Elijah E. Baird

Elijah E. Baird

I've hit a wall, I can get back to Elijah E. Baird, born 14 Sept 1764 in Scotland. I found the name "Jane" listed under whom he may have been married to...and I have a listing of his children, many of whom ended up in Quebec to live. His first children, however were born in NH and VT, which makes me think he immigrated to the US and not to Canada...although as much as he moved around it's hard to tell. I know that Baird could have been Beard in Scotland...and the "E" in his name may be "Elyat" as one of his sons is listed with this name...but that is just an educated guess. Any help to find Elijah's birth place and/or his parents would be greatly appreciated!

Surnames: Baird, Beard, Horn
I'm not sure if anyone has been able to get past Elijah 1764. His son Elijah Jr. married a Lucy Horn. Her fathers birth is unknown at this time, however her mother was born in Vermont. The Horns also migrated to Canada around the Standstead - Sutton, Brome East Canada area. I find that interesting that both families would migrate north. After doing a blanket search, I found 7-10 Horn people that were born in Vermont but by the 1850's were all living in Sutton, Missisquoi, East Canada, just north of Standstead. I'm assuming more research is needed within Canada.

Surnames: Baird Beard Gifford
Hello,
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!
