Note from Glenda McWhirter Todd:
According to the records of the George Stanford Cemetery, John Kirk Byrd is buried there and while he is indeed buried there, I think his tombstone is covered up with dirt from where a farmer plowed the land right adjacent the cemetery and a little over on it. The tomestone they have him listed for is actually the "wife of John Kirk Byrd" and has her birth date and death date. I can understand why they did that because the "wife of" is almost illegible on the stone. The following is the information for both of them and you can see it's her dates on the stone rather than his. Even if you can add a notation to this effect I would appreciate it. I noticed this when I was down there and Dr. Evans had the same thing in the book he wrote, I believe. Thanks.

Elvira Caroline Byrd, - 26 September 1831 - 21 September 1905
John Kirk Byrd, 13 September 1827 - 07 February 1891
