Alexandra, My Great-Grandfather (Jefferson Henry Hyams) and your Great-Great-Grandmother (Katherine) were brother and sister. Katherine was the only daughter of Mordecai Elisha Hyams and Caroline Frederica Hyams. The had 7 children. Washington, John, Jefferson, Katherine, George, Charlie, Fred. My parents who live in Charlotte, N.C. have pictures of all 7 children and Mordecai and Caroline. Mordecai was born in Charleston, S.C. in 1819. Caroline was born in Wurtemburg, Germany in 1829. We do not know how they met but they were married in Florida. During the Civil War Mordecai was stationed in North Carolina and remained there after the war. Mordecai died in 1891 in Statesville, N.C. and Caroline died in Old Fort, N.C. in 1911. She lived with her son George Hyams in her last years. They are buried in Statesville, N.C. My parents have pictures of Katherine and Mr. Herring. They also have a picuture of Gertrude Herring as a child 3-4 years old. Katherine looked like her father Mordecai. Our family tree from Jefferson Henry Hyams is fairly short. Jefferson Married Margaret Penland Hyams. They had 3 children, Mabel, (1880) Homer (1886)and Robert (1892) Robert was the only one who had a child. Robert Henry Hyams married Claudia Suddreth Hyams They had one child my father Robert Penland Hyams. (1925) Robert Penland Hyams married Evelyn Silver Hyams They had 3 children Susan (1952) Robert Jr.(1954) and Claudia Ann (1961) I am Robert Jr. Mordecai kept a scrap book and we have many newspaper articles on him and his family. We knew that Katherine had remarried and moved to Virginia, but that is where the trail ended. It would be great to trace her family forward. Please let me know, I Know my parents would love to hear from you as would I. I can get you there E-mail address We think Mordecai's parents were Solomon M Hyams and Katherine ? Hyams. Sorry I forgot Katherine's maiden name We always thought Your Katherine was named after her grandmother. Look forward to hearing from You. Your Cousin Robert Hyams
