Frances Amelia Baker was Anna Hayward Merritt's mother. Anna was a collector of stories about her Baker and Hayward relations. Anna scatters bits about her mother throughout the 1000 pages she typed.

"She was an attractive girl who could sing and play the melodeon. This pleased Daniel DeCamp who was very fond of music. He urged my mother to go home with him, promising her a piano and a musical education. Though this was a tempting offer, my mother did not accept. But she never forgot Daniel nor the temptation of his offer. When her fourth son was born, she named him, "Daniel DeCamp".

"Aunt Sue and mother were married at a double wedding...mother always boasted of having milked six cows on the morning of her wedding day."

After the death of her husband, she sold their home on Elmwood Ave in Lockport NY and spent her remaining years living among her children.
