Edward and his daughter Abigail suffered greater Revolutionary War hardships than perhaps other members of the Byram family. Their experiences in being taken a prisoner by the Indians is all related in the book "Abby Byram and Her Father, The Indian Captives" by John M. McElroy D.D. 1898.

Edward and Abby were captured 07 April 1779. They were taken to the British at Ft. Niagara. In 1780 they were moved to Montreal, Quebec and then to a prison in Chambly on the Sorel River. In the spring of 1781 they were released as a part of a prisoner exchange. Edward was placed in charge of leading the prisoners to the Colonial Army. This proved to be a serious and difficult undertaking as many were elderly and invalid. He reached his home just before the surrender of Yorktown and found himself mourned as dead. Edward is also found in the Patriot Index, Centennial Edition listed as a private in the Pennsylvania Army, and he is on the prison list for Fort Niagara in Haldiman papers.)

Those are of New Jersey became rather impoverished, which may be the reason Edward and his family moved to Lyons Run, Pa.

After Phoebe died, Edward went to Bourbon Co., Kentucky where he married FANNY BROWN and after a few years moved to Highland County, Ohio. He followed his son, Edward Jr., to Ohio where he remarried. Edward and Fanny were members of the Rock Springs Presbyterian Church.
