In Reply to: Almon Barnum Byrum and the name change story. by John A. Byram of 439

Hello John, My name is Holly Byrum Jacobs, a great great granddaughter of Almon B. Byrum. I actually met his son my great grandfather Charlie as he lived to be 106 years old.
I have Jeptha's (Almon's father) family bible and in it is a picture of Almon and his siblings. I have gotten in touch with Daughters of American Revolution. They are researching Japhet b 1721 & Jephtha b 1732 to see if they participated in the Revolutionary war. I am interested in that information. I have a print out that says Jephet participated. But no proof. Do you know of any others?
I don't know anything about the name change story. The bible from around 1823 spells the name ByrUm. What Byram do you come from?
So glad to find your message!
Thank you for your time.
Holly
