First of all, it's been a while since I checked the GenForum posts and even longer since I've attempted any genealogical research. Uncle Sam has owned most of my time since 9/11/01, but it is refreshing to see the research continuing. My fear is that we will never know half the answers we search for.
Mrs. Miller is correct in that, several times, she has pulled me back in line with her extensive research materials. I've pondered many questions concerning the Floyds and some of my posts have been written to help verify info and to provoke thought into several possiblities.
Several years ago I traded information with a researcher from Virginia. I have forgotten her name since then. But, she was adamant that all the Horry County Floyds descended from one John Floyd. I know not which one. I obtained information that suggested an older Samuel Floyd resided in Horry County with a Son named Thomas born about 1763. It also mentioned that Samuel died in the year 1800. I also found this info on an LDS site (not the time of death) and there may have been a Benjamin Floyd listed as well. I have absolutely no verification of this. I also think, nothing to support this, that many of the younger Floyds that entered the Horry area in 1785, were born in NC. Probably in and around the Chowan County region. I do have a copy of the e-mail, somewhere, that I recieved from the lady in Virginia. I throw nothing away. Once I am released from active duty and have access to my research, I'll try and remember to post the info out for you guys and gals to ponder.
It would really be an accomplishment if all the Horry County Floyd researchers could get together and brainstorm all the information we possess. We could dispel many rumors and compile enough information to help unravel some of the confusion.
I personally feel there is a wealth of information out there that has been passed down through time and with someone who doesn't care to research the family lines.
