Laird Family of Missouri

 

 

(IV.) Nathaniel4 Laird, son of James3 Laird, Capt. David2, James1; born in Kentucky on 8 Mar. 1818,[1] married Mary Ann Herron, daughter of William and Martha “Patsy” (Thomasson) (Berry) Herron (Jr.), of Hopkins Co., KY,[2] on 18 Nov. 1839 in Hopkins Co., KY,[3] and they moved from Hopkins Co., KY, to Chariton Co., MO, where his brothers David and John Laird had settled a few years earlier. She was born in ca. 1820,[4] a granddaughter of William and Mary Herron, of Hopkins Co., KY.[5]

            Nathaniel Laird first appears along with his father in the 1842 tax list in Hopkins Co., KY, taxed for 2 parcels of land on Deer Creek for 200 acres and 300 acres and 5 slaves.[6] In the 1843 Hopkins County tax list, Nathaniel Laird was taxed for 2 parcels of land on Deer Creek, of 205 acres and 174 acres and 5 slaves, but his father was shown with no land, only 1 slave.[7] In the 1844 Hopkins County tax list, the last on the microfilm, Nathaniel Laird was taxed for 205 acres on Deer Creek, and his father for 217 acres and 5 slaves.[8] In 1846 Nathaniel Laird donated 2½ acres of land on Deer Creek to the United Baptist Church, and in 1848-1849 he sold several parcels of his land on Deer Creek to Jacob Van Hook,[9] Washington Chandler,[10] James Couch Jr.,[11] Matthew Harris,[12] and William H. Puryear.[13] I did not find Nathaniel and Mary Ann Laird in the 1850 federal census in either Kentucky or Missouri, but they presumably moved to Missouri in about 1849.

            Nathaniel Laird died on 12 Nov. 1850 in Lexington, MO,[14] and Mary Ann (Herron) Laird possibly remarried to a (___) Green[15] after 1856.[16] On 12 June 1851 Mary Ann Laird, widow of Nathaniel Laird, gave a power of attorney to David H. Thomason to sell her portion of her inheritance from her father’s estate in Kentucky. On 4 Mar. 1853 Patsy P. Herron, widow of William Herron, deceased, William T. Herron, of Union Co., KY, Mary Ann Laird and John S. Herron, of Clinton Co., MO, Patsey Lisman and James Lisman, her husband, of Chariton Co., MO[17], and David N. Herron, of Hopkins Co., KY, sold 202 acres of land on the Crab Orchard fork of the Tradewater River in Hopkins Co., KY, to George Yarbrough,[18] and in 1854 Mary A. Laird sold part of her interest in Nathaniel Laird’s estate on Deer Creek in Hopkins Co., KY, to Robert Green. In 1856 Mary Laird and her sons David Laird, Joseph Laird, John L. Laird, and William Laird, sold the remaining land of the estate of Nathaniel Laird to Burrel S. Ruby,[19] Thomas C. Clayton,[20] and Lysander G. Gordon.[21] She was not found in Chariton Co., Missouri in the 1860, 1870, or the 1880 federal censuses.[22]
