***Thank you to My Parent's - Jim and Pat Dodd for sponsoring this Memorial and providing the Portrait.***


My Great-Great Grandfather, my Mother's Great-Grandfather - a wonderful man who cared about humanity.

Early pioneer of Dallas County - Charles Floyd donated a 100 X 100 plot for the first Colored School in this section of now South Dallas County (at time of this writing 2004). This is at the intersection of Ray Rd and Telephone Rd and a small sign is posted.

It is historical and there is a well which was shared by both white and colored students - springfed by the Rock Springs. Ray Road Rebel Historical Value does not matter when it comes to Dallas Southern Sector.


Check out the Floyd-Taylor Pioneer Cemetery.

DEVELOPERS want to BUILD OVER OUR ANCESTOR's GRAVES (it is "just in a field"- prime location for their warehouse district). Watch the Channell 11 news clip of my Dad's effort's to stand up for "the common man" against BIG DEVELOPERS. Efforts to save the Floyd Homeplace and spare our cemetery further "foot-traffic" and vandalism and ultimate demolition. Ray Road Rebel Historical Value does not matter when it comes to Dallas Southern Sector. No Poltergeists wanted here!

This could be any American Citizen - we must stand up for our rights or lose them. Rebel Wins at Dallas City Hall
