Thanks for the information about Floyd twins. Would you care to provide me with further information, such as:
1) Where in the string of offspring did they occur (First-born, second etc) 2) Identical or Fraternal twins and sex, 3) How many generations between twins in same family line.
I find it interesting that they are descended from a FRANCIS Floyd, as I believe that was the Christian name of my long-lost relation that came to Virginia just before the Revolution, from France, via Barbados. Would you happen to know Francis' religion and which State he was born in?
Please reply offline if you prefer, and can help me fill in some blanks. The 'twin-line' seems to persist throughout our Floyd/Lloyd ancestry but in early days if a child did not reach the age to be Christened they were often not even recorded as having been born. Thus, if one twin died early there was often no record of the survivor having been a 'twin'.
