RE: Lewis F Baker
The Lewis F Baker who was my great g. uncle was married to my aunt Sadie Camp. I have not located her grave at this point but I am pretty sure the photo you submitted is him. I do not have a way to submit photos to Find a Grave unfortunately. The photo I have I believe was take at the time if his marriage to my great great aunt.

Lewis F. Baker
You posted photo of L. F. Baker. Would you be related to him. My great aunt perhaps was his second wife. The dates seem to match. I also have a couple photos of him. My aunt had told me they had lived at Roscoe, PA

RE: Julia Gay Pardee
Thank you Allen.

This information was the last that I needed. I really appreciate you sending it. Right now they just lack a death certificate and then I can send the application in to Plymouth. Are you any relation to that family?

RE: Westanna McCay Pardee
Thank you Allen,

I haven't been able to find her parentage. I appreciate you giving me that info. In the Mayflower paperwork, we have to note parentage of the spouse. Another spouse, Julia Gay, 2nd wife of Orrin Pardee is another one that I'm stuck on finding that info. I have the picture of Orrin's gravestone but nothing on his wives. I found Julia's death in the Sharon Burying grounds index. Do you know this family? You've got a lot of credits. I enjoy being able to find a picture for someone. I've even had people find some for me when I'm doing an application.

Thank you again.
