|I will gladly transfer a memorial to you if the person you are requesting is a family member within the stated four generations. I also welcome corrections and additional information. I ask, however, that these be sent through the link at the top of the memorial page that states other information. I like being able to view the memorial while editing. Please provide source information for information that is not on the stone. This helps reduce emails regarding where the information came from (especially if it conflicts with someone elses) and helps fellow researchers follow the clues. It is also much easier to fix things when I get the information that way, as I get a direct link to the memorial. Thank you for understanding.|

I would like to request the transfer of #21100869 and #21100876 as they are my great grandparents. My mother is from Worcester and everyone else is laid to rest in St Johns. Years ago Protestents could be buried in St Johns. Please consider my request. Thanks Penny

|Jenn O.||RE: Fernwood Cemetery|
There are two Fernwood Cemteries, one in Lansdowne, Delaware County, PA and one in Royersford, Montgomery County, PA.
There is no town called Fernwood. The notes on the Fernwood (Delaware County) page indicate the mailing address is Lansdowne, PA which is correct...at best Fernwood is an old neighborhood name, but I've never heard anyone use it.

|Adele Just||Baird at Auburn Cemetery|
I have left this message at the Find A Grave site for Rural Cemetery at Worcester County. The same message applies to the Baird records at the Auburn Cemetery. Vital records for these Baird people appear at Leicester, Auburn, and Worcester.
Someone or more than one researcher has joined together some Baird genealogical data that is quite erroneous on FindAGrave.
I don’t know if you are one of the Baird researchers for this record or not. I would like to know where the “research” supporting the change to the Baird entries for Rural Cemetery and Auburn Cemetery came from.
I descend from Daniel Baird who was born at Leicester, MA, in 1742, and his parents were Thomas Baird and Elizabeth. No middle names in records—EVER.
Someone has changed the Thomas Baird of the original FindAGrave record for Auburn cemetery to Thomas D. Baird. The original FindAGrave record was as it was published in the Vital Records for Auburn in 1850, as it was also for Elizabeth Baird. All other Baird people at the Auburn cemetery and in the Vital Records for Auburn are of this same Baird family.
Someone has changed Elizabeth Baird (whose maiden name is STILL unknown to researchers ) to Elizabeth Susannah Walker Baird. They were actually two separate women, each married to a man named Thomas Baird, and each Thomas Baird being born coincidentally in 1708. One in Woburn, MA, and the other probably in Northern Ireland.
The Daniel Baird record in Rural Cemetery has errors in it. And Aaron Baird has no relationship to my Daniel Baird but is related to the Thomas Baird of Woburn 1708.
This was all researched and sorted out between researchers of both of these Massachusetts Baird families in the late 1990s and the early 2000s. All of the Rootsweb e-mail for the BAIRD and BEARD distributions lists is still in Rootsweb archives and can be (and should be) accessed to sort out the reality.
There was a Thomas Baird who was born at Woburn in 1708. He was orphaned and raised (or adopted) by Carter at Woburn. He was later at Mendon, MA, and married Susannah Walker. They had a family of children and this Thomas Baird family settled in various small towns in Berkshire County: Beckett, Otis, Pittsfield.
This Thomas Baird couple and family was NEVER at Worcester / Leicester / Auburn. My Thomas Baird and Elizabeth, his wife, were at Worcester. The problem began with the fact that THIS (MY) Thomas Baird was ALSO born in 1708. It is believed that he was born at Ulster in Northern Ireland and came to MA in 1718 with the first group of settlers from Ulster. Their farm at Worcester was on land that was later legally set off by a petition as a town called Leicester, so they could build and have a church nearer to them. As the region grew in population, the land that their farm was on was again set off to what was called first Ward and then Auburn. The name of Ward was often confused with the name of another MA town (Warren?), so the name was officially changed to Auburn.
All of the Baird burials at Auburn are from my own particular family of Baird people, from Thomas and Elizabeth, to various of their children and grandchildren.
None of the Baird people buried at Auburn are from Thomas Baird born Woburn 1708 and Susanna Walker who were at Mendon, MA, and then to Berkshire County.
Aaron Baird does not belong with the Thomas Baird couple who were at Worcester / Leicester / Auburn.
And the Thomas Baird and Elizabeth Baird buried at Auburn, MA, are NOT Thomas D. Baird and Elizabeth Susannah Walker Baird. The relatives of Thomas and Susannah are at Berkshire cemeteries. They were never at Worcester / Leicester / Auburn.
I was quite amazed to see how these FindAGrave entries had been distorted in order for someone to fit their Baird people in SOMEWHERE. It really is incredible. I can’t believe that the person in charge of these Baird FindAGrave entries made these changes to the entries.
I will be willing to work with you to correct these FindAGrave records. If you cannot do it, please refer me to someone else who can. Otherwise, I’ll have to work with FindAGrave to get it sorted out.

No need to make change, I have added the memorial numbers on some of mine.
I just want others to be able to get the correct information....that's all.
Again, there is no need to change yours, others will be able to figure out whats correct and whats not.
Thank you for responding.
William Rosenau senior is my Great Great Grandfather and his Grandson David Rosenau(before he passed which includes emails and letters of correspondence) gave me the information and I do have death certificates from the Westport Town Hall along with information from the Westport Historical Society. Hope this clears up your answers. For those that are researching, I just thought that they might like the correct information but thank you for responding.
