Hi Ellen,

I think we might have some common ancestory through the family and would like to talk more in comparing notes of the Baird family and perhaps more.

My name is Kathryn Alexander and I live in British Columbia Canada. My great grandmother was Mary Baird and her father David Baird was from Montrose. She married Alexander Alexander and they immigrated to New Zealand. My grandfather was their youngest son and eventually settled in Canada. Most of the Alexanders are in New Zealand and although David moved there with his wife Mary Petrie I believe that they ended up moving either back to Scotland or onto Austrailia...I've lost the trail.
My mother was born a Stewart and her great grandfather was Thomas Stewart who was born in the Dundee Tayside area and he married a Jane/Jean Mollison from the Glams area before immigrating to Canada in the 1843 time frame. The name Gowie is also a name I have found in the family...look forward to sharing more info one day soon.

Best regards,
Kathryn Alexander
