I'm looking for Robert Amos Baird b. cir 1880 d. 1980. I found thos at http://genforum.genealogy.com/cgi-bin/pageload.cgi?brazil::b... It looks like what you are looking for.

"Alice's father was James Robinson Baird. He was born Sept. 8, 1815 in Ohio. He died between Aug. 25, 1880 and May 25, 1900. His wife was Eliza Caroline
Price. B-10/25/1820 D-May 28, 1900 Both are buried in Jackson Co, Braselton, GA. Their children included Reynold and Reginald Price Baird, as well as Alice.
James Robinson Baird was the first graduate of Davidson College in 1840. He became a preacher and a teacher. He led many churches. From 1868 to 1878 he
served as a missionary in Brazil to ex-patriot Confederate soldiers and their families in Americana, after the Civil War. In 1879, after 10 years, he had to return to
Georgia because of illness. He moved to Braselton into a house on Davis Street and stayed there until he died. He was not well, but the people in Hoschton errected
a church as a non-denominational church. Everybody used it. finally it dissolved into a Presbyterian body and remained that way until it burned. Rev. Baird was a
teacher and county school superintendent for Jackson County from 1878-1880. The school was known as Randolph Academy and was located further down the
road from his house. He died in Braselton, Ga. The house he lived in was built for him and his family by the other brothers and is still lived in."
