I am NOT a Preston/Floyd researcher. I have purchased several DAR Magazines at an auction and I am very slowly trying to post info as I come across it. I do not type fast nor well. There are a couple of genealogical records not related to this line included in the magazine that I do not have time to post. If anyone is interested in this Aug/Sept 1973 issue of the magazine it is 10.00 including postage. I hope someone will try and post the other surname info as I have done here.
This is a wonderful source of information and it pretty much shows the locations where Dr. John Floyd and Letitia lived by the places of birth given for their children.
I have tried to copy the information word for word, I did abbreviate when possible to save some time. I may not have the month and day listed for some of the children.
