"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 144, No 25, p 415, June 21, 1948.
Alvin C. Baker died May 22, 1948, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. LaVern Kenyon of Alfred, N. Y. He was 85 years of age and had been in good health until a week before his death.
Mr. Baker was born at Five Corners, town of Alfred, and was adopted into the Seth Baker family of Andover when eight months old. He was reared in the Presbyterian Church, but accepted the Sabbath in middle life as a result of his study of the Bible, and joined the Andover Seventh Day Baptist Church. He was a farmer and cheesemaker at Tip Top from 1898 until his retirement.
Making violins was a special interest of Mr. Baker, particularly in his later years, and a dozen or more of his instruments are left in the care of his family. He played the violin at gatherings of elderly men called together by Rev. George B. Shaw. He was a charter member of Alfred Grange, No. 1097.
Besides his daughter he is survived by three grandchildren: Mrs. Richard Palmiter of Rochester, Mrs. Charles Smith of Alfred, and Brice Kenyon of Alfred.
Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Albert N. Rogers of Alfred Station, in the First Alfred Seventh Day Baptist Church, in the Absence of Rev. Everett T. Harris, pastor of the Church, and at the Alfred Rural Cemetery where the burial took place.
