Richard--thanks for your quick response! Your information has been quite helpful.
I have Isaac McClure Baker listed as one of Joseph S. Baker and Elizabeth Hurt's sons. McClure is an uncommon name. I wonder what, if any, connection could be between Joseph McClure Baker and Isaac McClure Baker?
On Joseph M. Baker and Jane Jackson's marriage bond, Joseph McC. Baker is listed as surety. On Joseph S. Baker and Elizabeth Hurt's marriage bond, Joseph Mc. Baker is listed as surety. I wonder if it is the same individual?
Oh well......enough speculating. Thanks again for your help.
