William Alexander Baker was born in 1833 in Canada to John Baker (1804-1874) and Christiana McArthur (1804-1900). His family emigrated to the USA in 1849 and settled in Cuyahoga County, OH. It was probably there that William met his Ohio-born wife, Mary Hannah Lamson. They married in 1866 and had 4 children:
Helen McArthur Baker (1867-1891)
Morgan Lamson Baker (1869-1952)
Vernon Baker (1872-1925)
Margaretha Augusta Baker (1876-1895)
William was a bookkeeper/accountant, and the family spent most of their years in St. Louis, MO. William died July 30, 1902 of TB and was buried Aug 1, 1902 in Bellefontaine Cemetery in the same family plot where his two daughters who predeceased him were buried.
