Helena (Gould) Wagner headed a household in Jasper County, Missouri in 1870. Her husband, Joseph Wagner, was buried in the same county in 1869.
A Jasper County marriage record shows Helena D. Wagner married Thomas Baker 20 August 1871.
By 1880 Helena lived in Indiana as the head of a household with her Wagner children. It is possible that Pearl, age 7, was the daughter of Thomas Baker.
Can you identify Thomas Baker? When and where was he born? Did he divorce Helena or die? What happened to him?
