Supposed from family records to have been Elizabeth Thomas, though no proof of her parentage has come to light. She was still alive as late as 1831 (mentioned in deeds), but evidently dead by 1835. She might have been buried in the cemetery mentioned in a deed involving the James Abernathy farm in Rush Co., IN.
She is in the 1870 census of Davidson Co., TN with her two sons James H. and John P. Baird.
 1900 census says they had been married for 32 years, though the ages recorded for this family in various censuses are frequently inconsistent.

If Robert, born in 1785, was her youngest son, then Euphemia could not have been born much earlier than about 1740.
Some modern sources give the surname Lindsey, we are not aware of the evidence for this conclusion.
Could her maiden name have been Pidoux? No other explanation of a statement that her husband's brother-in-law was Egr�ge Jaques Pidoux (1618) seems possible. Further, there is the problem of how a house at No. 9 Rue du Temple (demolished in 1961) passed from Fran�ois Pidoux in the mid-16th Century to Jean Decristaz about 1660. Could it have passed from Pidoux to a Dutoit, and then through his daughter Marie Dutoit to her husband Jean Decristaz?
