Your Almond Barnum Byrum is in my book. He is the son of Jephthah III Byrum b.1801, who was the son of Japhthah Byram, Jr. Note: It was Jephthah III's family that changed the name from Byram to Byrum. It is strange as my own family pronounced the name as by-rum and not by-ram but we held the Byram spelling. Jephthah Jr. moved his family from NJ to up state NY. Jephthah Jr., father was Jephthah who was son of Ebenezer Byram who moved from MA to NJ. His father was Nicholas Byram who was in the King Phillip War, and his father was Nicholas born 1610 in England.

My family goes back to Ebenezer Byram, Jr. who was brother to Jepthah as both were sons of Ebenezer.

Japhet Byram, b.1721 was another son of Ebenezer and was a private in the Morris Co., NJ's Militia in the Rev war but he is not your line. You do need my book.

Jepthah, b.1732 married Susanna Washburn. Susanna was the daughter of Eleazer Washburn and Anna Alden. Anna is descended from John and Priscilla Alden. So there is a Mayflower connection.

The township, Byram, in Sussex Co., NJ is named after Jephthah Byram

My data does not have Jephthah, b.1732 as being in the Rev War. His son was born in 1776 and too young for the war.
