Eliza Baird was born in July 1851 in Trigg Co. Ky and died after Jan 5, l920 in Missouri.
In the 1870 census in Trigg Co. Ky Blodgett and Margaret
are found with Eliza 19, William B. 17- Elisha 15- Thomas 13- Jefferson 9- and Beauregard 6. Blodgett is listed as
a forest worker. At this period in history we had lots
of iron furnaces in the area and I believe he work providing wood for these. Several of the children have already left home. Eliza is my 2nd greatgrandmother.
I have met family of Elisha, and Beauregard Baird on the web and we have shared information. What fun!
Hope this helps.
