I have a Joseph C.V. Baird that was born in 1805 in Adams County, OH and died in 1889 in Whiteside County, IL. And some other members of this family ended up in Kansas. Beings you didn't give any dates, it was hard to tell where was the connection. I didn't have a Thomas listed, but I don't think I have all of his children as Joseph had two wives. If you think this could be part of your family, please email me at Jlittle7701@yahoo.com
and make sure you put Baird in the subject line, as I delete many emails if I don't recognize the subject line or the name.
