John Floyd was an early surveyor, revolutionary soldier, Indian fighter, captain of the revolutionary war privateer "Phoenix," and a founder of Kentucky. He was killed by Shawnee Indians in 1783 near present day Louisville. His son and grandson became Virginia governors. A nephew, Charles Floyd, died on the Lewis and Clark expedition. They were a family of the early frontier. Some note that this picture from a crayon drawing may not be Floyd, but "The Tuley Family Memoirs: A Historical, Biographical and Genealogical Story of the TULEYS and the FLOYD FAMILY Connection in Virginia, Kentucky and Indiana" by William Floyd Tuley, 1906, attributes this sketch to "an old crayon owned by Col. R. T. Durrett of Louisville, the only picture existant of Floyd." The crayon is now in the Filson Club, Louisville. It may well be that it is of Colonel Floyd's son Governor Floyd, born in 1783. It should be compared to his portrait taken (I think) when he was governor. They are much the same. On the other hand, who can dispute this is Colonel Floyd? This copy was in my grandfather's collections, and in mine since 1957.
