Norma,
I show James W. Pyron b. 23Jul1867 who mrd. Leonora Elizabeth Duffey. He was son of William James Pyron b.8Dec1843 d. 3Aug1921 Carroll Co., GA.

This is all I have concerning them:

The 1920 Census of Bowdon, Carroll Co., Georgia lists him in the household of M. F. Jordan (a 59 yr old man who was employed as a machinist in a machine shop and who was born in AL). Jordan's wife was Mollie, age 48. William J. Pyron was listed as "Uncle", age 77, a widower, GA GA TN and not employed.

William J. Pyron may have been a grandson instead of son.

W J Pyron
