My mother, Effie Eileen Byrd was born 1900 in Helenwood. Her father was Milton Asbury Byrd; mother was Lissie Rossiter: grandfather was Peter Bird b. abt 1820, d. 1863 and his father was Jesse Bird. I have details from my grandfather Milton on down but very little about Peter and Jesse. I have a lot on the Rossiter side. Do we connect somehow?

Milton was also my GF but by his second wife Melissa Rosser. He had two children by Melissa after your grandmother died: Dee Byrd and Effie Eileen Byrd, my mother. Milton joined the Union army when he was 13 and came down with the measles while he was serving at Chattanooga. Although, looking at his medical records it may have been a sexual desease. Jay had three brothers (the last 3 by Nancy) who all died at a very early age within about 2 years of each other.
Your grandmother died at a very young age, and the description of him, when he married Melissa was not something to attract a young woman, but he did marry Melissa. Melissa also died in her 30's and my Uncle Dee was retarded. Thank goodness, my mother was sane. It is believed that both wives, the 3 young boys and my uncle were all infected by Milton. He owned a bar and was shot in the mouth during an altercation at the bar.

Jay was my mother's favorite brother and she named her first child after him, but he died from small at the age of 10 months and is buried in Cut Cemetery along with Milton and a few others. Our youngest son's middle name is Jay as is his son and I have a nephew who also has the middle name Jay.

I have information about Peter Byrd, Milton's father. I will see if I can make up a Byrd report and get it to you either my email or snail mail. Do you have anything going back before Milton? I have a ton of info on Melissa, as she is related to the famous Hatfields, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, etc. She is also related to the Cranes who helped found New Haven, Conn., Newark and Elizabeth N.J.
