I'm going to put my 2 cents in. Please note that anyone doing genealogy research, including Reverend Moses Floyd, should always take their "for fact" info directly from PRIMARY SOURCES and not from postings on this site or any other. In response to Lamont's posting, I suggest strongly that before so adamently stating a "recounting the text from A COMPLETE HISTORY OF METHODISM" that you actually go back and read what it says because stating over and over that things are false or unknown when they are very clearly written in this first-hand accounting by Reverend John Griffing Jones in his circa-1887 book. The book is even available on the internet, so you don't have to own the book.
For example, in the chapter on Tobias Gibson in A COMPLETE HISTORY OF METHODISM, I quote: "[Tobias Gibson] made his plea [to Eastern Methodist Conference] for help in traveling his [Mississippi preaching] territory, and was assigned Moses Floyd of Georgia." In the chapter on Reverend Lorenzo Dow, I quote: "On a trip from Georgia to the Natchez country in 1803...where he met Moses Floyd, an ddelivered to him several letters from relatives in Georgia." The Floyd family may have earlier originated in Horry County, South Carolina, but this is sound evidence that the Moses Floyd who was a circuit-rider in Mississippi Territory had direct ties to Georgia by 1802-1803.
In the chapter Marriage of Rev. Moses to Miss Hannah Griffing: "Mr. Floyd studied medicine and became a practitioner for awhile in St. Albans, where he also farmed, and preached locally...and continued to practice medicine and farm until the war of 1812-1815...He stopped a short time on Pine Ridge, where he taught school, as well as practiced medicine and preached. He finally moved to Natchez, and continued as Dr. Floyd, teaching, and preaching until 1814 when he died from measles."
Now I agree that the book's author at times states something that later has been proved differently. For example, Jones says only one of Floyd's 5 children ever married, yet we know that two of his children married = Salina Floyd married Wm. Bolls--who are my direct ancestors--and her sister Lucinda Floyd married William Williams. It's nice to be able to substaniate any source with additional backup proof, and although that's not always possible, attempts should be made to do so.
