About Magdelene Jonasson Byrd

After Andrew Bird [Byrd] and Magdalena Jones were first married, they lived in the predominantly Swedish community at Morlatten near Hopewell Village and present-day Birdsboro, PA. Andrew was a pioneer settler in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Jost Hite's patent dated October 21, 1731, gave Andrew Bird the right to settle near New Market, VA, in the Shenandoah Valley. It is probably that he moved to that place prior to the granting of the patent. This conclusion is based on the fact that Andrew was an appraiser of the estate of Swain Rambo , who died at Cacoosing before Nov. 7, 1730. Andrew and Magdalena eventually settled within a mile of Swain Rambo on Smith's Creek in what is now Rockingham County, Virginia. Andrew died in 1750 in the Shenandoah Valley. Andrew is called Lt. in some family references.

1744 - Lieut Andrew Bird was commissioned Captain, 28 February1744. Harrison relates the tradition that two Byrd brothers from the James River started on a trip north and in passing through the Shenandoah Valley decided to make their home there.

Magdalena Byrd (153129554) We have no proven death date for Magdalene Jones Bird, but she was still living in late February 1750/51 when she and her eldest son Andrew Bird, Jr. filed a petition in Augusta County, VA, to administer the estate of her husband Andrew Bird. Both Andrews were buried in the Bird family cemetery at Craney Island, their home on Smiths Creek in (now) Rockingham County, Virginia. The Bird's Craney Island house is still standing today and the cemetery was located nearby. Magdalene is probably buried there with her family, but the cemetery was destroyed many years ago. We know only the markers that were still in existence in the early 1900s, and those, too, are now gone except for a couple of foot stones with initials A.B.
