Query Archive #10

Ran across your site and am the son of a Kentucky Baker, Raymond Everett (b.1916-d.1996), grandson of Dennis Albert (b.1887-d.1968). Was curious if there were any links that might correlate with this obscure branch of the Baker Tree.
Thanks in advance,
Larry "Bear" Baker

I am searching for my Great-Great-Grandparents Martin and Margaret (Provience) Baker. No information is known on them. Their son was my Great-Grandfather William Albert Baker, supposedly born in Mill Springs, Missouri, on July 5,1854 and married Margaret Gansner in Jefferson County, Missouri, on Sept. 18, 1879. William and Margaret Baker are buried on private land in Danby, Missouri. The 1880 Census for Jefferson County, Missouri, lists William and Margaret Baker with William Albert and parents being born in Arkansas. Either Mill Springs, Missouri, or Arkansas is incorrect. Martin and Margaret (Provience) Baker do not appear in any Missouri Census that I can find. Are they really from Arkansas? If anyone has any information concerning Martin and Margaret (Provience) Baker, please send E-Mail and if I obtain any information on this family, I will share it.
Thank you.

I am searching for information on the descendents of William Baker b.1775 Guilford, N.C. and Elizabeth Boaron(or Brown, not sure which), m. 5 Apr., 1810 in Franklin Co., Ga. William was the son of John Baker and Susannah Perkins. He was in Cobb Co,. Ga in 1850. His son, Absalom was granted license to operate a ferry across the Chattahoochee River near Atlanta @ 1850. 6 Flags over Georgia now sits on their homestead. William & Elizabeth's other son, Jackson John Baker and his wife, Bithy are my ggg grandparents. Nothing much is known of John..He shows up on census records, but there is no record that I have found of any marriage...I feel that he may have been "outcast" so to speak from the family, maybe because of his indian wife..If anyone is researching or has any information on any of this family I would love to hear..I am willing to share all information I have..

I am looking for information regarding my husband's great grandfather, Francis M. Baker, who was born in Ohio in 1848, and his parents, John Baker(born in Maryland)and Catherine (maiden name unknown, born in Pennsylvania). Francis married Sarah Ellen Parker, daughter of Nathaniel Parker and Margaret Klee, and had three children, Margaret Catherine, Melcena, and Alfis Elwood. (Alfis Elwood was my husband's grandfather). Francis and his family were enumerated in the 1880 U.S. Census in Allen County, (Monroe Township)Indiana. In this census the census taker mistakenly listed Alfis Elwood as Edward. Francis died between the late 1800's and early 1900's in Indiana. His wife, Sarah Ellen, remarried and moved to Louisiana, where she lived out the rest of her life. I would appreciate any help in procuring information about Francis, and his parents, John and Catherine.
