I need the parents of Nimrod Floyd and/or his siblings. I believe Hiram Floyd may be his brother, he is at least a near relative. The earliest record I've found is the Campbell County, Tennessee, Federal census with a wife and one son under 5 years of age. He was married 9 July 1837 to Mahala Keller (may be a married name as a granddaughter said her maiden name was Emory)in Rhea County, Tennessee. Did his first wife die? In 1840 he and Mahala are in the McMinn County, Tennessee with two sons, one 5-10 years old (probably Nimrod's son from first marriage) and a son under 5 years, also a female 60 to 70 years old is living with them. Presumably she is the mother of Nimrod or Mahala. In 1850 they are living in McMinn county, then Nimrod dies in 1856 and is buried in Culvahouse-Butler Cemetery in Meigs county. Any information will be appreciated.
