Death: Jun. 11, 1910

Mrs. Mary Anne Baker died Saturday evening, Jun 11, 1910 at 6:30 o'clock at her home in Mattoon. Funeral services were held at the home Monday afternoon by Rev. Mr. Wetzel of the Mattoon Christian Church, burial following in the Mattoon Cemetery. Mrs. Baker's maiden name was Neff and she was born near Lancaster, PA, Feb. 6, 1824. When 8 years of age she moved with her parents to Ohio settling near Dayton. When 18 years of age she was united in marriage to Daniel Baker, deceased, at Salem, OH, Oct. 7, 1842. She went with her husband to the home which he had prepared for them near Manchester, IN. To the union were born 8 sons and 5 daughters: James Baker, Smith Center, KA; George, Humansville, MO; Frank of Hollister, MO; Mont of Findlay, IL; John and Thomas, Toledo, IL; one son dying in infancy and another son, Jake, died in 1892. The daughters, Mrs. Susan Crowe, Lewisburg, OH; Mrs. Elizabeth Norman-Browne, Topeka, KS; Mrs. Lydia Record, Shelbyville, IL; Mrs. Nettie Evans-Spears and Mrs. Fannie Miller, Mattoon. With their family they moved to Illinois in 1864, living for three years near Charleston and then coming to Shelby county where they lived on Sand Creek for 19 years. With her companion they united with the Sand Creek Christian church in 1869. On moving to Windsor in April 1886, they transferred their membership to the Christian church of this city. She remained a true Christian spirit which showed in her everyday life, a true companion to her husband, a loving mother to her children and a kind, pleasant neighbor, though a quiet, retiring, home woman. Her husband preceded her to the better land nine years ago, dying Nov. 15, 1901. With her son Frank she continued to live in her little home, which had such pleasant memories to her, until she became too feeble to care for herself. She went to make her home with her daughter Nettie, who tenderly cared for her the remaining months of her life. None will miss so much as her children. Her former neighbors in Windsor will miss her, where for years she was well known and lovingly called Grandma Baker. Windsor Gazette 16 Jun 1910
