"My Aunt, Lillie Baker Allen, was born on Sacker Creek in Clay County, Kentucky in 1891. She died in Lexington, Kentucky in 1987, at the age of 96. Her father, George W. Baker was born in Owsley County in 1871 and died at burning Springs in Clay County in 1912. The family, shortly after his death, moved from there. Lillie was just a young woman at the time; the love for the mountains and its people remained with her until the day she died. This lady and her remarkable memory started me out "Baker hunting.

 

Often when I talked to Aunt Lillie about her family, she would refer to them as Good Bakers, Bad Bakers. It wasn't until after her death that I began to understand what she was trying to tell me. She told me that her grandmother, Ibby Baker, was a Baker before she married. She said the Ibby was a schoolteacher, and that she went to Buffalo Creek in Owsley County to teach. Here she met and married Jackson Baker. Jackson died in 1878, leaving Ibby and their small son George. After the death of her husband, Ibby returned to Clay County and lived with her brother. She died a year later. Her son George W. Baker was adopted and raised by her brother, William Baker and wife Elizabeth Parker.

 

Aunt Lillie wrote me a letter one time about the Bakers on Buffalo Creek in Owsley County. These were the one's she called "Bad Bakers". She said her father received word from his aunt, Martha Gabbard, to come up to Owsley County, that the family had sold some land, part of which belonged to his father. His aunt went on to tell him that she was holding his part of the money from the sale for him. Aunt Lillie said; "We didn't want him to go. We thought it was a Catch! We thought they were trying to get him up there to kill him." To the relief of Aunt Lillie and the family, her father George made the trip to Bull Skin and returned home safely.

 

I once asked Aunt Lillie where the Bakers came from? She said; "They came from Liverpool England, they were gunsmiths and that they came to this country to make guns for the colonies." At the time Aunt Lillie told me this, I paid little attention. Of all the great things Aunt Lillie told me, this statement would prove the most important. She died without me having the opportunity of telling her what I learned about this unique family. So I would like at this time to share my story with you:

 

We begin our story with Abner Baker, first County Clerk of Clay County. Abner was born in Prince Edward County, Virginia, September 18, 1775. He came to Kentucky in 1795 and first settled in Garrard County where he married Elizabeth Buford. He was appointed Clerk of Garrard County in 1803 and held this office until he moved to Clay County in 1807. Abner Baker kept a records keeping book throughout his life he called his "Life Book". In this small notebook he kept records about his family. You can imagine my surprise when I read the following statement taken from this book. Abner Baker stated that there were three brothers Samuel, Andrew and Caleb, who first came to America. They were gunsmiths with a grant from the King of England to manufacture guns for the colonies. He goes on to say that his grandfather, Caleb Baker, and his family removed from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, bought land and settled in what was then called "The Backwoods" in Amelia County, Virginia on Buffalo Creek.

 

Was this just a coincident, or were Aunt Lillie and Abner Baker talking about the same Baker family? A Mr. Samuel E. Dyke, a researcher in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, finally convinced me I was on the right tract when I came across some writings. This was a report given to the Kentucky Rifle's Association in 1972. It seems that the Association had employed Mr. Dyke to do some research for them. They wanted him to see if he could find out the person or persons responsible for making the first Pennsylvania Rifles or what was sometimes call the "KENTUCKY LONG RIFLE". Mr Dyke in his report states; "We feel as though these early gunsmiths came into Chester, Pennsylvania, or New Castle, Delaware, from abroad and migrated up the Susquehanna River to where the Pequea flows into it and set up shop making guns." He goes on to say that Robert Baker came into Lancaster County Court on August 15, 1719 and asked permission to erect a gun boring mill at the mouth of Pequea Creek on his land. Permission was granted. Robert Baker and his son Caleb set up their gun shop and operated it until 1728. It was at this time Robert Baker died. His son, Caleb Baker, continued to operate this gun shop until the family moved to Amelia County, Virginia.

 

The above Caleb Baker was the grandfather of Abner Baker, first Clerk of Clay County. Although Abner Baker is the one of the most interesting of people, he is not the subject of our story. I only used his statements and those of Mr Dyke to establish the fact that some of the Bakers now living in Clay and Owsley Counties can trace their ancestor's back to these early Pennsylvania Bakers.

 

 


Abner Baker, in his "Life Book", stated that his grandfather Caleb, had two brothers, Andrew and Samuel Baker. These two brothers would prove the most adventurous of this Baker Family. In the early 1750s Andrew Baker, John Cox, Enoch Osborn and several other neighboring families in Pennsylvania set out on a westward journey. This journey eventually led them into the Yadkin River Valley, in present day Wilkes County, North Carolina. This small group of Pennsylvanians would be among the first to settle in the area.

 

Some of these people settled along the Yadkin River, others of the more adventurous nature, crossed the Blue ridge Mountains and settled along New River in what is now Ash and Allegheny Counties, North Carolina. No white man had attempted settlement here before. New River was known at the time only by it's Indian name "Saxphaw". It was here, along the south branch, Andrew Baker made his first home.

 

Andrew Baker remained in the area of New River until about 1753, He then decided to push even deeper into Indian country. He moved down New River into what is now Grayson County, Virginia, very near the North Carolina line. Here Andrew staked out a large track of land he called his "Peach Tree Bottom" track. But the next summer, he and his family were run out by the Indians. He returned to his prior settlement on New River, where he would remain for the next ten years or so. He did, however, make one other attempt to settle his "Peach Tree Bottom" track. This was in 1767 or 1768. This time he encountered another problem. In Andrew's long absence, Dr. Thomas Walker, a surveyor for the Loyal Land Company, had staked and claimed the "Peach Tree Bottom" track, for his employers. He had to now purchase a 1000 acres of his original claim before he could resettle on it again. It seems that it just wasn't meant to be. The following year, he was once again forced out by the Indians and back to his old settlement. One might wonder why Andrew was so determined to settle this particular track of land. The answer lay in what was on and in this land, more so, than the land itself. For you see, one of the largest iron ore deposits in this area was discovered on the land. I think Andrew Baker, and at least one of his sons, were involved in the Iron business. His son James Baker and he built several large iron furnaces along Cranberry Creek, a tributary of the south branch of New River. The remains of some of these Iron Furnaces can be seen even today. They were at their peek production during the Revolutionary War."

 

Robert Baker, Sr. lived in Lancaster County, PA, on Piquea Creek. He and his sons were gunsmiths in Lancaster Co., PA, in VA and in NC. They invented/developed the "Kentucky" Rifle and developed hand operated machines to cut the rifling in the barrel. From Bonnie Jean Miller Website.

 

Editors Note: It is interesting that a Thomas Anderson, Sr, from Kentucky, was with General Andrew Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans and stood next to another Kentucky sharpshooter, who shot General Puckingham from his white charger. The general thought he well out of range but underestimated the accuracy and range of the "Kentucky Long Rifle"! After the battle, Thomas Anderson walked back to Kentucky only to find that his family had moved to Dubois County, Indiana. So he just walked on over to Indiana. Two of his sons, John and Thomas, Jr, married two of my GG aunts, daughters of David G. & Nancy Brittain Brown, in DuBois County, Indiana. Byron Brown January 16, 2000.

 

Wins Battle of New Orleans:

Jackson was then ordered to defend New Orleans. Finding the city foolishly ignoring its danger, he quickly put it under martial law and rallied the citizens to prepare for attack.

To build up his small regular army, he recruited frontier riflemen from Tennessee and Kentucky and organized a force of raw volunteers--free blacks, planters, and pirates headed by the freebooter, Jean Lafitte (see Lafitte). This was the awkward force of some 5,500 that Jackson fused together.

Beyond the crude American ramparts of cotton bales lay 10,000 British regulars. These were veteran troops who had fought in Europe's Napoleonic Wars. Beginning late in December 1814 they bombarded the American defenses, setting the cotton bale ramparts afire. Between skirmishes and shellings, Jackson's men doggedly threw up earthen breastworks.

On Jan. 8, 1815, with only contempt for Jackson's amateur army, the British troops charged. It was a slaughter. Wave after wave of the charging redcoats fell before the grapeshot and rifle bullets of the grim American defenders. Shattered, the British withdrew, having suffered 2,237 casualties, including three generals. Jackson's casualties that day were only 71. (See also War of 1812.)

The tragic mistake of the battle was that it was fought after the peace had been signed days earlier, Dec. 24, 1814, ending the war. In that era of slow communication, news of the peace did not reach Jackson in time to prevent the conflict.


 

Robert Baker Sr.

 

The first of this family in America appears to have been Robert Baker who settled in Conestaga Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania.

 

This Township became Lancaster County in 1729, as this family does not appear on the tax lists of any of the other Townships, it is possible that the settlement in Conestaga was the original home of the family from their arrival in America.

 

Abner Baker, great - grand son of Robert Baker, states in his "Life Book" that this family came to America from England, and that three brothers, Samuel, Andrew, and Caleb were gunsmiths, with a commission from the King of England to manufacture arms for the Colonies. That they were gunsmiths is proven by Court records in Penn. Also in North Carolina.

 

The first record we find of Robert Baker, is the administration of his estate dated Sept. 13, 1728. Robert Baker, died without a will and his son Caleb Baker was appointed administrator of his estate; along with these original papers at the Registers Office at the Court House in Lancaster county is the Administrators Bond; an Inventory, and the administrators accounts; the Bond was signed by the Administrator, Joseph Higginbotham and Tobias Hendricks, Sureties; and witnessed by Douglas Baker and Joshua Lowe. The inventory enumerates chattel's, Harvest Crops, Live Stock, and 450 Acres of land, this was signed by Tobias Hendricks, David Jones and Joseph Higginbotham, Appraisers.

 

The account does not give the distribution of the net estate among the heirs merely the administrators disbursements of obligations, many of these were small, and among the creditors were the names of Caleb Baker, Robert Baker Jr., and Douglas Baker.

 

In a deed dated July 4th, 1741 from Caleb Baker and wife Martha Baker, to Jacob Good it is stated that part of the land deeded by them had originally belonged to Robert Baker, father of Caleb, that upon his death his personal property "could not answer to satisfy his debts". The orphans Court ordered that it be sold to satisfy his creditors, whereupon the land was sold to John Cunningham on Feb. 16, 1738 and upon Feb. 17, 1738 he in turn sold part of this tract of 450 acres to Caleb Baker, son of Robert.

 

Abner Baker in his "Life Book" states that his grandfathers two brothers, Andrew, and Samuel, also came to Virginia. Records in Lancaster County, Penn. Would indicate that there were other sons of Robert: Robert Jr., Douglas. Douglas also came to Prince Edward Co. Virginia as court records show.

 

CALEB BAKER SR.

Of Prince Edward County Virginia

 

Dr. Abner Baker of Garrard County, Kentucky in his life book, "written for the perusal and encouragement of his children and relatives, "states that his grandfather Caleb Baker (Beaker) and two brothers, Samuel and Andrew came from England in the early part of the eighteenth century; Samuel and Andrew held commissions from the King of England to manufacture fire-arms for the use of the colonies. Caleb was a farmer."

They settled within what was then Chester County, Pennsylvania. References to these and others of the Baker name are found among the early archives of Pennsylvania. The first reference found of Caleb Baker was where his name, along with other early settlers of Chester County, was attached to a petition, dated February 6, 1728-29, which reads in part:

"To the Honorable Patric Gordon, Esq. Governor of the province of Pennsylvania, New Castle, Kent and Sussex, on Delaware, and Council; - The benefit of many good and wholesome laws almost if not entirely lost and ye person who has occasion to apply to them, out to great and burdensome expense ------to be ye charges of a journey of eighty or a hundred miles, to the County town; and as we are mostly new settlers far from a market, and trade and commerce, among ourselves mostly by way of barter, money cannot supposed plentiful, --- we humbly pray you would be pleased to order a division line to be made between the upper and lower part of Chester County" (Penn. Archives, sixth series, Vol XIV. Page 268.


That part which was cut off Chester County, was named Lancaster County: where on May 18th 1748, Caleb Baker received a grant for two hundred acres of land. (Penn. Archives, Third series, Vol. XXIV, page 356)

Dr. Abner Baker also states that his Grandfather, Caleb Baker and family, removed from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, bought land and settled in what was then called, "The Backwoods" in Amelia County, Virginia, on Buffalo Creek, where his plantation was located, part of which was purchased July 20, 1748.

18th Century North Carolina New River Settlers

 

The 1778 Wilkes County Tax List indicates some of the settlers west of the crest of the Blue Ridge. It is interesting to note that there were more families in 1782, apparently several families left the area during the Revolutionary War years.( Some of the Tory Families left for more pro-British areas region west of the crest of the Blue Ridge, in 1778, was considered CAPTAIN ANDREW BAKER'S Company. William Colvard was the justice of the peace for the area. William Ray was a constable and Daniel Richardson, Andrew Baker Jr., and William Clay were appraisers in the southern part of Baker's District. In the Northern District of Baker's Company Micajah Pennington was the justice of the peace, Benjamin Pennington served as constable, Beverly Watkins, James Ward and Abijah Pennington were the appraisers in the head of households for that part of Wilkes that became Ashe:

Early Settlement in the New River Valley of North Carolina

 

ANDREW BAKER is thought to have moved into Ashe Co. NC in 1755. The French and Indian War forced him to leave the area, but he is supposed to have returned about 1765.

A study of loose papers at the North Carolina Land Grant Office gives some added information. On April 3, 1780 ANDREW BAKER made an entry for a tract of land on the South Fork which was surveyed a week later. In these papers , reference is made to " the line of his former survey " and to his " old survey ". Since it is known that entries were being made for land just to the south ( in the McDowell Co. area) in early 1763, there is every reason to believe that ANDREW BAKER had returned to the New River once the threat of Indians had abated.

 


The first white inhabitants of Ashe Co. were the hunters. It has been estimated that a hunter could earn as much as $1600 to $1700 dollars per season in hunting and trapping game for pelts. It was a love of this income and the hunt that compelled many men to live their lives on the fringes of civilization. Capt. John Cox is quoted as saying he could remember only 3 cabins from the lead mines ( Fort Chisewell) to the head of the Watauga. But the land entries of 1780 are replete with references to places such as George Collin's old camp, Martin Gambill's old camp, William Howell's old cabin, Sizemore's camp, BAKER'S CAMP, Charles Collin's old camp, and John Robinson's cabin.

 

By 1779, when Ashe developed into 2 militia districts, political power appeared to be resolving around 2 locations: one in southern Ashe in the area of Boone with ANDREW BAKER, a justice of the county court and Captain of the Militia, the political leader: and the second in the northern district centered around Penington's Mill (located on Grassy Creek just south of the Virginia border ) with Micajah Penington , a justice and Captain of the Militia, the political leader of this area. Both Micajah Penington's and ANDREW BAKER'S roles in power were short-lived. It is believed the Penington's were Quakers and were not considered ardent enough Whigs. In Sept. 1799 Micajah's estate , along with a number of friends, was considered confiscated, although there is no evidence it was ever sold. In a list concerning the status of several justices (prepared by Benjamin Cleveland, Colonel of the Militia, on Oct. 6th, 1781)only William Colvard was acting in his capacity as Justice of Ashe Co. George Morris had resigned; James Tompkins refused to qualify; Thomas Elledge, Abner Smalley and Micajah Penington were listed as Tories; and ANDREW BAKER was reputed to have taken protection of the enemy. It is not known how accurate Cleveland's judgement was concerning these people. ANDREW BAKER was appointed a road overseer in June 1782, and about a decade later both Penington and BAKER were Justices and Penington was also a Captain of the Militia.

First Settlement on the Upper New in Virginia

 

In 1765 when the Bournes settled on Elk Creek, other settlers were moving into Peach Bottom Tract near the Virginia- Carolina line surveyed for Dr. Thomas Walker, Peter Jefferson and Thomas and David Meriwether on March 16, 1753 as Loyal Company land.

ANDREW BAKER from the Yadkin is said to have been there in 1754 buying from the Loyal Company but was driven out by Indians. His first permanent settlement was in 1765. The John Cox , Ephraim Osborne and John Hahs families accompanied Baker on his return in 1765, Cox's settling opposite BAKER. BAKER soon sold land to Jeremiah Harrison, James Mulkey and James, John, and Samuel Blevins. The Osbornes located between Bridle and Saddle Creek opposite the BAKERS.

MONTGOMERY CO., VA MILITIA 1777-1799 OATH OF ALLEGIANCE

 

As require by law, Montgomery County kept a list of those persons

who took the oath of allegiance to the Commonwealth of Virginia, 1777-1779.

These records have been preserved and can be found at the courthouse in Christiansburg.

 

The first list found is that of William Davies, recorded in the following words: A List of those that had taken the Oath of fidelity before me, William Hay, Edward Jons the 29 of Aprile, 1778, Alexander Meglaclen Aprile 28, 1778, Joseph Smith free of his apprenticeship 9th May 1778, Bryan Bumton free of his servitude 22 May 1778, James Gorman Oct. 1778. (Signed) Wm. Davies."

 

The next list was kept by James McCorkle and the introduction to

the names reads as follows: "We whose names are hereunto subscribed do swear

or affirm that we renounce and refuse all allegiance to George third King of

Great Britain, his heirs successors and that, I will be faithful and bear

true allegiance to the Commonwealth of Virginia as a free and

independent State and that I will not at any time do or Cause

to be done any matter or thing that will be make known to some

one Justice of the Peace for the said State all treasons or

traitorous Conspiracies which I now or hereafter shall known

to be formed against this or any of the United States of

America."

James McCorkle was assigned to record the names of the men who swore

allegiance to the State from several companies.

Rev. War Pension Applications of SW Virginia Soldiers

 

James Cox--Grayson Co. Sept. 14, 1832. James Cox of Grayson Co. stated that he served under Capt. John Cox at age 15 or 16. as a private, and helped build a fort on New River near the mouth of Peach Bottom Creek. In 1778 and from then till 1780 he acted as a Indian spy for Capt. John Cox. The Tories , about the same time that the British were invading North Carolina, became very troublesome in the country where he was living, having very few neighbors who were not Tories, and with those adjoining the State of North Carolina frequently assembled themselves and overrun the country.

Once when his father was on an expedition against the Indians, the Tories under a Capt. Greene made another excursion into the mountains, and he raised his fathers company and pursued the Tories under Greene and killed and made prisoners of Greene and his entire company. Sometime after this affair, a certain Roberts of the Tory Party came into the neighborhood with 6 Hessians and Cox and a Major Love pursued them into Carolina near the head of the New River. But CAPTAIN BAKER of North Carolina had heard of them and got there before Cox and his party overtook them and killed the whole party except Roberts, their leader, who made his escape.

The New River Frontier Settlement on the North Carolina-Virginia Border 1760-1820

 

1754. Andrew BAKER from Yadkin, North Carolina, one of the first pioneers

to claim land on the banks of the New River near the Virginia--North

Carolina border, had an experience parallel to that of Henrich Grob. Driven


out by Indians about 1754, BAKER returned approximately ten years later,

bringing reinforcements, the Cox, Osborne, and Hashe families. This

settlement by BAKER and associated families illustrates a typical pattern:

"These groups did not move into the public domain in ignorance of their

exact location; but rather, like the children of Israel, they sent their

Calebs and Joshuas ahead to spy out the land and prepare the way."

Certainly Andrew BAKER was a Joshua on the New River frontier. After his

initial essay when he came from the Yadkin Valley in the 1750s but was

driven back by the Indians, he returned about 1765 with enough people to

make a permanent settlement. Probably Andrew BAKER was related to the

Samuel BAKER whom Ramsey identifies as operating a public mill on Davidson's Creek in the Yadkin Valley in 1753; this BAKER came from either Chester County or the Susquehanna Valley in Pennsylvania. Paula Hathaway

Carolina Border 1760-1820," VMHB, 86(Oct. 1978):418.

Ruddle's Fort

 

Captain Ruddle, who came from the Shenandoah Valley, was one of Kentucky's earliest settlers. While General Clark was conquering the Northwest he lived on Corn Island and later at Logan's Fort near what is now Stanford, Kentucky. In 1779 he established his own settlement at Ruddles's on Hinkson Creek in what is now Bourbon County.

As the Revolutionary War progressed, the Indians, incited by the British, traveled in war partys and committed depredations on isolated settlements such as Ruddle's Mills. Ruddle, therefore decided for the Safley of his own family and those that had gathered around him to move into Hinkson's deserted fort on the Licking River. He added to and fortified it, making it one of the largest and strongest in the Kentucky wilderness capable of accommodating from 2 to 3 hundred people. His garrison composed of 49 men.

Notes for BOLLING BAKER:

The East Kentuckian Magazine footnote found by Jess Wilson--"Horse Pen was so called because Bolling BAKER, a renegade white man, who married Aracoma, daughter of Chief Cornstalk, built a corral there to hold stolen horses. The Shawnee

Indians, controlled by BAKER and Aracoma, were wiped out in 1780 by a group of Virginians at the Battle of the Islands near the present Logan, WV. Aracoma was killed and lies buried at Logan. The town was first called Aracoma in her honor.

Chief Cornstalk fought against the Virginians at Point Pleasant in 1774 and was murdered while being held hostage. "

John was a "Long Hunter" and in 1763 was living on the Green River, in what is now KY, with the Cherokees. Beginning about 1763 he and other Long Hunters made trips down the Cumberland River to Spanish Natchez to sell their furs. Colonel

Gasper Mansker once became too ill to travel in Natchez and John Baker stayed with him until he was able to travel; then he and Gasper walked cross country back to North Carolina. John served in the North Carolina Militia during the

Revolutionary War. A great grandson, when applying for membership in the Sons of the American Revolution, wrote, " Captain John Baker and his company went to the rescue of Colonel Benjamin Cleveland when the Torries were about the hang him."

John Baker came to Kentucky after the war and lived in Fayette, Boyle, Madison, Rockcastle and Clay Counties. After his second wife, Aza Williams died, he lived in a rockhouse near the mouth of Buffalo Creek, now in Owsley Co., KY, and died

there in 1820. John Rentie is said to have fathered several 1/2 Indian children.
