I am in search of information concerning Thomas Baird and his wife Elizabeth of Auburn, MA. Thomas has a tombstone in Auburn indicating he d. April 29, 1782, aet 75, making him b. 1707. Elizabeth's tombstone, also in Auburn, shows she died April 23, 1790, aet 82, making her b. 1708. I have not been able to determine Thomas' parentage or Elizabeth's maiden identity, and wonder whether ANYONE has. It is possible that Thomas is identical with the person of that name born August 22, 1708 at Woburn, MA to Thomas and Hannah Baird. Woburn records show that Thomas and Hannah Baird had at least two children born there: Thomas, Jr. and Hannah. But as the birth date is one year off, and since in my experience, people in that timeframe DID tend to know when they were born, I'm hesitant to presume the connection. Any assistance anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.
