I think you have a different generation. Mary (Ross) Bird was born in 1744 in New Castle, DE. I have information (scant) on 9 children for this couple, born between 1764 and approx. 1788. The information was compiled by a researcher in the archives of the Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site. The birth dates from this source seem more reasonable for the children of a mother born in 1744. My list includes all the names you mention except Lawson Bird.
The children listed are:
Charlotte b. 1764-May 15, 1827 Charleston, SC
William Bird b. 18 March 1765
John Bird bpt. Nov. 16, 1767-d. 1812 California
Ross Bird b. 1770
George Bird, Sr. b. 1772-d. Sept. 25, 1847
Catherine (Kitty) Bird n.d.
Edward Bird b. 1781-d. Sept. 6, 1856
Henry Bird n.d.
James Bird n.d.
