As I was reading through the Birdsong family tree, I noticed
no one listed that Harriet, 'Hattie' Birdsong and her cousin Samuel J. Birdsong
were married. Also not listed, was who Rebecca J. married, (William Hooper
Caffey) and who Joseph J. married, nor either of the siblings children. I
don't know if it was done on purpose? Or you simply didn't know.
Also, regarding Jefferson Jarrad Birdsong, aka J.J., he did not die March 14th, 1882. He died January 3, 1894. His wife, Jane, died March 14th, 1882. Her grave stone says she died at her home, in Hinds county (Bolton) Mississippi. J.J. may have died in Edwards.

Josie, born in 1874.
Mattie A, born in 1872.
Withers, born in 1879.

And one infant, born in 1880, name is currently unknown.
