Birth: May, 1859

Death: Mar. 1, 1943

Addie Baker was one of at eight children born to Samuel Hodgdon Baker (1817-1901) and May Ann Howell (1822-1906) of Louisville, Kentucky. She had six older siblings and one younger brother. Her eldest brother, William Thomas Baker (1844-1900), was my great grandfather - the father of my grandmother, Pearl Laura Baker. He died of Consumption (TB) when my grandmother was five years old, just two weeks after her birthday in 1900.
Addie was born in May 1859 in Louisville and always remained at home with her parents as was customary at that time. She never married but remained at home. Her father was a carriage maker and had a thriving business in Louisville with his son's also working at the family's business. Three of her older sisters married and Mary Ella, another older sister, didn't marry, but lived at home until she also passed away in 1899. Addie's parents died in the early 1900's and she went to live with her brother, Herbert, his wife, Beaulah (Lunn) Baker, and her daughter from a prior marriage, Anna Mae Drysdale. By 1920, Addie had moved in with her widowed sister, Annie (Baker) Olvey, whose husband had died in 1912. They lived together in her home which was paid for, so no mortgage payment was due. Both declared no earnings during this time, but must have had other income of some kind. Annie passed away June 20th, 1928 and was buried at Cave Hill Cemetery. Addie died March 1st, 1943, still a resident of Jefferson County, Kentucky, although I've not found a census record for her for 1930 and 1940. She was buried with her parents and siblings at Cave Hill Cemetery, Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky. May she Rest at Peace with her Loved ones in Paradise.

Of Addie, who chose not to marry, but stayed with her parents in the home she was raised in, until they passed from this life, then with different brothers and sisters until passing away, herself. May she Rest In Peace, in Paradise.
