Bio Photo Hello,

My name is Spirit Baker,

My maternal family is from England surname's Hall (Hull) and Doane (Doan)(Dunn) with Armstrong from Scotland and then North Ireland. My paternal family is Eli Baker from NY and moved to CT in late 1800's and then my Grandpa, Norman Baker, moved to MA.

I gather a bit of info from FamilySearch and add it to the bios. If you see an error please let me know and I will promptly update.

You may use my photos as you wish except to sell.

Thank you and good luck with your searches.

RE: Lewis Hall
My pleasure!....if there's anything else I can help you with, please let me know. I go to Trenton quite often to research their archives on microfilm. If you need any info on NJ births, marriages, deaths, let me know and I'd be happy to look up any documentation which may be helpful.
(I found Find-A-Grave through my genealogy research.)

RE: John A Hall
You're welcome! Just added a picture of the full headstone to Johns memorial page. Lewis's smaller marker is forward of the headstone on the left. The plot is sectioned off with a 1 foot high border. Sorry you can't see it all in the picture. Hope this picture is what you had in mind. Good luck with your updates on the memorials!

You asked me to add Cause of Death "old Age" but she was only 34 years old.

Please verify.

Thanks !

RE: William Armstrong
On the left side of William's stone, there is a
C. Shannon
b. Coshocton Co. OH 3-6-1831
d. 8-19-1906 Knoxville, IL

I have never known if this is William's wife??
That is all it says is C. Shannon I have a picture
but before I add it I want to make sure the last
name shouldn't be Armstrong or is it Shannon?
Any thoughts? Then next to William's stone is a
Jane, w/o J. Graulow d. 3/2/18_9 ae 71 yrs.
It is a very old stone. You could almost read it
when I cataloged cemetery back in 1975 and today
it is almost unreadable. Does this name mean
anything to you???? Thanks, Pam!

RE: John Richmond Duplicate
I first noticed the Global Find A Grave a few months back. It is used for those lost at sea, etc. where there are no burial sites.

I am not sure hers is Global, but it is for burial site unknown. If you read it, you will see there is nowhere near the information you have in yours. Sometimes I wonder how much research goes into the ones with unknown information.

John Richmond (died 1664)
Thanks for letting me know about the proper location of John Richmond's final resting place. I have corrected that aspect of my memorial. If you'd like to add the wonderful photo you took, that would be very nice. This lineage is a direct line for me, and I am grateful for any corrections. Another possibility you could explore if you like is to contact findagrave and let that know of the duplicates for John Richmond and ask them to merge them. Thanks so much.

Mystery Relatives
Hi Spirit..I think most of us have a mystery relative or two; it makes researching our history interesting. I found my father's grandfather by nosing around Rootsweb; got connected to a woman named Loretta in AZ who turned out to be one of his gr-grandchildren like me. She thought he only had 3 marriages; but I was a descendent of a son by his first marriage which no one in their family ever knew about. She also told me that every time he married his age changed. We decided even he didn't know how old he was. The family stories give our ancestry character, even if they don't give us answers to all the secrets.
Thanks for working with me on these Stetson lines. The Stetsons and Halls were both well-known shipbuilders and you can find that a lot of them intermarried. Best, Cuzzin Linda
