One ALFRED SMITH (born ca. 1835) married LYDIA FLOWERS (also born ca. 1835) in Pike County, Alabama and subsequently moved to Coffee County. They are listed on the 1860, 1870, 1880, and 1900 censuses of Coffee County. I would like to communicate with any of their descendants.

Lydia was a daughter of Goolsbury Flowers and his wife, Edy (Williamson) Flowers. Goolsbury and Edy were brother and sister, respectively, of my gr.gr.gr. grandparents, John and Nancy (Williamson) Flowers of Pike County, Ala.
