Our Roots in Floyd
A History of Farming Families in the Town of Floyd
by Sally Nemyier Tagliere

The town of Floyd had it's first settlers in the mid 1700's. There were still native Indians and wildlife we no longer see who lived in and near the area. There was no established monetary system as yet, so most trade was done in the form of bartering. The people had to glean their living out by farming, hunting, trading or any combination of these. What remarkable people they must have been to not only survive but to flourish under the rustic untamed conditions into which they had moved to. Some moved on to other towns and even to other states, but many of them stayed. They were the ancestors of many people who now live in or near Floyd. Some of the remaining descendants were kind enough to relate the histories of their families, and some of the descendants were too busy with work and life, or didn't have any information about ancestors. Records and legal documents are available, but not always accurate. These records, documents and family histories are all compiled to create the making of "Our Roots in Floyd"

Sally Nemyier Tagliere, a life long resident of Floyd, New York, has been the town of Floyd historian since 2017. Her first job as historian was to see that the work of the former town historian, the late Edwin Evans, was completed. This involved getting his history of Floyd published. Since that time she has devoted her work to the compiling of facts needed to write "Our Roots in Floyd. Sally and her husband, Richard live in the hamlet of Camroden, part of Floyd.
