  1. +John FLOYD III

Notes


Ann Hurst (Wife) b. About. 1742
Children: John Floyd b. 28 Oct 1758 in Mecklenburg Co., VA


Ray Isbell, , notes that this John might be the head of a line as shown here:


John FLOYD Jr. d: 1783 Lunenburg + Ann HURST b: Abt 1742 d: Abt 1781
Capt. John FLOYD III b: 28 Oct 1758 d: 15 Jan 1836 + Nancy (Ann) ANDREWS b: 4 Jul 1757 d: 22 Mar 1857
Martha Elizabeth (Patsey) FLOYD b: After 1786 d: Bef 1836 + Nathaniel PITTS b: 1785 d: 1836..... and he has others.
or:


John Floyd "of Accomack" was also the father of:
John Floyd Jr. d. c 1783 Lunenburg Co., VA., m. Ann Hurst; parents of:
Capt. John Floyd III b. 28 Oct 1758 VA., d. 15 Feb 1836 Newberry Co., S.C., married Ann (Nancy) Andrews.
Their daughter: Martha Floyd ("Patsy") married Nathan Pitts.


Many descendants of Patsy Floyd Pitts maintain this connection, and it is adopted in two books, as explained by Ray in March, 2003:


"Hi, Pat, Actually, no, I'm afraid I haven't seen proof that John of "Accomac" was the father of William (editor: our William of Amherst) and John Jr., but "Newberry County, South Carolina, Historical and Genealogical," by George Leland Summer, Sr., Newberry, SC., 1950, stated that William was an uncle of Capt. John Floyd of Newberry and married the daughter of "an Indian Princess" (which was Adadiah Davis, of course).


"I thought that an earlier book, "Annals of Newberry" by John Belton O`Neall (1793-1863), also said the same thing in the section on Capt. John Floyd, but will have to doublecheck on that.


"Suffice to say that the two branches of Floyds evidently had been in contact at least by the 1890s (if not before 1850s?), or before 1900 anyway since the information was at least 50 years old when Sumner wrote it, and perhaps someone in the family had been writing to William Floyd's descendants to discuss genealogy. Of course, that was all the rage in the 1890s, so it could the information could have come to S.C. in that way.


"But since grandchildren of William Floyd & Abadiah Davis were living as late as 1850, it's not that far-fetched that the families had exchanged a few letters or at least knew they were cousins. Grandchildren of William and John (Jr) living in 1850 would have only been second cousins to one another, or the children of first cousins.


"Some of Capt. John Floyd II's children lived into the 1880s."


Ed.: I think it entirely possible there is a connection to William of Amherst here. Later, Ray writes:


"I found my pages from "Annals of Newberry (S.C.)" by Belton, and there are a lot of pages on the Capt. John Floyd family, but I don't find ANY references at all to his being John Floyd III or the nephew of William Floyd, etc.


"Therefore, the earliest published reference to William Floyd being his uncle appears to be the 1950 George Leland Summer book. No sources are cited in that book, but it is packed with information which Summer collected for decades. No doubt he got it from some of Capt. John Floyd's descendants in Newberry, S.C. Capt. John Floyd had children living into the 1880s and grandchildren living past 1900, but who knows which ones Summer contacted. I wonder if his files & correspondence have survived and might be in some archives.


"The book is: "Newberry County, South Carolina Historical and Genealogical Annals" by George Leland Summer (not Sumner) (1881-1956)."

Notes


John Simmons: Deacon of Balochitto Baptist church, died at the residence of his son-in-law, E. C. Andrews, in Pike County, Miss., on the 27th of June, 1881. Bro. Simmons was born in Barnwell District, S. C., September, 1803, moved to Pike county, with his parents, when quite young, resided near the first settlement until his death. He united with the Silver Creek Baptist Church in 1835, withdrew to go into the constitution of the Mt. Zion Church, in July, 1838, and was, at the same time, elected Clerk. He served many years as Clerk, and resigned on account of being hard of hearing. Several years after, removed his member-ship back to Silver Creek Church; shortly after, was elected Deacon and ordained by said church -- withdrew his letter to help constitute the Balochitto church, October 12, 1873, and was, at the same time, elected Deacon, and served faithfully. "Uncle John, " as he was familiarly called by every one, was truly a good man, a consistent Christian, a kind husband and loving father. He has gone to that land of rest, leaving a widow and several children, relatives and many friends to lament his death. May God's choicest blessings rest upon them.
Done by order of the Church.
Respectfully submitted,
