Birth: Apr. 1, 1840
Death: Mar. 11, 1898

3rd Indiana Cavalry Civil War

WILMINGTON
Thomas Leroy Baker was born near Wilmington April 1, 1840; was married to Miss Celeste Canfield Nov. 15, 1866, and died of consumption at Wilmington after an illness of 18 months. He served as a brave soldier in the late war in Company D of the Third Indiana cavalry. He was a man greatly respected in the community where he has lived his entire life. He was kind and accommodating as a neighbor and helpful as a friend, and it is with deep regret that we lose so good a citizen. The funeral services were held in the M.E. church Sunday afternoon, March 13, conducted by the pastor, Rev. I. Turner, assisted by Rev. J.W. Dashiell of Aurora and Rev. M.W. Roof of Crozier. John A. Platter post of Aurora attended in a body. He leaves a wife, two daughters and one son, two daughters having died some years ago.
