Byron B Barkdoll was born September 30, 1872 at Stryker, Ohio and moved with his parents that same year to Nebraska and settled near Meadow Grove. Soon his parents moved to the St Clair Valley in Antelope County where he grew to manhood. He received his education in the pioneer school at that time. On July 5, 1892 he married Jenny Ann Childs. She was born at Wells, Minnesota and had moved with her parents to Humphrey, Nebraska where they lived several years. Her parents then homesteaded in St Clair Valley northwest of Tilden. This place is known now as the old Anton Spiekermann farm. After their marriage, they lived most of their early life one mile west and on the north side of the road of the Bunker Hill School. One year the family left Nebraska and moved to Granville, North Dakota which is a wheat growing area. Byron and the boys went by covered wagon, leading several horses. His wife and girls made the trip by train. Due to complete crop failure they returned to their original farm. After semi-retirement in Tilden, he operated a dairy for some time. He sold the dairy and became Tilden's night marshal which he was doing when he became ill. He died in September 1938 of cancer.
