I am interested in any Byrd family researchers in Mobile County. I have several Byrd families that I am trying to connect. I am also hunting any info on the parents and siblings of William Marion Byrd and Lemuel Byrd of North Mobile County. I am hunting any info on Thomas Byrd's daughter Ferriby and her husband Eli Booth(Boothe)

(2) JOHN ALVIE KNOX, 04 Jan 1911, Franklin County, Mississippi6; b. 1881, probably in MS; d. 31 Aug 1947, Wynne, Cross, AR.

Notes for CORNELOUS ELNORA BYRD:

1920 Federal Census - Wynne, Cross, Arkansas, household #51.

1910 Federal Census - Bemis, Madison, Tennessee.

1900 Federal Census - Jefferson County, Mississippi, page 104, household #23. Living with he r Aunt Forence (Smith) ARNOLD.

Cornie's estate was probabted in Cross County, Arkansas. Final settlement was filed 24 May 19 48 and approved by Probate Court on 27 September 1948 and recorded in Probate Book G, pages 3 24-325.. Her daughter, Byrdell, was appointed administrix of the estate on 3 November 1947 , recorded in Book C, "Bonds & Letters of Administration & Guardians" in the Cross County, Ar kansas County Clerk's Office.

Cornie's father died when she was two years old, her mother died when she was four. After th e death of her father in McCall Creek, Franklin County, Mississippi her mother, Julia, alon g with her eight children moved in with her father, John Washington Smith, who lived in Lorma n, Jefferson County, Mississippi. Julia passed away two years later and the children were ta ken in by various relatives. Cornie went to live with her mother's sister, Florence Arnold , who lived in Lorman. The twin boys, Jesse and Wesse, went to live with their older siste r Annie after she married.



Cornie first married Charles (Charley) Harrison LOVRIEN on 18 September 1904 in Jefferson Cou nty, Mississippi. They may have married in Lorman since she was living there in the 1900 cen sus with her aunt, Florence ARNOLD. Charley died after only six years of marriage, sometim e in 1910. Have not been able to find a death record for him so don't know the cause of deat h. He is buried in the Bemis Cemetery next to their daughter, Mary Ethel LOVRIEN, who died f rom burns at age 3. They were living in Bemis, Tennessee at the time of death where he was w orking as a machinist at the Bemis Cotton Mill. Apparently, Cornie, moved back to Franklin C ounty, Mississippi with her two children, Charles Jr & Nellie, after his death. She remarrie d shortly thereafter, 4 Jan 1911 to Alvie Knox in Franklin County, Mississippi. Alvie & Corn ie moved to Cross County Arkansas sometime before the 1920 census.

Cornie & her second husband, Alvie Knox, lived in a two-story apartment/house in Wynne. The ir oldest granddaughter, Joyce, lived above them. Mr. Knox died August 31, 1947 from stomac h cancer. Cornie died two months later from a brain hemorrhage. She was cooking dinner whe n she got sick. She told her granddaughter, Joyce Morris, to go get her mother, Byrdell, bu t not to scare her. She died at Earle, Arkansas in an ambulance while en route to a Memphi s hospital the following morning. Her son, Charles Lovrien was riding in the ambulance. Fun eral services were held at the Vanndale Baptist Church.

Memories of Cornie's grandson, Jack Knox - "we called Cornie Byrd Knox, my grandmother, "Bi g Mama". I would spend time with them each summer, along with my sister. "Big Mama", wa s a great person, great cook, and one of the kindess people you would ever want to meet. Sh e was a peace-maker because Papa Knox was some what of a roudy, ready to fight person. He wa s always the PR man at the Palace Cafe which they successfully operated on Front Street in Wy nne for a number of years. Big Mama had a cot in the kitchen so she could rest between meal s while Papa Knox worked the front and took in the money. Nearly everyone knew and liked the m, except a few who had Papa Knox on their case."

Notes for CHARLES HARRISON LOVRIEN III:

Charley was born around 1882 to George Wilder LOVRIEN and Johanna ALLEN. There are no Erie , Pennsylvania birth or marriage records available for this time period so have not been abl e to document the exact date of birth. The LOVRIEN family had lived in Erie since at least 1 861 based on city directories and other records.

It appears Charley left Erie with his parents and sister, Mary, in 1884. (Mary Prescott LOV RIEN died on August 30, 1883, of cancer) A brother, Clarence, was born in Tennessee in 188 9.

Have not been able to locate him in the 1900 federal census but he is found in the 1901 Memph is, Tennessee City Directory where he was working as a machinist at Memphis Machine Works . 1890 census records were destroyed by a fire. The next documentation found is his marriag e on September 18, 1904, to Cornie BYRD in Jefferson County, Mississippi, probably in the tow n of Lorman. Their daughters, Mary Ethel (abt 1906) and Nellie Johanna (1908) were both bor n in Mississippi. Their son, Charles Harrison LOVRIEN was born September 1, 1909, in Bemis . Charley & Cornie are found in the April 15, 1910 federal census living in Bemis, Madison , Tennessee, District 160 where he is working as a machinist at the new Bemis Cotton Mill. H e died shortly after this at the age of 28 years. The cause of death is not known. He is bu ried in plot 179 in Bemis Cemetery beside his daughter, Mary Ethel Lovrien who is buried in p lot 180. Both of their graves are unmarked. (Mary Ethel fell into a fire and died from burn s at age 3)

Cornie and her children moved back to Mississippi where her family lived. She remarried in 1 911.
