Hi I am looking for any information on my Great Grandfather Henry Floyd born June 1860 in Randolph county NC & died in the 1950'S in Winston-Salem NC. I've been researching an old family story that Floyd was'nt really our name. That my Great Grandfather went to live with the Floyd's and took their name. The story was his name was really Henry Elberson. no one still living in the family knows for sure if it's true.Here's what I've found. I went to where he's buried to check cemetary records. The office has no record of a Henry Floyd buried there. He is buried there my Dad & uncle watch them put him there. In the grave plots is a Julia Floyd & Mary E. The office told me the plots were purchased in 1910 by HENRY ELBERSON ! Next I checked the 1900 census. No Henry Floyd. But I found Henry Elberson Wife Mary E.born 1858 Son Charly born 1882 son Ernest born March 1890 & daugther Julia born March 1890. My grandfather was Ernest.My grandfather had a brother name Charly & a twin sister who died young. All the dates match.I am pretty sure his name was Elberson but don't know when it changed and how could he name his kids Floyd when he's on the 1900 census as Elberson I am trying to get his death certif to see what's on it. Henry lived in the Randoplh,Davidson, Forsyth counties in NC. Thanks for any infor.
