Mike, we are 5th cousins. We share 4th g grandparents - Jacob & Elizabeth (Cain) Flowers Jr.
I descend from Jacob & Elizabeth's youngest son - General Greene "Green" Flowers Sr. (ca. 1785-1861/3) & Mary (Cypert/Sypert) Flowers. Green & Mary married in Lebanon, Wislon Co., TN, & settled in Robertson Co., TN (right below Logan Co., KY, where Jacob III settled) for a few years, and then before the 1830 census, went to Mt. Carmel, Humphreys Co. (now Holladay, Benton Co.), TN.
My line of descent from Green & Mary Flowers:
James C. (1818-1879) & Sarah L. (Burkett) Flowers. James Bethel (1860-1928) & Sarah Elizabeth (Reed) Flowers. William Blanty (1887-1952) & Dottie Lavergne (Cole) Flowers. My father - Calvin Coolidge "Mike" Flowers (1927-1986).
