July 2010: Vickie McDonald has sent new information that sounds very intriguing, but will need further documentation before it can be proven. 
I believe Sarah who married George BYRD could be a daughter of John & Lydia BARLOW.
1820 census of Perry County: George BYRD lives next door to John Barlow: 1 male 16<26 and 1 female 16<26
1830 Simpson Co Mississippi: George BIRD lives next to Henry and Lydia Barlow: 1 male <5, 2 males 5<10, 1 male 10<15, 1 female <5, and 1 female 20<30
1840 Rankin Co Mississippi: George BYRD: 2 males <5, 1 male 5<9, 1 male 10<14, 2 males 15<19, 1 male 40<49, a female 5<9, 1 female 10<14, and 1 female 30<39 Next door, believed to be brother of George: John BYRD: 1 male 10<14, 1 male 40<49, 1 female 10<14, 3 females 15<19, 1 female 50<59
1850 Rankin Co Mississippi, #505:
George BYRD, age 54 born South Carolina, Sarah, age 52, she and all children born in Mississippi, Richard, age 23, Nancy, age 20, Saun, age 16, Bryant, age 14, Green, age 12, Lydia, age 10, Susan, age 8
#504 believed to be the son of George & Sarah:
John BYRD, age 26, he and his family all born in Mississippi, Jane, age 10, born in Mississippi, and Marcelleny, age 1 born in Mississippi.
Susan BYRD, age 60, born South Carolina, all children born in Mississippi: Nelly age 18, Meldich, age 17, John, age 19, and Samuel, age 8 (Is she the mother of George, and if she is the mother of the elder John, who is the John, aged 19 in the above record? Are these grandchildren of Susan? I believe Susan's husband was also named George.
A marriage between John W. BYRD and Elizabeth WHITEHEAD on December 1832 Rankin Co Mississippi is believed to be a second marriage. Researchers said her full name was Susan Elizabeth. Their son John Wesley married Charity TOUCHSTONE.
I also believe George & Sarah BYRD had a daughter Flora who married William WATSON on July 22, 1850 Rankin Co Mississippi, who lived next door #506: William WATSON, age 26, born in South Carolina, and Flora, age 18, born in Mississippi.
Could they also have a son George BYRD living with Nathaniel BARLOW and wife Mary BYRD in 1850 Rankin Co Mississippi. If Mary and George BYRD were siblings then I believe their parents were George & Sarah BYRD.
So who were the parents of Flora who married George Washington BARLOW and Elizabeth BYRD who married Norvel BARLOW?
