  • Notes 
    • [Note that when Virginia seceded from the United States in 1861, a majority of residents in the western counties objected. Those counties petitioned Congress to be re-admitted to the Union. The State of West Virginia came into existence in 1863. Pendleton Cnty, W.Va. was created from parts of Virginia's Rockingham, August and Hardy counties.]
    • (Research):J.F. Byerly's book THE BYERLY FAMILY, pp. 62, 72 (1994), says her birth year was 1834; the LDS Ancestral File says "Abt. 1824" (probably a typo); Cathy Campbell's data has it at 1832, but no authority cited.
