David Floyd Graveyard
2600 S. Fishing Creek Road
Found this cemetery description in The Bicentennial
History of Waynesburg, Kentucky and Southern Lincoln County 1792-1992.
I remember from my youth exactly where this house stood. It has probably been torn down for about 30 years.
Following is the exact
description that I retrieved from this old history book.
David Floyd, b ca 1792; d ca 1870, is buried on the south Fishing Creek farm now owned by Lloyd and Donna Ruckel.
His grave is unmarked and descendants state that a portion of the addition to the house extends over his grave and
also that of his wife, Nancy Singleton Floyd. David Floyd and his wife Nancy, d/o Christopher and Sarah (Threlkeld)
Singleton, were the parents of Harvey Floyd b 29 July 1827; d 5 May 1912, married Esther Ann Elliott;
Rutha Floyd m Elias Ellison for whose family the community of Ellison was named; and Mariah Jane Floyd who married
(1) James D. McKinzie; and m (2) Isaac Hubble.
A slave graveyard also with
unmarked graves is located on the same farm.
I guess you know my next project will be to find the slave graveyard mentioned. If the following is accurate, these 2 graves are within 30 - 40 feet of where these pictures were taken today.
I hope to put this description in something waterproof and attach it to the telephone pole in pic 4. Thanks, Ronnie
Today I found what appears to be one of the back foundation stones (picture 1)
Pics 2 & 3 are what is left of an old outbuilding and I dug this stone out of the rubble. It appears to be part of a tombstone???
