Lynn, generally speaking, I believe most of us that are researching our side of the Kyser family have encountered the same road block. We have proof of John and Barbary Kyser through census reports and various articles specific to certain children, but very little after that. Census reports also indicate John and Barbary were born in S.C., and it has been suspected they may have had ties (born/lived/past) to the Lexington and Orangesburg (SP) County areas of SC. Through another source, I was told that those areas were good to settlers because of the rivers running through them and because of the religious protection granted by authorities. Unfortunately, other information gained through family articles suggest John and Barbary may have been born overseas. I would like to talk more about the ship and the path of travel you mentioned. With regards to C.A. Kyser, I saw the same census report that suggested he was married to a "Mollie M." However, my research suggests there was only Martha (with whom he had the children) and Annie, or Ms. Annie as my Dad remembers. There are a number of conflicts with the children, but I am pretty sure Mattie Lee Kyser married a McPherson. And lastly, was your grandfather named "Alvie D. Kyser (the "D" not standing for anything specific)."
