Possible connection with Baker family that moved to Watertown, Jefferson Co,NY area in early 1800s from Sullivan, Cheshire Co., New Hampshire. Thomas Baker, born 1788 in NH had moved to Jefferson County and my ggggrandfather, Emerson Baker(b. 1799) and family moved there about 1828 before departing for Illinois and Iowa in 1840s. Frank Baker is a family name that showed up in my line, but it is possible another of Thomas and Emerson Baker brothers started families in the Jefferson area also.
Contact me if you think this is any family connection.
