Information I've received from various family sources and websites show Joseph Baker born about 1744 around Martha's Vineyard, married Dorcas Smith on February 16, 1769, relocated to Moscow, Somerset County, Maine where he died on June 21, 1816. I have started his profile because I am most interested in fleshing out the line of Baker from me back to him and beyond.
I am fairly certain that Dorcas Smith (http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Smith-80100
) is a direct descendent of John Howland from the Mayflower. The Baker name is what I am more interested in however since I have some questionable dates/generations from Joseph to me, and I know nothing about his ancestry.
My information sourcing is going slowly because I probably worry too much about formatting and such. Regardless, any help would be most appreciated. Thank you.
