The Memoirs of Elizabeth T. Baird
"They were young: the husband only twenty-four, the wife but fourteen. He a lawyer poor in purse...The wife had for the first time left her home to live among strangers. She was of a French family and did not speak English."
Thus began Elizabeth Baird's first-hand accounts of life in Green Bay; from traveling by canoe or sleigh, to dances at Fort Howard and interacting with Indians. Henry and Elizabeth were influential in the growth and the development of a thriving community.
Her daily life recollections from 1824-1886 are one-of-a-kind glimpses of early Green Bay published in the Green Bay State Gazette in 1886-1887.
