Interestingly enough, I am a descendant of John Bird.
My grandfather Baxter Bird's father was John Bird b.28 Nov 1812,Bedford Co.VA. Baxter is buried in Kanawha Co.WV and John is buried in a family Cem. in Putnam. Co, WV. This Baxter & John came to WV from Franklin Co.,VA.
Of those buried in the Cem. you refer to in Putnam Co. all came to WV after the Civil War. I have been to this cem. many times.
John's father is also John b.16 May 1784 Loudoun Co VA, His father John married Jane LNU.
