Note: I a letter written to Julia Ann by her cousin, George Albert Bounds who frequently made trips from his home in Louisiana to visit her in Carthage, he includes a hand written list of family births and deaths. On the list, he gives Julia's full name as "Julia A. I. Floyd". I do not know what the I. stood for. Perhaps Isadore?

Julia Ann Floyd Britton was born in Barbour Co. Alabama, the daughter of Theophilus Offie Floyd Jr. & Elizabeth Bounds. Theophilus was killed in the Civil War from wounds received in the Battle of Chickamauga on Sept. 20, 1863, and afterwards, Elizabeth moved the family to Bossier Parish, Louisiana along with her brothers, sisters and other related families. Later, Julia Ann married Benjamin Franklin Britton on March 3, 1876 in Panola Co, Texas and they raised a family and lived in Panola County, Texas where he was from.

Back in Louisiana, Julia Ann's mother, Elizabeth, had re-married to a widower named Abner Wood in 1871. Later, after Abner Wood died around 1890-1900, Elizabeth moved in to live with her brother, Stephen Henry Bounds who had also lost his wife Narcissa Lott Bounds.

While in Texas, Julia Ann received many visits and letters from her closest cousin living in Louisiana, George Albert Bounds who was the youngest son of Stephen Henry Bounds. Many of those letters to Julia Ann still exists today. Some of them contained dates of Births and deaths of family relations and ancestors.

There are also many letters written by Julia Ann giving first-hand accounts of the hard farming life she and Frank Britton were living in Panola county, Texas in those early days.
