I have a copy of the will of Francis Floyd who died in Rowan Co. NC in 1816, In this will he states that His wife Susanna is to have the home and one hundred acres of land.I am a decendantof his son John. I have beend searching for Francis's parents for about 20 years and have not had many leads at all. It may be that he is the son of John Floyd listed in the 1790 census of Rowan Co NCage over 45 years.but no Proofhevery well could be Francis's brother. My mother's maiden name is Floyd. Are you connected to the Knup family of Marshall Co. Ky? Francis's grandson Francis settled in Washington Co. Indiana after 1820. One source states that Francis ( the grandson) came to Indiana with the Motsinger family.Hemarried Susan Motsinger in 1823 in Washington Co. She was the daughter of Jacob Motsinger Jr. This Francis was the son Of John the son of Francis. Another source states that FRancis Sr. was from Isle of Wight Co. Va. I haven't been able to positively verify this. You might want to read the post of Joey Floyd in this forum. He is also a decendant of Francis Sr. through his grandson Basil, the twin brother of Francis who came to Indiana. I have visited some of Basil's decendants in Davidson Co. NC about 8 years ago. Susanna Floyd may have left a will in Davidson Co. NC in 1822, I haven't found it so far.
