William H. Byerley

He's listed in the 1870 census of Marshall County as William Byorley, farmer (age 40), with wife Rebecca (44), Joseph L (age 20, Farmer), Mary E (14), Nancy E (12), Izora M (8), Ulyssus G (6), and Martha J (4). William and Rebecca were from North Carolina, the rest were born in Kentucky.

Nearby is Rebeckah (58) and Hiliard (31) Byorly, with Rebeckah from North Caroliner and Hiliard from Kentucky. Rebeckah is almost certainly related to William, most likely the widow of one of his brothers.

Peggy Shaffer supplied the exact dates for William and Rebecca.
