I'm trying to verify that Harmon P Floyd married Lucretia Thomas. We know her given name, but need to verify her Surname. All we have is a letter from a John H Mason in 1962 to a young Floyd cousin, giving her some family history where he mentions Harmon P Floyd married Lucretia Thomas. Lucretia was his grandmother. She was born in TN and raised in Florence, AL where her father was a merchant in Florence buying his goods in New Orleans and bringing them back to Florence by steamboat. He died and was buried in New Orleans from yellow fever. This John Mason said his family never knew what cemetery he was buried in.
I've hunted for probates and obits looking for a Thomas who had a daughter Lucretia. I am at a loss. I sure hope someone can help and shed some light on this.
