I laugh as I read thru these tails that have been told down thru the years about pretty boy floyd. My significant other is directly from this Floyd family his mother is a Floyd and it is one of their 2nd cousins.
Pretty was born Charles Arthur Floyd on a farm in the Northern part of Georgia Feb 03,1904
In 1911 Mr and Mrs Walter F Floyd packed their brood of children and moved to the Cherokee Indian Territory of Oklahoma
The Floyds settled on a small farm near Akins, about eight miles from the larger village of Sallisaw, Oklahoma.
Charles got his name Pretty Boy at a card game at Mother Ash's boarding house. Beulah Baird Ash took one look at Charlie in his suit,new tie, shined shoes with his hair slicked back with palmaide and smelling of Bay Rum, and Beulah replied "HELLO THERE PRETTY BOY", Beulah Baird Ash later became Pretty Boy's girlfriend.
On September 11,1925, he and two others robbed an armored courier for $11,929.00. alot of money back in 1925. there is more to this story alot more and photos.
Pretty boy Floyd aka Charles was killed October 22,1935 about 4:10pm at a farm between Spruceville amd Clarkson,Ohio at the home of Mr and Mrs. Cookle.
