|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Floyd Cemetery is on the "ORIGINAL" 1848 headright to the State of Texas from the Peters Colony to George DeLaney Floyd. Aka Floyd-Taylor Cemetery (an area 142 ft x 148 ft, as surveyed) First known/recorded burial, 1862; but George Floyd had a son, Henry O. Floyd, who died shortly after the family arrived in Texas from Illinois in 1848. He died between 1848-1850. Henry was between 19-20 yrs. old, and was not listed on the 1850 Census. The family feels confident that Henry is buried in the Floyd-Taylor Cemetery. The last burial recorded was around 1945. Old family stories, say that the cemetery was setup on a burial ground pre-dating Texas Statehood. The cemetery lies in the original abstract 463 of the George Floyd land grant from Peters Colony, per Survey 89-C on May 11,1853. The survey lines were gerrymandered in 1905 or very early 1900's. Key to locating the survey lines is the location of the spring in Floyd Branch - 20 ft. west of the Highway 342 bridge over the branch.
The Cemetery is in the Smith-Elkins Survey, adjacent to the George Floyd Survey line in southeast Dallas. Circa 2015 , the cemetery fronts on Alta Moore Street. This location is 1400 ft east of Lancaster/Dallas Rd. (State Highway 342).
