Prudence Baird

Google “Prudence Baird” and you’ll find that she’s buried in the Routh Cemetery in Collin County, Texas. Quite shocking until you realize that entry refers to Prudence Elizabeth Baird born in 1843, and who died a mere 25 years later, poor dear. The other Prudence (Grace) Baird is not rotted -- yet anyway -- and can be found alive and well in Brattleboro, Vermont, where she writes for the blog, and makes lists of things she wants to do when she grows up.
