Joshua Baker, the fourth son of Alexander Baker, b. 30 Apr 1642, was the ancestor of the Baker families in Montville. He removed from Boston and settled at New London, Connecticut about 1670. He received shares in the town plot and became a large landholder. About the year 1700 he received a deed from Owaneco, the Chief of the Mohegans, for a large tract of land in Mohegan, Connecticut, on which his sons afterwards settled. A portion of the same tract some of his descendants still occupy. This tract of land was located in the vicinity of the famous Cochegan Rock.
