In Reply to: BYRD/WORRELL/RUDDELL cousins Missouri by Nannette Serra of 861

I do not have any Worrell information, but I assure you there is a connection to the people you are seeking. I have four major connections to Ruddells in my family line. At this period of time, in this region of the country, it was common practice for kin to marry.

Andrew Byrd b. 1687 and Magdalene Jones (Jonasson) b.1690 had four children who married four children of John Ruddell b. abt 1690 and Mary Cook b. 1698. I have a huge collection of highly interconnected families who migrated simultaneously from Pennsylvania to Virginia, to North Carolina, To Kentucky or Tennessee, and on to Missouri.

I would love to find out some of your other surnames and find out how many of them I have other connections to or information about. Byrd, or Bird--those are the only spellings I have found, there is ample information on them, but much of it is confused because there were a number of cousins with the same names in the same locations, so it is very difficult to determine whose parents are whose, because they also have the same names.

Hope you not looking for boring, because this in very involved, and a whole lot of fun!
