Looking for parents of Samuel Baird

My great-great grandfather, Samuel Baird was supposedly born in 1801 in Nashville, TN, but I can't find anything to prove this. What I do know is that he first shows up living in Perry County, AL on the 1830 census living with a William Beard (Baird), probably aged 50-60. Samuel married Matilda Rutledge in Alabama, converted to Mormonism and moved to Quincy, IL in 1846 or so. Their child James Hyrum Baird, born 1848 in Quincy is my ancestor. Most claim Samuel's father was Alexander Baird from Monmouth County, NJ, some claim an Alexander Baird from Cumberland, Pennsylvania, but I have not seen any proof for either. I am wondering if the William Baird he lived with in Alabama may have been his father? Has anyone researched this line?
