I have been trying to make the connection to Thomas Baird. I have an old family story that was submitted to the California Historical Society, old probate records, etc. My Alexander Baird immigrated to Canada in 1835. He followed the Scottish Naming Tradition and his sons (in order) Robert b. 1823, William, abt 1829, Alexander, abt 1832, and Thomas 1834. Family story (and based on my research) William, Alexander, and Thomas immigrated from Canada to Australia (around 1853), and then came to California. Thomas was the last child born in Scotland and is named after a brother of Alexander Baird. William was a teacher in Canada/Australia and all of the sons were farmers.
Daughters names were Jennet, Agnes (known as Nancy)Margaret, Elizabeth, Mary and Jane (last were born in Canada). The birth order of the first three girls has not beem confirmed.
