My direct line First decent we found is John Baird who married Mary Barnart Bedent in 1600's. William A Baird who married Elizabeth Clarke in 1800's. Also Bedent Baird who married Mary Ann Jane Welch in 1800's. Most of our family is from western NC around Asheville. I did find where Bedent III and Zebulon II Baird were one of the first settlers in Asheville and sold lots of land to make the town square in Asheville.
I am the 9th generation in this line. Are you on this line anywhere?
