    • Burgess Harrelson "Harrel" Byars (1779-1874), my 4th great grandfather (Dianne Armstrong)

      Harrel is the only listed Byars slave holder in 1860.

      1860 slave schedules:

      4 slaves: F52, M30, M26, F23

      The 52 yr. old I believe was Jude Byars and the 23 yr. old Nancy Byars her daughter.

      They last appear in 1880, Jude 72 and Nancy 39 in the home of Harrel's daughter Mary Byars Fuston.

      I have been able to trace them forward after 1880 or to identify the other 2.
