  • Notes 

    • Appears to be the only son who left Barren Co as a young man for a few years in the late 1820’s and early 1830’s. He may have gone to Missouri “to have a look” as some of the Chapan cousins were treking westward by then. Bird returned to Barren Co and on July 21 1834 married Mary (Polly) Brown, aged 16 years. By 1850 they have 2 daughter and 3 sons. Although the tract of land that Bird bought from his siblings uupon his fathers death was the “Chapman Far,”, Bird never seemed to do very well. His wife died shortly after 1850 and he and the children moved north to Three Springs in Hart Co, where he is listed as a Farm Laborer.Bought 165 acres of his fathers land from his brothers and sisters called “Sinking Branch”. This was probably the farm where their parents had lived.

      Found in 1850 census in Barren Co. Children's names in 1850 census
