Noah Bird
According to my records Noah had a first wife Ann Harned who died in 1851. Do you have any documentation of where she may be buried?

Maud May Swoboda memorial # 85529916
Had to modify you link to her mother. Her dad's wife Clara would have been ten years old at the time of Maud's birth. I noted her mother's name on the memorial and can only assume it was an earlier wife for William Walker Byrd.

Also decline the change to your first name based on the Tennessee birth records and the Calif death index.

Bird, Frazee and Turney Families
Hi Gene,
thanks for all the great work you do!

I noticed your post on Carla Denhardt's profile about the Bird family. The Bird, Frazee and Turney families are all part of my ancestry.

I'm trying to find ancestral info on these 2 women:
Sarah "Sallie" Bird b. 1791, m. Philip Turney, d. 1873, bur. Old Turney Cemetery in Addison, Somerset, PA.

Barbara Frazee b. 1878, m. John Henry Turney, d. 1964, bur. Addison, Somerset, PA.

Thanks for any help you (or another reader) can provide.

all the best,
