David FLOYD

HISTORY: It is just speculation on my part that our David is the son of Isham FLOYD. I am not sure if he is the David FLOYD who was a son of Isham FLOYD of Virginia and Kentucky, but dates seemed to fit and places. One of my great-grandaunts told me a few different times that her grandfather John H. FLOYD told her that they were closely related to the governors of Virginia. John H. FLOYD was the son of Volentine FLOYD who was son of David FLOYD. Isham FLOYD is the grandfather and great-grandfather of two FLOYD governors of Virginia. Also Isham had a son named David that would be the right age for our David. Anybody who knows anything else on this line I would appreciate hearing from you.

David's sons list his birth place as North Carolina or Virginia on the census records. I can not find David in 1810, 1830 or 1840. Where is he? Is he in another state? Was he living with another family or were they just missed by the census takers? He is apparently dead by 1850 as Barbara is listed as head of the household.

CENSUS RECORDS: 1820 Smith County, Tennessee page #57
FLOYD, David 1 male under 10 (Volentine), 1 male 10 to 16 (?), 2 males 16 to 18 (William & ? ), 1 male over 45 (David) 4 females under 10 (Sarah, Barbara & ?, ?), 1 female 26 to 45 (Barbara)
(This is the only census record I have been able to find David on.)

Miles Giles PENNINGER

He was 3 in 1860, listed as Miles G.

He was 12 in 1870, listed as Giles M.

MARRIAGE RECORDS: His marriage license says Miles G. Penninger was 20 years old and from Texas Station, and they were married by Robert Lewis MG.


Anna Susan DAVIS

MARRIAGE RECORDS: I found where she had married Miles PENNINGER, on the 26th of July 1878 in Stonefort, Saline, Illinois. When she married Miles G. PENNINGER she said she was 19 years old and the daughter of Robt. H. DAVIS and Polly HALL. I found her marriage license to John FLOYD and she said her maiden name was DAVIS, and that her father was Robert H. DAVIS and her mother was Polly Ann Tullum HALL. She also stated that she had been married once before she married John FLOYD. On the marriage register to John FLOYD she says her name was Ama HALL that she resided in Cottage Grove and that she was born in Saline County, Illinois and this was her second marriage. When her and John were married they got married at George JOYNER's and the witnesses were Martha HALL and Sarah JOYNER and they were married by John C. MAHAN.

NOTES: I can not find her on any census records before 1900.

CENSUS: She was 41 in 1900 and it said she was the mother of 8 children but only 4 were living. She also says that her father was born in Illinois and her mother in Georgia.

CENSUS: She was 51 in 1910 and it said she was the mother of 6 children and all 6 are still living. She also says that her father was born in Illinois and her mother in Georgia.

NEWSPAPERS: Thursday 30 August 1917, Harris Creek, Hardin County, Illinois
Mrs. Anna FLOYD and daughters who live in Kentucky visited at E. J. OXFORD's a few days last week. Mr. and Mrs. Sanford BENNETT who have been visiting the family of E. J. OXFORD returned to their home in St. Louis last week. Mrs. BENNETT informed us that Mrs. Fanny ADAMS, formerly of this county, but who now lives in St. Louis, is in very poor health and is not expected to live until winter.
NOTES: According to her death certificate her maiden name was HALL. She was 59 years old when she died of a heart attack. She had been out milking the cow and her granddaughter Marguerite Floyd was with her. It was early in the morning and she killed over while setting on the milk stool. Marguerite tried to wake her grandma because she thought she was asleep. No one else was home as everyone had left early for work. It was bitter cold and Marguerite laid by her grandma in the barn all day trying to stay warm until someone got home. Every now and again she would shake her grandma trying to get her awake, but she never woke again on this earth. Marguerite was almost 6 years old. She never forgot about laying there beside her grandma all day long on a cold January day, when she was just a little girl. Aunt Marguerite has told me this story many times.


Robert H. DAVIS

CENSUS RECORDS: 2 Sep 1850 Dist #2, Union County, Illinois, page #163, family #266/266

DAVIS, Jane age 5, female, IL

NOTES: Our Anna Susan Davis Floyd, married a Penninger and so did Mary Davis daughter of Robert H. Davis. The Penninger's were brothers. Also Mary and her husband are buried at the Joyner Cemetery at Stonefort. The Joyner's were in-laws to Polly Hall Davis, mother of Anna Susan Davis Floyd.

NOTES: In 1860 I found Robert in two different counties in Illinois. In 1860, August 16th, he is listed in the Elijah Cross family in Bolton, Williamson, Illinois age 34 years born in North Carolina and has $1500.00. In Stonefort, Pope, Illinois he is listed as 32 years old married in the census year born in Tennessee and has $1150.00 and his wife is Susan age 18 years born in Illinois. Apparently he was living with the Cross family then married and moved to Pope County so that he was enumurated in both counties. I found a marriage date of 15 April 1860 for Robert and Susan, so why is Susan not with him in Williamson County?

He says he has been married for 9 years and that his father was born in Georgia and his mother in North Carolina.

NOTES: When he married the last time he said he had only been married 3 times.

HISTORY: Info from the "History of Gallatin, Saline, Hamilton, Franklin and Williamson Counties of Illinois" -1887-
"Robert H. DAVIS, farmer, was born in 1824 in Wayne County, North Carolina the youngest of ten children (three living) of William and Lavina (Hosey, actually HOSEA) Davis. The father, of English-Irish descent, born about 1765 in Georgia, left home at twenty-two, and went to North Carolina, where he married. When our subject was three years old they went to Union County, Illinois and engaged in farming, but in 1828 finally settled in Alexander County, where he died two years later. The mother, of English origin, born in North Carolina about 1775, then lived with her daughter, Mrs. Cross, in Union County, until her death about 1840. Our subject was, after his father's death, hired out to squatters to support the family until he was eighteen, when he married Hannah Hileman and settled eighty acres in Union County. Two of their five children are living------Elizabeth, wife of W. Marshall and Mary, wife of L. Pettinger. After his wife's death in 1852 he moved to Cape Girardeau County, Missouri where he bought a 100 acre woodland tract on the Mississippi River, near Hamburg Landing and established a woodyard for furnishing fuel for steamboats. About a year and a quarter later he went to Pope County, Illinois and settled on 110 acres. In 1860 he married Susan, daughter of Howard and Juliet (Pierson) Gaskins, near Harrisburg. Their seven children are Levi; Harriet, wife of George Burnett; Juliet, wife of Augustus Bright; Ardenia, wife of John Smith; Florence; Delia and Warren E. and a boy and girl both deceased. In October 1873, he traded his Pope County farm for his present farm of 110 acres, well improved, and has become one of the first farmers of the county from his beginning as a squatter's servant. Formerly a Democrat, he has since 1860 been a Republican, first voting for Cass. He is also a Prohibitionist. In 1882 B. & Thomas Garner made him their manager for clearing and buying $7,000 worth of land, and he now has charge of 700 acres for them, 65 acres of which are cleared. He has also loaned money for the Saline County Bank, with the same success in managing as he has shown in his other enterprises."

NOTES: I am not sure this is really Anna Susan's father but every thing points to him being her father. I wonder if Robert and Polly Hall were ever really married?? Is he the real father of Anna Susan Davis Floyd???


Mary Anna Tullum HALL

She was in the under 5 age bracket in 1840.

She is 10 in 1850.

CENSUS RECORDS: 21 Aug 1860 Bolton PO, Williamson, Illinois family #2466/2190, page #1112
HALL, Mary age 20, female, domestic servant, TN
Living in the home of James and Mary ORGAN. She is the right age to be my Mary, but where is her daughter Anna Susan who was born in February of 1859? She is just 3 pages from her brother William Hall and one page after Robert H. DAVIS who is listed with his sister and brother-in-law.
