I live in San Diego, California and conduct research on historic homes for a local company. We are hired by homeowners looking to get their home historically designated. I'm currently researching a San Diego home that was briefly owned (for one month) in 1925 by William Wallace Bird and Faith Amilla Markel Bird. I would appreciate any and all info (and photos) anyone may have of Faith.I know she was born in Lafayette, Indiana in either 1891 or 1893 to Asa Earl Markel and Margaret Ellen Stewart (or Stuart) Markel. Faith married William Wallace Bird in Knoxville, Tennessee 1912. He died in a plane crash in San Diego in 1928. Any other info about Faith would be great. I write bios on all previous owners / occupants of the homes, and the homeowners absolutely love reading about them.
I found a couple of very old forum posts on Faith by a Matt Bird, who I believe may have been Faith's grandson.I tried to respond, but both emails got bounced back to me.If anyone knows him, please pass on my e-mail address to him.
