I am looking for any information on Samuel F. Floyd of Horry SC. Samuel F. Floyd was born in about 1757, possibly in NC.He is reported to have moved into the Horry County SC area around 1785 with other Floyds. The 1800 census shows him living near a Samuel Floyd Sr., Frederick Floyd, and Francis Floyd. Some researchers have said that Samuel's brothers were named James, Francis, and Frederick. Records of land transactions in Horry County and census list him as Capt. Samuel Floyd or Samuel F. Floyd around 1800, Samuel Floyd Jr. prior to 1810, and Samuel Floyd Sr. after 1820. A Samuel Floyd Sr. (an older Floyd) listed in the 1790 and 1800 census is not in the 1810 and subsequent, which may explain why Samuel F. was listed as a Jr. before and in the 1800 census, but not after. His title "Major" used in Goodspeed's history of MS indicates he was in the military. He was referred to as Capt. Samuel Floyd about 1800 in Horry SC records. His first wife was Ann Farrer, with children Cornelius,Marion Francis, and Ann.His second wife was Sarah or Ann Lewis with children Avy, Harmon, and Samuel. He was appointed Justice of the Peace or Quorum for SC on Dec 15 1797, and served until at least 1818. He was nominated as a Commissioner with others to establish a Courthouse in the new county of Horry in about 1800, and served on the County Commission. Samuel split and gave his plantation to his youngest sons Samuel Jr. and Harmon in 1821. He is last listed in the 1830 Marion County census, indicating he died between 1830 and 1840. Speculation on Samuel's father include the Samuel Floyd Sr. in the 1790 and 1800 census and in land records, an Andrew Johnson Floyd born 1726 in PA listed by some researchers, and a Frederick Floyd listed in Horry District probate records.
