Peter Bird
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: unknown
Death: Dec. 9, 1862

Peter's family name had been L'oiseau. French for bird.

Peter Bird was a private in the Civil War. The headstone was contracted for on Mar 29, 1879. Therefore I believe that is why the date on the headstone is not the specific date of 1862. He served 7 months, 9 days and was discharged Aug 9 1862. He died from war wounds.

Peter married Amelia (Milly) Strong June 29 1839. They had 10 children. Rosella, Mary Louisa, Charles, Julia, Lucretia Cordelia, Mary Lucinda, William Henry, Ellen Mirander, Peter, and Adelia (Eda)(my great-great grandmother)
