Mabel, I went away and came back to find your message of January 2000. What a delay, sorry.

Hannah Byrd could be related to your Birds. What we know is that she had her dower lands laid out on the North Fork of the Roanoke in 1774. Areaa was then in Fincastle, later Botetourt. Even later, maybe Montgomery Co., VA. The Fincastle part is in the records. She appears to be the widow of a David or Laird Miller...we think David, and it looks like she had two children from that marriage, William and Andrew. My estimates are that these sons were born about 1754-60, giving her an estimated date of birth of about 1735-40.

William and Andrew were placed under the guardianship of Col. George Miller, later found in Washington Co., VA.

Hannah's second husband was William Champ, who died about 1799 in Paint Lick, today Garrard Co., KY. Hanna seems to have died about ten years later, but that is only guess based on her disappearance from any records after 1800 or so.

Best regards,
