Born in Tyrone Township, Perry County, Pennsylvania, the son of Samuel & Elizabeth (Scheibley) Baker, in 1860 he was a brick layer living in Carlisle, Cumberland County. He stood 5' 5" tall and had light hair and blue eyes.
A Civil War veteran, he enlisted in West Chester, Chester County, June 8, 1861, and mustered into federal service as a private with Co. H, 1st Pennsylvania Reserves (30th Pennsylvania Infantry). The date of his muster is in question. The Pennsylvania Archives' ARIAS file claims he mustered July 26, 1861, which was when bulk of men mustered, but the company register says February 10, 1862. Both sources list the muster location as Bristow, Virginia,, which by definition means the later date. (He may have fallen ill subsequent to enlisting and was unable to serve until then.) Wounded at the battle of Spotsylvania May 18, 1864, he died from the effects of his wounds at Staunton U.S. Hospital, Washington DC. Although he is listed as having transferred to Co. F, 190th Pennsylvania Infantry, to complete his term of service, that is impossible. That transfer occurred four days after his death.
