The ancestors of Charles Loyd are hiding from me.

Charles Loyd

Born June 29, 1814 in Tennessee, USA
Husband of Margaret (Rogers) Loyd — married December 30, 1838 in Greene County, Tennesse
Charles is my great grand mothers grandfather.
So far I haven't much luck in networking with other descendants. we have theories, but nothing solid.

He probably knew the first President Johnson being from the same small town (or county)!
Thanks Kristina,

Al Starnes who posted the findagrave information is one of the people I have been collaborating with.

I appreciate your input.


Since you had the dates, I wondered whether you already had that information.

On FamilySearch I have accidentally found information on a parent when looking for a child, sometimes on a birth record or as the parents of the bride or groom, or even in the death notice of a child.  Its just fun to keep looking and be surprised (and frustrating).

I hope some one can come up with something for you.
Bill, have you sought any siblings of Charles? I've been successful at finding parents by researching possible/probable siblings.
The other suggestion is to research probate records and land deeds.

There is a marriage record for a Robertson Loyd marrying a Phoebe Phillips that is worth checking further. I can't find a birth record for Charles listing his parents, but this is a lead worth considering:


Robertson Loyd & Phoebe Phillips

Marriage date: 30 Dec 1807 Marriage place: Greene, Tennessee

Contact the T. Elmer Cox library in Greeneville.!telmer-cox-library/cac0

FYI, my dad was born in Greeneville and his family goes back as many as 7 generations in Greeneville.

At least on tree on Ancestry is showing a birth year of 1819 and Parents named Robertson Lloyd and Phoebe Phillips, married to Margaret.  But no good source info.

Opps...I see Doug beat me to it!
