The Ancestors of Vickie Beard Thompson

Notes


Hugh BAIRD

NOTES: Hugh received a land grant (date unknown) which he conveyed to William Baird. He appears a few other times in other land records of Lancaster County, Camden District in South Carolina. He left Lancaster in the early 1790's and was in Abbeville at least by 1797.

CHURCH RECORDS: Hugh and Adam were members of Cedar Springs Church congregation in Abbeville.

CHURCH RECORDS: There was a Hugh, Simon, John and Adam Beard/Baird who signed a petition to have Reverend Alexander Porter preach at Cedar Springs Associate Reformed Church on 1 March 1797. Reverend Porter asked to be released from Cedar Springs to go to Kentucky and this was granted in August of 1814, they left in September with 34 members took wagons, and livestock and headed for Kentucky. (This was from book entitled Destiny of the Scotch-Irish an account of a Presbyterian Migration 1720-1853 by H. Leonard Porter III, From Ballybay, Ireland to Washington County, New York to Abbeville District, South Carolina to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Preble County, Ohio to Randolph County, Illinois and the Central Illinois Prairie.)

NOTES: I believe Hugh is the father of Simon and John. But I still do not have any proof yet.

Robert Matthew MCKINNEY

I believe Robert Matthew McKinney is the father of Catherine and Robert. But I still do not have any proof yet.

NOTES: It appears from these records, that Robert moved his family from Kentucky to Hamilton County, Illinois sometime between 1841 and 1848. Before 1830 the name was spelled BAIRD. From 1830 on, it was spelled BEARD. This is true for most of the family.
