I am tracing my Baird geneaology and through family sources have got back to Andrew Baird 1700-1773. His father is John B. Baird. My source says 1666, Aberdeen, Scotland - Apr 1755, Topenemus, Monmouth City, NJ. My John B. seems to have married Mary Bedent. This is so close to your John Baird m. Mary Hall, I would like to talk to you. If this is the same person, I could extend my tree farther back as mine ends at the second John with no details provided. Update 4-22-2013. Seem to have found my answer in a post to someone else on a different site by a professional Scottish researcher. John did indeed marry Mary Hall THEN Mary Bedent.
