In Reply to: Re: ALDEN BYRAM-MARY(POLLY) MARONEY-ALABAMA by John Byram of 439

I know this Alden Byram went from Madison Co.,AL to MS and settled in Izard Co., Ark. His father was Levi Byram, of Knox Co., TN who was a son of Ebenezer and Lydia Guerin Byram, originally of Morris Co., NJ. Ebenezer Byram was the son of Ebenezer Byram and Abigail Alden (descendant of John Alden of the Mayflower)of Bridgwater, Mass. to NJ. Ebenezer Byram of TN's youngest daughter, Sarah Byram, b. 1782 TN married Stephen A. Julian in 1799 and they moved with their children and grandchildren to Wright Co., MO in 1844. This was my family line. Their middle daughter, Huldah Julian, b. 1817 married 1835 William D. Grills in Knox Co., TN, went to Missouri with family in 1844 and eventually settled in Izard Co., Ark. in 1860's. I don't know if they knew their Byram cousins were there in the same vicinity or not, but maybe they did. At any rate, my family ended up in the same county in Arkansas and my grandparents knew some of Alden Byram's descendants there. My grandmother had no idea she was related distantly to them at all. She is a great granddaughter of Huldah Julian Grills and great-great granddaughter of Sarah Byram Julian. Have more information if you would like it. Am sending my information to John Byram to add to his collection.
