RE: Cain Line
Hi Dorothy, I'm so glad to hear from another relative! Do get in touch with me at I'd love to see what each of us has that we could share with the other. Some of the Cain's have been hard to find because of the spelling, Cain, Cane, Caine, Kane, etc. I'm sure you've ran into that too. Waiting to hear from you. Alice

I don't know why I posted her memorial since she is not related. Apparently, I had her stone pic and decided to set it up. If she is one of yours I will be happy to transfer it to you and get her husbands stone pic. Let me know.

I saw you posted a flower on her memorial. Are you related?

I come thru her daughter Keziah Knight who married Isaac Hanks and in the 1860's after the CW they moved to Wayne Co, IA.

I hope you are, it would be so neat to finally find another descendant.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Dorothy! I received your message regarding Elvira Jordan-Cortner. I'm afraid that I lost a major backup of my work on California families, and can no longer confirm whether or not Elvira was the daughter of Levi Jordan. As a result, I have removed the note I had left on her page back in 2008.

The only thing I can confirm is that Elvira was part of the team that came to California from Texas along with John Jordan and family (Levi's brother). A daughter of John, Mary Ann, later became the wife of William Cortner. He was the brother of Elvira's husband, Amzi.

I will continue to search here in California and send any information I find along to you.

I tried to email you, Dorothy!
Hi--we're related via Ambrose & Otilia Deichelbohrer. Wanted to see if you have more information on the German ancestry. Want to get in touch?

RE: Roland and William Flowers
Dorothy, I am so sorry I am just now replying to your message. I've been busy at work and haven't done much in a while.

Roland Flowers is my gggg grandfather. His son Arthur Garrett Flowers is my ggg grandfather. His son Reuben Arter/Arthur Flowers is my gg grandfather and then we take a female path to me. Reuben's daughter Nancy Jane is my great grandmother. Her daughter Minnie Cora Roberson is my grandmother.

I haven't been keeping track of siblings as I have been trying to find the direct line on the Flowers side for Daughters of the American Revolution. I am a member through the Hart family but am trying to find the Flowers connection next.

Roland was in the Revolutionary War as a private.
Roland enlisted in the Revolutionary war in the Spring of 1781 and served three months in the company of Capt. Silas Williams. He later served as a substitute for his father in Capt. Peter Gearin's Co. and was at the siege of Yorktown. After the war, he lived in Virginia until he was 22 and then he moved to Pickett Co. TN. Roland drew his pension while living in Fentress Co. TN.

Have you looked at this link:

Roland's dad was James Flowers 1743 VA - 1826 VA. His father was John Underwood Flowers 1703 VA - 1770 NC. His father was Henry Edmond Flowers 1680 VA - 1745 NC.

And it was his father that came to America. Jacob Flower 1635 born in Ratcliff, Stepney Parish, Middlesex England. He died in VA in 1690.

I hope this finds the brothers well. Please feel free to email me

Thank you for helping them find their ancestors.

Carla Smith
gggggggg granddaughter of Jacob Flower
