James P. Baird was a Coachman for "Sir" William Lynn the father of "Lady" Jane Lynn who James P. married about 1789 in England. They ran off to get married for Sir William did not approve of his daughter marrying his Coachman Servant.

James and Jane Lynn Baird sailed to America in the year 1782 and settled at Gettysburg, PA where they lived for some years. In the winter of 1789-90 the family removed by wagon to Redstone, PA where they built a boat and started down the Ohio River to Kentucky. At a point not far above the present site of Cincinnati, OH, Indians attacked the boat, in this attack their young son James Baird was wounded, he carried to his grave the evidence of that contest. They landed at the Falls in February of the latter year (1790) when only a few log cabins marked the present site of the city of Louisville. From there they removed to Bairdstown, KY and lived there until February 1794 when the family moved to Hartford, KY and settled there.

*NOTE* Bairdstown, Kentucky is now named Bardstown, Kentucky
