Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am originally from California but now live in Texas. Did not know much about my family history just bits and pieces. I just started working on my ancestry earlier this year. I somehow found this website not too long ago and though that it was neat. My family the Carters, Meeks, Kuykendall and Hines are from Van Zandt County Texas area. My other side the Simons, Ahrenkiel, and Lanes are from the Iowa to Missouri area. The Ungrues are from Germany.
I am married, have 2 sons (we lost the youngest in 2008), and have 3 wonderful grandsons.

Bennett O. Flowers

I see that you maintain the memorial for Bennett O. Flowers who married Nancy Kuykendall.

I'm a descendant of Henrietta Caroline Kuykendall and William H. Flowers.

I found a record naming William H. Flowers and a B. Flowers, along with seven of the Kuykendall men that enlisted in Jordan, Saline, Van Zandt County, Texas in Captain Whetstone's Company No. 6 Infantry Reserves during the War Between The States.

Do you think that B. Flowers and Bennett O. Flowers are the name man? I believe it to be likely given that they married sisters.

RE: Kuykendalls in Wills Point Texas
Thanks for the name--I found it in my tree and it fits. Sarah Malinda Kuykendall Carter Slater was the sister of Peter Erasmus Kuykendall Jr. who had Clara Kuykendall, and Clara went on to marry Greenie M. Parker and they lived in Wills Point, having kids and grandkids, including my dad. Sarah and Peter Jr.'s father was also named Peter Erasmus Kuykendall. My dad, as I mentioned in my first message, who would also be the great-great-grandson of the Sarah/Peter Jr. and 3rd great grandson of the Peter Sr., always pronounces the last name as if it were spelled "Kirkendall", so I was just wondering if you knew if that was a regional way to say and spell this variation of the name (which, as you mentioned was VanKuykendall in records overseas).

Sorry for the typo
My computer always marks Kuykendall as wrong, so I didn't catch that I flipped the y and u until after I hit sent. My apologies.

Kuykendalls in Wills Point Texas
I am researching the Clara Kuykendall/Greenie M. Parker line out of Van Zandt County Texas. My dad is their grandson and he always pronounced Clara's last name like "Kirkendall". Is Kuykendall simply an alternaltive spelling with the same type pronunciation or do I need to be looking for a name change somewhere along the line? I am doing most of my work on the free site and there seem to be quite an established kuykendall family history in that area of East Texas, just wondering if there were spelling differences or if they were all related and spelled the same. I appreciate all the detailed info on Thanks!

Bennett Flowers
Do you know if the name has one "T" or two? The entry shows two, but the gravestone has one. I have seen it both ways.
