BAKER: Of Curtis District

Aaron Baker, born in the State of Maine, March 17, 1812, son of Aaron and Hannah (Smith) Baker, both of Maine; in Noble County, Ohio, 7th day of April, 1842, he and Sarah Jennings of that county were married; of this, five children were born: Hanna, David N., Elizabeth Jane, Ruth and Gamaliel. For a second wife Aaron Baker married Emily Jane McMun in Sharon, Noble County, Ohio, February 28, 1858, she being a daughter of Isaac and Maria (Moore) McMun; of this mar-riage, ten children were born, five sons and five daughters, all in Noble County, Ohio. Their names in order of dates of their births are: Aaron W., Lydia M., Cordelia A., Elmer Ellsworth, James Grant, Isaac A., Martha F., Mary Viola, died at two years, Margaret Luella, and Henry Clarence Baker. H. Clarence yet resides on the old farm just above the post office Clarence in Curtis District. Aaron Baker, the father above mentioned, came to this part of Roane County in the year 1881; he was a devout member of the Methodist Episcopal Church; gave of his time and means to building and support of his church, while clearing away the heavy forest and making the farm and home. But for a shoTt men-tion of the above facts of his life found in Hardesty's History to which he or some member of his family subscribed, name and memory of this good citizen would have been lost to the public; he has been dead so long, only two or three of the oldest citizens remember him. His children seek no public mention.
