Mrs, Baker was the last of the cousins of A. J. Wylie and Mrs. W. L. Tomlinson of Rome and was a woman of beautiful character, refined and well educated, and her sudden passing will occasion much sorrow.

Dr. Baker retired form active practice in September, 1915 and soon after sold his property here and moved to Camden. Mrs. Baker was particularly well known by hosts of friends on Rutger street and vicinity and was held in the highest regard by all. She leaves no children.
