Birth: Sep. 21, 1832
Walton County
Georgia, USA
Death: May 13, 1912
Walton County

Name on Civil War Pension paper is listed as: Williamson C. Bird (not Byrd). Tombstone inscription is incorrect.

Name on CSA Marker is incorrect. Should be Williamson C. Bird.

Findagrave administrators merged two memorials to create this one, as there was confusion about the headstone and CSA Marker. After years of research, it was deemed that this memorial is now correct.
