Children of John and Elizabeth:

Narrative

     John and Elizabeth lived at Pleasant Valley until they sold the land in 1821, following their purchase of 364 acres from Thomas Harrison. It is listed in the deed as a plantation, but that did not mean what we think of plantations today. Plantations then could be small acreages. The land was located 3 1/2 miles north of Harrisonburg and extended on both sides of the "Great Wagon Road" (presently Route II).4

     John and his son are buried on the his land three miles of Harrisonburg. After his death, his wife and a number of his children moved to Limestone, Washington Co., Tennessee.5

She was interred at Church of the Brethern Cemetery at Limestone, Washington Co., Tennessee.1

Children of Elizabeth and John:

Narrative

     Analysis of birth and death dates for Elizabeth:



     On the 1850 through 1870 U. S. Census, Elizabeth's age is listed as 72, 82, and 92. This would indicated fairly consistently that she was born in 1778. The birth date generally is given as 12 February 1778.

     Her death date is generally given as 10 August 1865, although The Byerly Family of the Valley of Virginia by John F. Byerly, Jr. gives a birth date of 12 February 1778, and a death date of 19 August 1865. In either case, 10 August or 10 August for the death, the death year is incorrect as Elizabeth is alive and appears on the 1870 U. S. Census at age 92 and an invalid with her daughter Catherine and her husband Henry Lineweaver. John F. Byerly, Jr., also includes a tombstone inscription from the Church of the Brethren Cemetery for Elizabeth indicating she died at age 97yrs., 5 mos., 28 days. With his stated death date of 10 August 1865, her birth dates calculates to 22 February 1768. If you assume that maybe the death year is a typo and maybe was 1875, her birth dates calculates to 22 February 1778. Neither is equal to his stated birth date of 12 February 1778. If you apply John F. Byerly, Jr.'s transcription of age at death to the state birth date of 12 February 1778, you get a death date 9 August 1875. The information provided by John F. Byerly, Jr. does not reconcile.

     The online site for the Church of the Brethren Cemetery which can be found at http://tngenweb.org/washington/records-data/cemeteries/cemeteries-of-washington-county-tennessee/cemeteries-of-washington-county-tennessee-l-m-n/limestone-grace-churches-of-the-brethren-cemetery-2/ states the Elizabeth Byerley died 10 August 1865, at age 93 years, 5 mos., 28 days. Using that information would give her birth date as 13 February 1772, but we already know the death years is incorrect. If you assume death year was 1875, then the calculation gives the birth date 13 February 1782. If you assume that 12 February 1778, is the correct birth date then the calculation gives the death date as 9 August 1871.

     In summary, based on the above we have the following possibilities for birth and death dates:

          Birth:
               22 February 1768 (unlikely, before parents were married)
               12 February 1778 (probable)
               13 February 1778 (possible)
               22 February 1778 (possible)
               13 February 1782 (unlikely)

          Death:
               10 August 1865 (incorrect)
               19 August 1865 (incorrect)
               9 August 1871 (possible)
               9 August 1875 (possible)
               10 August 1875 (assumed for calculation and possible)
               19 August 1875 (assumed for calculation and possible.)

Joseph Byerly

#13662, b. circa 1730, d. 1803
Relationship4th great-grandfather of Paul Edward Lawrence
ChartsDescent from Joseph Byerly to Researcher

Major Life Events

     Joseph Byerly was born circa 1730.1 He married Martha Bierer circa 1763 at Augusta Co., Virginia. Rockingham Co. was formed from Augusta Co. in 1778.2,3,4 Joseph died in 1803.1 He was interred at Byerly Family Cemetery in an unmarked grave at Pleasant Valley, Rockingham Co., Virginia.2

Children of Joseph and Martha:

Narrative

     Joseph was also known as Joseph Beyrer.

     Joseph arrived in Philadelphia from Rotterdam on the ship Louisa on 8 November 1752. He came from the Palatinate to Pennsylvania, then to Maryland, and about 1783 to Rockingham Co., Virginia. The land purchased by Joseph laid in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley with a spectacular view. The Blue Ridge range is to the east, the Alleghaney mountains to the west. The land was located along the Great Wagon Road stretching north and south through the valley. The name later given to the area where Joseph settled was "Pleasant Valley."

     It is estimated that Joseph owned around 600 acres of land. Lands received by his sons through his will totaled 512 acres. This was after sales of 50 acres to Henry Dike on 19 November 1805 and another sale to Christian Niswanger in April of 1789.

     Joseph established a mill in Pleasant Valley, although some say it was a distillery before becoming a mill. Another descendant recalls a comment that Joseph was a distiller. This is not in conflict with the Mennonite or Brethren faiths of the Byerlys. The Temperance Movement was a child of the early 19th century. Until then, tax lists revealed that many Mennonites and Brethren distilled liquor as most Germans. Homemade beer was not thought of as an intoxicating drink, but as a quencher during the hot Virginia summers. Drinking, more or less temperately, was an unquestioned practice until the second quarter of the 18th century. They did fight excesses though. The Dunkers were the first to go on record against any form of indulgence in alcohol long before the temperance movement reached organized form.

     The mill, built around 1800, was destroyed by fire in 1886. It stood on Swift Run Gap road where it crossed Kirtesses' Creek.5

     Joseph is buried in an unmarked grave in the Byerly Cemetery on the original farm at Pleasant Valley with two of his sons, Joseph II and David, and their wifes. Joseph's will was burned in the Civil War and only the administrators are given. Executor bonds, 21 June 1803, list Joseph Biyer, Sr. descendant. Executors listed are Joseph, David, and John Byerly. No other children are listed. The bond was set for $40,000.6

     Joseph was also known as Brier.

     Elizabeth J. V. Byerly was born. She married Samuel Paul, son of Peter Paul and Catherine ?, on 13 January 1828 at Rockingham Co., Virginia. The Virginia Historical Register, Rockingham County Marriages indicates the marriage was 31 January 1828.1,2 Elizabeth died probably between 1831 and 1833. The death date of 6 Februrary 1885 given for Elizabeth by John F. Byerly, Jr. in his book, The Byerly Family of the Valley of Virginia is actually the death date for Elizabeth Ann Whitmer who evidently was the second wife of Samuel Paul. It is believed then that Elizabeth Byerly probably died somewhere between 1831 and 1833.
