I'm a descendant of John Birch and Elizabeth Turner from Shropshire, England. Their son William moved to America with his son, and I am a descendant of that family. John Birch is my sixth great-grandfather. I am 1/16 cherokee, but I don't know if that would be of any help to you. I am looking for other Birch history from John's ancestors in England. A relative who lives in England is helping me to find anything in this area if anyone is interested in this line of Birches.
