Looking for any information on Egbert Benson Birdsall, b. 10 Oct 1797 in Dutchess County, NY, graduated West Point, stationed throughout the West frontier, d. 2 Jan 1845 in St. Augustine, St. Cloud Co. FL. His parents were Lewis Birdsall and Patience Lee.
Believed married to a Mary Wilcox, in NY. One daughter, Mary Birdsall possibly born in NY, married John Wilson Stump of Harford Co MD, lived in Houston, Harris County, TX, died in Galveston, Galveston Co. TX.
Any information on Egbert, or wife Mary Wilcox, or other children, or daughter Mary Birdsall Stump. She possibly had a child in FL (Kate Stump?) around 1879, and returned to Texas.
Tracing any alleged connection to Richard Henry Lee or Francis Lightfoot Lee, brothers who signed the Declaration of Independence.
