Birth: Aug. 2, 1896
Winn Parish
Louisiana, USA
Death: Jul. 1, 1906
Winn Parish
Louisiana, USA

She was the daughter of Francis Victor and Virginia Carolyn Olliff Floyd. While playing outside, she was struck by lightning and killed. My Maternal Grandmother (Maude's Great Niece) claims the storm came and she was trying to hide under the house when she was struck. This account turned out to be false when an article about her death was found October 1, 2014:

The Southern Sentinel (Winnfield, LA)
Friday, July 6, 1906
Page 4, Column 2
A Little Girl Killed.
Mr. T.J. Henderson of lower ward two was among the visitors to town Monday. He said the best rain his section has had since March fell there Sunday. During the rain the 12-year old daughter of Bud Floyd was killed by a loud clap of thunder. She was on the road with a party of seven or eight others returning from Sunday school. She was instantly killed and as there was no evidence of lightning striking in the immediate vicinity she must have been killed by a shock from the heavy thunder.
