I know this is 11 years later from this thread, but I also am searching for info on the same James Baker. Has there been any update? I'm looking for the father of Gilbert Troy Baker, & was led to James Baker & Rachel Walters, with James passing in 1873 & Rachel marrying Benoni wells. I cannot locate her parents, & am unsure of the info I found about his parents. Just hoping to put a few more pieces together in the puzzle.
