Birth: Nov. 17, 1829
Tennessee, USA
Death: Jun. 23, 1913
Webster County
Missouri, USA

The Missouri State Archives Soldiers' Records show Samuel M Baker enrolled September 1, 1863, at Melville (Dadeville), Missouri by Captain Holder. He went into active service September 2, 1863 by General Holland, and was relieved from service January 19, 1864 by General Holland.

1880 Dade County, Missouri Census lists Samuel M, age 50, and his wife Elizabeth, age 44, both born in Tennessee. All of the following children were born in Missouri: Nancy J, 20; Roda A, 18; Serena, 16; Selestia, 14; Sallie V, 12, Fannie B, 10; Charles S, 8; and Rebecca R, 6.

On the 1900 Dade County Census it is hard to read Samuel's name at the bottom of the page. Elizabeth on the next page shows she was born October, 1835, 64 years old, married 40 years, gave birth to 11 children, 7 living. Sallie V, 32, Fannie B, 30, and Charlie S, 28, are living at home.

Missouri Death Certificate #21871, Samuel M Baker d.June 23, 1913 Webster Co, burial to Bona Cem.(would be Long Cem, one in town not established) Sallie Baker informant, age 89 years, 7 months, 5 days, father Charles Baker.

The 1920 Webster Co, MO Census lists Sallie Baker, age 51, aunt-in-law, living with William H Farmer, 74, and his wife Lora E, 34. She must be an aunt of Lora E's. This connection to Webster County of Sallie leads me to believe the Missouri Death listed above is that of Samuel.
