Looking for the parents of William Emmitt Byrd. My gggrandfather was William Emmett Byrd born in Va (Grayson or Carroll CO)1852 d.1928 and migrated to NC (Wilkes CO,NC)said to have married Caroline Brown and Emiline Watkins. Some brothers were George, Solomon, Avery, Evin(sp?),Earl and Manley, there may be more and sisters.
Earl had a son named Manley Garfield Byrd
Children of Wm Byrd and Caroline Brown were:
Lewis McClellan Byrd b. (ggrandpa)1882 d.1913 m, Clara Belle Chambers,
John A. Byrd b. 1876 m. Ellen Gregory,
Walter Macon m. Celia Wood,
Moore m. Allie Ayers,
William Earl b. 1901m. Etta Watkins,
Fonzie Byrd (F) m. Abraham Yale,
Wadie Consadie (Shug) Byrd b. 1901 m. Dr. Frank Byrd
Mary Elizabeth Byrd b. 1876 m. William Payton Byrd.
The last two suggest there may have been Byrds established already in Wilkes Co possibly cousins.
I may be interested in the Byrd lines you can email me at Thanks, David McClellan Byrd
