Marcus Lafayette is the son of Wilson and Elizabeth Baird Baird. His parents were 1st cousins so that is why the same surnames. Marcus had 6 sisters and 4 brothers and also, 1 half brother to my current knowledge. They are:

...FULL SIBLINGS...
Sarah Emaline Baird 1841
William Thomas Billy Baird 1843 1924
Nancy Caroline Baird 1844
Mary Jemima Baird 1846
John Wilson Baird 1848
Tennessee Elizabeth Tennie Baird 1850 1881
Martha Jane Baird 1851 1851
Robert Clinton Baird 1853 1931
Noah Franklin Baird 1854 1854
Frances Malisa Baird 1856 1870
...HALF BROTHER...
John Wilson Baird 1864 - 1948

On 2 Jul 1862, he married Mary Elizabeth "Mollie" Bishop, in Milan, Gibson Co., TN. They had 2 girls and 4 boys. They possibly had another boy but that research is still being done. The verified children are:

Alice Elizabeth Baird Newhouse 1863 1945
William Monroe Baird 1866 1940
Marcu DeLafayette Baird 1869
Garland Mourning Baird 1871
Ottis Ulrich Baird 1875 1877
Jettie A Baird Belew 1877 1933


They moved to Oklahoma some time after 1880 and I will add that information as I find it. Marcus preceded his wife Mollie in death and she moved to Wood's County later and lived with their children. She is buried in another cemetery connected below in Wood's Co.

Rest peacefully Markus...
