Lloyd along with his brother Richard enlisted on the Union side and both served in the 18th KY Vet Vol Infantry Co A. Other brothers including Beverly fought on the confederate side. Their father (Lloyd b.1796- d. after 1870) had owned slaves (at least 2 per 1830 census) but by 1840 no longer had any slaves in his household. It's my understanding that since Kentucky was a border state it isn't unusual to find families with sons who fought on opposite sides.
I was at the National Archives a few months ago and these are my notes taken from Lloyd's Military Service Record:
Private in Capt Mullins Co, 18th Regt Ky Inf. Co A.
Muster in at Paris Ky Feb 8 1862, age 26.
Joined for duty Oct 19 1861 Falmouth Ky-3 years.
Sept 16 1862 taken prisoner Pendleton Co and paroled. Missing since battle near Richmond Ky, Aug 30 1862
Nov Dec 1862 present on rolls
Jan-Feb 1863 sick in Pendleton Co KY.
Died in Pendleton Co Ky at his home on April 3 1863
Born in Bracken Co Ky 5 feet 6 inches, dark complex, black eyes, black hair, farmer
cause of death-typhoid fever
Brother Richard also enlisted on the same day in Oct 1861 for 3 years and was taken prisoner in Sept 1862 along with Lloyd. Richard deserted at Ft. Donelson Tenn on Feb 9 1863 and paid a fine of $30 for his apprehension in June 1863. He was honorably discharged in 1865 and later filed for a pension
If you havn't already checked you may want to see if pension benefits were ever claimed for his daughter. I'm pretty sure I looked for a pension file for Lloyd but didn't find anything. It's possible she was over 16 when the government decided to offer that benefit.
Let me know if you want any additonal info on Lloyd's parents.
