    It reminds me a bit of the Polish flag. The bird is what keeps pointing me in that direction.

    I'm leaning towards Austrian. The falcon resembles the one s on Austrian crests. They usually onle have a cross bar in middle and this one has vertical and horizontal. But its still really close.

    After a little research, I have found that the Byrd family crests have three common factors in relation to this crest. First, they have an eagle in common. Second, the color red is dominate in both. And third, they have two lines that cross over centered in crest.
    Dr. Byrd was the second owner of Sisters Row. I personally feel there is too many things in common not to be of relation. Different branches of the family would create their own family crest.
    You may very well have a piece that crossed the "pond" with his family.
    I'll continue researching. I'm very intrigued with this mystery of yours.

    The crowned eagle is very much like the eagle of the Kingdom of Sardinia which was ruled by the House of Savoy. They eventually united the Italian States into the Kingdom of Italy.
