I am a decendent of the Sugarland Florida family. Count Blanca Florida was a Count in Spain (Florence?) He and his family was ousted out of Spain because he was trying to take over the country.

They landed in Florida. There is a statue of him in Tallahasee Florida. From there they migtated to Sugarland GA. There was a plantation there that had 55 black slaves. Those slaves assumed the Florida name and migrated to South Carolina with the Florida family. You will find many headstones bearing white and black Floridas.

From Sugarland some traveled West to Texas (Greenwood)and one of those was my grandfather Thomas Florida. Robert Florida was his son and I am the daughter of Robert's son, Frank Martin FLorida. Frank had 7 children by his then wife Nellie Okla Wright-Florida.

We are
Frank Eugene Florida Longbeach CA
Yvonne Florida - Baker Keene, TX
Robert Thomas Florida Australia
Alvah Elsberry Florida Kileen, TX
Willie Kelly Florida Fort Worth, TX
Frances Kay Florida - McDonald Cleburne, TX

As soon as I get my geonolgy file loaded I will give it to you if you would like. Franmcdonald@juno.com
