Birth: Aug. 11, 1854
Death: Aug. 19, 1876

Son of John and Mary (Cunningham) Baird.


Hollidaysburg Register, Wednesday, 23 August 1876:

"BAIRD - SUDDEN DEATH - Aden B. Baird returned to Gaysport, on Friday the 11st inst., the 22d anniversary of his birth, from his position as a guard at the Centennial grounds in Philadelphia, in consequence of an attack of typhoid fever. It was not at first thought to be serious, but he grew worse and worse, and on Saturday night the 19th inst., he died, after the most careful attention by able physicians and the most careful watching of a mother, sisters and brothers, and friends. He was a robust young man, the picture of health, and gave promise of a long life of usefulness. He was a moral young man, a member of the Baptist Church, a member of the Judson Bible class, and an Odd Fellow, and was highly respected by all who knew him. The home of which he was the head, filling his father's place, will miss him; the Church and Sunday School, will miss him; and his brethren of the mystic rites, will miss him. He was young in years to be thus cut off but death is no respecter of persons, age, rank or condition - and may we all so live that we may not be afraid to die. As Warden at the Jail, for a couple of years, as guard at the centennial grounds, and in the various other walks of life, he performed his duty.

His remains were interred at the Jackson graveyard in Gaysport, on Monday afternoon. They were followed by a large connection, the Sunday School and Bible Class of which he was a member, and the Odd Fellows who performed the last sad rites of sepulcher. Rest in peace and may the mother, sisters, brothers, and friends, console themselves with the memory of his good actions and that in a little while their spirits may join his in the abode of the blessed."
