Sans MS, sans-serif"">I am a Baker and I am stuck. I don't have any pay
sites.

My family is:
Norman Baker   b 18 May 1918 Windham, Windham Co, CT
                        d 1 or 17 Jan 1984 Hyannis, Barnstable Co, MA
m 2 Mar 1938 Mary Ida Shippee, alive
    her parents are
Leon Arthur Shippee and Ruth Helen Lewis
Sans MS, sans-serif"">
George E E Baker  b 1891 Pomfret Township, Windham Co, CT
                           d  apx 1974 Pomfret, Windham Co, CT
m Edith M b 1894
                d 1970's Pomfret, Windham Co, CT
Children: Norman, John, Irene, Ruby, Newell, either Irene or Ruby died
apx 10 yrs old, think Ruby.
              I know Norman, John, Newell and one of the girls are
deceased.

John E Baker  b  1859 CT
                      d  aft 1920 CT

Am I barking up the wrong tree? Someone found an Eli Baker buried in
Windham Co, CT. I know I should order a birth and death certificate for
John and hope I get more info, just haven't found the $20 for each as of
yet. I thought I had better birth and death dates for John but can't
find them right now. I found a census that John is with another person
at the age of 11. It appears that John was given to someone aft the age of
2.
Eli G Baker b 1801 Owego, Tioga Co, NY
                  d (Michigan)
m Jane H b 1842 NY (I also see CT and MA)
  Probably have married in CT
Children: John, Eli, Loretta, Elizabeth, William (Willie)

1900 census Homefiled, Oakland Co, Michigan
Eli
Eli H son
Willie A son
Sarah daughter in law b 1875 Michigan, parents Ireland
Stewart grandson b 1887 Michigan
Willie A Jr grandson f 1896 Michigan
unreadable A grandson b 1989/1900 Michigan
Jane is missing. Passed away? She is on 1880 census with both Eli's and
William with Pheba (Trum)bell - servant

Hint. Wrong Baker or an error?
1910 census Trowbridge Township, Allegan Co, Michigan
Eli b Ohio and parents from Ohio
unreadable (Estella) wife b Ohio father NY mother Penn

1860 census is the first to show Eli and Jane together in CT.

What Baker ancestors are you sure are yours? I have Baker family in Allegan County, but they came from Ohio. My cousin there tells me there were other Baker lines, too. One is hers.

This is where I am stuck Debbie, with Eli. I am pretty sure this is John's father but not 100%. And I don't know why John was abandoned.
