QUERY: I’m renewing my search for info on Henry Baker (1787-1854). There is documentation dated Feb. 1, 1807 in Thorn Twp., Fairfield co., Ohio stating that Henry Baker, age 18 1/2, dissolved his apprentship as a Wagonmaker. He was born in PA , according to family legend his father Jacob Baker had him out of wedlock, (later he adopted him)Jacob Baker was suppose to have been a Revolutionary war solider from Germany (maybe Jacob Becker?). Also Henry married Mary Binkley in Fairfield County in 1808. I have nothing on Henry’s father or mother. Some info on his children…HE HAD 15. He later lived and died in Allen county, Ohio. Any info would be apprecaited…glad to share what I have too. Barb Seggelke
