Help finding the parents of Joshua Lloyd

+8 votes
Hello! I hope you all can help me out! I've been looking unsuccessfully for quite a while for the parents of my 4th great-grandfather, Joshua Lloyd (or Loyd).

Here is what I know about him so far:

He was born in about 1767 in Virginia (which I'm sure was a colony at the time). He married a woman named Phoebe (maiden name unknown, would love to find this out too!), unsure of what year they were married.

He died in 1860, in Hawkins County, Tennessee.

Thanks in advance for any kind of info!

In looking at your profiles of this family, William G. Lloyd and Stephen W. Lloyd more than likely were the children of a first wife of Joshua.   Below is a marriage record for a Joshua Loyd.
