Are you saying that this William Anderson is Samuel's father? You are so fortunate that some of your family researched. I started this in 1982.My Dad told me a Baker ancestor was a sea captain who sailed out of NY but didn't live there.My aunt told me that another aunt belonged to a Baker family organization and the family is connected to an English king. No one can tell me the organization or the connection. Could I have a copy of Rebecca's letter? I will e-mail you my address.
