I show George William Byrd aka 'Pioneer George' coming from Richmond, Va. He was born abt 1730 and died abt 1825 in Yancey Co, NC and is buried on the Mose Anglin Branch. It is believed he married Margaret Ann "Annie" Hutson in Charleston, SC. They had nine children: Susannah "Sooky", Patrick "Pad", Christopher, William Kimsey Sr., Samuel J., George Washington Sr, Mary, Anna "Annie", and Levicia Keziah. I got this information out the book by Lloyd Bailey titled History of the Byrds. I am also trying to get additional information on George. He is my 5th-great grandfather. Hope to hear from you.
