History of Buchanan Co., Iowa 1842-1881 page 395 under section on Sumner, Buchanan Co., Iowa

Nathan C. Baker was born in Genesee county, New York, in 1827. When about seventeen years of age he learned the jewelry trade, at which he worked several years in Fond du Lac; Wisconsin, and in Placerville, California. He lived in California from 1850 to 1859, where, besides working at his trade, he engaged in mining, ranching and training horses. From California he went to Battle Creek, Michigan, where he resided the most of the time until he came to Iowa. He was married while there. Mr. Baker has travelled extensively. He devoted his time to travelling for two years. He has been in every State in the Union; also in Mexico and Central America. He came to Buchanan county in 1874, having bought his farm previously. He has three hundred and sixty acres of excellent land, and the farm is one of the very best in the county. It is well wooded and watered; has good buildings, a fine orchard, and beautiful shade trees. There is a valuable stone quarry on the place. Mr. Baker is one of our largest and most prosperous farmers. He was married in 1859 to Miss Carrie J. Crocker, a native of Lockport, New York. They have one child, Harley N. Baker, born in 1864. Mr. Baker is a member of the Masonic order. He is a prominent and highly respected citizen.
