Marker next to Benjamin Baker and Urania Hickox Baker monument.
Bethia's death certificate indicates she was born in Westview and died in Olmstead, and that she was divorced - the informant being Dr. B. W. Baker, her son. Bethia's son's (Benjamin) death certificate indicates his father as Lester Baker and mother unknown, informant being Jay Jasper, his son-in-law. Another record indicates Bethia's spouse as Lester Beardsley, however if they were married and divorced, she used the name Baker as did her son.
1900 census appears to record her residing with her son and his family. It has been transcribed as Widowed, however a close look at the record reveals Divorced.
1880 census appears to record her and son residing with her father in Cleveland and is also recorded as Divorced.
