John Floyd (1751-1783)and Jane Buchanan Floyd Preston).Mary Columbia Floyd's father was George Rogers Clark Floyd(b.1810 Christianburg). This GRC Floyd was the 5th (of 12)child of Letitia Preston and Gov. Brig.Gen John B. Floyd(1783-1837, the son of Col. John Floyd and Jane Buchanan Floyd Breckenridge). Prior to his birth his brother also named GRC Floyd died in infancy. The family record states that my GRC Floyd married or did not marry his Indian consort.This would be Columbia's mother.Anyone know anything? Columbia Floyd(1850-1938) m. Josiah Thomas Wiles(1836-1921)both are burried in the Wiles Family Cem. in Mingo co. W.Va.Columbia's son, George Rogers Clark Wiles was my ggrandfather.His siblings include Rush Wiles, Myrtie, John Buchanan/Montgomery Wiles, Nicketti Wiles Brandt. Anybody??? Thanks!
