Below is what I have found on the Floyds of Anderson/Pickins County, SC. Zedrick Benson Floyd was my G.G. Grandfather. I am yet to find Silas & Mary Floyd on the census after 1850. Silas may have had a brother named Samuel Floyd b. 1790. It appears part of the Floyds moved to Hart Co., GA in the late 1850's.
