|Death: ||Jan. 7, 1923|
The Freeholder, Cornwall, ON - 11 January 1923
Newington Isaiah Baker The sudden death of Isaiah Baker at his home in Dixon, on January 7, 1923, came as a great shock to his many friends throughout this section. Mr. Baker had enjoyed good health right up to the day of his death, going to the barn as usual and doing the necessary chores. Shortly after breakfast, he was stricken with heart failure and died a few minutes later. He was a kind husband, loving father and good neighbor, and the sympathy of the whole community will go out to the bereaved family in their loss. The late Mr. Baker was born on the homestead at Dixon 63 years ago, a son of the late Nelson Baker, and spent practically his whole life there, where he had the esteem and respect of all who knew him. Mr. Baker was a staunch Liberal all his life. He is survived by his widow and two sons, - Ewart W. of Dixon and Charlie R. on the homestead; also two sisters - Mrs. James Merkley of Massena, NY, and Mrs. Dan Johnson of Avonmore. The funeral took place from his late residence to the Baptist Church and Cemetery at Dixon, Rev. J. Ford of Osnabruck Centre officiating. The pallbearers were James Zeron, Peter Zeron, Silas Hawn, Croydon Bush, Allan Fyke, and Alvin Eamon. Among relatives present from a distance were Mrs. Levi Montgomery, Apple Hill; Mrs. Wm. Kirkey, Cornwall; A. Morgan, Wales. A wreath was placed on the casket by the family. Deceased married 40 years ago in November to Martha A. Paupst of Northfield Station.
