Biography

In my research, I have found relatives in all sections of the country. They are descendants of princes to paupers; poets to politicians; plantation owners to pickers; pilgrims to pioneers; preachers to professors; postman to post office wanted posters; Presbyterians to Pentecostals; privates to generals, serving in every war we have fought. Nothing surprises me anymore. What other family has a signer of the Declaration of Independence, William Floyd (NY), and an FBI Most Wanted, Charles Arthur “Pretty Boy” Floyd (GA/OK). Suffice to say in the almost 400 hundred years from 1623 (first documented American arrival) till now, we are about as American as you can get!

In addition to my profile data:

Interest in genealogy since youth, active collector/researcher of family data since 1971; 12,000+ records in personal active database under constant research, refinement and repair/replacement.

I appreciate it's open, non-commercial, structure and mission.

Hi Ron! I confirmed the merge for my great great grandmother Mary Cunningham Floyd. Given your interest here, I assume you are my family? I would love to hear from you! I met a few of James' brother's grandkids recently. The one I know lives right around the corner from my great Aunt (Jones) in Farmington, still. My father grew up in Farmington.

Mary's granddaughter (my grandmother), is still living and DNA has helped me find others. I actually ran into Mary's oldest son's granddaughter on ancestry!

Thanks Ron, for all you work on the Seays, especially.

My cousins and I have researched our Seay connection back to John Seay who died in Richland County, SC in 1828, but simply cannot find a connection to his first wife Pauline Nassery (his second wife was Mary Ann and we have her will) or to his father. Not even sure where he was born. Do you have any info? He is neither listed in the DAR patriot list or NSCDA. His son James H. Seay was a noted planter in Richland whose second wife was Sarah Wilmoth Carter who's maternal grandparents were William Fox (1743-1816) (DAR #: A041463) & Sarah Carroll Fox;
