I'm Looking for a lookup in the Bennett Co. Cemetery records on any Baker family who might be buried there?
I'm Looking for info on the parents of a Jim Baker who was born in South Dakota on Jan. 17, 1915. My friend says Jim had a brother named George, his father was named Thompson Baker & his mother Elizabeth. This is about all she knows on them... Jim married in Iowa in 1939 & joined the Army in 1945, discharged in 1948 & she has his military papers but looking for more info on his parents.
I could find no Thompson's in South Dakota census on Ancestry nor any Jim's in 1920 or 1930
So I was Searching 1920 census records I found a listing of Robert J. Baker in Bennett co, township 37, - 5 yrs old,
living with George E. BAKER 45, born ILL, father b. in France (list Turkish? beside it), mother b. in PA.
wife Josie E. 36 yrs old, b. ILL both parents b. in ILL.
Alex M Baker 17, b. Ill
George D. 16, b. ILL
Robert J. 5 b. South Dakota
Josephine M. Baker 1 8/12 b. South Dakota
In 1930 census, Martin, Bennett co SD
Geo E. Baker 54,
Daisy M. Baker 51, b. KS, OH, KS
Geo Baker 26, IL IL IL
Robert Baker 15, So Dakota IL IL
indexed as Joseph (but it's Josephine 12,
Iris Satter looks like a S. before Daughter? stepdaughter?? 18, b. Neb, ILL, KS, works at the Beauty Shop
Dorothy Peterson 21 Boarder
I'm wondering if Thompson was a nickname for George E. ?
Josie E.'s middle name maybe could have been Elizabeth?
& Jim's first name was Robert? Robert Jim perhaps...?
& If Josie E. died between 1920 & 1930
& George E. had remarried to Daisy M & her daugher Iris Satter b. in NEb was Daisy's daughter from another marriage is living with them?? hum? or do I have the wrong family for Jim Baker?
Thanks for any help on these folks you can send my way.
Treasure the time & help finding info on them.
Happy Trails on all your researching too.
