Looking for anyone with possible clues on my maternal grandparents, Henry Bird/Byrd (bn 18 Sep 1884 in Wayne Co., N.C.) and Elizabeth `Lizzie' Ross (bn ~1903 in Brodhead, Rockcastle Co., Ky.) during their time spent in Letcher County. I'm hoping to find a new clue that could lead me to kin that would have been there in the early twenties.
I have located a death record for an infant male child of theirs, Albert Bird, who was born on 16 Aug 1922 in Jackhorn, and died 30 minutes later. I'm hoping to discover new information that might lead me to other family members that were in Jackhorn...which is a daunting task, to say the least. :)
Since the death record does show that Albert was born prematurely, it's possible that they were just passing through town when this heart breaking tragedy occurred.
I have gathered limited information on them in Campbell and Anderson Counties (Tennessee), but would like information on how they would have been connected to Jackhorn and/or Letcher County, Kentucky.
Thank you for your time.
