Thomas C. Floyd was born in Spartanburg County, South Carolina around the year 1823. He married Nancy S. Reynolds on 29 Feb 1840 in Hardeman County, Tennessee and she is the mother of all his children. By 1850, they moved to Marion County, Illinois, and by 1860, he was living in Miller County, Missouri. After the Civil War, on 13 Sep 1866 he married his second wife, Elender Renney. They lived in Pulaski County, Missouri according to the 1870 census but have moved to Washington County, Arkansas by 1880 and by 1900 Thomas was living with his daughter, Caroline Luttrell in Miller County, Missouri. He indicates his date of birth as Jan 1831 on the 1900 census records which cannot be correct as I'm sure he didn't marry his first wife, Nancy, at the age of 9. Family stories tell that Thomas married Elender Renney only to take care of his children which she resented. Supposedly she was very mean to her step-children.
Thomas apparently suffered several medical problems during his military service. Civil War Muster Rolls: Thomas Floyd, Unit: C Apt. Jefferies County, (D), Osage County Regiment Missouri H.
