Rev Lorenzo Baker & son Daniel Baker, Lewis Co NY
My great-grandfather is Daniel Baker. I have 2 DOBs: per obituary he was born March 3 1846 in Theresa NY (Jefferson CO); per death certificate he was born Mar 1 1850, place of birth not recorded.Daniel died on Jan 12 1933 in Harrisville NY. I have copies of both.
Daniel's death certificate lists father as Lorenzo Baker, mother unknown.Obit lists parents as Rev & Mrs Loren Baker and states that he was one of 22 children - 18 sons & 4 daughters.Verbal history says that Lorenzo was a Prresbyterian Minister.
I'm trying to locate info on Daniel's parents & siblings.Conflicting census records show that he was born in Canada & NY.Shows father born in Canada and in NY;mother born in Canada, New York, and England.(Confusing!!)
Daniel married Susan Renaudin (b Jun 23 1854, Croghan NY; died Feb 8 1920, Harrisville NY.Date of marriage unknown, but estimate year ca 1872.
Dan & Susan originally had 13 children, of which 7 died ca 1883-87 from "Black Diptheria" in Jerden Falls NY.According to verbal history they died within 2 weeks. I've verified that an outbreak of "diptheria or black death" occuring via Lewis Coutny researchers.Children Ella May (b1873), and Charles (b1883) survived.The 1880 census shows 3 of the children that died:Daniel Jr - born 1878; George, b 1876; and Laura, b April 1880.Still trying for locate of the other 4.
Dan & Susan had 4 more children;Mary/Minnie, born Sept 1887; Delia, b March 1890; Agnes born May 1896; and Esther born Jun 1898.
Esther is my paternal Grandmother.
Any help in finding Dan Baker's family will be greatly appreciated!
