My grandmother's maiden name was Lillie B.
Bird, daughter of Frank Bird, son of John
Will Bird. Frank Bird married Sarah Burton.
John Will married Kitty Ward. I have not
gone back farther than this. I have seen
Joshua Birds name at the Sons of the American
Revolution Hqs. in Louisville, Ky. Most of
my KY ancestors lived in the area of Nelson
Washington and Mercer Counties of Ky. Lillie
B. Bird married James Harrison Hill. He
descended from William Hill, also a Rev. War
Soldier. He is listed as enlisting at
Staunton, Va. I need to go back to the
SAR and check on him, and will check on
Joshua Bird at the same time. Lillie B
Bird had a brother whose name was Joshua, and
it was the custom of many of the early
families to carry names forward.
