On the 6th of March, 1872, in McLean county, Mr. Baker was united in marriage with Miss Lucinda Johnson, a native of that county, and a daughter of Jesse Johnson, who came to this state from Indiana at an early day. She died March 4, 1890, leaving five children, namely: Frances Ellen, wife of Charles Cunningham, of McLean county; Olive L., at home; Jacob F., who is married and engaged in farming in Waynesville township; [and] Arthur L. and Sidney L., who assist their father in the operation of the farm.

Died, Tuesday, March 4, at 11:30 P.M., at her home near Fair View, Mrs. Lucinda F. BAKER, wife of James BAKER, aged 35 years, 11 months and 12 days. Lucinda F. JOHNSON was born in McLean county March 20, 1854, and was the youngest child, except one, of a large family. She was united in marriage at Heyworth on March 6, 1873, to Isaac BAKER, and on the morning of her 17th wedding anniversary we performed the last sad rites for the dead. She leaves a family consisting of a husband and five children, two daughters and two sons, to mourn the loss of an affectionate wife and mother. The fourth child of this family died in infancy, and now rests at Shiloh, but the remains will be brought here and laid beside its mother. The funeral ceremony was conducted at Fair View on Thursday, the 6th inst., by Rev. J. O. KIRKPATRICK, pastor of the M. E. Church at Heyworth. Rev. Kirkpatrick delivered an able and interesting sermon to a large and attentive audience, after which the remains were laid to rest in the cemetery at this place. She united with the M. E. Church on February 18, last, and died in the full enjoyment of the Christian's hope. In this dark hour, as they stand by the grave of the departed, and hear the cold clods of earth falling upon the coffin lid of her so dear to us in life, in this hour of trial may the bereaved family be brought to realize that she who has "gone before," is at last free from the cares and conflicts, the disappointment and griefs that fall to the lot of all. Wife and mother, farewell, thy years were few, but thy virtues were many; they are recorded, not in these fading lines, but in the "book of life" and in the hearts of thy afflicted friends. óC. A. S.
