LINCOLN, Ill., Dec. 28 -- [Special.] -- Nicholas Baker, one of the oldest and most prominent of Logan County's prosperous German farmers, died at the home of his son, August, in Lincoln Township, about 1 o'clock this morning of Bright's disease. "Uncle Nic," as he was familiarly known, was on the streets Thursday, and made Christmas purchases and returned home. The following day he was taken ill.
Mr. Baker was born in Germany in 1817, came to America and Illinois at an early age, and by economical habits and his bustling ability achieved success in his life work and leaves a large estate to a family of grown sons and daughters, his wife having preceded him to the other world three years ago. Mr. Baker enjoyed an excellent reputation for honesty, was charitably inclined, and was highly esteemed by his neighbors, who were all his friends. The community loses an upright citizen in his demise. The funeral will be held Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. at St. Mary's German Catholic Church.
