I am trying to find information on a FLOYD family that apparently left either NY or Illinois, for California during the gold rush. It is believed that Daniel (A?) Floyd and his wife Mary Hunter, travelled to California and settled somewhere around the Sacramento area at the height of the gold rush. They had a few children, one of them was a son William Harrison Floyd born abt 1852? and at least 2 daughters whose names are unknown. William Floyd left home by age 14 but it appears that the family were still in California and there is no indication they left. William did not get married until about 1893 in Iowa. I have been unable to find any information on this family at all. William subsequently died in 1930 in Oregon.
