Birth*circa 1746Solomon was born circa 1746 at Accomack Co, VA.1 
Anecdote*1783 Solomon Bird, Junr was listed with his father and brother in the 1783 tax list. His name did not appear on the tax list for 1787, but he did witness a deed in 1793 (Deeds 1793-1797, p. 60), after which his name disappeared from Accomack County records. It seems likely he moved to Edgefield County, South Carolina. 
Anecdote In early July 1984, Mary Frances Carey received a call from a Mr. Wider of Columbia, South Carolina. He was looking for the Accomack County ancestors of a Daniel Bird, who bought land in Edgefield County, South Carolina, in 1784 and who died testate there in 1806. He named other Birds there during the same period as Solomon Bird, Elijah Bird, and Hezekiah Bird. Mr. Wider needed information here within a few days and, with a short search, Mary Frances Carey suggested the Bird men in Edgefield County were sons of Solomon Bird. After a more thorough search of all the Birds in Accomack County, it appears even more likely they were Solomon's sons. Mr. Ralph T. Whitelaw, in Virginia's Eastern Shore (p. 1212), states that a William Lucas, of Edgefield County, South Carolina, sold Accomack County land in 1791. This land was near that which Elijah Bird bought in 1777 and sold in 1791 (p. 1213).1

Marriage*circa 1770He married Bridget (-----) circa 1770.1 
Anecdote*1769 Elijah Bird was named to administer the estate of Anseleta Bell, deceased, on 26 December 1769, giving Solomon Bird as his security (Orders 1769-1770, p. 301). Elijah Bird bought 80 acres from James Ailworth on 2 January 1777 (Deeds 1770-1777, p. 501). He bought 40 acres, plus 8 acres" where Daniel Kelly lives", from William Bell on 26 October 1777 (Deeds 1777-1783, p. 22). He and wife Bridget sold the 8-acre tract to Daniel Kelly on 25 May 1779 (Deeds 1777-1783, p. 144). On 29 November 1791, Elijah Bird and wife Bridget sold 120 acres to Major Bird for "115 pounds Current money of Virginia" (Deeds 1788-1793,p. 562). One of the boundaries was land of Solomon Johnson. After this date Elijah Bird disappeared from Accomack County records. It appears likely he moved to Edgefield County, South Carolina. 
Anecdote1777 Whitelaw, (p. 1212), states that a William Lucas, of Edgefield County, South Carolina, sold Accomack County land in 1791. This land was near that which Elijah Bird bought in 1777 and sold in 1791 (p. 1213).

Birth*circa 1755Hezekiah was born circa 1755 at Accomack Co, VA.1 
Anecdote* In early July 1984, Mary Frances Carey received a call from a Mr. Wider of Columbia, South Carolina. He was looking for the Accomack County ancestors of a Daniel Bird, who bought land in Edgefield County, South Carolina, in 1784 and who died testate there in 1806. He named other Birds there during the same period as Solomon Bird, Elijah Bird, and Hezekiah Bird. Mr. Wider needed information here within a few days and, with a short search, Mary Frances Carey suggested the Bird men in Edgefield County were sons of Solomon Bird. After a more thorough search of all the Birds in Accomack County, it appears even more likely they were Solomon's sons. Mr. Ralph T. Whitelaw, in Virginia's Eastern Shore (p. 1212), states that a William Lucas, of Edgefield County, South Carolina, sold Accomack County land in 1791. This land was near that which Elijah Bird bought in 1777 and sold in 1791 (p. 1213).1

Anecdote*1787 She was named as a daughter by Solomon Bird in his will. The 1787 tax list gives Esther Bird as head of a household, but she is not listed by the 1800 census. It is likely she was deceased or married by 1792, when John Bird was named as owner of Solomon Bird's land.

Duncan was appointed one of the trustees of the Old Messongo Primative Baptist Church based on the Church records in possession of Wm. A. Davis Jr., New Church, VA. This would explain why two of his grandchidren who died young, children of his daughter Roberta A. Duncan and her husband Ira Francis Holland, being buried in the graveyard there.8 
Will - Aunt's*June 1891John was named in his aunt's will in June 1891 at Accomack Co, VA. In her will Elitha Ann Byrd gave to John R.

Hall ½ of a bond I owe him, in the amount of $700, and that each of them pay to the trustees of the Old School Baptist Church of Messongo the sum of $25. To Sarah Fisher… To my sister Rachel Fisher… To my sister Critty Duncan… To Rachel Burton, wife of Stewart Burton… To nephew Meshack Duncan… To Eveline Davis, wife of Alfred Davis… To Elizabeth Kelly… Exec. William S. Byrd of Jacob. Jun 1891. Wit: Samuel A. Godwin, William T. Byrd. Proved 8 Jul 1892. William T. Byrd relinquished. Admin to Samuel A. Godwin. Sureties Marcellas F. Godwin, William T.

Feddeman and wife Mary A. and Melvin E. Withams. The deed shows the land was bounded on the north by Pitts Creek, on the east by George T. Collins and the county road, on the south by Parks Branch and on the west by "Miles Old Mill Pond Stream." Whitelaw shows it being the land that Robert Pitt IV and wife Catherine sold in 1793 to James Selby of Worcester Co, MD. This land became the Duncan Farm and family could have lived here, or in the area, for over 20 years before they bought it, as the 1870 census shows John Duncan was a neighbor of George Gladding, Frederick A. Tull and Asa Taylor, all residents of the Miona area..10,11
