I'm pretty sure the James M Byerley you're referring to is my great, great grandfather, James Milroy Byerley. If you're interested, I can send you pedigree or you can look at my GED file here at rootsweb: fast in OK.
James was married to Georgia Anna Geddes and they had 6 sons: Charley, James Jr, Ross Eddy, Leo, Fred and Harry. Georgia died then and James married a woman we know only as "Mary." That marriage ended and he married Nina Mae Laird and they had two daughters, Georgia Ann and Margaret Elizabeth.
My grandfather wrote a bit about this family, which I can send you if you contact me off site.
