I eventually found Sextus and I'm the one who posted the photos and connected him to his parents and children. I'm glad you posted, though. I would definately like to talk to you about your wife's relationship to him. My great-grandmother was his half sister which means your wife and my dad are/were 3rd cousins. Who is your wife's grandfather? From what I can tell, it would most likely be Lewis Henry Byer as Sextus' brother John had no children, his brother Henry didn't have any children (as far as I know), and his brother Jacob only had a daughter. If we can chat sometime, I would really appreciate it. I've got quite a bit of Lewis' branch done but I need someone to confirm and correct it. Let me know what you think. Thanks for your response and time.
