MORE ON LEROY BYRD

spelled Lee Roy...
He was born in Bedias, TX in 1876...died in 1923...buried in LeFlore County, Oklahoma in town of Poteau...buried in a cemetery next to dick miller's funeral home...
He spent time in Louisiana State Prison somewhere between 1900 and 1923...family says committed murder, as did his son, frank...i don't know if this is the same crime committed together or not...but granny was born in 1904 in Texas so I believe the crime was committed after that...family says that they left Oklahoma on a Wagon train and the crime was commited en route to Louisiana...I'm not sure where it happened...
i recently found Leroy's mother to be Martha Jane Randall...daughter of Allen J. Randall b. ca 1815 and Sarah A. Massey b. ca 1816...both in MS...according to census records and what i found on the web...both their fathers were fro NC and both mothers fromTN...they were in MS in 1836 to AL to MS to AL then to Caldwell parish, LA by 1850, to Bowie County Texas by 1860, then to Grimes County, TX.. their children:
