Robert Baird Sr.
The Baird family arrived in New York on 6 July 1866 via the ship Arkwright. One daughter died prior to their overland journey. Overland company records list only Robert Sr., as head of household. However, the notation that he purchased 3 1/2 adult food rations indicates that his family is with him during this portion of the trip as well. Robert Sr., is not listed on the ship records. The reason for this is uncertain.
