George Baker/Mary Sebring

Does anyone on this list know anything about the Bakers
of Beaver, PA?

I don't know much about my gg grandfather except his name was George Baker born in Beaver County, PA. I don't know his parents name, but there is a John Baker that got his son George's pension from the Civil War..I just don't know if this is the right family or not.

In Feb.1861 in Ohio township, PA George married Mary Sebring b: 1835 in Smith Ferry's, PA. George had a son Elmer b: 1857, therefore, Mary was his 2nd wife. Nov of 1861 their daughter Margaret (Maggie) was born.

George went off to fight in the Civil War and Mary moved to Columbiana County, Ohio where her Sebring family lived. About 1864 she had another daughter who died sometime in 1865, before her 1st birthday. George had been captured sometime in 1864 and sent to Andersonville. In 1865 he was paroled but while in Cincinnati,Ohio but he died. I don't know why he was in Cincinnati. But Mary died shortly after
after he did.

This left Elmer and Maggie orphans. We don't know who
raised them. The Baker family, the Sebring family or did they go into an orphanage.

In 1878 Maggie married Charles Thompson and
Elmer married Nettie Grim and had a daughter Mary born in 1879 in E. Liverpool, Ohio (Columbiana county).

Has anyone out there ever heard of this family? Or maybe
someone can tell me how to get some more information.
