Laird from Antrim, Ireland
Posted by: Bruce Kretser (ID *****7464) Date: January 29, 2012 at 16:48:03

My gr-gr-grandfather is Samuel Laird. I've been researching years for him and have finally found him by accident, in a number newspapers from Canada.
This is some of the information that I have found.

Samuel Laird:
b. June 15 1839, Co. Antrim, Ireland.
d. October 23, 1917, Acton, Canada.
He marry Sarah Donaldson, marriage date unknown.
Sarah Donaldson:
b. August 15 1856, Londonderry, Ireland.
d. December 9, 1946, Wabasha, Minnesato.

They came to Canada, July 11 1871.

They had seven children:
Jennie (Jane)
Samuel (gr-grandfather)

One of the newspaper article, stated that Samuel was a member of the Irish Constabulary. He would tell everyone of his adventrouw time with them. I would love to know more of this. Where he was station and the time ranger of his service.

Now I need to travel further, in finding more of him and his parents and Sarah's parents.

If anyone has any information of them and their family, would be appreciated. I would love to share what I have along with what you have.

Thank you
Bruce Kretser
