Pyron Family Genealogy Forum
A cousin of mine found this information on a sign along a highway. He took a picture of this sign and gave it to my great-aunt on my father's side. She allowed me to write this information so I could share it with anyone who sees this:

Once a thriving community. Named for Bob Pyron, a rancher who settled on nearby Buffalo Creek before 1890. School was first held in his cellar.
In 1900, town was founded and in 1910 citizens moved 4 miles southeast to be on Santa Fe Railroad. Pyron grew to include a 2-story hotel, odd fellows hall, stores and a cotton gin. But it declined after a major highway bypassed this site. Post office closed 1952 and today only the railroad crossing sign and a few houses remain. Old settlers gather yearly at cemetery to exchange reminiscences.
