Flower Family Genealogy Forum
I am also searching for my ggg grandfather who was a Flower from Pa. My gg grandfather was Abraham Flower born in 1828 in Stroudsburg, Pa. My father's records state that Abraham had a brother named Alfred, and a brother named Dephue, but I have no substantiation and have not been able to identify my ggg grandfather. The Connecticut connection is also interesting. In the late 1700's Connecticut and Pennsylvania were fighting over the northern part of Pennsylvania and therefore birth records for Connecticut could be for what is today Pennsylvania.
From the census records I have your Alfred Flower and my Abraham (Abner) Flower lived close to each other. In 1850 Abrahm was in Salem Township, Wayne Co and Alfred was in Sterling Township, Wayne Co. which are side-by-side. In 1870 they were both in Dennison Township, Luzerne County. My ggg grandfather had 3 children: Silas, Friend and Fanny (Catherine). Silas and your gg grandfather were about the same age (Silas was born in 1850) and if they were cousins living close together, were probably good friends.
Let me know if you have found additional information.
