Benjamin L. Baker

Benjamin L. Baker, for more than thirty years a resident of this city, died at 3:45 p.m. yesterday at the home of his sister, Mrs. E.H. Blanchard, 89 Main street. He had been in failing health for some time, but the immediate cause of death was acute Bright's disease.

Mr. Baker was a son of the late Richard and Rebecca Baker, and was born in England 43 years ago last February. The family came to America when he was but nine years of age, and since that time his home had been in Oneonta. He is survived by one son, Lynn, who enlisted in May last and is now with the American Expeditionary forces in France; and by a daughter, Miss Leta Baker, who is a trained nurse in Syracuse. He leaves also one brother, William Baker, and three sisters, Mrs. E.H. Blanchard and Mrs. James H. White, of Oneonta, and Mrs. Frank Dunning of Milford.

The funeral services will be held Thursday at an hour later to be announced in The Star. Interment will be at the Plains. Many friends of the family will sympathize with them in their loss.["Oneonta Daily Star, Oneonta, Otsego, New York, August 20, 1918."]
