Family Brick Wall: William Scott Flower, of German descent

+5 votes
William Scott Flower was born in Romeo, MI in 1846. He later moved to Iowa and served in the Civil War. I have not found records listing names for his parents, though it appears they were both born in New York. Tradition says they were of German or Prussian descent. In Europe, the surname may have been Blume or Blumer.

Huge thank-you to anyone who can find info on William's parents!
