MOSES BAIRD, born Dec. 1, 1794 in PA, died Dec. 7, 1874 in Fayette County, PA. He married in 1820, RACHEL BEAL(BENJAMIN BEAL & ELIZABETH OSBORN) born Oct. 9, 1796, died Nov. 10, 1880 in Fayette County, PA.

Their children:

1. SAMUEL MILLER BAIRD, born 1821 in Fayette County, PA. He married MARGARET DRIBBLE, born about 1820 in Fayette County, PA. They had two children.

2. AVIE ANNE BAIRD, born Feb. 16, 1824 in Fayette County, PA, died June 12, 1843 in Fayette County, PA. She married THEDORE VANKIRK, born Jan. 22, 1819, died Aug. 22, 1891 in Fayette County, PA. (If these dates are correct, she must have died at a very young age, not long after they were married. There are no children listed.)

3. ELIZA JANE BAIRD, born 1826. She married J.C. WHITNEY. I have no children listed for them.

4. JEREMIAH PIERSOL BAIRD, born Oct. 9, 1828, died May 26, 1901 in Fayette County, PA. He married on Jan. 15, 1857, MARJORIE MARTH FINLEY, born Oct. 25, 1835, died March 25, 1902 in Fayette County, PA. They had 14 children.

RACHEL BEAL BAIRD'S sister, MARY, was married to JEREMIAH PIERSOL, so MOSES & RACHEL named their 4th child for RACHEL'S brother-in-law.

5. SARAH ELIZABETH BAIRD, born in 1832. I have no husband or children listed for her.

6. GEORGE WASHINGTON BAIRD, born in 1835. He married SARAH GATES. I have no children listed for them.

Norma, that's about all that I have on RACHEL BEAL & MOSES BAIRD'S descendants. As near as I can figure, RACHEL must be my 4th great aunt. My grandfather was LYMAN BEAL of Menallen Township, Fayette County, PA. The BEALS lived for many generations in Menallen Township. NANCY BEAL STAFFORD HAMERNIK (BEAL is my middle name, STAFFORD my maiden name and HAMERNIK my married name).

I have a NANCY BAIRD b. abt 1788 who married JOHN AKERMAN b. abt 1784. married in 1809. They lived somewhere near Harrisburg PA when WILLIAM was born, maybe Cumberland Co. or Dauphin Co. I suspect that NANCY is somehow related to MOSES BAIRD but I can't place the tie.

The AKERMAN'S moved to Morgan Co. Ohio in 1815. I know a lot about WILLIAM and some on MARIAH and JANE but nothing on son JOHN and almost nothing on JOHN & NANCY AKERMAN. Do you have a possible link?

There were 4 children:
1) MARIAH b. 1808 - Maybe from a previous marriage
2) WILLIAM b. 1810
3) JOHN b. 1812 - Maybe
4) JANE b. 1813

The MOSES BAIRD b. 12/1/1794 in Fayette Co PA d. 12/7/1874 m. RACHEL BEAL b. 1798 in Fayette Co PA

I found a MOSES BAIRD in Fayette County PA - 1790 Census. This family included three people:

(1) white male over 16
(1) white male under 16
(1) white female over 16

Also found - ALEXANDER BAIRD, DAVID BAIRD, JAMES BAIRD, ROBERT BAIRD, & WILLIAM BAIRD.
ROBERT BAIRD was on the same page with MOSES BAIRD - but separate household.
In 1800 census - PA - Westmoreland County - I found a MOSES BAIRD - over 45 years old and head of house - living alone.
Also found on same page - CHARLES BAIRD - (over 45 & head of household - with 4 others - children I think.
In same county, there was HESTER BAIRD - head of house - over 45 - with 2 other females.
Also, JAMES BAIRD - over 45 & head - w/3 males and two females.
WILLIAM BAIRD - with wife and two young sons.
Another WILLIAM BAIRD - on same page - probably WILLIAM BAIRD SR - with wife - 3 sons and 1 daughter.

In PA - 1810 Census - Westmoreland County - MOSES BAIRD is gone (dead?) but did find:

CHARLES BAIRD - Page 106 - Derry Township
IRWIN BAIRD - Page 97 Hempfield
IRWIN BAIRD - Page 116 - Unit Township
JAMES BAIRD - Page 106 - Derry Township
ROBERT BAIRD - Page 106 - Derry Township
THOMAS BAIRD - Page 106 - Derry Township
WILLIAM BAIRD - Page 109 - Derry Township
WILLIAM BAIRD SR. - Page 106 - Derry Township

In PA - 1840 Census - Westmoreland County - found:

ALEXANDER BAIRD - Pg 149 - Allegheny JAMES BAIRD - Page 335 Derry Township
JOHN BAIRD - Page 329 - Derry Township
JOSEPH BAIRD - Page 230 - Fairfield
PETER BAIRD - Page 291 - Franklin
SAMUEL BAIRD - Page 334 - Derry
THOMAS BAIRD - Page 337 - New Alex.
WILLIAM BAIRD - Page 342 - Salem Township
WILLIAM BAIRD - Page 330 - Derry
Also - 1840 PA - Census - Fayette County -
found JOHN A BAIRD - Page 258 Luzerne

**I haven't physically looked at the census microfilm - for PA 1810, or 1840 "YET" - that's where I will start when I go back to the library.

No luck in Kentucky - I tried 1820 and 1840 - no MOSES BAIRD there.

I am always amazed at how much these people moved around - as slow as the travel time was back then, it's amazing.

I also searched for MOSES BAIRD in Arkansas - thinking he might have followed his son, JOHN ARNETT BAIRD - and the other ARNETT family members, but didn't find him there either.

Well, thanks again. I'll search Massachusetts and Ohio next -

Kind Regards, MAE BAIRD SHEFFIELD
