In 1840 John M. Tate, John Baker, and five others were appointed to the Board of Commissioners who established the first county seat of Marshall County, Alabama, then called Marshall but later changed to Wyeth City after the county seat moved. Very soon after this, John Baker and wife moved to Missisippi.

According to Baker family history, John Baker was born "on the Tate Farm, Stevenson, Jackson Co., AL." (at that time in Madison County). He married c1836 probably Jackson Co., AL. to Nancy Margaret Isbell and they moved to Chickasaw Co., Mississippi 1840-41. She died Dec.1846-47 and he married his second wife there in Chickasaw Co. or Yalobusha Co. c1847, later moving to Lawrence Co., Missouri, where he died in 1886.

A family tree gave her death as December 1847 while another family tree said 3 December 1846 (no citations given for either).
After Nancy Isbell Baker's death, John Baker married in 1847 his second wife Mrs. Martha McCord "Patsey" Hastings Bailey, the widow of Rev. Isham Bailey who died in Chickasaw County in 1847. It is possible, however, that both Nancy Margaret Isbell Baker and Isham Bailey died in Yalobusha County rather than Chickasaw County (probably now Grenada County). John Baker and Martha had seven more children, including Isham Porter, Missouri Ann, Harriet, Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, Minerva Isbell Baker and Andrew Ambrose Baker.
