Birth: Sep. 11, 1843
Death: May 31, 1924

HANDWRITTEN NOTE BY EDITH ELLEN TERWILLIGER KYLE 1963
A number of years ago, when I was a small girl Uncle Floyd and Aunt Margaret Kyle adopted a small girl by the name of Jennie. She grew up to a young lady and married Albert Perkins. Her sister was adopted by a family by the name of Donnelly who lived in Newark Valley and were in the Business of selling Tombstones. These girls both skipped out never heard from then since. When Uncle Floyd Kyle died, they settled his estate as though they had died.

ANDERSON HILL, JUNE 3 - The sad news of the death of Samuel Floyd Kyle, of Catatonk, reached here Saturday afternoon. He passed away Saturday morning at his late home, after a long period of arduous suffering. He was a son of the late Thomas and Margaret Yerks Kyle, and they removed to this place when their family were young. I do not know the exact time, but it was more than sixty-eight years ago, and the parents resided here until all were grown and with one exception settled in homes of their own. S. Floyd Kyle was twice married. His first wife was Margaret Howard, of this place, and they were married in 1864 and began housekeeping here. Later they moved to the middle west, where they resided a few years, then returned to this place, where they resided several years, when they purchased the home at Catatonk, where he has since resided. Mrs. Kyle died at this home many years ago. A few years later he married Emma Stuart, who survives him, also two adopted daughters survive, Mrs. Laura Dence and Cora Kyle at home. He leaves two sisters, Mrs. Jane C. Lane and Mrs. Clarissa M. Wentworth, of Candor, and one brother, James Aaron Kyle, of Santa Anna, Cal., and many nieces, nephews and grandnieces, to mourn his departure. He was a kind and loving husband, father, neighbor, and friend and will be very much missed by all with whom he associated, or was known. The funeral was held Monday afternoon and largely attended at his late home and interment was made in the family plot in Woodbridge cemetery.

OBITUARY - CANDOR COURIER - 5 JUNE 1924
S. Floyd Kyle of Catatonk, who has been so seriously ill for a long time past, passed away Saturday morning. Mr. Kyle was a resident of the place for many years. He is survived by his wife, two daughters, two sisters, Mrs. Jane C. Lane and Mrs Clarissa M. Wentworth of Candor and one brother James Aaron Kyle of Santa Anna, California, and many nephews and nieces, grandnephews and grandnieces. The funeral was held at his late home Monday afternoon, and was largely attended. Interment was made in Woodbridge cemetery at Catatonk, where he was tenderly laid beside his wife who departed this life many years ago. Mr. Kyle was twice married, his first wife was Miss Margaret Howard of this place, and they were married in the autumn of 1864, and began housekeeping in a part of the house owned by the late Charles T. Wheeler. His second wife was Miss Emma Stuart from near Owego. He was a kind and loving husband, neighbor and friend, and one who will be very much missed by all who knew him. Thus one by one all of our older friends and former neighbors are leaving us. Not one person now resides in this place who were here fifty years ago. For a time just your correspondent was the only one left here, now she is elsewhere.
