Notes for DANIEL BYERS:

Daniel Byers/Biers was a Revolutionary War Soldier. ( S.A.R. George Byers,

#84301, a great-great-great grandson, has proven this.)

The county given as the place of marriage of Daniel Byers/Biers and Margaret

(surname unknown at May, 1994) is Youghiogheny County, Virginia. This, in

1967, is now WASHINGTON COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA.

On Saturday, May 12th, 1984, there was a Commemorative Ceremony held at the old ANDERSON/BART ON Cemetery in Grayson County, some two miles east of Caneyville and north of Hwy 62. It wa s patriotic in nature, both civilian and military.

It touched on the history of "Grandfather Daniel and Grandmother Margaret, and on their issue ". It was put on by the Grayson County (KY) Historical Society to honor this REVOLUTIONARY W AR Soldier. There was a new and identifying gravestone unveiled. The historical society wa s also joined by the Leitchfield (KY) Chapter of D.A.R., and the American Legion Post 81, the re. (In my files I have very specific directions to this cemetery.) - V. Rhoades.

He was also an Indian fighter. He joined the Virginia Militia under Colonel

George Rogers Clark. (S.A.R. #84301, George Byers, a great3 grandson).

Some information about the Daniel Biers/Byers lineage comes from:

(1981-1984) Col. George Byers, USA (Ret.). In 1984 he lived at 3104 Corby

Blvd., South Bend, IN 46615.

One applicant for D.A.R. membership lists the following as the military record of DANIEL BIER S:

"Daniel (Byers) (Daniel Biers) served in the military forces as a Private in

Captain Daniel Hall's Company of Caintucky County Militia (Virginia), under

Col. George Rogers Clark, 1780, in the Ohio Campaign against the Shawnees, and as a Private i n Captain James Rodger's Company of Jefferson County Militia (Kentucky Territory or Judicia l District), under Major General George Rogers Clark, 1782, in his second Ohio Campaign. (Ph otocopies, pertinent papers, "Illinois Papers", Richmond, Virginia Library. Pay Rolls from V irginia State Library."

The date of his death is either: "circa 1818; or, after an 1805 deed." The

date of death of his wife, Margaret, is also given as "after 1805" so she must have been name d on the deed also.

Generation No. 2

 

2. THOMAS2 BYERS (DANIEL1) was born 1781 in ,Jefferson Co., KY, and died March 07, 1855. He married (1) SARAH BURTLES May 31, 1810 in ,Grayson Co., KY. She was born Abt. 1784 in ,St. Mary's Co., MD, and died Abt. 1848 in ,Pike Co., IN. He married (2) MARY BURTLES November 26, 1849 in ,Pike Co., IN. She was born February 14, 1789 in ,St. Mary's Co., Maryland, and died June 29, 1866 in ,Pike Co., IN.

Notes for THOMAS BYERS:

Thomas Byers and his wife, Sarah Burtle Byers, are the great-great grandparents

of BOTH Bessie Marie Rhoads and her husband, William Garland Byers.

Thomas Byers married a second time to Mary (Burtle) Corn, the widow of David

Corn, and a sister to his first wife, Sarah Burtle. They were married by

Tarnell Evans, J.P. of Pike County,IN. There were no children. (Mary Burtle

Corn had 15 children in her marriage to David Corn.

Thomas Byers was the son of a Revolutionary Soldier, DANIEL BYERS/BIERS.

There are two locations given for the marriage of Thomas Byers and Sarah Burtle

(May 31, 1810): Hardin Co., Ky and Grayson Co., KY. (Find my reference to

their marriage.)

Col. George Byers, Ph.D., S.A.R. #84301, (1893-1987), was a great-great grandson

of Thomas Byers (Thomas, James, Uriah, Geo. Wesley Byers). In 1967 he prepared

"The James Byers Biography", a three-page manuscript. In 1983 he sent a copy to

the daughter of Phyllis June Byers which was shared with me in May, 1994.

Because THOMAS BYERS is also the great-great grandfather of my husband, Albert

Nicholas Rhoades, and, because it locates this ancestor in various sites, I am

copying some selections from it here:

"James Byers was eldest child of THOMAS BYERS and SARAH BURTLE. The parents,

Thomas and Sarah, were married in Hardin Co., KY on May 31, 1810, probably in a

joint ceremony with her younger sister, Mary Burtle, and David Corn. James was

born in 1811 in Grayson County, KY, on the waters of Little Clifty Creek of the

Rough River system. (Note: Therefore, Thomas and Sarah lived there in 1811.)

Thomas Byers moved his family to Spencer County, Indiana in mid-1830 and is

recorded in the census there. His youngest child, Elizabeth, was an infant

then; but, she invariably shows her birthplace as Kentucky. Thomas Byers has

not (at 1967) been found in the 1820 census, nor has his crony David Corn, a

brother-in-law. Since all the children of Thomas Byers claim Kentucky as

birthplace, it is probable they were in Kentucky in 1820. It just could be

that they were in the Jackson Purchase, West of the Cumberland River, where

Thomas and David are known to have claimed land, and that they were not

enumerated because of that. At the time of their migration to Indiana, Thomas

and Sarah had six sons and four daughters. Our James was then nineteen.

(NOTE:My husband's great-great grandmother, MARGARET BYERS, who married Daniel

Kennedy WELLS, was the fifth child and was about eleven in mid-1830).

The earliest idntified Indiana home of the family was on land two miles south

of Friendship Church (of 1967) or two miles north of Chrisney, Indiana, and

three-quarters of a mile west, on the north side of the East-West road. The

tract is described as the West 1/2 of the SW 1/4, Section 35, Township 5 South

and Range 6 West, 80 acres. .....

David Corn, the uncle of James Byers, died in Pike County, Indiana in February

of 1844. He was husband of Mary Burtle, the sister of SARAH BURTLE BYERS. Sarah

was the wife of THOMAS BYERS and mother of James Byers. Another of the Burtle

sisters, Catharine, then lived in Pike County, the widow since about 1828 of

William Corn, who was an elder brother of David Corn. It is probable that the

death of David Corn, the famed hunter, in 1844, leaving the second Burtle

sister a widow in Pike County, led to the removal of SARAH BURTLE BYERS and her

THOMAS BYERS to Pike County, to concentrate there the Burtle relatives. THOMAS

BYERS wenat from a splendid farm in Spencer to only a productive hunting ground

in Pike County. This move seems to have occurred in 1845 or 1846. It must

have followed rather closely on David Corn's death, but THOMAS and James BYERS

both paid land taxes in Spencer County in 1846 on assessments of the year

before. James and Jane and their children accompanied his parents (THOMAS and

SARAH BURTLE BYERS) on the move to Pike County......

James' mother, SARAH BURTLE BYERS, died in Pike County in about 1848 and,

according to Uriah Byers, was laid to rest in Brewster Burying Ground believed

quite certainly to be present abandoned Brewster Branch Cemetery, some 1-3/4

miles due east of present Winslow.

In 1849, on the 26th November, THOMAS BYERS married second his widowed

sister-in-law, Mary Burtle Corn. They had known each other from youth, and

chose to share their last days. In the 1850 enumeration of Jefferson Township

they are living in the household of James and Jane (Rogers) Byers, but only

weeks later they are again enumerated in Monroe Township of Pike Co., with

Mary's son, David Corn, Junior.

On March 7, 1855, THOMAS BYERS died in Pike County, Indiana, widowing Mary

Burtle for the second time. Seen thereafter James Byers and his children moved

southward to the Judge Skelton neighborhood in Warrick County, once more

concentrating the several children of THOMAS BYERS and his SARAH BURTLE in the

general area of present Tennyson, Heilman, Gentryville, Indiana.

....In the 1860 census, Stanley Byers, 14, was working for ABRAHAM RHOADS in

Boon Township (Warrick Co., IN).... (Stanley was a son of James Byers; and,

Abraham Rhoads was the son of Daniel Rhoads and Sally Hudspeth Rhoads, my

husband's great-grandfather.)....". (End of quoting from the James Byers

Biography by Col. George Byers.)

Notes for SARAH BURTLES:

Sarah Burtle was the first wife of Thomas Byers. His second wife was Mary

(Burtle) Corn, the widow of David Corn, and a sister to Sarah Burtle. In fact,

Sarah Burtle married Thomas Byers on May 31, 1810 in Hardin County, KY and her

sister, Mary Burtle married David Corn on May 31, 1810 in Hardin County, KY.

It could have been a double ceremony! (Another source:m. Grayson Co.,KY).

Sarah Burtle and Thomas Byers are the great\great grandparents of BOTH Bessie

Marie Rhoads Byers and her husband, William Garland Byers.

In locating the marriage of Phoebe Evans to Jesse Wells (the parents of Daniel

Kennedy Wells who married Margaret Byers; Daniel Kennedy Wells married

Margaret Byers whose parents were Thomas Byers and Sarah Burtle) I found theEvans/Wells marri age in Washington County, Kentucky in 1809. Also listed were

the following:

Book 1, p. 73, 01 Feb 1806 WILLIAM BURTLES m. Sarah Ogden.

Book 1, p. 76, 16 Aug 1807 William Corn m. CATHERINE BURTLES (sister of

Sarah Burtle and Mary Burtle.)

Book 1, p. 184, 08 Oct 1819, JOSEPH BURTLES m. Eliza Mudd. Minister Jacob

Case.

NOTE: Observe the name has an "S" on the end in the Washington Co., KY

records.

Phoebe Evans Wells and Jesse Wells came to Spencer County, Indiana and Phoebe

Evans Wells in buried in Gentryville, Indiana.

I would like to research the possibility of all three families, Burtle, Wells

and Evans being in Washington County (Springfield), Kentucky. Maybe it would

give a clue to where they all came from.

Notes for MARY BURTLES:

Mary Burtle Corn and Thomas Byers had no children. She was a sister to his

first wife, Sarah Burtle. Thomas Byers was about 68 and Mary Burtle Corn was

60.

Mary Burtle Corn married David Corn on May 31, 1810 in Hardin Co., KY and she

bore him 15 children. On that same day, May 31, 1810, and in Hardin Co., KY,

her sister, Sarah Burtle married Thomas Byers. It could have been a double

ceremony!

She died at over 77 years of age at the home of her son, David Corn in Pike

Co., IN and is buried in the Corn Cem. which is in the Pike Co. Forest Reserve

in Pike Co., IN.

Notes for HUGH BYERS:

Data from a looseleaf notebook book "Pioneer Families of Pike and Warrick

Counties, IN, with ancestors and related families of Phillip Taylor"

that I found at the Petersburg, IN library on March 26, 1996, states that

Hugh Byers married Margaret Jane SIMPSON on Oct. 25, 1839 (place not

stated). Another source "Byers" file from the Vertical File of Family

Folders at the Public Library, Boonville, IN, compiled by Opal Phillips,

also says "Simpson". However, material put together by Col. George Byers

has a note: "No. 4 - Hugh Byers was married to Margaret Jane TENNYSON,

not Simpson, look at the marriage record books, please!".

4. MARGARET B.3 BYERS (THOMAS2, DANIEL1) was born March 16, 1816 in Elizabethtown, Hardin Co., KY, and died November 13, 1858 in ,Spencer Co., IN. She married DANIEL KENNEDY (KANADA) WELLS February 28, 1839 in ,Spencer Co., IN. He was born May 02, 1818 in ,Kentucky, and died November 20, 1904 in Pigeon Twp., Warrick Co., IN.

Notes for MARGARET B. BYERS:

Margaret B. Byers Wells was 31 years on the 1850 Census of Spencer Co., IN.

We believe that she died about 1856 or 1857; Rebecca, her last child was shown

as 4 years old on the 1860 census and Margaret Byers Wells was not on that

census. Daniel K. Wells married again in 1851 to a widow, Lovisa Oskins.

The family of my husband, Albert N. Rhoades, who is the great-grandson of

Margaret Byers Wells, told me that Daniel Wells and his first wife, Margaret

Byers had seven girls; and, that after she died he married a "widow Oskins" who

had seven boys by her first husband. There were no children from the second

marriage.

Notes for DANIEL KENNEDY (KANADA) WELLS:

Daniel K. Wells made bail bond for someone in 1873; see Index to Clerk's

Office Record, Warrick County, Indiana: 1873 - Entry #2133.

Daniel K. Wells had seven (7) daughters. When their mother, Margaret Byers

Wells died, he later married a widow, Lovisa Oskins (maiden name unknown) who

had (7) seven sons. (There were no children from their marriage.

Daniel K. Wells and Lovisa Oskins are buried at Twin Cemetery, Pigeon

Township, Warrick Co., In. I have a picture of their tombstones. (Virginia

Rhoades).

Spencer Co., IN records show a Lavinia Cooke marrying John M. Oskins on

Dec. 19, 1844 with consent given by Robert Oskins (his mark). Perhaps

this is the Lovisa/Lavicia/Lavinia Oskins that married Daniel K. Wells.

The information about there being the seven daughters and the seven sons are

from family knowledge from Clara Rhoads and Lorene Rhoads Scales, two of their

great-grandchildren.

The information about the spouses of two of the daughters, Solomon Stephens and

John A. Stephens (brothers) came from Louella J. Dyer, 13318 Blossomheath,

Dallas, TX 75240; (214) 239-2485 (1990).

The family also remembers that Daniel Kennedy Wells was called "the red-headed

Irishman". We have a very poor tintype picture of him. (Actually the Wells

family are of Welsh extraction).

The marriage of Daniel Wells and Margaret B. Byers is recorded in Book I, page

99, Spencer Co., Indiana. They were married by Robert Oskins, on Feb. 28,

1839.

The death of Daniel K. Wells on November 20, 1904, in Pigeon Township, Warrick

County, Indiana is recorded in Book H-20, page 73, Warrick County, Indiana,

aged 86.

Some researchers offer the middle name of Daniel Kennedy Wells as

"Kanada" rather than "Kennedy". The only thing that I can prove is"K".

Notes for REBECCA W. WELLS:

We think Rebecca was born about 1856 because she was 4 years old on the 1860

Census of Jackson Township, Spencer Co., IN. We believe that her mother died

about 1856 or 1857 because she was not on the 1860 census. Her father married again in 185 1 to a widow that had 7 boys.

The mother was buried at the Gentryville Christian Church Cemetery which was

moved to Garden of Memory at Gentryville, IN.

1885, page 217 has the following biography of Dr. Laban Jones.

"Laban M. Jones, M.D., was born in Spencer County, IN November 3, 1854, the

third son in a family of four children born to Dennis C. Jones and Tabitha

McCoy Jones, both natives of Indiana. Laban M. Jonesd received a good common

school education in youth, remaining at home and assisting on the farm until

his majority, when he entered the Evansville Commercial College, from which he

graduated with honor. He then read medicine eighteen months with Dr. Tarvis G.

Dailey, of Boonville, after which he took his preliminary course of lectures

at the Evansville Medical College, and after reading one year with his old

preceptor, entered the Pnysicians and Surgeons' School at Keokuk, Iowa, where

he graduated in 1880. After graduating he practiced his profession with

success one year in partnership with Dr. Allisoon Quiatt. He then purchased

property and located in Tennison, Warrick Co., Ind., where he was the FIRST

practicing physician. He was the FIRST Postmaster at Tennison, and in

partnership with his brother, George T. Jones, opened a grocery and dry goods

store for a time. In 1883 he was appointed depot and express agent, and

erecting a large building used it for a depot and also now (book written in

1885) uses it for his warehouse of farming implements and building material.

Dr. Jones was married May 29, 1879, to Miss Mary A. Byers, daughter of Uriah

and Elizabeth (Skelton) Byers, and this family of children were born to them:

Travis A. Jones, born April 1, 1880; Edwin E. Jones, born May 14, 1882; and

Cecil W. Jones, born May 26, 1884. He is a Republican, and he and wife belong

Notes for DANIEL BOONE RHOADS:

Daniel Boon(e) Rhoads was first married to Minerva McCool. Their marriage was March 27, 186 8 in Warrick County, Indiana. She was the daughter of John McCool and Mariah (maiden name un known). Her parents are buried in Baker Cemetery in Warrick County, Indiana. Minerva McCoo l was born on December 14, 1853 and was not quite 15 when she married. Their first child wa s Robert Eugene ("Bob") Rhoads who was born on March 3, 1869 in Warrick County, Indiana. Thei r second child was Minerva Jane Rhoads who was born on Jan 26, 1871 in Warrick County, Indian a. Minerva McCool Rhoads died February 3, 1871 just a few days after the little girl was bor n - she was buried near the graves of her mother and father at Baker Cemetery in Warrick Coun ty, Indiana. It states "17 years, 1 month and 16 days". The little girl, Minerva Jane Rhoad s lived about six months - June 25, 1871 and she is buried beside her mother at Baker Cemeter y. (Daniel Boone Rhoads's parents, Daniel Rhoads and Sally Hudspeth Rhoads are also buried a t Baker Cemetery.

After Minerva McCool Rhoads died in February 1871 (leaving an infant who lived 5 months and " Bob" who was almost two years old) the sister of Minerva McCool Rhoads took care of these chi ldren until the baby girl died in June at 5 months old and until Daniel Boone Rhoads marrie d Hannah Delilah Wells in August, 1871. Daniel Boone Rhoads's mother, Sally Hudspeth Rhoads h ad died the year before.

This sister of Minerva McCool Rhoads was "Aunt Pine Hausselmier". My husband

and his sister, Clara Rhoads, remembers their father speaking of "Aunt Pine"

and that the family visited...and that she was just as much their "Aunt" as if she were bloo d kin.

Daniel Boon Rhoads was guardian of #13, Thomas Albert Rhoads and possibly of

#14, Lillie Jane Rhoads (Condit). Their mother (Sally Hudspeth Rhoads)

died in 1870 when they were 8 and 11; and their father (Daniel Rhoads) died in 1873, when the y were 11 and 14. At the time of the father's death, Daniel Boone Rhoads was 29 and married t o his second wife, Hannah Delilah Wells.

The marriage of Daniel B. Rhoads and Hannah Delilah Wells is recorded in Book

4, Page 409, Warrick County, Indiana on August 31, 1871.

The death of Daniel B. Rhoads on Jan.11, 1903, Pigeon Township, Warrick Co.,

Indiana, is recorded in Book H-20 - 50, Warrick County, Indiana. I have an

original copy of his funeral card and it states: "D.B. Rhoads died Jan. 11,

1903, aged 58 years, 5 months, 19 days".

The mother of Daniel BOONE "D.B." Rhoads, Sarah Sally Hudspeth Rhoads, wass the daughter o f Thomas Hudspeth and Susanna BOONE. Susannah Boone was the cousin of Ratliff Boone. Ratlif f Boone was prominent in the development ofthe Boonville area. I saw a note by one researche r that Susanna was "the first cousin of Daniel Boone. This CANNOT be true because there woul d have been 57 years difference in their ages!. At April, 1995, I have not had time to resear ch the Susanna Boone line that were ancestors of this grandfather of

Albert Nicholas Rhoades.
