My Great Grandfather, John Henry Byers, was born in Pennsylvania Dutch Country Feb 22, 1799. He moved to Morgan (Noble) County, Ohio as a youth, married (unkown) and had eleven children. He married for the second time in 1838 to Elizabeth Beatty and had nine more children. In 1863 he moved to Bartholomew County, Indiana, and in 1865 to Starke County, Indiana. One son, William was killed in the Civil war as a union private . Another son, Joseph A. Byers, (b-1854), was my grandfather. My GF lived in and around Knox, Starke County, Indiana all of his life, taking care of John Henry and Elizabeth as they grew older. He eventually became a carriage/hardware dealer in Knox and died in 1914, being buried there along with most of his immediate family. Elizabeth A. Byers, one of his daughters, married William Lawrence in 1871 and had four children, dying in childbirth with the fourth child. I am interested in locating anyone who knows what has happened to the rest of the family. Jim Byers
