William's father was James C. Baird, mother Eliza Ellen Jones. I found James C's father, James Baird and his mother, Jane (I think Jane Martin) who were married 3/22/1821 in Brown County, OH. This James is 54 in 1850 census of Brown County, OH and place of birth looks like PA, but his son shows his parents birthplace as VA in the 1880. I don't know which one is wrong? If this James was from Va, he could be related to the William Beard married to Eliza Irwin in the 1850 Clermont Cty census. I think my Willian Irwin is somehow named after this Beard family. Any info????
