Floyd Coldiron was b. 1 Jun 1894, Indianola, Vermilion Co., IN. He died 22 Mar 1969 and is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, Dayton, Montgomery Co., OH.

Floyd was s/o John L. Coldiron and Margaret Davis. John and Margaret raised their family in Garrard Co., KY.

The 1900 and 1910 census of John and Margaret's family gives Floyd's birth place as KY. However, in the 1920 census of Floyd's family, he gives his birth place as IL. Other family members have also reported Floyd was born in Indianola, IL. I cannot account for why his parents would report a KY birth place.

Floyd married Sallie Louise White, 30 May 1917, Richmond, Madison Co., KY. Sallie b. 1901, Madison Co., KY, d/o William White and Catherine Thodus. Floyd and Sallie had one child: Caroline T. Coldiron, b. 28 Apr 1918, Madison Co., KY and died 18 Dec 2001, Cincinnati, Hamilton Co., OH. Caroline married Mr. Langland.

MILITARY Floyd reports in his WW I Draft Registration Card (dated 2 Jun 1917) that he was born in Indianala, IL. His occupation Nurse. Medium height and build. Dark brown eyes and dark hair.

OBIT Dayton Daily News, 25 Mar 1969 Floyd Coldiron, age 74, of 214 Green St. dieed Saturday. He was formerly employed Plant #1, Frigidaire. Veteran of WW I, member of Presbyterian Church of Kentucky. He was a life member of Disabled American Veterans.

That's all I have on Floyd, but I have much more on his ancestors, back to the early 1600's in Germany.

If you have additional information about Caroline Coldiron's family, I would like to add it to my database. Thanks.

Otto G. Coldiron
