Do you think my Andrew Baird and your John Baird were perhaps brothers?

Andrew Baird (my great grandfather)

Andrew was born: Nov 30, 1833 in I believe Moville (some notes say Malin). He married Mary Jane Davenport (b. in Culdaff Jan 18, 1843) on Jan 12, 1860 in Culdaff and they lived in Ballynally, Moville after they were married. They moved to the US before 1900 with 8 of their children. Their children were:

Thomas "Tom" (1860-1946)
Elizabeth "Lizzie" (1862-1934)
Katherine Anne "Kate" (1864-1949)
Rebecca (1866-1943)
Mary Jane (1868-1931)
Rachel (1870-1960)
William (1873-1961)
Isabella (1875-1875)
Andrew Davenport (1877-1942)
Sarah (1879-1958)

His father was Thomas Baird, who I believe lived in Moville at least during the 1850’s, died there perhaps in 1880 at age 79. And was married I understand to Rachel McMurray in 1831. Reports say Thomas was born in Magherabane (? though I believe family notes have it spelled Magherabalte). I am less certainly about Thomas Baird & would like to know more.

I am also curious if anyone knows if Andrew had any siblings, and/or any additional information about his parents / grandparents. If anyone has connections to this family – I’d love to know.
