Elisha Pownall Peters (brother of William Done Peters) married Drucilla Guthrie (neice of Lydia Guthrie). My ancestors.....William Done and Lydia (Guthrie) Peters m. 1817 in Pike County, Ohio.

Here is some new BIRD/PETERS info for you:

My Two Bird connections:

1) Effie Bird(daughter of Elisha Bird and Cathrina Ringo). Effie married Reuben Pownall and they had a daughter name Rachel Pownall(b. 1756 d. 1832 Pike County, Ohio). Rachel married a John Peters (b. ca 1752 d. 1828 Pike County, Ohio).

2) Mary Bird d. 1780 Lost River, WV ( daughter of Andrew and Magdalene 'JONES' Bird) Mary Bird m. James Peters ca 1749 and James drowned in the Susquehanna River in ca 1752. Posthumously and 3 months later a John Peters was born. It is this Mary Bird who we Speculate that married Stephen Ruddell in 1752.
(A) Three-Way CAIN Connection to the BIRDS-Siblings
Delilla Cain m. John Williams(John's 1st marriage)
John's 3rd marriage produced a William Williams, who married Mary Lincoln Peters(G Grand-daughter of John and Rachel (POWNALL) Peters.

She married George William Wilson(Son of Lt. Col. George Wilson and brother of Captain John Wilson). My 4th G Grandfather was Lt. Col. John Guthrie, who served under these two Wilson's in the PA 8th Regiment during the Revolutionary War. John Guthrie and his wife Lydya Baldwin produced a child Lydia Guthrie that married a William D. Peters of Pike County, Ohio,(son of John and Rachel 'POWNALL' Peters. Remember....Anthony and Mary (BIRD) Sadowski's son Andrew Sadowski m. Catherine Inskeep. Mary was Elisha's sister. Andrew was Mary Bird's nephew.

Mary's sister, Hannah married a Robert Parker, Sr. They had a Robert, Jr that married a Sarah Cambell. Sarah's brother John Campbell married a Elizabeth Newman. They had a son, Joseph that married an Elizabeth Peters. This, the daughter of John and Rachel 'POWNALL' Peters.
