  • Notes 
    • From the "The Southern Standard", Saturday, September 17, 1887:

      "Mrs. Nancy Byars, who had lived to an old age and had been a constant sufferer for a number of years, was released from her suffering here on Friday evening, Sept. 9th, 1887. She died in the faith, as she had for a number of years been a faithful member of the Baptist church, and while she is dead and her body confimed to the tomb, she yet speaketh, "Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord," yea sayeth the Spirit, they shall rest from their labors and their works shall follow them. She was the mother of a large family of children who are all grown. Some of them are in Texas and will in sadness listen to the story of the death of mother."
