Floyd of Plainview, for the past 25 years a prominent figure in the public life of Yell County, died at his home last Thursday morning at 8:00 oclock from the effects of a self-administered dose of poison taken the day previous. Mr. Floyd had been in declining health for more than a year and his rash act was doubtless due to the apparent hopelessness of regaining his health.

He came to the Yell County in early childhood and had continued to reside here continuously since.

On April 27th, 1898, he was united in marriage to Miss Maggie Wilkerson, who survived him. To his latter union one child was born, a son who died in infancy.

Mr. Floyd was admitted to the bar at Danville on September 3rd, 1989, and was admitted to practice before the Supreme Court in May , 1906, He represented Yell County in the lower house of the General Assembly from 1897 to 1900 inclusive, a was a member of the Senate from this District from 1905 to 1909, inclusive. He served six terms as Mayor of Plainview, 1910 to 1916. He was editor of the Fourche Valley Herald from November 1st, 1919 to October 1st, 1921.

Mr. Floyd was a member of the M. E. Church, South, also the Masonic fraternity, the Odd Fellows, the W. O. W. and the Knights and Ladies of Honor.

Funeral services were held at the family home at 1:00 oclock Friday afternoon, being conducted by Rev. J. M. Williams of Plainview, Rev. N. E. Fair of Belleville, and Rev. Claude Hill of Booneville. In charge of the Masonic Fraternity, the remains were conveyed to the cemetery at Rover where interment was made.

Besides his widow, Mr. Floyd is survived by one sister, Miss Zetta Floyd, of Poteau, Okla. and two brothers, Andrew Floyd of Charleston, Ark., and Rev. J. C. Floyd of Tulsa, Okla.

Geo. E. Floyd was a man of unusual attainments, a brilliant lawyer, and eloquent speaker and a forceful writer. He had an abiding faith in the greatness of this State and County, and until stopped by declining health was an earnest and successful worker for the material, moral and educational upbuilding of this section. True to his friends, fair to his enemies, generous, kindly and considerate in all of his dealing with his fellows. George Floyd was a man who won the respect and admiration of all with whom he came in contact and his untimely death brings regret and sorrow to every section of the County which he loved so well, and for whose betterment and growth he so long and earnestly labored.

Joe Henry Floyd - Native served state he loved all his life BY LINDA S. CAILLOUET Arkansas Democrat Gazatte

As a child Joe Henry Floyd, who grew up in rural Arkansas, loved nature and its creatures. One of his fondest memories was of his zoo made up of his pet raccoon, rabbit and fox. Those ties to his Natural Stale remained when he became an adult living in Little Rock, he always had his 3 foot wide patch of garden in his backyard.

During his years with the Arkansas Highway Department, he tried not to let progress steamroll nature. When the Interstate 430 bridge crossing University Avenue was being built, Floyd headed up the project. When a killdeer laid its eggs on the ground in the middle of the project at hand, Floyd ordered his crew to work elsewhere for about three weeks until the eggs hatched and the birds were gone.

Another time on Arkansas 5 in Lonoke County, Floyd used the cleared land on the side of the highway to plant a few acres of turnips He even convinced the operator of the big water tank truck used oil the construction project to water the rows when a dry spell hit. Floyd then shared the vegetables with those who lived nearby.

Floyd, a longtime resident of Little Rock, died Saturday. He was 89. He was born May 6,1909, one of two sons of Ruby Hunt and William Taylor Floyd of Rover His father, who worked as a merchant in his grandfather's store, died when Floyd was 8. A few years later, he moved to Plainville where he met his future wife, Janice Boss. The couple married when she was 16 and he was 18 in the late 1920s. During the 1930s, the family moved to Fort Smith and later to Newport where Floyd bought a Gulf Oil distributorship He lost it during the Depression a year later.

During World War II, his work filling candy machines at the ordnance plant in Jacksonville made him an essential employee and kept him from being drafted until he was reclassified. He was drafted a month before he was 35 and served for a year in World War II in the South Pacific. Back from the war, he again worked servicing vending machines. He had worked as an usher at Travelers Field, and eventually became the groundskeeper and stadium manager, working as Ray Winder's right hand man from the 1950s to the mid 1960s. He loved baseball, but neither of his two sons ever became enamored with the game.

In the early 1900s, Floyd went to work for the highway department inspecting road construction and the ditches and drainage along the roadways. He retired around 1974. He was always hard-working and always kept busy his son. Dr. Bill Floyd of Little Rock, said.

About a year before retiring, Floyd began working as Chief Sergeant of the Sergeant of Arms for the Arkansas House of Representatives. He did that for about 16 years until he was about 80. He was so proud of that Floyd said. He got to meet everybody said Floyd, adding that his father had never met a stranger. While guarding the doors to the House, Floyd decided to wear a red blazer and a red tie. It soon became required dress for the others. Floyd also wore his signature blazer for special occasions and Christmas. He will be buried in it today, his son said.

Rev. J. M. Floyd Dead. Father of Representative George E. Floyd Happening at Danville.

Danville, Ark. Jan 23 - Rev. J. M. Floyd, father of Representative Geo. E. Floyd, died in Belleville Saturday morning and was buried here Saturday. Mr. Floyd was an unsuccessful candidate for chaplain in the house. He returned from Little Rock a week ago and was taken at once with the gout and inflammatory rheumatism, which caused his death five days later.

He left a widow, four sons and a daughter, all grown. His son George arrived from Little Rock a few hours before his father died. Just two years ago George Floyd who was then as now a member of the legislature was called home on account of the death of his wife, arriving a few hours after her death.

Floyd, Joseph Milton (Rev.)

Floyd: Rev. Joseph Milton Floyd was born January 18, 1838 in Talladega County, Ala. and died at his home in Belleville, Ark, January 21, 1899. In early manhood he went to Bedford County, Tenn., where he was married to Miss Mary Ann Bennett, who, with four sons and one daughter survive him. He came to Arkansas in 1860 and located near Ozark. In 1861 he enlisted min the Confederate army and served to the close of the war.

In 1866 he came to Conway County, where he lived for 20 years. We are not informed as to the date of his connection with the church He was licensed to preach in the M E Church South, in 1872, and ordained deacon in 1877.

Until his death no one was more zealous in the cause of Christ His services were in demand far and near, and he always responded most cheerfully, visiting the sick, comforting the dying and counseling the bereaved No one gave more time to the ministry than he. He possessed the power of song in a wonderful degree, often in revivals preaching and leading the singing. Often friends would say to us, "I would love to see your father and hear him sing." But, dear friends, father has ceased singing on earth, and joined the orchestra of heaven to sing forevermore. We will, in the sweet by and by, greet him in that beautiful land, of which he so often sang, and hear that loved voice in clearer, sweeter strains. These words, "Father is not expected to live Come at once," came to us like a thunderbolt from a clear sky, and with all possible haste we made our way to Belleville, arriving to find him cold in death. How dear to us now are the promises contained in the Book Devine, and the sweet hope of resurrection. Dear mother, we realize that it will not be long till you, too, are called from earth to meet him you shared the joys and sorrows of earth so long Dear brothers and sister, cheer up, and bear bravely the responsibilities of life, honoring him who so faithfully taught us the way of life. His son. Jos. C. Floyd (WWW.YellCountyObits.org, Submitted by: Bill G. Floyd, Newspaper: Arkansas Methodist, 7-5-1899)

Floyd, William Taylor

Brother William Taylor Floyd was born near Springfield, Ark., December 10, 1879. When a small boy he moved with his parents to Yell County, Ark.

He was married to Miss Ruby Hunt of Rover in 1906. To this union were born two bright sweet children, Harry, age 10 and Joe age 8.

Brother Floyd was converted under the ministry of Rev. J. H. Goodson, and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church , South of which remained a faithful member until the day of his death which occurred on November 30, 1917. Brother Floyd was a good man; his house was the home of the preacher, his hospitality was unstinted, as every preacher who has had the good fortune to be his pastor will testify. For some time he served the church as Sunday school superintendent, and was both faithful and efficient. He read our church literature and kept himself informed as to the progress of the kingdom of God and felt a keen interest in every enterprise of the church. Though a great sufferer, he bore it with the true Christian fortitude and when the end came no cloud bedimmed his sky. To the bereaved ones left behind let me say, Weep not as those who have no hope; only be true to God and you will meet him again in the land of the unsetting sun W. E. Hall.

Flurry, Gertie Johnson

In Memory of Mrs. Gertie Flurry. Our hearts were saddened last Saturday morning, February 15, 1936, when the Death Angel claimed its victim Mrs. Gertie Johnson Flurry, age 38 years, of Delaware, Arkansas. Mrs. Flurry was born and reared at Delaware, where she spent her entire life.

Beautiful in character, sweet, generous, talented and accomplished, a loyal friend and sister and an untiring worker. She was thoughtful of others, forgetful of self at all times. A joy it was to her to lend a helping hand wherever an opportunity presented itself. She loved all near and dear to her with a great love. Many times has she stood by the bedside of her own family through sickness. She will be missed so much, not only in the home, but in church and in the community and in all its activities. But it was God's will that she go, and our loss is Heaven's gain. Earth was made dearer with her here and Heaven is nearer now since she is there. In suffering and pain she exhibited great patience. God, in his loving kindness will no doubt mete out to her an extra reward for all things done while here. We miss our dear one more than we can tell, but on the other hand we know and feel that she lives with God and His angels, where she experiences joy and happiness beyond our understanding, for all eternity in Heaven where some day we hope to meet her again. Oh, consoling thought, and wonderful reality, comprehended only by those whose religion has taught them to believe in its Supreme Being. Her spirit will live on forever and hover near us and remind us of her many loving deeds and virtue worthy of imitation.

The funeral service, in charge of the Fentress Mortuary of Ft. Smith, was held at the Assembly of God Church Sunday at 2 p. m. being conducted by Rev. L. L. Riley, Pastor of the Assembly of God Church of Russellville. Interment was in Graves Cemetery.

Mrs. Flurry is survived by a daughter, Elwanda; her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Felix Johnson; a sister, Irenah Johnson, all of Delaware. (WWW.YellCountyObits.org, Submitted by: Patron, Newspaper: , 2/15/1936)
