Birdie was the daughter of John Har­ris.

In 1904, she was a pri­ma­ry school teach­er in Beu­lah (later re­named Car­ter), Ok­la­ho­ma. She taught in the first Ho­ly Ghost school in Ok­la­ho­ma, named Beu­lah Home of Em­man­u­el’s Bi­ble School, Beu­lah Col­o­ny, Ok­la­ho­ma.

The school was found­ed by mem­bers of the Ho­li­ness, Pen­te­cos­tal, or As­sem­blies of God den­om­in­a­tions. While she taught there, Ro­bert Win­sett was the school’s mu­sic teach­er, and the two later mar­ried.

In 1910, they were liv­ing in El Pa­so Coun­ty, Tex­as. As of 1920, they were in Ham­il­ton Coun­ty, Ten­nes­see.
