In Reply to: Goldborough Barnes Flowers by Brandon Flowers of 3781

I tried to solve this mystery, but without an estate record I could not prove who Goldsborough belonged to.I think he was the great grandson of Ignatius Flowers and Nancy Barnes thru their grandson Richard..some of this is a quess on my part and could be wrong, but maybe this will give you some leads

Thought to be grandson of Ignatius:
Richard B Flowers married Mary Rundell May 3 1860, I think she died?/ Richard B Flowers married Ruth Gentry March 31,1869 note:never found Goldsborough in a census with Richard.

1900 census Claiborne Miss
G B Flowers white male Jany 1866 34yrs married 8 yrs born in Miss
Sue N wife Apr. 1869 31yrs marr 8 yrs 2 children 2 living
Mary J dau Oct 1896
John R son Sept 18
Judith Rundell Aunt Oct 1845
J L Torrey ?? Uncle Apr 1814 86 yrs

for some reason Goldsborough is not in household
Susie Flowers head 40 married 16 yrs 3 children 2 living
Mary J dau 15
Susie N dau 6
Mary R Nelson mother 66

Goldsborough B Flowers 54
Sue N 50
Nell dau 16

1870 census Claiborne note Is't hard to tell how this last name is spelled note should be aunt & uncle from 1900 census
