She appears to have gone by her middle name, Seyton, later in life. Seyton first appears with her parents in the 1870 US Census in Moniteau County, Missouri as Jennie S. Cook. By 1880, her parents had divorced and Seyton is found living with her siblings, and her father and his second wife in Moniteau County, Missouri. On September 9, 1885, "Miss Seyton J. Cook" married Lawrence Baker in Moniteau County, Missouri. By the 1900 US Census, she is living with her father and step-mother as Jennie S. Baker (widow) with her two sons, Roy R. Baker and Ivan C. Baker, who were both born in Texas (a 1928 arrival document from a ship's manifest indicates Roy was born in Gainesville, Cooke County, Texas). In the 1910 US Census, she is listed as Jennie S. Baker, living in Cedarville, Modoc County, California with her eldest son (Raymond Roy) as head of the household and the youngest son (Ivan C.) living there, too. In the 1920 US Census, she is recorded as "Siyton J Baker", a widow living alone in Cedarville, Modoc, California. She last appears in the 1930 US Census as Seyton Baker living alone as a widow in Cedarville, Modoc County, California.
