Correspondence between Ediee Joffre and Stewart


From Stewart 22 Feb, 2000 to Ediee Joffre about Origins of Colonel John Lyles and his brother Ephraim

Dear Mrs. Edith Lyles Joffre,

Thank you for your kind Mon, 21 Feb 2000 request that I advise you where my Lyles ancestors came from, and for informing me that some of the names of my ancestors fit your chart from Alexandria. Virginia.

Please send me your "chart from Alexandria. Virginia" and anything else you can about this Lyles family. I would like to know more so I can help disseminate and preserve its genealogy and history.

According to "Mills' Statistics". "The first settlement of Fairfield District took place about the year 1745. Colonel John Lyles and his brother, Ephraim , were among the first settlers. They located at the mouth of Beaver Creek, on Broad River. Ephraim Lyles was killed by Indians in his own house; but by a wonderful interposition of Povidence, the Indians went off and left Lyles' seven or eight children and his wife in it, after killing a Negro on the outside. The Lyles were native of Brunswick, Va., but moved to this county from Buis County, (?) N.C."

According to a chart Victoria Brannon <VABrannon@aol.com> emailed me, my great great great great great grandfather Ephraim 1720 - Abt. 1755 and his brother Colonel John Lyles were sons of JOHN LYLES (Abt. 1695 - Aft. 1762) and Anne Abt. (1698 - Abt. 1797).

Until Victoria Brannon wrote me, all I knew was that I am a descendant of Nancy B. (Baxter?) LYLES (1812 -1895) and "Manus" (Arromanus Lyles). I modified Victoria's chart to include Nancy B. Lyles' descendants, and posted it at http://members.tripod.com/~nl/CHARTL.htm Is that where you found it?

Victoria Brannon is a descendant of Millie Lyles, but has not yet been able to trace her kinship to my Lyles ancestor Ephraim. Millie lived in the same area (Beaver Creek) where Ephraim settled. Please help Victoria if you can. She may be able to help you more than I can. Victoria's daughter
Malilnda is also interested in genealogy.
Sincerely, STEWART


From: Ediee Joffre Tue, 22 Feb 2000 10:48

Dear Stewart,

As requested, I am sending you my genealogy, thus far. I do have further information on children, listed under some of the names, but didn't go into that as yet. I did contact the lady you suggested, and hope to hear from her. I also visited her site, and printed all her data to put into a file for further
research.

Thanks for your speedy reply, and hope this listing may be of help to you. I still have unattached members in Alexandria, that are members of the family, but until I get all the rest of the family members names, i.e., the children of Thomas C. Lyles, I can't attach them, that's where I've found an Arromanus andd an Ephraim. It would take me quite awhile to find that as it's all just copies of documents, and not filed with as much organization as it should be. But both those Lyles names did appear in Alexandria, and both are unusual names!

Ediee Joffre


From: Ediee Joffre 24 Feb 2000 13:08

I'm very new to sending this data out, so hope you can figure this out for yourself as I'm quite new to this swapping. Hopefully I'll get better with time. I have census records and the like to the two men in your line that will eventually fit into mine...but until I know the other children of Thomas C. Lyles, I won't be able to put them on the right place on the chart. I was told by a professional genealogist who was teaching my Elderhostel Class in genealogy that at this time and place, all Lyles that were white in Alexandria, at the time of my people, were almost certainly part of my family somehow.
Hope this helps. Ediee


From: Ediee Joffre 25 Feb 2000 10:06 about http://lyles.homepage.com/joffre.htm

Dear Stewart,

What a nice thing you did for me. Now all I have to do is give people the http address and they can check out the data themselves. That's wonderful.

Is there a way I can contact Mrs. Brannon for her information on Lyles, or is it involved in your data?

Thanks again so much for all your help.

Sincerely,

Edith Lyles Joffre


Correspondence between Bernard A. Tretick and Stewart


From: "Bernard A. Tretick" 26 Feb 2000 12:45 about Lyles Family

Hi Stewart!

Boy was I impressed with the web page you made for Ediee Joffre. The two of us ... no, not you and I ... have been corresponding for some time now and I have sent her a lot of Lyles ancestry information.

My mother, Bessie Elizabeth Lyles, was born in Washington, DC, in 1913. She is the daughter of Augustus Lyles and Mary Fisher. And, that is the sum total of what I have for her.

.... Would you share with me all that you have on the Lyles, Lyle, Liles, and Lilies families.

And, would you, could you, aw, please do ... teach me how to put together a web page. Although I am somewhat computer literate, I do not know how to make a web page.

Your guidance would surely be appreciated. And, I will pass on what you tell me to Ediee and R. Lyles, who has also shared with me.

Cheers, and thanks, Bernie >*,*<
