Ackerman Story

Anna Nancy (Baird) Ackerman

In our documentation we only had Nancy Baird as John’s wife. Over the years of research we discovered that her name is Anna Nancy Baird. However, near as I can tell she never went by Anna.

In the birth record for Maria they list her as Anna.

During the early years of me researching Nancy, my thinking was that their son William and wife Keziah may have named their child Samuel Baird Ackerman after Nancy’s father. I have since gone away from that assumption.

Note: Thanks to Marsha Chadwick’s visit to Harrisburg and Lancaster we have more information and verification.

Now a bit about who I have as Nancy’s parents. John Baird and Rachael Beard. And John’s parents as Thomas and Agnes from Tyrone, Ireland. Thomas and Agnes emmigrated in 1753 to Colerain, Lancaster PA.  Nancy had seven siblings.

John Baird married Rachael Beard

  1. Francis – 1785
  2. John Allen – 1787
  3. Anna Nancy – 1788 -1854
  4. Patience – 1789
  5. Sarah – 1791
  6. Thomas – 1793
  7. Rebecca G. – 1794 – 1830

John Baird’s parents were Thomas b. 1730 in Tyrone, Ireland and Agnes.
