52. Elizabeth Ann Flowers (William F., Valentine, Ralph) was born 30 Jun 1808 in VA.

She married Ebenezer Williams (Ref. 2; aka Evin, Evan and Evins Williams in the census records). He was born ca 1800 in SC.

In 1840 (Ref. 106) and 1850 (Ref. 107) they lived in Hickman County TN, and in 1860 in Perry County TN (Ref. 108). They evidently had 10 children, three of whom, Bill, David, and Bob, were known to Mary Levisa Flowers (Ref. 2):

190 i William (Bill) H. Williams b ca 1826
191 ii Salathiel Williams b ca 1829
192 iii Martha A. Williams b ca 1835
193. iv Elizabeth Williams b ca 1837
194. v David Williams b ca 1840, a noted Methodist minister
195. vi Robert E. Williams b ca 1842, a farmer, lived near a Rutherford TN
196. vii Telitha F. Williams b ca 1845
197. viii Sofia E. Williams b ca 1848
198. ix John B. Williams b ca 1850
199. x Sarah Williams b ca 1851

53. Mary Madison Flowers (William F., Valentine, Ralph) was born 30 Sept 1809 in TN.

She married William Roland (Ref. 2; aka William Rolin or Rolliers in the census or census indexes). He was born ca 1800 in NC and died between 1850 and 1860.

In 1840 they lived in Hickman County TN (Ref. 109), but moved to Perry County TN, where the family appeared in the 1850 and 1860 censuses (Ref. 110 and 111). Mary Levisa (Ref. 2) says that they lived on Lost Creek near Lobelville in Perry County.

In 1880 Mary was living with her brother Dr. David D. Flowers at the old Flowers place near Coble TN, and she gave Mary Levisa a teapot which had been brought from Ireland (Ref. 2, 112).

Mary and William evidently had 9 ch:

200. i Sarah B. Roland b ca 1828
201. ii Martha J. Roland b ca 1830, m Horner (Ref. 2)
202. iii Emily F. Roland b ca 1832
203. iv Elizabeth (Betsy) Roland b ca 1834, m Duffel
(Ref. 2)
205. v Mary (Polly) M. Roland b ca 1836, m Fain (Ref. 2)
204. vi Andrew A. Roland b ca 1838
206. vii Carny Roland (male) b ca 1840
207. viii Bethel B. Roland (female) b ca 1845
208. ix William W. Roland b ca 1848

54. Martha B. Flowers (William F., Valentine, Ralph) was born 16 Nov 1811.

According to Ref. 2 she married a Loftin. He would apparently be the William Loftin Jr. age 20 30 who appears on page 200 of the census of 1840 of Hickman County TN, along with the Williams, Roland’s, Murphy’s, her father William F. Flowers and brother Valentine F. Flowers (Ref. 113). They have not been found in later records. (He is apparently not the William G. Loftin found in Caldwell County KY in 1850.)

Mary Levisa reports that Martha had three daughters:

209. i Susan Loftin m Journey. she was born before 1840 (Ref. 113)
210. ii Adaline Loftin m Chandler
211. iii Martha Loftin m Watson

55. Naomi L. Flowers (William F., Valentine, Ralph) was born 31 Oct 1813 in TN.

She was married to William B. Murphry or Murphree (Ref. 2). He was born ca 1811 in SC. As the typescripts copy of Ref. 2 gives his name as "Nenson", it was probably "Benson."

Mary Levisa (Ref. 2) says they lived near Bakersville in Humphreys County TN, but in 1840 (Ref. 114), 1850 (Ref. 115), and 1860 (Ref. 116) they were listed in the censuses in Hickman County.

Also Mary Levisa (Ref. 2) reports that a daughter, Sophronia, married her cousin Bill Williams (#190). However, there is no Sophronia in the census records, nor a place for an extra daughter of that name, and Ref. 14, Vol. II page 277, a cemetery record, indicates that Martha Murphry married Bill Williams. It is therefore assumed that Martha was aka Sophronia.

Mary Levisa (Ref. 2) does not mention the daughter Darthula, so perhaps Darthula died young.

Naomi and William Murphry evidently had 8 ch:

212. i Sarah (Sallie) Murphry b ca 1834
213. ii Martha Murphry (aka Sophronia? Ref. 2) b ca 1836
m William H. Williams, # 190, q.v.
214. iii Darthula Murphry b ca 1838 (probably died young as
she was not mentioned by Ref. 2)
215. iv David Murphry b ca 1840
216. v William (Bill) Murphry b ca 1844
217. vi Mary Murphry b ca 1848
218. vii Abram (Abe) Murphry b ca 1852
219. viii Josephine (Josie) C. Murphry b ca 1854

56. Sarah Price Flowers (William F., Valentine, Ralph) was born 23 Mar 1815.

She was married on 24 Nov 1841 to Abram C. Burchard (Ref. 2, 23) who was born ca 1819. In the 1850 census (Ref. 117) and the 1860 census (Ref. 118), they were in Hickman County TN where according to Mary Levisa, Ref. 2, they lived on Duck River at the mouth of Beaver Dam Creek, four miles from the old Flowers homestead.

As William F. Flowers is said to have named his children "for the older Flowers connections" the "Price" appears to be for the family of Mary Price, the mother of Elizabeth Flippin. Sarah and Abram had 4 ch:

220. i William (Billy) J. Burchard b ca 1843
221. ii Abram Valentine Burchard b ca 1845
222. iii James C. Burchard b ca 1848
223. iv Sarah Ann or Anna Burchard b ca 1848, twin of
James C. Burchard

57. Valentine Flippin Flowers (William F., Valentine, Ralph) caled "Tine" or "uncle Tine" was born 16 Nov 1817 near Carthage Smith County TN. He was about age seven when his father William Flippin Flowers moved from Smith County TN to the old Flowers homestead at the northwest end of Briar Pond Bottom near Coble Hickman County TN (Ref. 2).

He was married in Hickman County to Louisa Curl. She was a daughter of Jarrett Curl and his first wife, Sallie Jacobs. Louisa Curl was a sister of Mary Curl, who married Dr. David D. Flowers #61. Louisa was born 27 Apr 1825 at Vernon, Hickman County TN (Ref. 2).

Valentine F. Flowers lived in Hickman County TN in 1840 (Ref. 119), 1850 (Ref. 120), and 1860 (Ref. 121).

About Feb or Mar 1861, or three weeks before the start of the Civil War, Valentine Flippin Flowers and his family moved to Graves County KY so his children could attend school, there being none near the old home in Hickman County at that time (Ref. 122). They lived in Haynes Precinct. In 1870 their address was at Kansas Post Office (Ref. 123), and in 1880 at Pottersville (Ref. 124).

There was much difficulty with Union troops during the Civil War. Serious trouble was averted in one instance only after a Union officer recognized Valentine's Masonic distress signal (Ref. 122).

They moved to Cleburne County AR in 1886 as described by Robert E. Lee Flowers: "(When I was) age 21, with mother, dad, and Sister Anna, we left our old Kentucky home to homestead land in northern Arkansas. Our journey began on 28 Oct 1886. There were two covered wagons, a spring hack for mother and dad, and six head of mules, one a lead. We came by way of Crowley’s Ridge, Powhattan, and Batesville, and on 16 Nov 1886 rolled over the hills into Sugar Loaf Springs, now Heber Springs" (Ref. 1).

Valentine Flippin Flowers died at the home of his son Robert at Quitman AR in 1896, and Louisa died at the home of her daughter Anna at Shirley AR in 1903. Both were buried initially at the Lower Barrens Cemetery in Cleburne County AR (Ref. 233). The tombstone was placed by their son Robert E.L. Flowers. Their graves were among those relocated to the Higdon McLehany Cemetery prior to the flooding of Lower Barrens by the Greers Ferry Reservoir.

The census of 1900 (Ref. 125) indicates that Louisa had a total of 9 children. If so, then one must have died very young, as only 8 are known

224. i James Flowers, born ca 1845 (Ref. 120), died about
1857 in an accidental death. James is buried at the
Flowers cemetery at the old home near Coble, TN.
The grave is marked by a rustic stone with no
engraving (Ref. 65, 122).
225. ii Martha Matilda Flowers b 21 May 1847 in Hickman
County TN

229. vi Jefferson Davis Flowers b 23 Aug 1861 in Graves County KY
230. vii Robert Everett Lee Flowers b 12 Mar 1865 in Graves County KY

231. viii Anna Price Flowers b 23 Sept 1867 in Graves County KY

58. William Carroll Flowers (William F., Valentine, Ralph) was born 6 Aug 1819 in TN and apparently named for General William Carroll, under whom William Flippin Flowers served in the War of 1812.

William C. Flowers was "at home" with his father in the census of 1850 (Ref. 72), but by about 1852 he married Elizabeth Easley of Hickman County (Ref. 2). She was born ca 1824. In 1860 they were living in Hickman County (Ref. 126), but between 1863 and 1870 they moved to Gatesville, Coryell County, TX, where they appeared in the census of 1870 (Ref. 127) and 1880 (Ref. 128).

William died on 10 Mar 1887 at Gatesville, TX. His obituary appeared in the Centerville TN newspaper (Ref. 129), where he was remembered as a former resident of Beaverdam Creek and as a brother of Dr. David D. Flowers. William and Elizabeth had at least 5 children (Ref. 126 128):

232. i Walker S. Flowers b ca 1854 in TN
233. ii James D. Flowers b ca 1856 in TN
234. iii R. Donn Flowers b ca 1858 in TN. (Note that there
was an R. D. Flowers buried in the Flowers family
cemetery near Coble TN born ca May 1858, died 20
Jun 1881, age 23 years and 1 month, Ref. 65)

235. iv David Flowers b ca 1860 in TN
236. v George Flowers b ca 1863 in TN

59. John Littleberry Flowers (William F., Valentine, Ralph) was born 17 May 1821. He married Louisa Beakley, who was born ca 1830. She was a daughter of William Beakley (Ref. 23, Chapter XV, paragraph 20. Mary Levisa, Ref. 2, says she was Louisa Beasley, but Spence, Ref. 23, shows that the Beasley and Beakley families both appeared in Hickman County, and specifically notes that Louisa Beakley married John L. Flowers).

John and Louisa lived in Perry County TN in 1850, 1860 and 1880 (Ref. 130 132) and had 8 children:

237. i Mary C. Flowers b ca 1850

Easley, who was born ca 1841. She was called Nellie by Mary Levisa and was a niece of Elizabeth Easley, who married William Carroll Flowers (Ref. 2).

They lived in Hickman County TN in 1860, 1870, and 1880 (Ref. 134 136) and had 8 children as of 1880:

61. David Douglas Flowers (William F., Valentine, Ralph) was born 16 Feb 1825 in TN (Ref. 2).

In 1850 he was still at home with his father (Ref. 72), but by 1860 (Ref. 137) he had married Mary Curl, a daughter of Jarrett Curl and Sallie Jacobs, and a sister of Louisa Curl who married Valentine Flippin Flowers. Mary was born 29 Jan 1840 at Vernon TN.

Dr. David D. Flowers studied medicine under his cousin Dr. John Douglas #75. After the death of his father, William Flippin Flowers, David purchased the old homestead and raised his family there. He had the stone house built over the cave spring, which is still in use. He was a Mason (Ref. 2).

Mary Levisa reported that they had 13 children, 8 of whom grew to maturity (Ref. 2). As they appeared in the censuses from 1860 to 1880 (Ref. 137, 138, and 112), and some of their infants were buried at the Flowers cemetery, names or birth dates can be assigned for 12.

David died 8 Oct 1887 near Whitfield in Hickman County TN, and Mary died 29 Mar 1906 in Dickson County TN. Both were buried at the Flowers Cemetery at the homestead near Coble (Ref. 65). David's obituary appeared in the Centerville newspaper (Ref. 139)
