Looking for information on William Bird.

I'm looking for information on William Bird. He was possibly born around 1840 in Scotland. He had a child with Alzana Prine, daughter of Daniel Prine and Catherine Bryant, on 14 September 1865 in Austin, Cass, Missouri. The child's name is Amanda Bird. I'm not sure if Alzana Prine and William Bird ever married. I cannot find a marriage record for them. The only marriage record that I can find for Alzana Prine is for when she later married James Harper in 1872. William Bird is my big brick wall. I have nothing on him, except his name and that he was possibly born in Scotland. His daughter's death certificate says that William was born in Scotland. Amanda Bird's marriage certificate names William Bird as her father. But that's all I have. I am having trouble finding out anything else about William Bird. There was a Civil War record that I found that shows a William Bird that served in the Civil War and died. But, I'm not sure if that is the same William Bird or not. Does anyone know any information that might be able to help point me in the right direction? I have tried different variation spellings. Looking him up on Censuses, etc. He seems to be a big mystery. He's my 3rd Great Grandfather and I'd love to break down this Brick Wall.
