Bio of Richard Bird from History of the Early Settlers of Sangamon County, Illinois: "Centennial Record"

Bird, Richard, was born Nov. 19, 1804, in Mason county, Kentucky. He united with the M.E. church, in 1824, and commenced preaching in 1827. His first circuit was in the southern part of the State, and extended into Tennessee. By a singular coincidence, his colleagues bore such names as to indicate that the trio belong to feathered species of animated nature, Crow, Martin and Bird. Rev. Richard Bird was married, March 8, 1832, in Shelby county, Key., to Lucinda N. Fullinwider. They had two children in Kentucky, and came to Sangamon county, Ill., settling near Mechanicsburg, and at once united with the Ill. Conf. M.E. church, and commenced the work of traveling preacher. They had seven children in Illinois, three of who died under seven years. The two born in Kentucky died in Illinois, one at five and the other at two years of age.
