Hey DS.

Whatcahdoin? Sorry. Had to sneeze there. Again. Whatcha doin'?

Got connected to this site some nites ago looking for Pauline Byrum, my supposed mother. No answer yet and it's been some time since I posted a note. Maybe she doesn't exist. Oh well.

What makes you think that there are some extra folk that are related to Grandpa or Vier or Gabriel. Do you think someone might have been adoped? I thought that Harriet, or Myrtle or Gene or your Mom had pretty much substantuated all the folks on the Ryen side. Do you think someone is missing?

ON A PERSONAL NOTE: Please send your e=mail address to so I don't have to go to this site to gab with ya.

Sorry I can't help with Vier or Gabriel but have you seen the site that lays out family trees. I'll try to look it up for you if you don't have it. I check the Byrum familyt tree's but it seems that all the Byrum men had mainly female children and the name never carried forward. It seems that Byrum's got cut off in the 1700's and them restarted in the late 1800's but that ended with a Reverend Byrum who had all girls. How I came about seems to be more and more a lie (or mystery). But then what else is new.

How could I be a Byrum if my mother had that name as her maiden name. And if it was her married name how the _____ did my father come about; as the tree stopped with the Reverend????? And that would have been long before my father would have been born. Unless, of course, he would have been in his 90's or 100's by the time I was born. Humph!

No I'm not nuts. Nothing about my existance makes any sense at all. Names don't match. Stories don't make sense. There's not one Aunt or Uncle or even those very closely connected - sic,sic - to my adoption whose story matches. Anway this doesn't address your request.

I just wanted to say --- "I Found You". How was I supposed to know that you were tapping away in Cyberspace??? Well, it's about 3:30 California time - AM that is - so I'll say good bye.

Hope you find what you're looking for.

Your cuz = Tommyc
