I am researching the surname BAKER, specifically a Jacob BAKER, of German heritage who may have been born of parents residing in or near to Randolph Co., VA/WV in the mid to late 1700s. It is likely that the Jacob BAKER of my focus was born either in Germany or America ca. 1770-1775. Jacob BAKER would be my 4x paternal great-grandfather.
The Jacob BAKER of my interest is thought to have married a Nancy PARSONS (daughter of Joseph PARSONS and widow of Moses SLAUGHTER) in Randolph County, VA/WV in 1800. This information comes from "The Randolph Co. Marriage Book." From Randolph Co.VA/WV this couple migrated to the area of Mason & Jackson Co. VA/WV where they lived out their lives. Nancy BAKER died between 1850-1870 and Jacob BAKER died in about 1843; both in Jackson Co. VA/WV.
The son of Nancy & Jacob BAKER was my 3x great-grandfather, Charles BAKER (1806-1902) who lived and died in Mason Co., VA/WV. Charles BAKER married a Sarah STEWART in Ripley, Jackson Co., VA/WV in 1833. I can trace my BAKER line from this point to the present.
Because I believe that my German ancestor, Jacob BAKER, came to VA/WV through either VA or PA I am writing this message in hopes that you may be able to shed some light on the PARSONS/BAKER *problem* from the perspective of your database/resources.
I look forward to hearing from you if there is any interest or information along these lines.
