A SR Floyd is found in the roster for the 12th Regiment Texas Infantry (Young's)Neighbors from the 1860 census are also in this unit.
There is a possibility that Samuel R Floyd is Samuel Rayburn Floyd my great grandfather who settled by 1868 in Ouachita Co AR.He married Ellen Morgan Jan 1870 per census record.
Does anyone have other information on either of the Samuel Floyds or anyone else listed above? Does anyone know the connection between the Bannister/Wells families and the Floyd Family. Thanks in advance.
