I am a descendent of Thomas Jefferson Baird and Dianna Thomas. They are my great-great grandparents. TJ Jr was my great-grandfather. David Duane was my grandfather. His siblings were Thomas Oraldean, Lois, and Warren Herbert. The pictures mentioned by jamike80 are of that family and she has graciously shared them with me.
Thomas Sr. was a veteran of the Civil War from Ohio. There was a large groupof the family that moved to the Cuba, Kansas area in the early to mid 1870s.
I knew little about my grandfather's family until I joined ancestry. I knew his family and where he was born, etc., but not much before that. It has been amazing to find out so much, yet I am always thinking of my late grandfather and how much I would love to talk to him now.
I would love to make any contact with the descendants of TJ Baird Sr., especially those from Oraldean, Lois, and Herbert. Thanks.
