Peter Baker and his Wife, Christena Mathia

In 1871, the year Alsace Lorraine, French provinces, were taken by Germany, Peter Baker and his wife, Christena Mathia, sought a new beginning in America with their three children: Christian (nineteen), Peter (sixteen), and Christena (five).

According to Christena Baker Gessner, her Grandfather Baker was Napoleon Bonaparte's bodyguard.

Peter's son, Peter, had a daughter named Anna Baker, who through a taped interview (when she was eighty-two) provided a considerable amount of detailed information about the Baker's difficult life in Hambach, Germany.
