Ben and Katie Lloyd

Circa 1880-90s

Before coming to Rumsey in the Capay Valley, they had a hotel in Oregon, seen here. Their daughter married and moved to the Guinda-Rumsey area and her family soon followed--father and mother and two brothers, both of whom would marry and start families in the Valley.

Benjamin Franklin Lloyd and Benjamin Franklin Cross arrived in the Capay Valley and through marriage became one big happy family--with a lot of Ben's! Benny Lloyd's family asked author Betsy Monroe to write about their Capay Valley family in the journal for The Greater Capay Valley Historical Society and to make them a family-history video for a Lloyd Family Celebration, honoring Benny Lloyd, who would have been 100 this year of 2014! Read the article in Volume 16 and an addendum in Volume 17; and enjoy the video!
