Thanks so much, Vicky! I appreciate you adding her!!

I would be glad to manage them in order to share the load but am not territorial. You have kindly added much of my family. I am the granddaughter of Rev. Clarence E Chapman and Jamie Wyatt and also Paul K Johnson and Jeanette Lora Runion.

Hi Vicki,

Thanks for all you do! Sue LeMaster Chapman is the daughter of this profile and spouse. She is buried in same cemetery, date of death 28 Oct 2016. I have not found a memorial for her and would add it myself but don't have date of birth. I just have what is in the obit. She was married to my (still living) cousin Glenn Chapman. If you go out that way could you please check and either add Memorial or send me date of birth?

Joseph Abraham Rusg
I recently viewed the Find A Grave memorial you created forJoseph Abraham Rush (memorial #4100038). You have linked him to his first wife (Elizabeth) and you cited his second wife (Sarah Ann Huffman) in his bio.
Sarah Ann is a sister to my gg-gf, John Huffman.
Sarah Ann is also a sister to Catherine Mary Huffman who married Phillip Rush (brother of Joseph Abraham Rush.)
I cannot find a memorial for Sarah Ann. Her death certificate mentions a "Beaulah" burial, but there is no such name in Beaulah Cemetery. Have you any ideas where she may be buried?
I just today linked, Phillip Rush to his father Abraham, but I can find no burial for his wife, Lidia (mother of Phillip and Joseph A.
How are you related to the Rush family?
I look forward to hearing from you.

Vicki, After looking at that 1880 census again very closely, the index shows that Sarah Wilson age 68 was in the household of Lafayett and Mintie Byers in dwelling 213. Looking at the actual census Sarah Wilson is in dwelling 212, with her son Doctor Miller Wilson age 31 and his son Columbus age 1. It might just be coincidence that they are living close to each other. What makes me think the Byers/Byars family has connection to the Wilson's is the 1870 census listed below. Micager Byers has to be connected someway?

The 1870 Rutherford Co., NC Census, Cool Springs Township, Moorsboro P.O., Series M593, Roll 1159, page 46a, dwelling 71, family 71, lines 20-25, enumerated 27 July 1870
Robert Wilson, age 62, farming
Sarah Wilson, age 59,  keeping house
Doctor M. Wilson, age 22, keeping house
Nancy Wilson, age 20, at home
Wiley B. Wilson, age 15, at school
Micager Byers, male, age 10, at school

Sorry for my mistake in the other posting. I hope someday to get my mess straight! Your help appreciated-Dwight

Randolph Oliver Byars
Hello Vicki, I'm wondering if you might have family relations to Randolph Oliver Byars, Find A Grave memorial #35262371 that you created? He is list on the 1910 Spartanburg Census with Fabe D. Byars, age 63, born NC, Mother born NC, Father born NC. Fabe's wife is listed as Martha L. Byars, age 63, born NC, Mother NC, Father NC. Married 43 years. Randolph O. Byars, age 19, is listed as grandson, born SC, Mother NC, Father SC. Also in the household is John P. Byars, son, age 33, born NC, Mother NC, Father NC.

On the 1900 Spartanburg Census the BYARS family was enumerated as BYERDZ. Lafayette Byerdz, age 52, born NC, spouse, Menttia Byerdz, age 53, born NC, Mary A. Byerdz, daughter, age 31, born NC. John P. Byerdz, son, age 23, born NC. Lessie Byerdz, dau., age 16, born NC. Randolph O. Byerdz, grandson, age 9, born SC. Florence A. Byerdz, granddaughter, age 6, born SC.  

I think Menttia in this 1900 census might have been a Wilson. On the 1800 Cool Springs, Rutherford CO., NC Census my fourth great grandmother, Sarah Harrill Wilson, age 68, widowed is listed as mother in household with Mintie Byers, age 33. Lafayett Byers, age 32, William Byers, age 11. Mary Byers, age 10. Geneva Byers, age 8. John Byers, age 4 and Lillie Byers, age 1. 

Sarah Harrill Wilson was married to Robert H. Wilson my fourth great grandparents. I hope that you are connected to these folks and might be able to add something to what I have here. Any help appreciated and May God Bless you. Thanks-Dwight Crowe
