RE: Clara Baker, wife of Matthew Simpson Tarkington
Hi, Mary Ann,

Thanks for helping me find this part of the "puzzle."

Father of Clara Williams Baker was Marshall "Marsh" Williams (with an "s") Baker. He was named for his mother, Sarah Williams (1807-1867).

Marsh Baker also had a brother named John Williams Baker.

Again, thanks for your help.

RE: Clara Baker, wife of Matthew Simpson Tarkington
Dear Mary Ann,

Thank you so much for this info. I did find the following newspaper article in the Tucson Daily Citizen 25 September 1952 Page 20 ...:

"Woman, 104, Dies At Phoenix; Rites Set PHOENIX--OJ.PJ--Funeral services will be held tomorrow for Mrs. Diona Frances Hamilton, who died at the age of 104 Tuesday. Mrs. Hamilton, who once shook hands with Abraham Lincoln, was born in Greensburg, Ind., .in 1848. She moved to Arizona in 1944 from Farmland, Ind. Another Indiana native, Mrs. Clara Tarkington, an aunt of novelist Booth Tarkington, died the same day at the age of 103."

I appreciate your prompt response.

Clara Baker, wife of Matthew Simpson Tarkington
Do you know where Clara W. Baker Tarkington, wife of Matthew Simpson Tarkington, is buried. I know in 1941 she is living in Decatur County, Indiana, but can find no information about her death and burial. Thank you for any help you can give me.
