- Sep 4, 2009Dear Helpers,
We believe many of our Bakers from Greene Co died young as a result of some epidemic, some between 1850 and 1860. I have made some notes below. The information in bold regarding Elijah Baker was given to me by Allen Churchill long ago. I would appreciate any help. What we are trying to do is go one generation farther back. In other words, who was the father of Elijah Baker, William Baker, Bryant Baker, Willis Baker, Jesse Baker, and James Baker of Greene Co. Did they have one father? Are they at all related? A Benjamin Baker lived in Greene Co before these people are listed on the census and could be the father of some of them. We just need a clue!!! Also a mystery is a Lewis Baker who appears in some of the records for Greene. Also a Lemuel. I think some of these Bakers could be related to Frederick Baker of Lenoir. Also, in a Lenoir Co history book I read that an Abraham Baker of Lenoir had 13 sons. Good grief. He could
be the father of all of them. I don't know which Abraham Baker this is, but I'm assuming it's not the one born in around 1800 who lived in Pitt County. This is an older Abraham Baker, perhaps the minister. Maybe this is an Abraham Baker who moved away. I just don't know.
Sherod May who married Sarah Baker. Who were Sarah Baker's parents?
J. F or T. May who married Alice Baker. Alice was the daughter of Elijah Baker and Mariah Hobbs. Alice was born June 1, 1867.
Eliza Jane Baker, daughter of Elijah Baker and Mariah Hobbs, married, I think, a John Clemment/Clemmons, a tailor from Wilson County. Only one child survived them. Susan Clemmons. Susan signed the mother's death certificate in 1916. John Clemmons, the father, died young. Eliza Jane Baker was born in Greene Co.
Also, Daniel Swinson and Nancy Baker had Martha Swinson in 1869. Martha was born in Greene Co.
Any info on any of these would be appreciated.
