D.L. Byrd's mother was Agnes Jane Gaskin Byrd #58100064 who was born on 14 Feb 1829 near Lake City, Williamsburg Co., SC and died 4 May 1899 in Suwannee Co., FL. She's buried in Antioch Baptist Church Cemetery at Rixford. [There is some disagreement about her maiden name and birthdate. Some sources believe the name was Gaskins and her birthdate was 4 Mar 1829. My information is from her granddaughter, Inez Byrd Pipitone, who quoted the Agnes Jane Byrd Bible.]

His father was Capt. Andrew Jackson Byrd who was born on 12 Nov 1827 in Darlington, Darlington Co., SC and died on 8 Jul 1864 in Stuart Hospital, Richmond, Henrico Co., VA. I am still searching for his burial place. It was probably in the massive Confederate Mound at Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond. My information, again, is from Inez Byrd Pipitone who was the family genealogist of her day.

Andrew's nephew, Daniel Feninel McElveen #5073293, moved from SC after the War to Suwannee County to live with the widowed Agnes and help with the farm. He was like a brother to D.L. Byrd and his siblings. Agnes maintaned the farm and raised 5 of her children and 1 stepson to adulthood.
