Wife of Willard, and mother of Marian, William, Carolyn, Marie and Sylvia. Her Baker ancestry goes back to James Baker with 16 straight sons. The first wife had Peter (the 1st son) and died shortly thereafter. Then he married Ruth Post and they had the other 15 sons. The Baker Family Reunion started in 1864, when the 16 sons of James and Ruth Post Baker met with their families at the Baker Homestead in Mechanicville, NY. The Reunion continued yearly and grew substantially and the descendants increased in number, with everyone identifying themselves by one of the 16 Baker brothers, such as Israel or James.
