My GG grandfather, John S. Floyd, was born in Fairfield County, Conn. in June 1826. He
moved to Iowa (date unknown) and fought for the Union in the Civil War with an Iowa unit.
He died in the Iowa Soldiers' Home in Marshalltown, IA in May 1902. His wife was
Lydia (maiden name unknown). I cannot find much information about them, including their
burial location. They lived most of their lives near Eagle Grove, IA. Any information
would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
