It looks like one David who married Eleanor went to Vermillion, IL? I have been reasearching an Evan Baird b. Fleming, KY 1800, per son David Winfield Baird's death certificate. Evan was in St. Claire, IL by 1830s. On 1850 census, Evan was b. KY 1800. I believe thie is the Evan, whose father, David Beard d. 1820 in Fayette, OH. Penelope was David's widow and may have been Evan's step mom. Evan sold his land in Fayette to John Beard / Baird before Evan appeared in St. Claire, IL.
