Born about 1792 in North Carolina, then shows up in the 1830 census for Dooly Co. Georgia. Married in 1825, not sure where, to an unknown first wife, also Welsh, possibly a Miles. Matthew had 10 children by wife #1, Jane, Mary, Penelope, Emeline Louisa, David William, John, Roxyan, Robert, Seaton and Matthew Isaiah. In 1850, he marries for the second time, Christian Wellman, no children. Probable death in 1884. Several of his children show up later in Florida, as well as his widow Christian...Holmes and Columbia counties.
Reasonably prosperous farmer in Dooly Co. Searching for the name of his first wife. Also his parents and just which family in NC he descends from.
There is also a Benjamin T Floyd in Dooly Co, marries Mariah Dalton in 1848. I do not know if Matthew and Benjamin are related.
