I've started researching my family lines and I have several Buckners in my direct ancestry. I saw none in any posting subject here, so I'm hoping it might be a clue for finding my line. I have Floyd grandfathers back 6 generations before me and would like to know more. Here's some info for anyone able to help me, reverse chron. order, starting w/ my Grandfather.
Otto Sontum Floyd b. Darlington, SC, moved to Ravenna, OH. siblings: Buckner, Robert, John
his father: John Buckner Floyd b. 1869 Darlington, SC m. Louise Sontum d. 1910
his father: John Floyd b. 1836 Darlington, SC m. Tamsie (or Fannie) Bland (John was a rifleman in the Civil War and was present at "Crater" battle)
his father: Capt. W. J. Floyd (Darlington?)
his father: Buckner Floyd (moved to Darlington from Virginia, was said to be one of the "illustrious Virginia Floyds"
I got all of this info from a book entitled "History of Ohio," since the line wound up there until my grandfather Otto (nickname Junie), who moved to Florida to stay.
I'd be very grateful if anyone has info on these men, more dates, etc.
