John Baker was the son of Daniel Baker (born 1767, died 1854 So. Yarmouth, MA) and Polly Hopkins (born 1773 Harwich/Brewster, died 1 September 1866 So. Yarmouth, MA). He is a descendant of Mayflower passenger Stephen Hopkins, through his mother Polly Hopkins.
John's siblings include Deborah Chipman Baker (1794-1874, married George Follett), Elkanah Hopkins Baker (1796-1866), Hopkins Baker (b. 1798), Ebenezer Baker (1800-1857), Lemuel Hopkins Baker (1805-1860), Waterman Baker (1807-1896), Abigail "Nabby" Baker (b. 1810), Mary J. Baker (1814-1894, m. Issac Bassett, m.(2) George Butler), Ruth Baker (1815-1888, m. Daniel Baker, son of George & Betsey Kelley Baker) and Jedidah Baker (1818-1888, m. Josiah Baker born 1812).
He married Charity Wixon on 24 Oct 1823 in Harwich, MA. Children included: John (died at birth), Polly Hopkins Baker (married Joseph Robinson), Phoebe Ann, John Jr. (married Louisa Ann Walker, Geneva Coleman-Slocum & Hannah D. Kelley-Snow), Huldah Ann (married Reuben Baker II), Ahira Baker (married Thankful W. and Phebe), Keziah Davis Baker (married Issac W. Ellis), Charity Akin Baker (married Freeman Baker and Lot Sears) and David Sears Baker (married Elvira F. Cahoon).
John is found in Yarmouth, MA Census records in 1850, 1855, 1860, 1870 and 1880. His occupation is listed as Seaman and Fisherman. He is buried next to his wife Charity.
His death date on Yarmouth Death Records is listed as 3 November 1886, age 83 yrs., 9 months, 3 days. His gravestone lists his death date as 3 December 1886, aged 83 years. It seems his gravestone date is incorrect, and the vital record is the correct date, as his age on death record calculates as his correct birth of 31 January 1803. This error on the stone might have been made if the stone was erected when his wife died 12 years later in 1898.
