This family tree has been generated from wills, deeds and cemetery records as well as from visits to the small Birdsall Family cemetery. There are several holes in this tree that could be filled in with additional effort. Other documents such as newspaper entries and census data could be used to verify data listed elsewhere in this blog.

Due to not knowing exactly which lineage Henry Birdsall originated from I am assigning him as first generation with the superscript of 1. His descendants will be assigned their proper generation number (superscript designation) as they appear in the tree.

A DISCLAIMER: Although my apparent interest in the Birdsall family may lend some to think I am related I must clarify that I am not.
This is the end of the series of archaeological research posts on the Birdsalls.
The next series (starting this week) will be discussing the life of a neighbor of the Birdsall family, prior to his living in New York State;
