The Floyd County Historical Blog

Entry for July 18, 2006

An abbreviated meeting of the Floyd County Historical & Genealogical Society was held last night. Our President, Nava Jo Austin, was absent due to her husband being in the hospital. There was one visitor, and some time was pent in attempting to anwser some of her questions. She was particularly interested in locating the Conley Cemetery on Little Paint. It was determined to invite a couple of local individuals who are knowledgable in cemetaries to the next meeting.

Does anyone have any idea as too how many family cemetateries are located in Floyd County? How many graves does it take to be a cemetery? 1? 2? or how many?

Would anyone like to comment on historical sites in Floyd County. Are there some little known sites that we are not aware of?

Check the Floyd County Pictorial History published by the Floyd County Historical Society and the Samuel May House. I believe it has some pictures from Wayland. They may be willing to share.

I am trying to find out about my great great grandparents, Thomas Alley and Rebecca Williams Alley. It has long been believe that Thomas was the son of either William Alley and Sally Akers or David Alley and Ursula Branham. They lived on Abbott's Creek and appear in the 1860 and 1870 Floyd County Census records. They had 3 sons, Anderson, George W. and William Thomas Alley. They most likely died sometime between 1870 and 1880 because Anderson and George are married when the 1880 census is taken and William Thomas Alley, my great grandfather is living in Martin County with Frances Alley Crum and John Crum. Any information on Thomas and Rebecca would be greatly appreciated. Rebecca was the daughter of John Williams and Eveline Yates Williams, but I have been unable to find any documentation of Thomas' parents.

Does the Floyd County courthouse house all the tax records for land that is currently Pike county (and was Floyd County)? Or is that information housed in Virginia?

Looking for the Mullins' old home place (and Mullins Cemetery) which is located on 8 acres of land in Hunter, KY. Google search for Mullins Cemetery in Hunter, KY does not provide information on this particular cemetery. Family who are buried there are not limited to: Jay and Polly Jane Mullins, Jonas and Mindy Mullins, a Costa.

I am told by a family member that the land is currently "owned" by the grandson of Jonas and Mindy Mullins, but she did not know the name of this person.

Please email me with any information at d.l.mullins@hotmail.com.

Many thanks!

I am looking for information on the Robinson Family. My Grandparents were Saul and Mindy Robinson. My father was John H Robinson. He had 9 brothers and sisters, all born in Floyd County, KY. I have family there, but do not have any contact with them. I had an uncle who was killed in WWII and I'd like to visit his grave, but I don't know where it is. I think it is a family cemetery, but I'm not sure. If anyone has any information for me, please send me an email: blaseg.pat@gmail.com. Thanks so much for listening!
