Joseph Isham Baker was born in 1784 in Clarendon Vermont and descends from Alexander Baker who arrived in Boston in 1635 aboard the Elizabeth and Ann(e). The couple were married in 1816/17 and traveled slowly west along the Great Lakes trail to Hardin County, Ohio. Joseph owned 150 acres of farmland near Champaign, Ohio which was located next the the Inskeep farm. The couple had 8 children: Stephen M, Mary M, Joseph I Jr, Ira W ,David Woodcock. Jane Eunice, Julia Ann and James Baker. Joseph I Sr. and Electa are buried at Beltz Cemetery, Champaign County, Ohio. The family is listed in the 1850 US Census for Hardin County, Ohio. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
