William BYLA Ribble
Birth: Feb. 2, 1870
Parker County
Texas, USA
Death: Jan. 29, 1875
Parker County
Texas, USA

William Byla Ribble (Byla) was born February 2, 1870 to Edd and Mary Frances Susan Baker Ribble in Parker County, Texas. His mother died on May 18, 1871 after giving birth to twins in April of 1871. The twins survived. Byla was a year and 3 months old when his mother died. He had a brother that was 2 years old and a sister that was 3 years old. So, his father had 4 children ages 3 and under. Edd lived next to his mother, so she and her younger children and Edd's older children helped him take care of the babies.

Around the latter part of 1874 to the early part of 1875 a rabid dog bit James, age 19, and his nephew, William Byla Ribble, age 4. The story goes that James saw Byla in trouble with the dog heading toward him. James tried to rescue Byla but both were bitten. The date they were bitten is not known yet they both died on January 29, 1875. They lived at the border of Hood County and Parker County. Byla's mother's family had lived in that area for years and many Baker's and buried there.
