I'm looking for information on William BIRD who married Isabella LOONEY in 1857. William was born in 1835 in Canada, lived in NY as a child and then moved to New Diggings, WI in 1854. He and Isabella settled in Darlington, Lafayette County and had several children: Charles H., Huldah, Belle, A. Lincoln and Willie Arthur.
If he is the William BIRD that I think he is, his parents were originally from Cumberland, England. They moved to Quebec, Canada around 1832 and then to Truxton, NY around 1850.
I am also interested in whether there is any connection with Isaac BIRD (born 1825 in Cumberland, England) who married Mrs. THOMPSON. Or with Joseph BIRD (born 1832 in Canada) who married Mary ROBINSON (born in Cumberland, England). Both of these individuals lived in near New Diggings in Lafayette County.
