BYERS, Will

SHEPHERDSTOWN -   By a strange coincidence, the large pyramidal Norway pine, planted by Mr Will Byers thrifty-five years ago at Valley Rest, near town, withered and died the last fall season at the same time he passed away. This tree had been his special pride, and often he recounted that he had planted and taken care of it. Its decay and removal takes away one of the finest ornaments of that country place. -Shepherdstown Register

BYRD, William

The many friends and acquaintances of William Byrd were startled yesterday morning to hear of his death at the Baptist Sanitarium in St. Louis. He had been under treatment for several weeks suffering from ear trouble and on last Saturday a mastoid operation was performed after which he never regained consciousness and grew steadily worse until his death at 11:30 Tuesday night. His son Will, of Carriza Springs, Texas, was with him during the last few days of his illness. Mr. Byrd was a member of a large and influential family among the pioneers of Cape Girardeau County. He was born in Byrd township on May 11, 1845, and had therefore passed his 79th milestone. He grew to manhood on his father's farm in the township that bears his family name. He enlisted in the Confederate army in June 1863 as a member of Jefrey's Eighth Missouri Cavalry in Marmaduke's old brigade where he served until October 1864. On November 21, 1867, he was united in marriage with Mary J. Evans, daughter of J.R. and Catherine Evans, who survives him. Soon after marriage, they located on a farm on Byrd's Creek where they remained until moving to Jackson some thirty years ago. Mr. and Mrs. Byrd had a family of nine children, three of whom survive: Edward R., Charles William, and Stephen, all of whom reside in Texas.  The deceased was a son of Stephen and N. Isabella Moore Byrd. By thrift and saving, he managed to amass a goodly portion of this world's goods. He was a member of the Methodist church and leaves a host of friends and relatives to mourn his death. The body was brought to Jackson yesterday afternoon. The funeral services will be held at the Methodist Church on Friday afternoon at 2:30 P.M.


The following is the genealogy and history of the Byrd family of Cape Girardeau County:
*Andrew Byrd, of English descent, lived in North Carolina the early part of the eighteenth century
*Amos Byrd, son of Andrew Byrd, was born in North Carolina in 1737, married a Miss Ruddle, moved from North Carolina to Virginia in January 1773, thence to Tennessee within six miles of Knoxville on the Holsten River, where he reared to maturity five sons and three daughters, viz: Stephen, John, Abraham, Amos, Moses, Mary, Clara and Sallie. He, with his sons and daughters and their families, moved to Missouri, landing at Cape Girardeau in the fall of 1799. Amos, Sr., died June 5, 1818, and was buried on the Penny or Byrd farm, six miles west of Cape Girardeau, by the side of his wife who had preceded him.
