Narrative

Goodspeeds History of Southeast Missouri, The Goodspeed Publishing Company, 1888:

Edward Byington. On July 17, 1847, there was born to John and Mary A. (Brady) Byington, of Ste. Genevieve County, a son. It was their fourth child born there in the county of their own birth, and the child was destined to become a follower in the footsteps of his father as a tiller of the soil. This child was Edward Byington, the subject of this sketch, and one of the well-known citizens of Perry Township. (St. Francois Co., MO) At the early age of three years, Edward was left without a mother, but some time after her death his father married a second time. Edward left home at the age of nineteen and entered the Valle Mines. It was not long, however, until he returned to farming, and in 1868 he settled at his present home. He bought the estate in 1871 and in 1878 erected his commodious residence. The estate includes 320 acres of some of the finest lands in the township. During 1872 and 1873, he was also engaged in teaming in Washington County, Mo., and in connection with farming he has been occupied in buying and selling stock. In 1882 Mr. Byington was also engaged in farming in Mississippi, Mo., for a year. In his public services he has been on the board of education and he is an active supporter of the A.O.U.W. and K. of P. The Democratic party generally voices his political sentiments. He was united in marriage in 1868, on November 4, to Miss Clarinda Lassource, a lady born in Ste. Genevieve County, on Christmas day in 1851. She died May 8, 1888. Their children are May C., Anna B., Valter K., Shitton E., William L. (deceased), Preston E., Mertilla, Maggie and Clevie (deceased).

NOTE: Margaret Haile Byington married Edward Byington in 1894 according to her obituary. They had 3 children: Kenneth, Myrtle, & Pauline. Also note that Shitton is how Shelton Edward Byington's name was spelled in the Goodspeed book. Margaret Haile Byington's obit is posted under the obituaries on Rootsweb.
