Note: № 45 Enoch ANDERSON married Elizabeth BYERS Watkins in Rutherford Co, North Carolina ca. 1803. She was the daughter of Rev War Vet Nathan BYERS (b. 1749, Granville Co, North Carolina; d. 1846, Spartanburg Co SC, 1846) and the widow of Daniel WATKINS. Elizabeth's sons Daniel WATKINS, Jr. and Evan WATKINS moved with the family from Rutherford Co NC to Warren County, Tennessee. Daniel WATKINS Jr. (and probably Evan WATKINS) moved to Jefferson Co, Alabama in 1821. № 46 Nathan BYERS was probably of brother of Eizabeth BYERS Watkins Anderson. Researcher Jim Brown,

№ 46 Nathan Byars was the brother of Elizabeth Anderson. He was born ca 1772 married Emily/Milly TURNER, daug of John TURNER. Nathan Byars traveled back and forth from Warren Co to Spartanburg Dist SC trying to settle his father-in-law’s estate. Euna McWHORTER BYARS stated he married 1816 to Delphy Logan. That was an error. Delphy Logan was the second wife (mother in law of his son John) Of Nathan Byars b 1746. Nathan Byars b. 1746 married first Drucilla Harrellson, daug. of Burgess Harrelson. Drucilla was awarded one of the first divorces in NC. The trouble began in 1801 when Nathan would get in his cups and would put her our of the house. According to NC law Nathan Byars Sr. could not remarry unless Drucilla married or died. Family tradition says she was living with Enoch Anderson and her daughter Elizabeth when she died. For thos who show Nathan Byars Jr. b ca 1772, he married Emily/Milly Turner, not his step mother Delphy Logan.
Submitted by Clovis Byars Herring (

CBH Note: There is much misinformation regarding Nathan Byars Jr. and Sr. I published the Byars/Byers Family Enquirer for 6 ½ years, back in the 1980 until 1981. With more than 100 subscribers about half claimed descent from Old Nathan b. 1746. I had a portion of the quarterly devoted to sorting out fact from fiction. Now that there is a Byars DNA Program, perhaps we will finally know how this family proves out. I believe Nathan Byars on this tax roll is the s/o of Nathan Byars and Drucilla Herrellson. This Nathan married Millie/Emilia Turner, daughter of John Turner. There is documentation on John Turner's will and a land deed where Emilia signed away her dower rights. This was in Spartanburg Dist. SC.
