I am interested in communicating with other descendants of Captain John Bird. I am descended through his son Thomas J. Bird. One of Thomas' daughters was Sarah Ellen (b. 5 Dec. 1852; d. 6 Oct. 1928) who married Peter Sell in Burleson County in 1870. Peter was born in Pennsylvania.
I have been researching the Bird family for a number of years and would like to compare notes and share information.
