I'm trying to connect with any family members of Hugh Baird, a labourer born in Donegal, Ireland on Feb 10th 1872. His parents were Henry Baird and Margaret McGarvey.
He was married to my 2nd Great Grandmother Hannah Tinney (McFadden) after her 1st husband died. They got married and ran a pub in Raphoe (Donegal, Ireland) in 1905 (married March 7th).
The reason I'm trying to connect is to complete a story. Story goes that Hugh left Hannah for the USA at some point after they were married and she didn't hear from him again. There are lots of Hugh Baird's on the passenger lists so, I'm not sure which one is the right one (if any - maybe he never went to the USA, who knows).
Just trying to join the dots really. All information welcome!
Update: since original post, I have found out that Hugh went to Canada (Toronto) and married there (Hattie Maud Doten). sadly Hatty died 4 months after they married and I have lost Hugh once more (can't find any further records).
Therfore am posting this thread on the Canada forum also.in case anyone there recognises him. Thanks in advance!
