R_277: Byram Bybee
"My great-great grandparents Byram Lee Bybee and Betsy Lane Bybee joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Indiana and moved to Nauvoo, Illinois in 1842. They were living two or three miles south of Nauvoo when one day five armed men rode up to their farmhouse and demanded that Byram move his family to Nauvoo. Betsy was stirring soap in a large iron kettle in the yard. She took the stick she was using and shook it at the leader and said, "We will not leave here until my soap is done." The men laughed among themselves and at their captain and rode away. The next morning Byram was standing in the door yard when a bullet whizzed over his head. They left as soon as possible for Nauvoo." - Jeanette Drake (http://www.drakefamilyfarms.com/soapmaking.html)
