Re: Flora/Largent tie

Hi! Thanks for your quick response to my posting.

I'm trying to figure out the Flora lineage, Here's what I have:

my grandfather was ELZIE FLORA, son of James Elzie FLORA

James Elzie's father was Edward W. FLORA- I have his death certificate which lists his DOB as 4 July, 1850, DOD as 21APRIL 1938. The certificate lists his father as SANTFORD (SANFORD) FLORA and his mother as BETTY GIBBONS (GITHENS). It also indicates that Sanfords POB was KY, although that could be incorrect.

I have a marriage certificate of Sanford FLORA and ELIZABETH ANN GITHENS dated 30 August 1855 form Nicholas County, KY

The 1860 Census from VA lists head of household as M.(Morris?)Flora, age 48, wife EA Flora (Eliza Largent?), age 47, S(Sanford), age 10. This can't be my Sanford, can it, since his son was born in 1850!

1870 Census, Morgan County, WVA, head of household Morris Flora, age 50, wife Eliza, age 45, children George, Morris (age 10), James and Thomas L.

1900 Census Morgan County, WVA shows Morris and Eliza with son Brice (I think this may be Morris Jr.)

I am so confused!! If you can help me sort this out or send me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it!

If you're a Largent and I'm a Flora, I guess we are cousins!

Thanks again! Karen
