|Birth: ||Oct. 21, 1791|

Rev. Matthew Baker, Jr. was born in Vermont. He married Samantha ?. They have six documented children, Albert, Lorenus, Mary, John, Orrin and Edward.
Matthew was a prominent Reverend, marrying many of the local couples in Coles County as well as presiding over his children's marriages.
Also, please note that his tombstone reflects his name as MATHEW Baker, with only one "t". All other recordings of his name specify two "t"s, I do not know if this is a typo on the tombstone or simply because common practice is two "t"s and his name is altered in the records.
Samantha Town Baker (1790 - 1853)*
