I hope I explained my error in the followup above.
The book says Jonas Byars md Francis Collins and they had at least two children. #1. William Byars md Elizabeth Bedford, daughter of Jonas Bedford and Amasa "Mercy" Raymond. #2. Henrietta Byars, who married Joel Blackwell. "They had at least one child" Mary Blackwell who married Richard Arnold. She did not get into the other marriages of Joel Blackwell. She listed 13 children for Henrietta Byars and Joel Blackwell and said there was possibly one or two more.
I would not want to get into copying things out of the book. I live 7 miles from town and my husband has cancer, and I don't leave him, except for necessities. The book is 185 pages. Please see my answer above. This is not my Byars line. My line is from Nathan Byars and Drucilla Harrelson. I was just trying to help, since I have the book. I am sorry about the confusion. cbh
