Additional Information Posted:
"Wife of David Noe, 2nd husband, George Byrum.
Lou Byrum's maiden name was Lourissa Stevens, daughter of James Jim Stephens and Frances Ward Stephens. The Wayne Co WV Birth Index lists her name at birth as Lucinda Stephens, but that was apparently incorrect. All through the census records it was spelled Luerissie, Luersie, Lurissa, Lou, and once in 1920 census it was spelled Louisa. The correct spelling must be either Lourissa or Lurissa."
