Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 676, Salem Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"DAVID M. BYERS was born in Ashland County, Ohio, January 18, 1836, and was the son of ADAM and MARY (BOGER) BYERS. The family moved to Elkhart County (Indiana), where DAVID M. attended school, and worked on the home farm. In 1869, he moved to White County (Indiana), and in 1871 came to this township, where March 20, 1873, he married ANNIE E. McKINNEY, daughter of JAMES T. and CATHERINE H. (KEEVER) McKINNEY, and born November 21, 1853. To this union there were born two children - EFFIE A., August 30, 1874, and MAY H., May 26, 1879. He at first bought 150 acres of land in this township, went to farming, and took great interest in stock-raising. In 1875, he bought forty acres adjoining the village of Francesville, and built a good frame house, into which he moved his family. In 1878, he was seized with an illness that lasted until October 13, 1881, when he expired. He was a member of Monon Lodge, No. 208, of Masons, and was buried by that body with full honors. He was also a member of the Lutheran Church, and was greatly respected by all who knew him. Mrs. BYERS, with her little ones, resides in the Francesville home, and attends the Methodist Episcopal Church."
