Surnames: BYERS, PRICHARD, ROBERTSON, WHITE
Pertains to the family of Moses A. BYERS, (August 08, 1824 TN - May 12, 1898 Wilson Co TN)- I am sending it because the PRICHARD, WHITE, & ROBERTSON families all had members move from middle TN to the area in TX you mention and were intermarried with BYERS.

Lucretia PRICHARD, (b. Dec 16, 1832 in Wilson Co., TN. died Unknown) was daughter of Benjamin PRICHARD (April 16, 1792 VA to Aug 3, 1872 Wilson Co TN). He came to the portion of Tennessee now known as De Kalb County in 1808 and died of rheumatism per Goodspeed's History. Benjamin married in Wilson County, TN, on July 15, 1816, to Mary Ann (Polly) CAMPBELL (March 10, 1796 KY to Dec 5, 1869 (daughter of James CAMPBELL born 1766 IRE -1826 Wilson Co TN per Goodspeed's history) [Note: Census says she was born KY, other sources say TN]. The couple had eight children per Goodspeed's history. The youngest was Lucretia PRICHARD (1832 TN).
Lucretia married Moses A. BYERS, (August 08, 1824 TN - May 12, 1898 Wilson Co TN) on m. April 10, 1848 in Wilson Co., TN. Moses was listed on census as a minister (I looked at the microfilm myself - it is hard to read, but the word is not 'teamster' as reported by several other sources. The DeKalb Co newspaper 'Liberty Herald' notes him preaching in various Methodist congregations in the 1880's as collateral evidence)
Only known child of Lucretia PRICHARD & Moses A BYERS at this time:
Sarah A. BYERS May 7,1850 to Nov 30,1867. Sarah married Charles L.ROBERTSON (~1840 VA)about 1866.
These are twins born to Sarah A. BYERS ROBERTSON seven days before she died at age 17
a) Sarah Laura ROBERTSON (Nov 23, 1867 to May 30, 1882)
b) Martha Flaura ROBERTSON (Nov 23, 1867 to Aug 26, 1896)

Martha Flaura ROBERTSON (1867 TN) married James Henry WHITE (1869 Warren Co TN - 1964 Davidson Co TN) before 1892 and had the following children:
a) Valeira WHITE: born 9/5/1892 at Henderson Crossroad / Norene TN, married to Hubert MAYO (8 Jun 1889- Sep 1964) from Watertown, TN about 1914, lived most of adult life in Orlando, FL, died 9/27/1971 in Orlando FL and is buried at Greenwood Cemetery there.
b) Freddie WHITE: Died May 9, 1894 Aged 9 days, buried in Prichard-Robertson Cemetery in Norene, TN (Wilson Co)
c) Flaura WHITE: born 8/13/1896 at Henderson Crossroad / Norene TN, married to Joseph Samuel GREEN on 11/17/1918 at Faulkner Chapel in Warren Co TN, lived entire adult life on the farm owed originally by her paternal grandfather, Wm WHITE, in the Faulkner Springs community in Warren Co. TN. She died in 1981 in Hamilton Co, Chattanooga TN where one of her daughter's lives. She is buried at Smartt Cemetery in Warren Co TN. (This is my maternal grandmother)

James Henry WHITE remarried 3 times after Flaura ROBERTSON died. His second marriage was to Margaret TASSEY of Gassaway TN. They had three daughters. Margaret died about 1931 and he married a widow named Dot SMALLWOOD. After Dot's death, he married a much younger woman, Crystal HATHAWAY, who was living in the Orlando FL area at the time of the marriage.
