    Henry Lloyd was said to have been born in 1709 in Wales, but this has not been confirmed. By 1744, he had immigrated to America with two brothers, David and John, and their father David, and settled in Frederick County, Virginia, where the elder David died in 1760.

    Henry Lloyd married Judith Pemberton, daughter of George Pemberton II & Elizabeth Brooks. Henry & Judith had 10 children: Ann, Mary, David, Elizabeth, Margaret, Judith, Henry Jr, Martha, John, & Thomas.

    In 1773, the Lloyds migrated to Bedford County, Pennsylvania, settling in the northern part of Woodcock Valley, in what later became Walker Township, Huntingdon County. Henry's house there was described in 1798 as a log house of two stories, with eight windows containing 72 lights (panes). (Taxes then were assessed, in part, on the number of window panes in your house.) The Lloyd house measured 18 by 23 feet; and there were two out buildings: a 16x18-foot kitchen and a 16x40-foot barn.

    The Lloyds were among the earliest settlers in that region. They brought their slaves with them from Virginia. In May 1774, Henry was appointed a Justice of the Peace in what was then Bedford County, Pennsylvania. The Lloyds were Baptists.

    Henry Lloyd died in 1802; his wife Judith died about 1814. They were buried on their own farm, which is no longer in the family. Geographically, the location is along Hartslog Valley Road, Huntingdon, PA. For many years, a large lilac bush bloomed each spring at the head of each grave. Descendant Richard W. Watson Jr. provided the photo here of the gravesite.

    Their slaves were buried in a separate burial ground on the Lloyd farm. The 1802 inventory of Henry Lloyd's estate names nine slaves and their value:
    One Negroe Man Named Jacob, value: 45 pounds
    One Negroe Woman Named Phillis, 6 pence
    One Negroe Man Named James & Leah his wife, 7 pounds, 10 shillings
    One Negroe Man Named Cupid to serve to 26 years, 95 pounds
    One Negroe Girl Named Sheley - Do (ditto), 30 pounds
    One Negroe Boy Named Championate - Do, 45 pounds
    One Negroe Boy Named Bob, - Do, 45 pounds
    One Negroe Girl Named Agness - Do, 30 pounds
