My Baird linestarts in Ward/ Auburn/Leicester, Wocester Co, Ma with Thomas and Elizabeth BEARD.I find 4 sons and 1 daughter. ( Daniel, Issac, Thomas, John and Margret) One of thier sons John, and his wife Sarah Earle, moved to Rutland Co, Vt in1792 and there the name changed to BAIRD. My line runs thru David and Hannah Keller, then Wolcott K and Mary Ann Olmstead then Wolcott and Caroline Mellissa Durkee then Fred Baird and Jennie McLaughlin. They all stayed in Rutland or Addison Co VT until the WWII .
If anyone is working with these Bairds/Beards or the other name lines please contact me. I would be happy to exchange notes. I have a fairly good record of all these Bairdsthru the mid 1850s
