    Hello David,

    If I am right, you are a son of James Byerlee, who became a geophysicist and moved to America. In 1978, he was the discoverer of the law of geophysics, known as Byerlee’s Law which is an experimentally derived law in geophysics that gives the stress circumstances in the Earth’s crust at which fracturing along a geological fault takes place.

    If this is so, yoou are a grandson of Christian Joseph Byerlee, and a great granson of Hortace Edgar Walter Byerlee and Josephine Byerlee nee Rollinson. Josephine remarried to Hans Johannes Truels Nissen, who was a brother of Maren Johanna Marie Nissen, my Great Grandmother. If you are interested I can let you have quite a bit of information on Christian Joseph Byerlee and his brother Angus Gunn Byerlee, who became cane farmers in Innisfail, Qld, along with their half brothers, the Nissens.

    I’d also be imnterested oin any further information of the Byerlee family.

    Please contact me direct on my email address.
