Looking for info on John B. Loyd living in Bedford County, TN. He was born in 1839 and married Paralee Arnold in 1865.
John B. is the farthest back I can find. Would like to find parents, siblings, etc. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

My loyds were in Bedford, TN before they moved to Missouri. The Loyds in Bedford at that time came from North Carolina around 1810-1820. My GGGGGrandfather was Howell Loyd and I believe his father may be Nicholas Loyd??. There were two others I believe to be Howells' brothers, Joseph b. abt 1795, and John b. abt 1806. All were born in North Carolina, Granville caounty. John Loyd did have a son, John that was born in TN abt 1836. This Johns mother was named Alice.

Thanks for your reply.

This gives me a trail to follow. According to the 1880 census, John B.'s father was born in Tennessee and his mother was born in North Carolina. Tennessee used to be part of North Carolina and became a state in 1796 and so maybe there is a mistake on his dad's place of birth. I'm not aware of any of the Loyd's living in Missouri. All the family since John B. have lived in Tennessee.

Do you know if John B. had any siblings?

Thanks again for your help!

The brother John that I mentioned moved to St Clair, MO and was on the 1850 Federal Census for that county with a son John born about the same time as yours. There were other siblings; Matilda and James. There was also another Loyd on the 1830 census named Leo, possible son of Nicholas also. As far as I can tell all the ones I have mentioned moved to MIssouri by the 1850's Censuses except for Joseph, he died in Bedford County around 1844. In which all his children also moved to MIssouri excpet for one daughter that went to Arkansas. Are you sure yours stayed in TN?

It looks like there was on Loyd left after 1850 the name was Lucy Loyd, the mother of your John I am guessing. They showed up together on the 1860 census for Bedford County. Could have been married to Leo/Lee Loyd. Can not find any other records after 1840's. So far as I can tell the Loyds that I have mentioned in previous posts were the only ones to move to bedford.

Yes, I'm sure they stayed in Bedford County. I'm not sure what county John B. was born in but I do know that he married Parallee Arnold in 1865 in Bedford County and the rest of the family has since resided in TN. Before this, I can't find anything definitive.

Thanks for your leads and replies!

The Lucy Loyd you mentioned was widowed while expecting her 3rd. & last child(John A. Loyd. Her children were William Jefferson, Martha Jane Loyd Walters & John Alexander( which for many years was thought to be John L.) Martha & John married in Bedford Co,TN. then moved to Texas. Took me many years to locate them. I decend from William J. & Rhoda Shelton Loyd( Both are buried in Shelbyville.Bedford Co,TN) They were my G-G Grandparents. For a time there was also another William Loyd in Bedford Co,TN. He moved I think to Green Co. not sure. I also printed off a photo of a Lidia Bell Loyd Garner with Husband & In-laws from Foulkner Co. Arkansa not related but thought I'd mention. Hope this in some small way can help. Jackie A. Loyd Boyd

Thanks for your reply.

I can't seem to find any connections for John B. Loyd. There were several Loyd lines in Bedford County, TN but not sure where mine fits in. William Jefferson and Rhoda Shelton seemed to be researched pretty well.
