Seeking information on Nanty Glo's
Lloyds of Lloyd Street

Letter No. 154 | January 3, 2000        

Do you know who Lloyd Street was named after? Is there an 1890 or a 1900 Census for Nanty Glo?

My g-grandfather was from there, Henry L. Lloyd. He left there between 1900 to 1909. He bought a sawmill in Nelson County, Va., in 1909. Henry's oldest son, Samuel A. Lloyd, was born there in 1883; he was my grandfather.

Any help on any Lloyds from Nanty Glo would greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Leroy Ayers, Jr.

Webmaster's note: In answer to your questions about the censuses, see the Brief of History of Nanty Glo in this Forum. Nanty Glo did not exist, as such, in either 1890 or 1900 (coming into existance in 1901). The censuses for those decades would take in those residences that later were in Nanty Glo were those of Blacklick and Jackson Townships. I'm hoping some the answers to your question about the namesake of Nanty Glo's Lloyd Street will be forthcoming from other readers. I do know there was a Samuel Lloyd resident in Blacklick Township (near intersection of now Route 271 on Red Mill Road), when I lived near there in the 1950's and 1960's. —Jon Kennedy
