Zina, my name is Alston Bellflower of Jacksonville Florida. I too am in pursuit of more info on Rev. William Balfour, I have been searching thru old Royal Treasury documents online an think I may have tied him to a John and Henry Balfour....his brothers possibly, however I cannot prove it with documentation yet. I do know that Henry and John had a brother named William who was a minister, just don't know if its our William. I have compiled a Bellflower Ancestry book with the help of my wife and would love to send you a copy if you would like. The best way to contact me is via email: Jackson3944@bellsouth.net this way I can send you links to my document sources, and also yours you list references on your yahoo post about William, where did you find these references? and also you mentioned a family Bible I am very interested in that. Just so you know who I am in relation to your family; my granfather is Tommy Benard Bellflower, his father was Hubert Baxter, my grandfathers granfather was William Jesse Bellflower one of the twin brothers. So we are cousins somehow! Like I said before email me any time and will send you a copy of my book when I get some contact info. Also, if you have access to this family bible, I would love some pics of the names in it. Look foward to hearing from you.
