The South Carolina Floyd, not the Virginia Floyd

A while back, I linked to this post, which references South Carolina federal judge Henry Floyd, whose name is not John Floyd, as I wrote.

John Floyd is the name of a former Governor of Virginia, and the Secretary of War under James Buchanan, and who died and was buried in Abingdon. His adopted daughter was the wife of federal judge Robert William Hughes, who was also buried in Abingdon. I have written about Judge Hughes here and here.
