William Floyd b abt 1775 of Pike Co Alabama had a son John.In William's estate settlement John was said to be in Arkansas. That was 1852. In many online family trees I had found that John married Hannah Bradley 12 Nov 1850 in Pike Co Alabama. I have found information that proves that John son of William did not marry Hannah Bradley. I sent for a copy of the marriage record and it contains the following information: "The state of Ala Pike Co B Fitzpatrick....I Hugh floyd do herby consent for my son John to marry Hannah Bradley this ___November AD 1850attestHugh Floyd signed by his mark sworn to dc B F" There is also a notation of Hugh Bradley giving his permission for her to marry John Floyd.
I had found an 1850 census Possible 1850 census 4 doors from brother Bartholomew (also sister Rebecca married a White) 1850 Jackson Co AR Bayou twp 29-29 Stephen White31farmer Ellen23 Tabitha 6 or 9 Newton2 JOHN FLOID 24farmerborn Alabama (note spelling is same as Bartholomew on this page) Elizabeth Gray18
That shows a possible Arkansas location near his brother Bartholomew.

Does anyone know the relationship of this Hugh Floyd to William Floyd, father of Samuel, Hugh, Evan/Ivan, George W, Rebecca (md White), Morris, Margaret (md Wood), Bartholomew, John J and Andrew Timothy? The names Hugh, Evan and Bartholomew keep popping up alot in Pike Co. Thanks
