Arren Husbands-Tillie Reichenberg, Mississippi

  of 175

My Gmother was Eva Mae Husbands Baird. Her father - Arren Edward Husbands (b.10Feb1850, d.1Oct1939), and mother Tillie Reichenberg (b. 13Jun or Jul1881, d. 3Dec1964 {my 5th b'day, ironically}). Tillie's mother, Augusta, was a Reichenberg by birth, confirming, apparently, my father's belief that Tillie was illegitimate. Augusta married Furman B. Clifton 5Jan1901. Eva Husbands married my grandfather, John Rupert Baird, II, from which came my father, John III, and they lived at Riverview, a plantation home on 300 acres in Baird, MS. Eva divorced my gfather and remarried a Scott (no children). Riverview is still there, as is Rupert Baird Road and Baird Road, all in or around Baird. Tillie was born a Jew, but as far as I know, Eva died Episcopalian. My father and I, as well as the Bairds were very much Episcopalian. Most all of this info is culled from hand written records of the time and old newspaper clippings from the eras involved. Ruppert "Rupe" Baird
