I am a music historian researching musicians in Whitley County in the 1920s and '30s. I would like to make contact with descendants of Louis, Elmer and Connie Bird, who had a stringband and made recordings around 1929-31. Louis and Elmer (his son) lived in the Pleasant View community. Also associated with them were Jack (John B.) Hicks of Pleasant View, Andrew Jackson Ball, a Whitley County schoolteacher, and a Charles Dykes. Any leads or suggestions will be very much appreciated. Please contact me at <tonyrussell@bluetone.demon>. Thank you.
