The Byrer/Norris/Kilgore Family of Indiana

Updated April 12, 2013

Welcome! My name is Kris and I have been searching my ancesters since summer of 1999. My Grandmother Nellie Byrer-Norris (1918-2013) got me interested in my family heritage by the many stories she has told me through the years of her family life in Southwest Indiana.

Here is a sample of the surnames included in the tree:
BEYRER- Poppenweiler,Wurttemburg,DEU
BYRER - Wittenburg,Sachsen,Preussen (Now DEU)
FETZER- Rohenacker,DEU
KILGORE- Kilgory,Clare,Eire (Ireland)
MALLETT- Normandy, France
RIFFEY- Named after occupation called "Riffers", Europe origins
SCHLECHTER- Poppenweiler,Wurttemburg,DEU
SPRAGUE- Possibly from Holland

Germany, Ireland, Indiana, Iowa, North Carolina, Tennessee and Delmont,Pennsylvania are the most common places of birth in this tree.
