Can you give me the names of Elijah E. Baird's children? I'm trying to find the parents of Abram (or Abraham) Baird/Beard who was born about 1804 in Canada. He married Elizabeth Gifford. (I'd love to figure out her parents also.) After Canada, Abram lived in Niagara County, New York, then later in Huron County, Ohio, then finally in Steuben County, Indiana. I am finding the same migration patterns with other Beard and Gifford families who also lived in the same counties at the same time, but I haven't found anything concrete linking Abram to Elijah E. Baird. I'm hoping you can tell me if one of the names of Elijah's children was Abram or Abraham.
Incidentally, Abram had eight children, and two of his sons were Myron Beard and Erastus Beard. In 1860, Erastus Beard is living with Ananiah Gifford and his wife Jane Beard (the daughter of Elijah Beard Jr).
Hope to hear from you!
