Steve, I'm know we have talked about Myrows before, but for the benefit of this board and its readers, I want to post a reply and ask if you have found anything more on the Myrows. Actually the James you speak of never spelled his name Myrow that I can see. His sons began spelling it Myrow. James was usually Miro or Myra, and one time a census said he was born in Arkansas, but only one. Martha Ann was an Owen, daughter of William and Elizabeth from Tennessee.

I have recently found a land transaction from a James R. Miro to the heirs of J. Miro in Red River Co., Texas, in 1870, involving 4000+ acres. I don't see how this could be our James Miro as he was dirt-poor, his family listed as indigent, and never owned land that I could see. But I will have to see if there is a possible connection as the name was so rare before 1880. It is within traveling distance of me, so I will let you know what I find. Please let me know if you has discovered anything. Any little hint would be welcome in this frustrating line. Thanks! -Donna
