Thanks for looking into this and thanks for the suggestions for further research. Anna Maria KURTZ Baird may have been born in York Co. Her father, John Kurtz (1772-1857) certainly was (it was mentioned in his obit). John Kurtz was the son of John and Anna Maria DIVELEY Kurtz. Anna, their dau., and Daniel were married in Somerset, where her father had become a lawyer and eventually a judge. Daniel would not have appeared in the York Co. census as head of household, because he left home in 1814 at age 18. He enlisted in William Meredith's Co. PA Cav 1st Brigade, 2nd Co., in Aug. of that year. This was organized in York Co. His date of birth is pretty solid as it is mentioned in both his obit and on his tombstone.

I hope that someone may have further information on the children of Thomas Baird (Beard). Incidentally, Daniel was also sometimes identified as Daniel Beard. Information on the Kurtz family would also be welcome--I have become discouraged by the great number of distinct John Kurtzs in York.

Again, thanks for the response.
