Surnames: Byrd, Tilghman
I am a descendant of Sherwood Byrd and trying to find out who his parents were. I know that he first appears in the Lenoir County, NC census in 1840. He is listed there in 1850. He is still in Lenoir in 1860 next to his son Nathan Byrd. In 1870, he lived with his daughter Catherine and son-in-law John Grimsley in Greene County, NC.

Sherwood married Penelope Tilghman about 1828 either in Lenoir County or nearby.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Sandra

Google - Old Dobbers - go to surname projects - Byrd. This is a history written by Dr. Charles Holloman, dec but I don't know how accurate it is.

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, it does not list Sherwood/Sherrod/Sherrad. He is probably the son or grandson of one of the people listed in project.

Thanks.

Which woman would this be and which descendant of Sherwood? I am descended through his son Nathan and grandson John Francis Byrd. John moved to Georgia.
