That is very kind, thank you.If Alfred Adolphus S Baker did indeed marry Mabel Jane Govier, then we are distantly related by marriage!His father was Frederick Baker, who worked for the Great Western Railway in Somerset, England.His father before him was Daniel Baker, a stonemason, and I am stuck here at the moment.
Alfred was my grandmother's brother.She was Ada Louise Salisbury Baker, who married Willie Albert Mace in 1905.He was an official in the Chinese Maritime Customs service and they lived in China for sometime.I can give you details if you are interested.I do not have many details on the Baker side yet, but if they are of interest, please let me know.
On Willie Albert Mace's side, quite a few Mace's went to the US in the 1800s, some to Utah and some to one of the Carolinas, North or South, but I would have to check which.
Please feel free to email me if you wish.
