    Bessie (Laird) Fletcher was my great aunt.  I am trying to find any connection between the Pennsylvania Laird linneage that she documented and their ancestors in Northern Ireland and/or Scotland.  To the best of my knowledge, my direct ancestors, a James (b ~1686) and Jane Laird (and possibly their sons William and Hugh) emigrated out of Ireland to Philadelphia (and then on to Pennsylvania) as early as 1729 or as late as 1737 (less likely).  They were likely preceded to the New World by their children James (Jr), John, Mary and Martha.  Some genealogy sites have James and Jane marrying around 1728 in Ireland, but this would have been too late to have grown children preceding them to America.

    Does anyone have any information on this Laird lineage?

    Does anyone know of any birth or marraige records on the Lairds in Northern Ireland that would be available this far back?

    If anyone can help, please contact me at claude.m.laird@gmail.com.

    Thank you for this web site
