This site is a part of The TXGenWeb project and The USGenWeb project devoted solely to the genealogy and history of Morris County, Texas. My name is "Joe" Reynolds, the county coordinator, and I would like to welcome you to the Morris County TXGenWeb Project. I'm very glad you stopped by and hope that you find this website useful for your genealogical research. I'm always in the need of help in getting data on-line. If you'd be interested in helping in any way please read this. I may not be able to help with specific research questions, but should you have any questions or comments regarding the Morris County Genealogy Project, please e-mail me.

Floyd County is on U.S. Highway 70 northeast of Lubbock in the High Plains region of the Panhandle. The county is bordered on the north by Swisher and Briscoe counties, on the east by Motley County, on the south by Crosby County, and on the west by Hale County. The center of the county lies at 34°05' north latitude and 101°20' west longitude. Floydada is the county seat and largest town. In addition to U.S. Highway 70 the county's transportation needs are served by U.S. Highway 62, State Highway 207, and the Fort Worth and Denver, the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe, and the Quanah, Acme and Pacific railroads.

As of the 2010 census, its population was 6,446. The county is named for Dolphin Ward Floyd, who died on his 32nd birthday, March 6, 1836, defending the Alamo.

 


 

Several years ago the USGenWeb Project was created to further the craft of genealogy in the United States and to the extent possible, keep genealogy free. One of the goals was to also develop a network of volunteers who would establish a genealogy program in each state. For this state it is the TXGenWeb Project. Use these links to visit the two websites which fully explain the goals, methods, and successes of both projects. If you would like to sponsor a county, please read Information About Sponsoring a Texas County or E-Mail Shirley Cullum. You can also view a list of our Orphan Counties, or see a Listing of All Texas Counties.

You are researcher 1931 -- thanks for stopping by!
