Theophilus Byron, who called himself James, was the son of John Byron and Clarissa Agatha Dremarest, and the brother of my great-grandmother Philmen (Byron) Little. He served during the civil war in Company G of the 5th New York Calvary. He was raised in Oswego, NY, and for occupation was a cooper. About 1868 he removed to Saginaw MI, where he lived at a boarding house run by his sister Philomen and her Husband John Little. In 1870 James and John Little, together, purchased 160 aces on 2 sides of Vernon Road, the border line between Isabella and Vernon twp. Isabella Co. In 1876 he returned, temporarily, to Oswego where he married Emma Dubois and they returned to live in Isabella Co. They had 4 children, Fredrick, Maude, Ida, and Francis. Emma died giving birth to Francis. In 1889 James remarried to Elenora Laroque, who died in 1901. In 1903 he entered the Old Soldiers Home in Grand Rapids, MI, where he died and is buried.
