Notes


51. George F. Baker , Capt.

He served six terms in the Revolutionary War. One term he spent scouting for Indians. He lived in Wilkes County, NC about 25 years after the War. He then moved to Clay County, KY where he lived about 20 years. In 1827 he moved to Morgan Co., IN. Revolutionary War Pension approved #S 17249. He received $47.77 per year.
In the DAR Patriot Index, Page 29, it has George Baker, Captain/Scout N.C.


52. Bolling"Bowling" Baker

Was a Rev. War Soldier. His brother George and former brother-in-law William Morris, witnessed his application for pension on March 4, 1831. Pension approved #S 12950. He received $60.83 per year. Since he was from Wilkes Co., NC (and enlisted from that location) the pension number refers to a North Carolina resident's pension.
Bolling Baker was living in Morgan Co., In in 1833.


208. Bowling Baker , Jr.

From the Dickie Diary:
"Bowling Baker, Junior son of Bowling Sr. was bound to Dough White to learn salt making and killed Morgan Dezarn with a single barrel pistol with 2 balls in it. He fled the county and never returned."

Also:
"Sometime before he went to Florida and died, Cousin Gilbert Baker came to my office in McKee and told me that Bowling Baker, Jr. was a brother to his one great, my two great grandfather, Rubin Baker. That Bowling, Jr married and live on the head of Bear Creek. His wife died and he buried her on that creek. Then he went over tn Beech Creek and got to courting a woman and got in a quarrel and killed Morgan Dezarns and then he got on his horse and rode to Missouri where he married and raised another family.
From other information I have come to the conclusion that this happened, the killing of Dezarns, about 1845."


53. Elizabeth "Eliza" Baker

Robert Baker, Jr in his will stated: I give my well beloved son in law James Anderson the other half of my land and all wood land. Likewise the other half of my household goods and moveables and sixty pounds of current money of Virginia.


James Anderson

Robert Baker, Jr in his will stated: I give my well beloved son in law James Anderson the other half of my land and all wood land. Likewise the other half of my household goods and moveables and sixty pounds of current money of Virginia.


54. Samuel Baker

Information from Minnie Graham Bull's research: In his will of 1757 in Rowan Co., NC, Samuel Baker named his wife "Eliza" (Elizabeth) and his children Robert, John, Mary, and Margaret.

Information compiled by Bull's proves conclusively that Elizabeth Thomson married Samuel, son of Robert Baker (Jr.)
In a subset discussion of this family, Bull's cited Ray, who wrote that he was never able to locate any of the children named in Samuel Baker's will. Bull's, however, located all these children in Prince Edward Co., VA., where they as minors were living with relatives or close friends of the family. It may seem strange that the minor children of Elizabeth Thomson Baker did not live with her in NC after she remarried, but they did not.

Samuel Baker was originally buried at Baker Cemetary with his father-in-law John Thomson who died 1753. The remains of this cemetary were moved to Mooresville, NC when they made Lake Norman in early 1960's and moved to Centre Presb. Church Cemetary in back left corner.


Elizabeth Thomson

Rev. Thomson (father of Elizabeth) died in North Carolina at the home of his daughter, Elizabeth and her husband Samuel.
Elizabeth Thomson Baker married 2nd Charles Harris. This second marriage occurred in North Carolina; two sons were born of this marriage, the youngest was born in 1762. Information from Minnie Graham Bull's research.


213. Robert Baker

Information from Minnie Graham Bull's research: In 1762, in Prince Edward Co., VA., Robert Baker (son of Douglas) was appointed guardian of Robert Baker, son of Samuel Baker, deceased. Robert son of Samuel had by then (at age of about 20) married Mary Graham, and he needed a guardian for some legal business. These last named men are the Baker cousins (once removed, and descendants of Rev. John Thomson) who married the Graham sisters, Margaret and Mary.


214. Mary Baker

From Minnie Graham Bull's Research:
In 1761 in Prince Edward Co., VA., Mary Baker, daughter of Samuel Baker deceased, chose Samuel Wallace as her guardian. (A minor had to be over the age of 14 to select the guardian)


215. Margaret Baker

Information from Minnie Graham Bull's research: In 1761 in Prince Edward Co., VA., Margaret Baker, daughter of Samuel Baker, deceased, chose her uncle, Richard Sankey, as her guardian.


216. John Baker

Information from Minnie Graham Bull's research: In 1761 in Prince Edward Co., VA., Robert Baker, (son of Douglas) was appointed guardian of John Baker, son of Samuel Baker, deceased, and his uncle, Richard Sankey, was his security. John was under the age of 14.
