| || Notes for Charles F. Baker:|
Freeport Weekly Journal 4 June 1873 pg 8
Charles Baker age 12, the son of Frederick Baker Esq. Silver Creek was kicked by a horse 2 weeks ago last Monday, May 19, 1873 and died from the effects of it last Tuesday evening May 27, 1873. This is a calamity to his family and his friends that will be hard to bear.
His age must be in error here, he is listed in the 1870 census as age 17, he would have been 20 when this accident happened.
