Michael, I have some info someplace that I received from another researcher several years ago. To the best of my recollection Noah had many children by his first wife and many by his second wife. The total was astounding. My interest in Noah and Jesse Floyd is an attempt to locate the origins of Frederick Floyd born about 1769 and moved into the now Horry County area of SC in 1785. Research shows that in early 1700's Jesse and Noah left the Chowan district (I think) of NC and went to the Williamsburg area of SC. I think they also started a Church there. Jesse was a son of John Floyd and all the Clarendon area Floyds came from these lines. I am convinced there is a connection of sorts and therein may lie the connection I'm searching for. As for the original question, I have no idea! What do you think?
