My grandpa was Larry C. Byrd and his father was William Ivan (Evan) Byrd. Ivan's brother's are George Mckinley Byrd, Solomon, Avery Columbus Byrd, James Oscar Byrd, Manley Garfield Byrd, Frank Byrd. Ivan's sister's were Ollie Viola Byrd Wiles, Ellen Byrd Johnson, and Florence (Duggy or Myra) Byrd Whitley.Ivan's father was William H. Byrd born 1850 and I think he died in 1928. Ivan's mother was Phoebe Brown and I have found in some places her last name was Hawkins which leads me to believe she may have been married more than once. William H. Byrd's father was Braxton and his mother was Jean or Jane Wood.
