb. 1902, Columbiana Co., OH) & Margaret DUNHAM, dau/o Azariah.
Cyrus FLOWERS was in the Robert DUNHAM household in 1850 & 1860, and in 1870 with the RUNSER family.
Cyrus FLOWERS m1. 1871 [after 1870 census], Mary Elizabeth BARNETT (9 Apr. 1845, Columbiana Co., OH - 29 Mar. 1899, bu. Oakwood).They had
Carrie Belle (13 Aug. 1871, Sharon, Mercer, PA - 5 Nov. 1922, Bloomfield, Trumbull, OH) m1. _ CAMPBELL; m2. James H. PATTON[Trumbull Co., OH, 1920.]
Anna (ca. 1874, OH - 1963) m. Geo. WARDLE /WARDELL.
Maud, b. 6 Mar. 1876, Sharon, PA;m. 31 Dec. 1803, Mahoning Co., OH, Grant LAYCOCK, b. ca. 1872.
Robert D., b. June 1880; m. 13 June 1905, Mahoning Co., OH, Margaret CONROY.
Hattie, b. Mar. 1882, PA; m. 1900, Montrose M. WILSON, b. ca. 1877.
Fred E. b. 13 June 188[7?]m. 3 Dec. 1906, Mercer Co., PA, Alf[a]retta MODISHER, b. Hickory T., Mercer, PA.She m. with consent of Michael MODISHER.
Cyrus &sons were in the Montrose WILSON household, Sharpsville, PA, 1900.Cyrus m2. 12 Nov. 1901, PA, Sabina [MORFORD] GALLAWAY (9 Jan. 1845, PA - 1 Mar. 1917, bu. Oakwood).In 1900, Sabina GALLAWAY, b. Jan. 1845, PA, wid., was wi. dau. Bessie, b. Apr. 1890.In 1910:C. S. FLOWERS, 61; Sabina FLOWERS, 64; & Bessie GALLAWAY, 21.
I think I know how the rumor of a different first wife of Cyrus started.Hickory, PA, 1880, FLOWERS; Sires, 32; Lizie, 34; Caria, 8; Anna, 6; & Mud, 4.Sires was Cyrus.Lizie is hard to decipher, transcribed Lujie, but I think Mary Elizabeth was listed as Lizie.Caria was Carrie Belle, and Mud was Maud.
I'm tired.I hope I haven't made too many errors!
