Very definitely we are related! My grandmother Mary Helen Bird married William Newman Todd.
I have a newspaper clipping from the Rockland Courier Gazette that reprinted the article by Helen Burpee Larsen about the tapestries. Do you have a picture of any of the tapestries? Do you know where the big one is? I do know that the one of Moses and the 10 commandments ended up in my grandmother's hands and then went to a cousin and was lost in a fire.
Any info you could provide me with would be greatly appreciated. We do have a stool top cover that Hanson G. Bird did.
Please use this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks, and I am overjoyed to finally make contact with you!
