Looking for more information on Capt. John Bird, who settled in Burleson County in 1831 with Stephen Austin. He was deeded a league of land. John Bird fought in the Texas revolution during 1836. He was later killed in a fight with Comanches (Bird's victory??) in 1839. Is there more information about John Bird in a book about him? Are there still descendants living in Burleson County? He was my 4x grandfather. Would appreciate hearing from others who have additional information.dditional information.
