Jonathan Byrd m. Rachel Sweet VA/KY/IN

Have been away from genealogy for a bit. Am still seeking information on Jonathan Byrd/Bird born bef. 1750 in VA. He was married to Rachel Sweet of TN in the 1770s. Jonathan served in the Revolution from North Carolina. They had at least 3 children:

Rachel b. ca. 1770
Abraham Sweet b. 1785
James Luther b. 1801

Jonathan received a land grant in Barren Co. KY. He was living there in the 1810 census. By the 1820 census he'd moved his family to Crawford Co., IN. In the mid- 1820s they'd moved to Putnam Co., IN where he died in 1827.

I have built a website with what I do know about Jonathan's life, including photos of his grave and the plaque in the Putnam Co. Courthouse with his Rev. War Service listing. You can check it out at

I'd be greatful to hear from anyone with information on this Byrd family.
