Birth: 1843
York County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Nov. 24, 1920
Hampton City
Virginia, USA

In 1860, he was a laborer and farmer living in Manheim Township, York County. He stood 5' 5" tall and had dark hair and blue eyes. He never married.

A Civil War veteran, he was drafted in York October 24, 1862, and assigned to Co. B, 166th Pa Inf, at the rank of private. He failed to write his name on the roll, perhaps explaining why he is maintained on the rolls as "Baker." He spent several months in the hospital, and his discharge date not is on file. According to his Soldiers' Home record, he was discharged with his company July 28, 1863.

During his post-war pension application process, the War Department had difficulty locating his service records. He lived for a time in Fulton County, Illinois. Between December 6, 1888, and September 20, 1920, he was in and out of Soldiers' Homes in Illinois, Tennessee, and Virginia on eight different occasions. In between those periods, he lived in Heidelberg and West Manheim townships in York County.
