I have photos of decendants of Alexander Baird and Elizabeth Jennings. Alexander lived in Richmond Co., NC at some time. He was the father to James, John, Thomas, Miles, William Jennings, Wilson (our line), Seldon, David, and possible others. Wilson was born in NC but later moved to Dyer Station, TN. Would like help to identify photos. Most date before 1900.

I'm looking for info on Zebulon Baird (1764-1826); married Hannah Erwin. They lived in NC and had at least 2 daughters. One was Mira Margaret (1802-1878), married David M. Vance (1792-1844), had at least one son, Zebulon Baird Vance (b.1830 in Buncombe County, NC-d.1894 in Asheville, NC) who became Gov. of NC. "Other daughter" married Col. Alfred Hunter from NC who fought in War of 1812, and they had at least 3 sons born in Buncombe County, NC: Alfred, John, and James Marvin (b.24 Dec 1829, 5 months prior to his cousin Zebulon Baird Vance). James Marvin Hunter is my great-great-grand-father. These 3 Hunter boys came to Texas, possibly through TN. Primarily looking for siblings of Mira Margaret Baird Vance. Any info would be helpful. Thanks!

I know a little about the Baird family in Dyer. I also have pictures of Robert Baird and family taken around 1900. Baird and my family married each other way back then!!!

Hi Carolyn - I just read your message. Alexander Baird was my ggggrandfather. My line goes through James. If you have not been in contact with John C. Baird, I suggest you email him. He has the Baird line traced back to 1675. His email address is

I am descended from Seldon Baird (born 10 March 1791 in Richmond Co., NC), one of the sons of Alexander Baird and Elizabeth Jennings. I have the family tree and some photos from that point down to myself through the Baird line. My line settled in Wilson Co. Tennessee.

Let me know how I can help you and confirm information that I have.

Since the posting I am responding to is 4 years old, I don't know where you are with your info. Have some info published in book "Baird and Beard Families" 1918 on Myra Margaret Baird Vance's siblings if you are still interested.

I am descended from Josiah Baird b.1811 TN, and Eliz. A. Henderson (m. 1835). They had 4 children-Violet, William, Mary and Lemuel. Eliz. seems to have died before 1850, and Josiah married again and had more children. They were in Rutherford Co. TN. Do you have any information on the parents of Josiah or Elizabeth?
