Notes for THEODOSIA ANN RUNYON:

Alex Luken sends this: This comes from Linda Runyon lrunyon@traidrr.com on rootsweb. Note that she has the exact marriage date that Lawrence Russell was looking for in the previous post that I sent you. This means that she has either a document, a bible record or first hand knowledge from a descendant. Let's see if the Henry Runyon/Sarah Simpkins proves out as parents.

Also from Alex: "Docia York was Docia Runyon... It would seem that Henry York was married before to Dicey Starr, based upon Edna York's marriage record <http://listlva.lib.va.us/cgi-bin/wa.exe?A2=ind0104&L=VA-ROOTS&P=R2941&D=0>

(Note: There were not any other posts on this topic at this site)

"This record should settle a few questions about Henry Floyd. I notice that although it was noted that he died instantly (after being shot on the night of October 17,1936) his date of death is officially Oct.18, 1936, no doubt after being examined by a physician (Dr.Farley of Delbarton, Mingo Co., WV) and officially pronounced dead."

Notes for POLLY ADAIR:

Alex Luken writes:

"Rush Floyd Sr. shows up in Rock House, Mingo Co. married to Sarah, with daughter Nora 16, and son George RC Floyd 13.

"Rush Floyd Jr. also shows up in Rock House, Mingo Co. married to Polly, age 30. They have been married for 6 years, with no children. Listed with them is Noah Adair, brother-in-law. Polly is Polly Adair, as there are lots of Adairs nearby. Rock House is in Lee District, same as residency in 1900."

        • Notes for HENRY FLOYD: Pat, Hello. My name is William Michael Floyd. I saw your information on ancestry.com and I think I can help you with some more Floyd information..... My grandfather is George Donald Floyd and he was born in Logan or Mingo county, WV in 1926. He is the son of Henry Floyd who was born (1895) out of wedlock and raised by his mother Dosh York. Henry Floyd's dad was Albert Rush Floyd and he was born around 1875. Albert Rush was the son of Benjamin Rush Floyd. Both went by the name Rush Floyd. Benjamin Rush is the son of George Rogers Clark Floyd and George Rogers Clark Floyd was the son of Governor John Floyd of Virginia. I want to thank you for all you have done. I have been able to find out more than I ever dreamed. You will notice some census information in the documents attached. You can see Henry Floyd's information as well.... Thank you! ....W. Mike Floyd, <wmfloyd@liberty.edu>, May 2007

Steward Floyd is married to Icy Floyd in the 1920 census in Logan Co., and has a son named Rush Floyd b. 1916, and a daughter Grethel Floyd b. 1913 so Steward m. Penny may also be related.
