The Floyd's of my family are George b. 1874 who married Clarice Asbell. They lived in Atkinson County, GA in the 1920 census. I see a George Floyd living with an uncle Amos in the 1900 census as well. All of these names were on your site in one place or another. Does this make any sense?Dan Cahill [dcahill@fdn.com].

Death*26 March 1975 He died on 26 March 1975 at age 62.2 
Biography*1999  James Albert Floyd looked less like the Floyds than most. His hair was jet black and his features sharp. Early in his marriage he lived in the oldest house in the county. The house still stands at the edge of Morris Floyd's property and is occupied by a black family. During Albert's occupancy the very rustic living room/bedroom was adorned with a blue velvet sofa. Both of Albert's daughters grew to be fine ladies of Cochran. Cookie became the outstanding teacher for the county and Gwendolyn had a noteworthy career in business.
Here is what his sister Mary says of him:As I remember James Albert Floyd he was tall, dark, and very handsome!! Yes, he did not have the fair, freckly skin that most of us (or some of us) had. He had that skin that would tan easily and as a grown man usually had a little sharp mustache and sometimes smoked a pipe and to me that was the making of a "sexy looking man." Albert was married to Lilly May and for the life of me I cannot think of her maiden name. Now back to Albert, when he decided to marry all three boys proposed to their girlfriends and all got married at the same time (If I remember correctly). If someone with a better memory than mine disputes this - take their word rather than mine.

Biography*1988  INTRODUCTION FROM A TALK GIVEN BY MVW AT FLOYD FAMILY REUNION
Perhaps one of the most thrilling moments we as individuals experience is finding for the first time a connection between ourselves and our extended family of ancestors. We seem to feel a sense of belonging, of permanence, of worth, of psychic satisfaction in knowing that we are part of an ancient genetic line, that some of our own personal quirks and foibles are shared by some distant relative in the past, and that those same happy or embarassing quirks and foibles will be shared by another in the future. Oliver Wendell Holmes, the 19th century American writer, became enchanted with the orgins of his own pecularities and inclinations and finally settled upon this charming explanation:
"My character or nature is made up of infinite particles of inherited tendencies from my ancestors - a little seed of lazines came from this grandfather, some remote grandmother has stamped me with a fear of dogs and a love of horses; there may be in me a bit of outlawry from a pirate forefather, and a dash of piety from one who was a saint. My so-called particularities, my gestures, my ways and manners, I borrow them all, without exceptions. So everything in me passes on through my children. I am sewn between ancestry and posterity."
It is the nature of man to wonder why and for what purpose - to keep on trying in the face of enormous difficulty and sometimes to become despondent at the lack of answers to the the questions. Perhaps a bit of reflection on being "sewn between ancestry and posterity" will ease the burden of "whys". Consider for a moment how important we are to our ancestors. They have never known us - in fact could only have guessed at us and yet without us they could not be linked to the future. Consider also that, hard as it may seem, each of us will one day be an ancestor for generations yet unborn. Having been given an awarness of our position between ancestry and posterity, we have an obligation to leave our descendents a proper record of ourselves, and the best starting point for the story is today. Lets look around the room today for we are all here descended from James Edward and Annie Holland Floyd. They are no longer here, but there children remain and the mark they made on Bleckley County Georgia remains a reminder of the individual worth of each of us.
Ed and Annie produced a normal farm family of twelve children seven of whom are here today. Let us begin to tell our story and leave our record by telling a bit about each of the Floyd kids here today.
First, there is Aunt Shug, Viola, and I won't tell you when she was born, but I believe it was before the automobile was invented and before the Wright Brothers flew at Kitty Hawk. She's seen a lot and is still going strong. She told a story about having to run away from home to get married because her parents did not approve of her husband, Lucian Berryhill. If any of you kids of today think your parents are tough, just talk with Aunt Shug. She'll understand.
Next is Uncle Buddy. Has anyone eve seen Uncle Buddy upset, angry or anything other than steady and reliable? I think he is one of those "saints" that Oliver Wendall Holmes mentioned in the little quote I read you. He is everyone's perfect grandpa.
Uncle Herschel is the seventh child of Ed and Annie Floyd. He grew up to be a politician of sorts. Back in the fifties he though so much of the race for the governor of the state of Georgia that he entered his mule "Rufus" as a candidate. Guess you know what he thought of the competition for the position. Herschel is Jerry's father it is through Jerry's sons, Lance and Jason that the Floyd name will be carried into the 21st century.
You can think of the next three children, Annette, Mary and LaVerne as the three muskateers of the Floyd family. Is there any adventure these three have not experienced either alone or as a trio? Annette and Mary are about to strike out for Egypt to see the pyramids. This is a follow-up to their recent expedition across the United States. One wonders what Ed Floyd would think of his two girls wandering across the globe? LaVerne has owned more houses, businesses and had more husbands than anyone else in the family. There's no need to reveal the girl's ages, except to note that they are all over sixty. If you young people among us do in your lifetime half of what these three do in one year, you are in for a big life.
Uncle Aaron is another steady male Floyd. He is probably best known for all the good looking women in his household. He has the most and the best looking females. Wouldn't Ed and Annie be amazed at their children if they could be here now?
We are here today to rekindle our friendships, to remember our heritage and to encourage interest in the family among our children. Don't forget that we are caught in the fabric of ancestry and posterity and without us the fabric would not be whole. That's reason enough for each of us to get out of bed each morning.
NOTE: in 1998 the three muskateers took a trip to Greece together and in 1999 Annette and Mary became computer literate. Not bad for eighty year old ladies.
James Edward Floyd know by all as Ed Floyd was the son on a Civil War veteran who never owned his own land. His father, Shadrack Floyd, grew up knowing a grandfather named Amos Kinchen Floyd and all the many aunts, uncles and cousins associated with the ever-expanding Floyd family of Pulaski County, Georgia. Throughout his childhood he heard stories told and retold of the family's arrival in Georgia from North Carolina, but like most children he found it difficult to comprehend any period of time predating his grandfather Amos. Somehow, history seemed completely centered around his grandfather who was sixty years old when James was born and must have seemed quite ancient. It is easy to see how James Floyd could assume that this old man must have been the original settler from North Carolina who brought the family to Georgia. When he was approached in the mid 1950's and asked to contribute a family history for publication in the story of Pulaski/Bleckley County, no doubt he thought it was quite accurate to state that his grandgather, Amos Kinchen was the original pioneer from North Carolina who arrived to settle the newly opened Indian lands the fall between the Ocmulgee and Oconee Rivers in Georgia. James was wrong about his family. His ancestors from North Carolina was in fact one of the earliest settler of the new Georgia County of Pulaski, Federick and Mourning Floyd.
Travel frequently dictates the breadth of a mind and imagination. The life of a middle Georgia farmer in the beginning of the twentieth century was restricted to the distance that could be covered round trip in one day from the home place. A farmer seldom spent a night away from home for the animals needed constant and daily attention. Without access to television and only a local newspaper for information, it is not surprising that James Edward Floyd, would have a restricted view of his roots. Lacking education and the broad vision of travel, it is most likely that he did not have a complete awareness of the intricate web of people full of courage, foresight and even wealth whose very lives had brought him to Georgia. Certainly, "Ed" never knew that his third great grandfather, Abraham Bass, was a large land owner in North Carolina, and certainly he had no comprehension of the long journey from North Carolina that his great grandparents, Mourning Bass and Federick Floyd made when they embarked for the "new frontier" of Georgia. One memory, however, was very clear to him. The Civil War had been such a disruptive force that the stories of its effect were widely known to Ed. He knew of the suffering the the war brought to his family and of the physical and mental cruelty of the war. He told his children how, when the war ended, his father, Shadrach was left a prisoner in Greensboro, North Carolina with only one means of transportation home, his own feet. Ed Floyd may have lacked detailed knowledge of his distant origins, but the parts of his history that he did know left an indelible mark. He had known the effect of the war's impoverishment and of his own father's lack of land and a mother's early death. This knowledge left him with a strong hunger for a better future. He was living in an America of visions and hope and dreams could be as large as the July sky. The past taught James Edward Floyd to want land of his own, proper equipment and a good family strong with discipline. His first priority would be a suitable wife and he found her in Annie Jane Holland who he called the "prettiest girl in the county".
In marrying Annie he knew that he was getting a prize for not only was she pretty, but patient and strong as well. Their meeting was a natural product of an earlier courtship between Ed's brother, Arch Floyd and Annie's older sister, Margaret Juliette. The older couple married on November 28, 1897 and in the early spring on March 27, 1898 just as the piney woods filled with dogwood, Ed and Annie were married, set up housekeeping and birthed the first of their twelve children in March of 1900.

The start of the twentieth century was a grand new beginning for the Floyd family. It was a time to break with the landlessness of the past and through hard work and perserverence to enter the modern world. Annie and Ed Floyd's first child, a daughter, was named Viola, but called "Shug" was born with the new century. Perhaps this sweet name was conferred by a doting grandmother or Aunt who found her "sweet as sugar". Indeed this was a special child whose birth preceded the automobile, the airplane, electricity, the telephone, television, radio and even the right of women to vote. This was a child who would come to represent the twentieth century for the Floyd family for she would live through all of it ----- and in her lifetime she would see men go to the moon, open her own business, defy her parents and marry a man for love, not support and always with a grace and patience that reflected her name.
If Viola was the first of the new century, James Edward Floyd and his wife Annie were the last of a the old one. They were the last to use a mule for ploughing, the last to pay for everything in barter or cash, to live primarily from their land and the last to remember the south when it seemed the an outpost of civilization. Their children would see the development of the south as a major region of the country responsible for a hugh portion of the economic growth and heir to the blessings and responsibilities of the 20th century. Atlanta would explode into an international city connected by air with all the capitals of the world and a Mecca for businesses seeking to reap the benefits of climate, topography, life style and opportunity for economic growth. Indeed its very history prepared the South for its rise to stardom in the final third of the 20th century. For just as Annie and Ed Floyd sometimes burned the stubble in their fields in order to add freshness and vigor to the plantings of the following season, so too did Sherman's burning of Atlanta add the enrichment and renewed vigor of a fresh start to the town.
The new Atlanta grew as a young lady determined to develop beyond the provincial town of her childhood. She used the chaos and disruption of her formative years to forge a character both beautiful and progressive. Looking back was not her style - only the future mattered. It was the stress of the past, the loss and the hope that caused the new south as personified in Atlanta to flower into full maturity as the century closed. In fact, a new "Miss America" was chosen on the day in October of 1990 when the announcement came from far-away Japan that "the International Olympic Committee has chosen for the 1996 Olympics... (and there followed the longest five second pause in the history of the city). ATLANTA, GEORGIA!". The town and the south roared with joy as though all of the past had been directed to this very moment and this very goal. Atlanta would be a good home to Annette's children and grandchildren.
Annie and Ed Floyd like many of their neighbors were part of this past and their immediate descendants would live to savor the satisfactions of goals reached, battles won and the endless possibilities for a future of enlightenment. Indeed the adventures and development of the twelve Floyd children from Bleckley County, Georgia parallels and mirrors the developments that were happening to their south. Watch the children grow and you watch the South grow as well. Both started the century as barefoot country kids who walked to school. In 1990 a reunion of the family at the home place of Annie and Ed revealed well-dressed, educated adults with sophisticated tastes and a vast array of travel experiences. Annie Floyd seldom left Bleckley County except for one notable trip to Washington, D.C.. where Ed and Annie Floyd proudly posed in their "Sunday best" in front of the United States Capitol Her children would visit China, Egypt, Europe and the Orient - places that Annie barely knew. Just as the South started the 20th century as a backwater area of barefoot dirt roads and matured into the glorious adult of Atlanta, so too did the Floyd family blossom from the soil of Georgia. Listen to the tale of the Floyd children as their fortunes will put flesh on the bones of the South. Just as Federick and Mourning Floyd led the family from North Carolina to the new hope of Georgia at the begining of the nineteenth century, so too would the J.E. Floyd family lead the way into the new world order of the twenty first century. The twentieth century was a gestation period in which great growth takes place in a hidden environment and then suddenly breaks through the shell and erupts full-grown into the world. This growth period took place in a small segment of Bleckley County in Georgia. Where a look at a map dated 1908 shows Ed Floyd living in the very place where his home stands still in 1992. The land in the early days did not belong to Ed for he was a tenant of James Smith. Being the son of a landless veteran meant that Ed needed time to accumulate capital to buy a farm. And, bit by bit he acquired land until circumstances improved enough that the old house could be replaced not once but twice. Typical of the time, Ed Floyd cut the lumber for the new home right on the place and allowed it to cure in the barn for a year before starting construction. True to his thrifty nature, he did not build until he had saved the materials and the cash for the new house. When construction began, the family moved down the road to a little one room house. Soon all the remains of the original home were removed except for the well, and like the growth of the spring crops, the new home sprang quickly from the ground complete with wrap-around porch, two swings, high ceilings, a patterned wood floor in the parlor, wide center hall and a spacious kitchen. The windows were large for summer ventilation and the whole structure nestled under a tin roof that gave a merry sound in a rain storm. What a palace this was! In fact, it was one of the best homes in the county. Later additions of a pond for Annie the devoted fisherman, the smokehouse for curing bacon, an outdoor kitchen, several barns and an outhouse made the place close to self-sufficient. Pecan trees shaded the back and provided winter delicacies, and across the front of the house were planted four live oak trees named Shug, Buddy, Tina and Maureen. (A visit to the "home place" in the summer of 1992 with Shug (Viola) revealed that only the Shug oak still stands.)

Anecdote*2002  In 2002 Annette Floyd Kaplan was asked about "Bailey's Park" and the following is her response.
Bailey's Park: My first recollection of Bailey's Park as a child is that is where Papa went on election day to collect poll taxes from the voters and help run the election and see that no one voted who was not eligible to vote. Bailey's Park as I remember consisted of two or three houses, one of which was a nice two story house made of dressed lumber, as opposed to rough sawn boards which was the normal type of construction. and a small country store where the precinct for the elections for the Limestone community were held. Until our new house was built the house at Bailey's Park was the best one in the community and Uncle Archie and Aunt Julietts was second best (it actually had wall paper in at least one of the bedrooms) I remember because I heard them talk about how you could not get rid of bedbugs with wallpaper on the walls for you could not scald down the walls and kill them. Colored people papered their walls with! newspapers and whatever else they could get their hands on in order to help keep the cold wind from blowing through the cracks. Those houses were always alive with bedbugs.
I do not know who the original owners of Baileys Park were but judging by the surroundings they must have been well to do. At the bottom of the hill behind the main house, was a swimming pool which was fed by many boiling springs and the water was icy cold and would turn your lips blue in a very short time. There were two dressing rooms at one end of the pool--one for males and one for females. So it must have been some kind of public recreation area. The first people I remember living there were the Newmans'--renters--one of their daughters, Lola May married our cousin Joe Floyd, brother of Morgan Floyd. A few years later after Uncle Archie died and lost his farm, Aunt Juliette and her family moved into the big house and Bud and Cora Lee moved into one of the smaller ones and Efford and his wife moved into another one of the small houses. It was during this time that I swam at the pool. Shug would drive out from town in the afternoon and we would all go to the pool. Prior to that time we swam in the Jackhole (located beyond what would lbecome Annie's Pond).
Now, where is Bailey's Park--stand on Wayne's front porch and face Annie's house - go down the road to the right about a mile until the road deadends at the Chicken road at Limestone Church. Turn left and go about the distance of three or four blocks and on the left is what was known as Bailey's Park. (You went there when you went to church with Gwen and Cookie.) I do not know where the two-grave cemetery is. I am sending a copy of this to Bob in hopes he will query his mother and see if she may shed any further light on who owned the Park and about Shack Vickers and his family.

Birth*1840 James Everett (son of Nancy) Floyd was born in 1840.1,2 
BirthIlleg1840  In 1840 at Pulaski County, GA, Daniel Webb was not the father of Everett Floyd, as far as I know. No one knows who Everett Floyd's father was, or if they do know, they are not telling. I suspect some of those folks (the Dykes family) in Cary know but are continuing to keep a lid on it. In 1850, nine-year-old Everett Floyd was living in the house with Washington J. Floyd, his wife Susan Lister Floyd and mother Mourning Bass Floyd somewhere out there on the Ouchee Trail about five miles from Cochran. This was after Everett's mother, Nancy, married Daniel Webb. Everett does not appear on the bastard list in Pulaski County, but that does not mean he was not illegitimate. Unmarried Nancy Floyd give birth to Everett about 1840. She later married Daniel Webb. Someone connected with genealogy once told me that having at least one illegitimate child was common in those days for unmarried women. It was called an early form of social security. And Nancy's plan worked perfectly. When she became aged she lived with son Everett and his wife Mary Scarborough Floyd. This story could make a good book.
