The Western Spirit, Paola, Miami Co., Kansas, Friday, June 26, 1891, page 3:

"Mrs. Helen Baker, wife of Jas. M. Baker, daughter of Thos. and Susan Hollenback, born April 3d, 1843, died near Coldwater, Kansas, June 10th, 1891. Her remains were conveyed to Hillsdale, Kansas, her former home, to be buried near her father who passed away about 12 years before. All the brothers and sisters were present but the youngest brother. It was a terrible blow to all and especially to her poor dear mother who had watched anxiously for her to visit her on every train. The burial was attended by a host of friends. Loving hands gathered flowers and her grave was beautifully decorated by those who loved her and mourn her loss, but not as those who have no hope. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Jacob Brown, on Sunday, at 11 o'clock a.m. at the Baptist church. The text selected by a loving sister - "She is not dead, but sleepeth." - Luke 8-52, was beautifully adopted for the occasion.

Sister Baker was loved by all who knew her. She leaves a dear husband and one darling boy to mourn, but Jesus has promised to be in six troubles and the seventh he will not forsake them. She professed a hope in Christ twenty years ago and lived a consistent christian during her stay here. She was 48 years, 2 months and 7 days old."
