I hate AOL, I just spent 20 minutes on a message about Rhoda bird only to
have it crash.
Here is a condensed version. In Larry's book he says Rhoda is the d/o col.
William Byrd. Rhoda cannot be the d/o William Byrd III, he died in 1777 and
here are his kids. I had his DOB but lost it when AOL crashed on me. I found
it online at a site about westover plantation.
I have her as the d/o Abner Bird but no proof.
