Birth: Feb. 11, 1828
Kentucky, USA
Death: May 21, 1916
Macon County
Missouri, USA

Alford Taylor Lyles's death certificate does not give a clear understanding of who his parents were. It states his father was Unknown Lyles and his mother was M. Sarver. However, it is known by some that his parents were Thomas Hillary Lyles (1798-1878) who was born in Loudoun County, Virginia and died in Allen County, Kentucky; and Margaret L. (Sarver) Lyles (1799-1876) who was born in Botetaurt County, Virginia and died in Allen County, Kentucky.

Alfred had the following known siblings:

James Manasseh Lyles 1817 1914
William Wesley Lyles 1819 1893
Caroline Lyles 1823 1855
John Hillary Lyles 1825 1877
Thomas Burrus Lyles 1830 1908
Fountain G Lyles 1832 1862
Wyatt Elvis Lyles 1835 1878
Quinton Newton Lyles 1837 1923
Mary C. Lyles 1840 1918

Although Alfred's parents and several of his siblings remained in Allen County, Kentucky the rest of their lives, Alfred and a few of his siblings ventured elsewhere. Alfred, however, is the only one who moved west to Illinois and then to Missouri. By the age of 25, Alfred was in Illinois where he married Mary Frances Young (1836-1898) in Montgomery County, Illinois in 1854. She was also a Kentucky native. They had the following known children:

Margaret Lyles 1855
Keturah (Lyles) Vestal 1856-1938
Ann Lyles 1859-
Wesley Douglas Lyles 1861 1936
Enoch Newton Lyles 1863
Ella Lyles 1865
Emma Taylor (Lyles) Landree 1867 1953
Mary F. Lyles 1876

Their first 6 children were born in Illinois, and the last two in Missouri. They were pioneer farmers in Macon County, Missouri. The 1880 census is the last in which Mary Frances is listed. She died on July 8, 1898. In the 1900 census of Macon County, Alfred was living alone. He died in 1916. Both are buried in Hebron Cemetery.
