I am tracing my Baird line.  I have got to John B. Baird b.1666, Aberdeen, Scotland d. Apr 1755 Topenemus, Monmouth City, NJ.  Son was Andrew Baird 1700-1773.  Wife was Mary Bedent according to family sources.  Looks very similar to your John Baird and Mary Bernard Osborn.  Would like to discuss this with you.  John B's father was John m. Janet Banantyne to my source.  No further details.

Believe I have found my answer in a professional researcher's answer to another site question.  "....the birth of John has been confirmed as the 4th of March 1666 [not 1665] in the parish of Liberton.co. Midlothian and not Aberdeen....".  Says John m. Mary Hall then Mary Bedent.  Guess he had a thing for Mary's.

From what I fould, I believe the name Mary Bernard Osborne is actually John's wife grandmother Mary Bernard, who married Mordiqie Mordecai Bedent, Roger Townsend and Richard Osborne.  Hince when she died she Could have went by Mary Bernard Osborne.  The records back then were lacking and mishapps happened.  Also one person rights something it begans a chain reaction of people is thinking it be the truth. However the two John in question are the same.  From what I read both birthdays are up for debate.
