"Henry Flowers, one of the seven sons of old Henry, the first comer, was the father of the late Love Flowers, below Marion; don't know who the wife of Henry, Jr., was, nor is it known whether he had other sons than Love nor whether he had any daughters.

Love Flowers, born in 1790, lived to be eighty-four years old, and died in 1874; he married twice; his first wife was Elizabeth Brown; there were two sons by this marriage, William and John.

William married Caroline Brown, daughter of Richard Brown; he died about two years ago, in Horry County, leaving a number of children. John married Elizabeth Dozier, a sister of J. Tulley Dozier ; John died about three years ago.

Love Flowers' first wife dying, he married Martha Baxley, a daughter of Barny Baxley; by this marriage he had twenty-two children, all of whom died in infancy, except James J., Henry, Williamson, Barny, A. Love, Bennett, Nathan,. Joel, Elly, Everett, Samuel S., Lucy Ann and Rachel. It seems that thirteen of the twenty-two were raised.

James J. Flowers never married; he died in 1865.

Henry Flowers married Sarah Ann James, a daughter of Henry James; he died in prison, in Elmira, N. Y., 1864; he left a number of children.

Williamson Flowers married, first, Elizabeth Marlow ; by her he had a number of children; this wife died, and then he married Mrs. Martha Parker; they have no children; live below Marion Court House.

Barny A. Flowers married, first, Ann Lambert, daughter of James Lambert; no children; she died, and he married, a second wife, Mrs. Ann James, widow of Henry L. James ; they have five children (small).

Love A. Flowers married Henrietta Brown , daughter of Lewis Brown, and had a large family; he was killed by lightning, below Marion, in 1872.

Bennett Flowers married Miss Mary James, daughter of Henry James ; had one child, and died of disease in the Western Confederate Army during the war.

Nathan Flowers married Miss Ann Marlow; no children; he died in prison at Rock Island, Ill., about the close of the war.

Joel Flowers never married ; he died in prison at Elmira, N. Y., during the war.

Elly Flowers married Miss Minnetta Brown, daughter of William Brown ; they had one child ; they live on the old homestead of his father, on Reedy Creek, below Marion.

Everitt Flowers married Margaret A. James, daughter of Henry L. James ; they have five children (small), and live at Dillon.

Samuel S. Flowers married Susan Best, daughter of Captain John J. Best, of Horry; they had several children; moved to Texas eight years ago; the last heard from them, his wife was dead and he was in Keaney, Nebraska.

Lucy Ann Flowers married J. Tully Dozier; they have a number of children, among whom is our present County Supervisor, J. T. Dozier, Jr. J. T. Dozier, Sr., is dead; the widow is living with her son, J. T., Jr.

Rachel Flowers first married Lewis Brown, Jr. ; they had one child, and her husband died during the war; after the war, the widow married J. C. Price ; they have a large family, now in Horry.

Old Love Flowers, a patriarch, had eleven sons in the war, including the two by his first wife, William and John; all his sons went to the war, except Everett and Samuel S.-the two latter were too young. Few men contributed so many to the lost cause."
