Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much.

I have had no luck with the marriage or the name of John's spouse.

Middle names of children include Keith and Sheridan and I tried both of those but they are probably grandparents on one or both sides. The middle name Reid comes from:

Alexander BAIRD & Christina REID
27 Aug 1841 Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland
Batch: M119754


Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

I'm wondering how accurate this is:

Death # 25017/1953 BAIRD MARGARET JANE ALEXANDER - SYDNEY

If the informant does not know the mother's name why should we believe father's name is Alexander?

I can find possible matches for KEITH if it is not Alexander. :confused:

Knowing Margaret came from Inverness is not much help.

If I had to guess: Margaret Jane KEITH b. abt 1859 Inverness :D

Regards,

Dave

He's not in Paddington & Double Bay areas.

Have been going through 1881 census for a Margaret c1859 father Alexander.
Nothing under KEITH or SHERIDAN. No luck yet.:rolleyes:

Both buried at South Head.

Hello crankypants,

Thanks.

Please try minus the Alexander.

Only other thought. Shipping records. I wonder if it might have more than just Inverness for Margaret. :confused:

Thanks.

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Another daughter:

Birth # 13550/1896 BAIRD MAY A JOHN O MARGARET J LEICHHARDT

I can't see a marriage or a death yet for May. The newspaper notice had Mae. I wonder what her middle name is.

Also the one in the E/R:

Elsie Garden - ??? No birth in NSW and didn't arrive on the vessel. ???


Ok that explains the ROACH in the death notice:

14974/1914 ROACH HARRY BAIRD ELSIE G BALMAIN SOUTH

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thanks.

I searched for a marriage for a Margaret GARDEN and didn't find one.

I looked in Qld. for any births etc... for BAIRDs and found nothing.

I can't see Elsie Garden ROACH in E/R and I can't find her death.

Damn. I've used up all my luck for today already. :2fun:

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thanks.

I've searched 1880 -1909 b* elsie john margaret and no birth for Eslie.

There is a gap between 1884 and 1896 so were they in Victoria?

1913 - 21 = 1892. :D

Dave
