I am going to post some information to see if anyone on the list/BB has any information on the Byram - Byrum - Byrom surname or families living in Bourbon Co, KY, Fleming Co, KY and Mason Co, VA (later Mason Co, WV).
The Byram connection to my family is with a marriage to Moses Knapp (b abt 1764 in NY).
Anne BYRAM/BYRUM married Moses Knapp on/abt 7 JULY 1802 in Fleming County, KY.
They migrated to Mason County, VA (later WV) by 1810.
No children were born to this union, or none mentioned in Moses Knapp's 1860 will/probate.
I do not have a birthdate or death for Anne Byram Knapp, but her death was prior to his 1842 marriage to his final wife; Anne probably died prior to the 1840 census.
Moses Knapp's first known marriage was to Elizabeth Emmons in Bourbon Co, KY in 1792.
In transcribed tax lists for Bourbon County KY, I did not find any Knapp or Emmons but I did find several Byram men:
1787>Byram, Peter + Byram, William
1788>Byram, Peter + Byram, William
1789>Byram, William + Byuram, Peter
1795>Byrim, Edward + Byrim, Lewis
1796>Byrum, David + Byrum, Edward + Byrum, Lewis
1797>Byram, Edward + Byram, Lewis
I am not sure if these Bourbon Co, KY Byram men had any connection to Anne Byram + Moses Knapp who married in Fleming Co, KY ???
Since families often migrated together, I am hopeful to find ancestry clues through other family connections.
Any information, clues or suggestions would be helpful and welcome.
