Update 2 October 2022 from Susanne Floyd:

I have gone back to the census data. I recommend that Andrew Floyd be removed as spouse of Ann Floyd and father to these men and that “Capt. Samuel Floyd" (yes, there is that), which needs more exploration from the SC Archives references to come be added as spouse and father.


So far there is no primary source (will, deed, land transfer, census) that suggests Andrew Johnson Floyd existed. All is noted through secondary sources and tradition. It was unusual at the time to have a middle name. No record except secondary sources for this. The SC Archives have nothing indicating his existence. The only Andrew Floyd that they note is the Revolutionary Soldier Andrew Floyd from York District, SC across the state. That said, some researchers are convinced that this Andrew Floyd existed based on nothing but unsourced trees in various platforms.
