Neome came to Colorado in 1861. After her husband's, Daniel M. Baker, death in 1902, Neome went with her daughter Elizabeth Jane Hath to Pine River Valley in the San Juans and also lived on a farm south of Ignacio,

Mrs. Neome Baker, the aged mother of Mrs. Elizabeth Freeman, and grandmother of Mrs. Jeff Keith died Sunday of ailments due to old age. She had attained the advanced age of 98 years .

Deceased was born in New Jersey December 2, 1818, came to Colorado in 1861 and lived in this state ever since. Her husband, Daniel M. Baker, died in Custer County 19 years ago and since that time she made her home with her daughter, moving to Pine River Valley 17 years ago. Her only living child is Mrs. Freeman. The body was taken to Durango Monday and the funeral took place there the following day.

For several years past Mrs. Baker and Mrs. Freeman have lived on a farm south of Ignacio.
It is indeed rarely that any person lives to such an age. In less than two years more she would have reached the centennial mark, something seldom heard of anywhere.
