Kathy- I am a descendant of Emily Flynt Alexander Boyd. Emily was the mother of Alma Alexander who was the mother of Delton Kerr who was my grandfather. I have other photos that I cannot identify. Some I believe are of Emily and JC Boyd and perhaps the sons of JC Boyd (before he married Emily) and/or Emily’s daughters and son. I just don’t know. Are you on If you are, I  put the photos I cannot identify on my tree under John Thomas Kerr hoping someone can identify them.. My tree is James Kerr McConnell Adair. If you are not on ancestry, I can email them to you. If you ever get to Nashville, I would love to meet you at the Achieves-Library. On the death certificate of Emily. I actually got a copy from the State of Arkansas. How are you related to  the Flynts?  Becky  Merritt  (James was my maiden name)
