The Floods
Introduction: Memories of the Floods

My husband's family was for me a constant interesting kaleidoscope. Each and everyone of them had a strong colorful life with a variety about them of incredible difference yet; sameness. Though distance and separate lives kept me from knowing them well on a personal level I always felt a closeness to them.

At the time of this photograph, October 1965, from left to right this is:

Louise Flood Smith, Lima Peru
John Flood, Ponca City, Oklahoma (one of the twins, my husband, Rodney Lee Flood's father).
Sara Ann Henderson, Chula Vista, California
Dan Earl Flood, Tucson, Arizona
Sylvia Flood West, Norman, Oklahoma
George Flood, Durango, Colorado
Ross Flood, Stillwater, Oklahoma (the other twin)
Florence Flood, "Bobbie" Buttleman. Houston, Texas

This family was descendant of John Flood, and Anna Tierney Flood of the Isle of Wight, an island off the coast of England.

It is my wish to record what I know of the family in order to keep a history for my children, and grandchildren, who are Floods. Shamefully, I must admit to, not knowing a lot. Circumstances, distance in location, and working families didn't allow for much exchange. Once a year the family would get together, but it was these brothers and sisters. The children did not often attend. It always seemed a private time for the brothers and sisters to enjoy seeing each other and I didn't like to take away from that. Now I would be different in my thinking. It would have been wonderful to know more about them.

Mrs. Rodney Lee Flood, (Donna Jones Flood).
