Pat, I'd think the Barbour and Blount County Bynums are related, but I've not made a connection yet.
That's not what you'd call a common name.
I wonder about the different spellings, think someone told me once they use Byneau at one time, Baynum maybe.Who knows.
I've not been to AL to look at the book, had hoped this year to go to the Bynum Reunion in Eufaula on June 13, but can't go.
Thanks for the info on John Wesley.I have him having the following siblings: Reuben W. Bynum m. Lucy Walker (this is the line I'm following) William Turner Bynum Mary Elizabeth Bynum James Jefferson Bynum Nancy M. Bynum Sarah P. Bynum Morgan Bynum Sophia Bynum Malinda Bynum Susan Bynum
