My great grandparents, Samuel A. BAIRD and his wife Elizabeth MCCREARY had a residence on one of their farms at the SW1/4, SW1/4, sec.6, T20S, R17E in Reeder Township, Anderson County, Kansas. Samuel raised corn and black walnuts on his several land holdings. I have a number of records about Samuel, but data about Elizabeth is scanty. She was: b.
