Thanks, I would like to know more about Benjamin Floyd if you will please

by markav on 2016-09-14 04:01:33

I have been unable to find anything on him. On a tree on Ancestry i found this,
parents of benjamin

Enoch Floyd
BIRTH ABT 1775 • South Carolina, not sure what the correct date is, think typing error
DEATH ABT FEB 1773 • Spartanburg County, SC

Margaret Jane White
BIRTH ABT 1756 • Probably Ireland
DEATH Probably Spartanburg Co

1770 census of Spartanburg there is an Enuch + 2 free white males over 16, 2 f w males under 16 and 1 f white female + 3 slaves
and a johnathan+ family, ebinezer+ family and a John + family all in the same place so i would imagine they are related
BIRTH ABT 1756 • Probably Ireland
DEATH Probably Spartanburg Co
I will keep looking

Wow, thanks. You are good at this. I was able to track my father's surname back to 1400 in England but have been stuck on my mother's side.
