US Senator. Born in Ireland, he immigrated to the United States in 1856. He rose to prominence through banking and the lumber business, and served a time as Camden County sheriff. In 1910 he had an unsuccessful run for the United States Senate, losing to Senator James E. Martine. However, he was appointed as a Senator from New Jersey to the United States Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Senator William Hughes, serving from 1918 to 1919. He was not named as a candidate for re-election to the seat, which Senator Walter Evans Edge was subsequently elected to. He died in Camden, New Jersey in 1927. His son was Senator David Baird Jr., who is interred in the same Mausoleum.
