Recent DNA tests show that George Baker of Jefferson Co TN, who married Margaret Miller, was NOT related to James Baker and Mary Hill, as previously thought. This leaves it up in the air as to who Elijah Baker's parents were, as he does appear to have been related to James, at least all his neighbors in Cherokee Co AL were. What we really need is a direct male descendant of Elijah Baker's to be tested. If you should know anyone who fits the bill, please let me know.
