Name of the Day

Name of the Day:

Victory Birdseye
A delegate from Onondaga county to the 1821-22 New York State Constitutional Convention. He appears to have spoken five times, and served on one committee.

I would guess that this is either a man born in or around 1783, or a man born to a proto-evangelical household. My money is on the former.

I do like early 19th-century names.

That's a great name. I always liked John Greenleaf Whittier, myself.

Names are just so bland these days.

We have a "Silence Belcher" far back in our family tree. That one cracks me up every time I think about it.
