Hi, I saw a query on the McColl forum and since my maiden name is McColl, I thought I would look and see what I could find.This isn't my family, so I really don't have any more interest in learning about Susan and her family - but I hope you find all of your information.
I would look at the name:
DANA AUSTIN BAKER b. Knoxville, Knox, TN and died same.Resident in 1880 Dist 7 Shelby, TN
married Mary Anna Massengill -
apparently the son of Joseph Franklin Baker
Dana may have been born 24 Jul 1900
His WWI draft card lists a PEARL BAKER as his nearest relative the card: 12 Sep 1918
Between 1918 and 1920 he moved from Carter County TN (Hampton) to Knoxville, TN
His father Joseph Franklin Baker of Carter Co , TN may have been born 18 May 1875 His WWI Draft card lists as nearest relative PEARL BAKER (nee Markland or Makland) Joseph was a bookkeeper with Thomas Hall Lumber Co, Marmet, WV. It doesn't say whether he was currently employed since WV is not near where he lived in TN.
The above PEARL may have been Pearl Alice or Alice Pearl - her grave stone or obituary should clear that up. I didn't try to find a grave stone for any of the above.
Sometimes find-a-grave web site will have (suprisingly so) info about people that one would not think to find there.
In the 1930 US Census: Dana Austin Baker is listed as Davis Baker- error. He was living in Ward 16, Knoxville, TN age 29 b. TN b. @ 1901. his spouse: Mary A. Baker age 24, b. TN, b @ 1906.Children: William A - age 3 Thomas J age 1
There is more information on ANCESTRY.COM for Dana Austin Baker (sometimes written as Danna).
Some info: his parents Joseph and Pearl were married 5 Oct 1920 in Leavenworth, KS so Dana may have been born in KS.
Dana and Mary Massengill were married 27 April 1943 in Anderson County, TN. That would be verified by checking marriage records (usually the county library will have a book with that information - and can send a copy of the page)
At time of marriage Dana was age 45 - thus b. @ 1898 Mary was age 38 - thus b. @ 1905
Some living children: ???? Johnny Lee Baker - lives some place in FL Robert Baker b. @ 1941 and died in Knoxville, TN ???
In the 1930 US Census Dana Austin Baker (seen as Davis Baker) is listed as an Insurance Agent. - didn't say which one.
Hope you can find all the information you need!Sleuthing family is fun!
