I am seeking information on Charlie Byrd and Francis Byrd.
Charlie Byrd DOB 1846 Ga DOD unknown.
Francis Byrd DOB 1852 TX DOD unknown.
They may be listed under the following names Charles, Franki or Bird. Their race should be listed as black.
Their children are:
Henry Byrd 1865,
Sarah Byrd 1868,
Amanda or Mandy Byrd 1870,
Merchant Byrd 1873,
David Byrd 1874,
Tiny Byrd 1876,
Gilbert Byrd 1884.
I know that Sarah, Merchant, Gilbert moved to Oklahoma. Amanda stayed in Texas. I have found no additional information on Henry, David or Tiny. I have tried to track down the children to determine if they lived with any of the children.
They were living in Melroes Nacogdoches County Tx in 1880.
I believe Charlie remarried Sallie Pettis abt 1899 are listed together in the 1910 census in Nacogdoches County. Sallie is listed in the 1930 census living in Nacogdoches, Nacogdoches County Texas as widow. I have not found Sallie in the 1920 census.
I'm trying to find a date of death for Charlie and Francis Byrd. Also trying to find them in 1900 census.
I reason to believe that Francis was still alive and that they were still together in 1891. There is a Texas Civil Appeals case in Nacogdoches County that talked about a Charles and Francis Byrd and also mentioned a Henry Byrd. The case was Sarah Moore et al v Luther Swift and was decided 04/15/1902.
Any help would be appreciated with any members of this family.
