You may be in the wrong county. If they lived near 12 mile road, that would not be Hamtramck. That would be Oakland or Macomb County, depending on how far east or west.

If you are certain that they lived in Hamtramck, try emailing the librarian at the Hamtramck library and see if they can point you in the right direction to find the judges and sheriffs.

Here's the link to their library:

Here's the Hamtramck Historical Commission website.

Hope this helps.

If not, email me a reminder and when I get caught up, if you still haven't found them, I will try to help you.

Right now I am swamped, but can try later.

Surnames: Cutler , Poulet, Teachout,
Dad said he lived there between 1923 and 1929 his name was Lee Marvin Teachout. He only remembers 12 mile road. Talk to him yesterday and he did say it was a long ways away. He did not go to High School. Only Grade School.

He was adopted by the Cutlers and then his named changed. Anna Cutler maiden name was Poulet and was from
Canada.

He worked for her brother at Poulet Plumming at 16.

and Andrew C Bairad (not Barrett) was a relitive that was a Sheriff in Detroit and later a Judge.

I'll check the 1920 census to see where he lived as soon as I free up some time. Hopefully that will be in the next few days. Please remind me because I am very busy and I will forget the things from the boards. I put emails that I plan to lookup in an email folder so I have it to refer to.

Email me at renee@pconline.com and give me all the information that you have posted in your messages and tell me what information you would like to end up finding.

Surnames: Baird,
Is this the man you are talking about?

From the Political Graveyard.

Baird, Andrew C. of Detroit, Wayne County, Mich. Democrat. Delegate to Democratic National Convention from Michigan, 1936. Burial location unknown.

From History of the St. Andrew's Society of Detroit: 1849 to 2000
By Fred Dunbar Wessells

Unemployment Compensation Commissioner; Andrew C. Baird (member
2209, initiated May 5, 1941), Wayne County Sheriff;......

The committee roster for the 104th Games held on August 20, 1953, reads like a history of Detroit and the
Society. Some of the more notable persons included: Allan Farnham (field secretary), Wallace Temple
(legal counsel), Judge David C. Vokes (announcer), Sheriff Andrew C. Baird (grounds marshal),

Here's the link. He is towards the bottom of the document. You can find him by clicking on the binoculars and typing baird then click find or ok, whatever the button says.

http://www.highlandgames.com/history.pdf

You can find many more like this by going to www.google.com and typing in Judge Andrew C. Baird michigan, then when most of your links aren't really him, take away Judge and then put quotes around "Andrew C. Baird" michigan, then "Baird, Andrew C.", etc....until you have found all you can. That's all I did.

When I have more time, I will check the online resources from my library to check for biographies on him.

Yeppers thats the Man Andrew C. Baird. I read what you wrote to my dad on the phone and he said thats him. He also said Jacob used to call him Cousin. But he never knew if he was or not. He was very glad I found him and said thank you for your help.
I thank you, too .
Now I'll go see if I can find a connection to all this.

Great! I always like it when I have helped. That took me less than 5 minutes to find too.

If you need any more help while trying to connect them, email me at renee@pconline.com and I will do what I can. If they are 5 minute searches, I can do them just about anytime.

Found an article today on Andrew C. Baird while doing obit lookups so I printed it out. There is a picture of him too.

I am going to try to attach it to this message, but I don't know how well that works here and if there is a size limit because I have never done it before.

Unfortunately, I forgot to write the date and page number, but because of the date of November 3rd on another article on this page, I think this was from an obit I found in the Detroit News on Thursday, November 4, 1948 pg. 66. This article, I believe was on the page before, so if I remember correctly, it would be on page 65.
