This early Ohio History mentions a Newpaper owner named Baird, but gives no first name. Anyone know where I can find out which Baird owned the Record Herald in 1834?
"It now became a Democratic journal and nothing further is now known of its history, other than that in the autumn of 1832 the office was sold, passing into the hands of S. F. Yoeman and S. Lydy, who immediately commenced the publication of the Washington Herald, which was still a Democratic organ, Mr. Yoeman doing most of the editorial work. For a time the paper had the double name of Herald and Fayette County Register. The name of S. Lydy appeared at its head as proprietor, while that of William Hill appeared as printer and publisher. Its columns were very short of news items, but well filled with sundry kinds of advertising. In June, 1834, it was in the hands of Hill & Baird as publishers and they were champions for the Whig cause. It gave an account of big Whig mass-meetings at the old court house. In November, 1834, the Herald (third volume) was in the hands of Robert R. Lindsey, as publisher and printer. It was still a Whig organ. It continued publication until about 1835 and then suspended."
