How nice of you to offer to do a lookup on my BAKER family in WOLCOTT, NEW YORK, OLD & NEW.

Julius Baker lives on the next place east, and it is a pleasure to talk with so well preserved and active a man, whose years are reaching toward the eighties. Born in 1810, I found him on a hot August day of 1888 using a cradle in an oat field, and full of jovial remark. He says that Dudley Wade used to court a red-headed girl named Goodsell, in Clinton, Oneida county, and that years afterward, when Baker was sawing wood for Mr. Wade, he asked him, as they were sitting down to the table, if he remembered anything about her. "Don't you say a word about that red-haired girl before my wife," says Uncle "Dud" and, says Baker, " I didn't." "Why, Wade hitched up the first horse that I drove when I went courting," continued Mr. Baker. He was born in Watertown, Conn. He was for many years a wagonmaker, and lived in various places, coming to Rose directly from Cayuga county. His wife was Eliza Leonard, who was born in 1811, in Westmoreland, Oneida county. For the last twenty-four years he has lived here. His son, George, lives near Wolcott, and Jerome in Auburn. Nelson is on the farm with his father. Jane married Ambrose Copeman, from Aurelius, who died on the Collins place, east. Nelson's wife is Helen Barrett, a native of Ossian, Allegany county. Their children are Clara and George. Mr. Baker bought of William Chaddock, who built the house, and he followed Hiram Dunn."
My note: I think Helen BARETT BAKER [Mrs. Nelson] was from Ossian, Allegany Co., PA [Pennsylvania] not Allegany Co., NY.
