I saw your posting and was wondering if you had come across a William MORTIMER Baker.HE was an Indian Agent for the Blackfoot at Geichen, Alberta.I would love to find his obit.He apparently got killed while digging out a cellar and it collapsed on him. I was told he died in 1902 but his wife Clara (nee Esam) is a widow by the 1901 Census. Something else that's interesting...Clara's sister Margaret Esam married Meopham Gardner...their son was Clement Gardner, 1885-1963, was born in Russell, Manitoba and came as an infant to the Pirmez Creek area southwest of Calgary with his parents, Meopham and Margaret. In 1907 he competed in his first rodeo and was one of the top competitors at the first Calgary Stampede in 1912. He also entered a chuckwagon from his VU Ranch in each Stampede from 1923 to 1936. He supplied much of the stock for the annual event as well. He was a member of numerous horse associations including the Alberta Horse Breeder's Association and was a senior judge of the Canadian Horse Shows Association. He was also an associate director of the Calgary Stampede. I bet our two guys knew each other.I'm not actually related to the Bakers but am doing this for my uncle...SO if you ever come across an OBIT for William Mortimer Baker before 1901, that would be SOOO great.
