descended on both sides from Scotch ancestry, although the

BYRD and McCLINTIC families have been established in this

country for many generations. The BYRDs date back in the

history of Bath County to 1750 when John BYRD, the pioneer

of the family, came here from Pennsylvania and took up

land on the Jackson River. Here he was living comfortably

with his wife and six children when they were surprised in

1756, by a savage raid of hostile Indians in which he lost

his life and his widow and the children were taken as

captives by the Indians to the Valley of Ohio. Eight

years later the white settlers made a raid on the Indians

and brought back to Bath County the only surviving member

of the family, a son, also named John who thereafter was

known as 'Indian' John. Having grown up among the

Indians, he had been taken into the tribe, and had

embraced many of the savage customs, among others that of

wearing rings in his ears and nose. He came with the

members of his own race very unwillingly, and on the

return made two abortive attempts to escape. With his

return to Bath County and settlement on his father's

homestead, he gradually lost his longing for his former

captors, and became a useful and respected citizen. He

married a member of the HAMILTON family, and one of their

sons, Andrew H. BYRD, became one of the most distinguished

men of Highland County, of which he was the founder, as

he, then a member of the House of delegates, introduced

and carried through the bill creating this county. --- He

traded the family property on Jackson River for Byrd's

Nest a fine property of 457 acres at the conjunction of

Bull Pasture and Cow Pasture, from the CAMMERON's in 1837,

and there he continued to reside. During the War of 1812

he served his country as a soldier. He married Elizabeth

CAPITO of Franklin, Pendleton co., VA, who died in 1886,

at the age of ninety-one years, one month and one day,

having long survived her husband, who passed away at the

age of seventy-five years. One of his sons, Maj. John T.

BYRD, the father of Judge BYRD, was born on Jackson River,

below the Fassiborn farm in Bath County, VA in May 1828

and died at Byrd's Nest in 1912.---" See Bruce's,

live I shall be 59 the 24th of next May. I have been a

Methodist preacher 38 years, and I am now in the 15th year

of my itinerant life. Four years I belonged to the

Kentucky Conference and a little over ten years in the

Missouri Conference.

"--- I have eight living children. One son died in

his 20th year ---. My youngest boy Jesse is in his 18th

year. My two oldest daughters are married well and living

in Ky. My youngest daughter is teaching in the Marvin

Institute, Chillicothe, Mo. ---

METHODIST, as you saw my name in it. --- When you write

again please give me some information about Uncle

Valentine's Estate. Yours Truly, Jesse BIRD."
