"The families of John RUDDELL and Andrew BIRD were neighbors in Augusta Co., VA., and witnessed each others' documents. Mounce BIRD married Clara RUDDELL, John RUDDELL's daughter; and John named them in his will. It is probable that John RUDDELL's sons, Cornelius, Stephen and George married respectively, Ingabo, Mary, and Magdelene BIRD, daughters of Andrew, and that Andrew BIRD's son, Amos BIRD married Sarah RUDDELL, dau. of John. Andrew BIRD, according to Wayland, was son of Abraham BIRD of Calvert Co., Md., and was not related to the prominent William BYRD family of Virginia. The Rev. Twyman WILLIAMS, late of Hampden-Sydney, a descendant of Andrew BIRD, did considerable research on the family and planned to publish a BIRD genealogy, but died before he accomplished that. I understand that he furnished the BIRD data for Wayland's HISTORY OF SHENANDOAH COUNTY .
The above records have him as son of Abraham Bird and Cornelia Cooke. . Abraham was his brother.
I believe most evidence has him as son of these parents, Andrew Thomas Bird & Mary Ewing.
