RE: William Russell Byrd and Effie Lucinda Byrd Thomas
My intention when I first got on findagrave was to see if I could find out where some of my ancestors were buried and their birth and death dates. After being on it for awhile I realized just how much other people might like to know what I knew. After going thru my mom's "stuff" and finding all kinds of pictures, I decided to use the findagrave website to post memorials and pictures of everyone I could. (I believe every one deserves this much respect.) Some of them already had memorials but no pictures so I posted the pics to their memorials and tried to link the families. It took many hours to do this but I enjoyed every minute. I am glad that you found my info helpful. By the way, I believe that I have a copy of their marriage license. I think I have a copy of Effie's and Sam Thomas's marriage license, too. If you are interested, I could email them to you. Oh yeah, Parlie was a hoot!!! And yes, she was married 3 times I think. Loma did have a son who was killed in a plane crash and a daughter. I believe the daughter died several years before Loma.

RE: William Russell Byrd and Effie Lucinda Byrd Thomas

I am glad to "meet" you. I never met either Russell or Effie (at least not that I remember)even though they were my dad's paternal uncle and materal aunt. That's right--Russell was my Pappaw Byrd's brother and Effie was Mammaw Byrd's sister. They had 2 daughters that I did know--Parlie and Loma. In case you don't know this, I think Parlie died in 2001 and Loma died about 3-4 years ago. Write back and fill me in on how you and yours fit in. My email address is
