Sarah Beard or Baird--it's spelled both ways--was born February 27, 1779 in Pennsylvania, to David and Eleanor Baird/Beard, and died May 05, 1855 in Fleming County, Kentucky. She married James Staggs 20 September 1797 in Mason County, Kentucky. I have scattered references to David in Mason County at my website at http://littlecalamity.tripod.com/Leavell.html
Some "Pennsylvania" memories turn out to be Maryland, so I wouldn't rule out a birth there.
Can anyone identify David and Eleanor Beard/Baird and provide some background on them?
