I am looking for the parents of my gggrandfather William Enoch Floyd m. Harriett Maude Bennett:
NameAgeDOB/PlaceBirthplace Father's Mother's Wm. E. FLOYD Self421848 SCSC SC Harrett FLOYDWife281852 GANCNC Walter FLOYDSon61874 TXSCGA Amanda FLOYDDau21878 TXSCGA Burnice FLOYDDau4M1880 TXSCGA 1880 United States CensusE.D. 31, Comanche, Texas (from www.familysearch.org)
Both William and Harriett and their parents were born in the SouthEast (NC, SC, GA).William was 23 in 1861 when the Civil War started and likely served. I am guessing that the family migrated to Texas at the end of the Civil War.
The family later settled into Brown, Coleman, and Taylor Counties, Texas.Floyd is my mother's maiden name. Other surnames in my line: Avery, Bennett, Harrison
The 1890 census was destroyed. Anyone with access to 1900 or later that could/would do a lookup?
Any info on Wm. E. or Harriett Bennett will be appreciated.
