 Biography: Baird, L. M. 1831 - [ Book-keeper Clothier ]

Born in Spencer County, Ky., September 22, 1831. His father, Stephen Baird, a Virginian, early moved to Kentucky, there married Mrs. Sarah Pierson, nee McDonald, a native of that state, owned a plantation worked by slave labor, and was prosperous. Selling his farm, he distributed some of his slaves among his children, took some to Vigo County, Ind., whither he moved, and gave them their freedom. Purchasing a tract of land near Terre Haute, he settled there in 1833, and remained until his death six years later.
Seven years after his father's death, at the age of fifteen he accepted employment as a clerk, and remained so engaged in various positions until October, 1851, when, yielding to the excitement caused by the rich discoveries of gold on the Pacific coast, in company with Robert N. Gilmore, he went to California. Returning to Terre Haute in the spring of 1853, he entered the clothing store of Samuel Mack, the next year, he embarked in the clothing business for himself at Worthington, Green County, Ind. At this place, on Christmas day, 1856, he was united in marriage to Miss D. H. Blount, who, two years later, passed away, leaving a little daughter six months old. In May, 1859, he was married a second time, to Miss Ann E. Blount, a sister of his first wife.
In April, 1861 that he moved to Evansville and accepted a situation as book-keeper with W. M. Aikman & Co., at 220 Upper Water street, remaining in that capacity until the summer of 1865, when the firm failed in business, Mr. Baird buying the stock, etc. In September, 1865, he formed a co-partnership with George H. Start, under the firm name of Baird & Start, which was dissolved after nine years of successful operation. For fourteen years past the business has been continued by Mr. Baird alone, thus making more than twenty-six years of occupancy of the same building, first as bookkeeper and then as proprietor.
Mr. Baird's second wife died in January, 1873. She was the mother of nine children, five of whom died in infancy. On December 25, 1873, his marriage to Mrs. Mary Peterson occurred. She was the mother of two children at the time of his marriage, since which six more have been born.

 Biography: HENRY F. BLOUNT

Henry F. Blount left his mark on Franklinville long after he had actually left here.
From 1846 to 1848 Henry worked for William Smith who was then managing the store owned by Lorentus Salisbury. At some point Henry was apparently refused a raise in pay. As a result he left Franklinvlle, going to the Evansville, Indiana area.
By 1888 his company, the Blount Plow Works, was well established and he began the annual practice of holding a banquet for his employes and their wives or sweethearts. This he did for the purpose of maintaining good management - employee relations. Eventually he came to hold that event on the first of May because that was his birthday.
On May 1, 1908 at the annual banquet he announced to his employees that henceforth they would be paid a full day's wages for a nine hour day instead of being compelled to put in a ten hour day as had been his previous policy.
Not long before that occasion he had written a letter to his former Franklinville employer, William Smith, which contained the following comment: "The stone in my brook of life, which changed the channel of it, was the refusal of you to pay me ten dollars per month while clerking in the store."
Mr. Blount by that time had amassed a large fortune. This had not gone unnoticed by those in Franklinville who remembered him.
In 1915 Henry, now a resident of Washington, D. C., received a letter from Senator Samuel Spring of Franklinville. The letter concerned the efforts of the town's residents to build a library and asked that he consider contributing to it. Eventually Henry responded that he would contribute $5,000. It was his intention that this should start the project which required the purchase of a lot (and the removal of the house upon it) on North Main Street. He requested that the new building be named The Blount Library.
Upon receipt of Mr. Blount's reply an application was made to the Carnegie Corporation for a contribution to aid in the construction of the building. Carnegie responded with an offer of $2000 contingent upon the town pledging a certain yearly amount for the maintenance of the library. The town fathers agreed, and the dream of a library was realized.
It is doubtful that Andrew Carnegie and Henry F. Blount ever met ..... yet both contributed to the construction of the Blount Library which was dedicated on May 10, 1915.

 Biography: Baird, L. M. 1831 - [ Book-keeper Clothier ]

Born in Spencer County, Ky., September 22, 1831. His father, Stephen Baird, a Virginian, early moved to Kentucky, there married Mrs. Sarah Pierson, nee McDonald, a native of that state, owned a plantation worked by slave labor, and was prosperous. Selling his farm, he distributed some of his slaves among his children, took some to Vigo County, Ind., whither he moved, and gave them their freedom. Purchasing a tract of land near Terre Haute, he settled there in 1833, and remained until his death six years later.
Seven years after his father's death, at the age of fifteen he accepted employment as a clerk, and remained so engaged in various positions until October, 1851, when, yielding to the excitement caused by the rich discoveries of gold on the Pacific coast, in company with Robert N. Gilmore, he went to California. Returning to Terre Haute in the spring of 1853, he entered the clothing store of Samuel Mack, the next year, he embarked in the clothing business for himself at Worthington, Green County, Ind. At this place, on Christmas day, 1856, he was united in marriage to Miss D. H. Blount, who, two years later, passed away, leaving a little daughter six months old. In May, 1859, he was married a second time, to Miss Ann E. Blount, a sister of his first wife.
In April, 1861 that he moved to Evansville and accepted a situation as book-keeper with W. M. Aikman & Co., at 220 Upper Water street, remaining in that capacity until the summer of 1865, when the firm failed in business, Mr. Baird buying the stock, etc. In September, 1865, he formed a co-partnership with George H. Start, under the firm name of Baird & Start, which was dissolved after nine years of successful operation. For fourteen years past the business has been continued by Mr. Baird alone, thus making more than twenty-six years of occupancy of the same building, first as bookkeeper and then as proprietor.
Mr. Baird's second wife died in January, 1873. She was the mother of nine children, five of whom died in infancy. On December 25, 1873, his marriage to Mrs. Mary Peterson occurred. She was the mother of two children at the time of his marriage, since which six more have been born.
