Matilda Longfellow Baker
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 19, 1845
Tipton County
Indiana, USA
Death: Dec. 12, 1932
East Galesburg
Knox County
Illinois, USA

Death Record says death 1931,(believe wrong, obituary substantiates 1932) and death registered with name as Matilda Baker Luper. Parents John Longfellow and wife Elizabeth Wolf.

Matilda married Henry Baker August 28, 1862 at Tipton Indiana.

After Henry's death, Matilda married Wm. Leeper (discrepancy here in name spelling with death record). Marriage record has William Leeper age 59, of Butler Co., to Mrs. Matilda Baker, age 43 of Pratt Co. and married at Pratt Co. KS., March 26, 1888.

Many records including some of the family have William's name spelled as "Leeper", never as "Luper".
