I sent this message yesterday but Wiki did something strange with it.
Will do in a day or two. I have never found Thomas Penuel Floyd in official records, only in family genealogies. It seems that some Penuel Floyd genealogists want to ignore the Penuel Floyd who was recorded in Nash County NC records as the "base-begotten" child of Delilah Floyd. Nathaniel Drake's name is mentioned, but so is Francis Parker's. The name of Samuel Floyd as Penuel's father is pure fiction. Penuel was an executor of Nathaniel Drake's estate and was associated with Diocletian Drake. Some genealogists say Delilah Floyd married Nathaniel Drake about 10 years after Penuel's birth. Seems reasonable. First wife dead, I assume. I spent some 30 years researching the Floyds and wrote a genealogical narrative called "The Elusive Floyds." My sources were official records on microfiche -- back when God was a teen-ager. I will try to document everything for you. But if I do not satisfy, your choice is to reject my 30 years of research. I don't think there were two Penuel Floyds. No,just one, and a lot of misinformation is out there about him. By the way, Penuel Floyd lived in Nash County NC, as did Federick (not Frederick) Floyd, my ancestor., both in the vicinity of Pig Basket Creek. Francis Floyd's mother was Jonana Goodson Floyd (Isle of Wight County VA) who married Matthew Lowry after her Floyd husband died. I think he was Thomas Floyd but could have been an earlier Francis Floyd. Nothing definite on that.
