"Tom Ben" Floyd was not the son of Theophilus & Elizabeth Stevens Floyd. Who ever gave that information was very mistaken. First, where was he at on the 1860 census?
His parents were George William Floyd & Patience Simmons.
This information comes form The Heritage of Pike County, Alambama published in 2001 and submitted by James Ira Floyd, 921 County Road 117, Ariton, AL
This is a small part of what he submitted: Tom Ben's father was George William Floyd born about 1815 in SC -- and emphatically not Theophilus "Ophy" Floyd, as previously published, although probably related. George William Floyd's wife was Patience Simmons, born NC, daughter of Luke R. Simmons and wife Priscilla Hargette. Luke R. Simmons was a North Carolina State Legislator and later served as a State Representative in Alabama during the time when the county courthouse was at Monticello. Tom Ben's paternal grandparents were William Floyd Jr. and wife Louise Bowden of SC. Parents of William Floyd Jr., were William Floyd Sr. and wife Elizabeth Ferguson.
