I am a Webb descendant and researcher seeking info on Hilary Byrd, who m. Mary Ann Webb on 27 Dec 1860 in Union Co., Arkansas. I'd like to know who his parents and siblings were along with any additional info on the children of him and Mary Ann.
Mary Ann was the d/o James Webb and Elizabeth Fitts of Greenville District, SC, who migrated to TN, AL, and finally to Union Co., AR, in the mid-1840s.
According to the 1870 and 1880 Union Co., AR, Hilary and Mary Ann Byrd had a daughter, W. Elizabeth "Lizzie" Byrd, b. ca 1862. Did they have other children or possibly another child by the name of N.O. Byrd?
Lizzie Byrd m. Franklin F. Thomas on 4 Jan 1886 in Union Co., AR. She was his 2nd wife (1st wife was Margaret Amanda Jerry). They had 2 daughters, Julia A., b. Sep 1889, and Martha, b. Mar 1893 (both in Union Co., AR).
I believe Julia m. Alva J. Watts in 1912 in Union Co., AR, and they had 5 known chn: Grace, Alva Burl, Richard, Walter, & Mary Virginia. Alva and Julia moved to Webster and Caddo Parishs in LA, with Alva's last residence in Shreveport, LA, on DOD 24 Mar 1960. I don't have a DOD or location for Julia.
There is a marriage record in Union Co., AR, for Mattie Thomas (right age) to Ollie F. Watts (Oliver) that I believe is Martha, but I have no further info to substantiate my belief at this time.Was Ollie F. Watts related to Alva J. Watts?
Was the George J. Byrd who m. Eliza Spears on 3 Mar 1859 in Union Co., AR, any relation to Hilary Byrd?
Any help would be much appreciated and I will gladly share my info. Thanks, VRB
