Dabney G. Baker died yesterday morning at an early hour at No. 2806 East Franklin street. Deceased had been in bad health for nearly two months. He was 47 years of age. Dabney Baker was one of the best boys ever raised on Union and Church Hills, and all of his honorable and useful life was spent in that section. He leaves a devoted wife, lovely children, aged parents, and a host of friends to mourn their loss. He was a son of Mr. Elijah Baker, an old and well-known resident, and married a daughter of Mr. Henry A. Atkinson, another old and well-known citizen.
