1900 Census has a Lula McInvale Coleman, b. apr 1877
She married in Monroe County in 1894. In wondering if she might be a sister to Masie McInvale, I looked up her and found that 1900 census listed Martha McInvale as a widow living with her daughter, Lula. It indicated she was born in Alabama.

Masie McInvale was born (according to my records) Feb. 7, 1880. The 1880 census taken in starlington, beat 1, Butler County, AL, enumerated in June 1880, lists a Sula Mackinvale (I believe this should be Lula) and a Mason L. Mackinvale--w, f, 3/12 (born in March) I believe some of this to be incorrectly recorded by the enumerator. It could also be that Masie is a nickname.

I can't find any other info on Masie. Oh..I also have recorded that she is buried at Shiloh cemetery in Frisco City. Next time I go home, I am planning on checking that out.

James W. Byrd was my husband's great grandfather. Masie McInvale was his first wife. My mother-in-law remembers his second wife Martha Wright (marriage 1906) as "Granny". She had no children, but cared for James "Burney" (30 Jun 1897-15 Oct 1938) and Mattie (1900) as hers. I believe Masie might possibly have died in childbirth.

b. 12 Mar 1840
d. 13 Oct 1939, buried at Mt. Pisgah Primitive Baptist Church in Frisco City.

His father was Isaac Britt Byrd (24 Dec 1845-4 Oct 1914) who was the first person buried in Mt. Pisgah (I am not positive of this, but have it from a reliable source).
