William David Byars

I got a package in the mail today from Mr. Alvin Byars (whom some of you met at the 2009 reunion when he came down from TN to meet the family and visit Redin’s grave).  In it was a little mini history on Willie and this picture of he and his wife Lavina Evett ByarsWilliam David Byars, the first born son to James Riley Byars (Redin’s brother) was born October 19 1873 and died February 26 1968. He and Lavina were married April 28, 1896 and had ten children.  Two of which, Sarah Ethel and Robert Lee died of the Spanish Flu in 1918.  The last of their kids, Annie Byars Anthony died in 2007.
