Looking to trace family of/information on Hugh Baird (b:1872, Donegal, Ireland)

Hi there

I'm trying to connect with any family members of Hugh Baird, a labourer born in Donegal, Ireland on Feb 10th 1872. His parents were Henry Baird and Margaret McGarvey.

He was married to my 2nd Great Grandmother Hannah Tinney (McFadden) after her 1st husband died. They got married and ran a pub in Raphoe (Donegal, Ireland) in 1905 (married March 7th).

The reason I'm trying to connect is to complete a story. Story goes that Hugh left Hannah for the USA at some point after they were married and she didn't hear from him again. There are lots of Hugh Baird's on the passenger lists so, I'm not sure which one is the right one (if any - maybe he never went to the USA, who knows).

Just trying to join the dots really. All information welcome!

Thanks
Jo

Update: since original post, I have found out that Hugh went to Canada (Toronto) and married there (Hattie Maud Doten). sadly Hatty died 4 months after they married and I have lost Hugh once more (can't find any further records).

Therfore am posting this thread on the Canada forum also.in case anyone there recognises him. Thanks in advance!

Try having a look at the 1901 Irish census, Both 1901 and 1911 are available free, this may give you further details of other family members.

Had a quick look under 'Browse census' there is a William Tinny married to Hannah with Catherine McFadden working in their pub, may be worth a browse for Raphoe Town.
Baird's - just 2 families for this address.

Wow! Thanks!

Hannah was my grandmother. After William died, she married Hugh Baird.

What site are you using to see the census?

Thanks
Jo

Hi Jo
go to Irish census 1901 or 1911, luckily both freely available. I just had a quick browse and found some of your family. www.census.nationalarchives.ie select browse by county
