In Reply to: MICHAEL PYRON, TN/MS by Michael Mudd of 494

Perhaps Michael Pyron in Carroll Co, MS, is the son of Eve(Evey) Pyron, who is next to him in the 1850 Census of Carroll Co.; she was the widow of Allen Pyron who died in Lowndes Co., MS about 1836. (But according to the 1850 census Michael was born 1817 and Eve was born 1806... But that census also has "Arbitha" instead of Tabitha...)
At any rate, the answer to your question seems to lie in Lowndes Co. John Pyron (prob. son of James and Mary (Bell) Pyron of Mecklenburg Co., NC) and his four sons, William, Richard, Allen, and Robert all showed up in Lowndes Co. about 1820--in time to pay poll taxes in 1822.
William appears in the 1820 census of Franklin Co., AL, (east MS was then still part of the Indian territory and part of AL and is on the border of MS, as Monroe/Lowndes is on the other side of the border. 1822-1825, William paid poll tax in Monroe Co; he appears in the 1825 census: 1 taxable poll, 3 free white males, 7 free white females. An 1828 deed from "Wm. Pyron to Reuben Rogers is for 79.06 acres in Monroe." Wm. died in 1835; his widow was Ursala.
Richard Pyron (son of John) m.1st Zella Groves (born SC) and 2nd a widow, Mary A Love (born GA). He paid taxes in Lowndes Co in 1821, continues to appear in Lowndes censuses through 1860.
Allen (son of John) paid taxes 1822-1833, died intestate 1835; his widow Evey "Pyrant" paid taxes in Lowndes in 1837 buth appears in the 1840 Carroll Co. census with John, 28, b. TN; Jane, 16, b. MS, and Robert, 15, b. MS.
Robert (son of John) appears on tax lists of Monroe Co. (now Lowndes) 1822-1828 and in the 1825 and 1837 state censuses and the 1830 and 1840 censuses.
One source says that John also had a dau. Fanny. Actually, I got into the Pyron family trying to find out if they were related to Kezia/Keziah Pyron who m. Thomas J. Polk in Mecklenburg Co., NC, moved for a while to TN (as did some of the Pyrons) and appeared in Lowndes Co. about the same time as the Pyrons. Have you run across Kezia/Keziah? Ann
