MY GREATEST DESIRE IS TO LOCATE THE DESCENDENTS OF THIS MAN
THEODORE 'THEO' SANFORD BAKER
Theodore 'Theo' Sanford Baker was first married to Hilda Parr of Gonzales Co., TX., their son William Wesley Baker was born 2/22/1922 in Pittsburg, Kansas. Theo married again to Esther D.Briggs probably 1924/5 in Palm Beach Co., FL.. Theo and Esther divorced about 1943 and Theo then married Ruby last name unknown. While working on a military base Theo was electrocuted due to accidental contact with high voltage wire while installing an air condition unit on a Military base in Boca Raton, FL..
Theo and Esther had two daughters, Gwendolyn Baker about 1928, and Elaine Baker 1930 in West Palm Beach, FL.
I hope someone will cross this site and have the information I am searching for which will end my search for the descendants of Theo and Esther Baker.

With just a few fragments of information about my grandfather Theo, I can now say "I know where I come from". I have been so blessed to locate his ancestors and with the help of so many wonderful people my Baker name is now well known. If only I had found all this information before my dad passed away.
This has been an interesting family to research and of course with the growth of my tree it becomes even more interesting.
