Mr. Baker was born in Waterloo, Blackhawk county, Iowa, January 24, 1857. He is a son of David Baker, of old Puritan stock, born in Maine, a farmer by occupation, who died here November 25, 1906. The mother, Rebecca Abel, was a Quakeress, born in Ontario, Canada. Our subject was reared in Iowa until fourteen years of age, and then with the rest of his family moved to Kansas, locating in Elk County, where his young manhood years were spent on a farm. In 1888 he left Kansas, driving overland in a covered wagon, and struck Nebraska, locating on a homestead on section 5, township 30, range 51. The trip took 6 weeks, and the time was full of incidents and rough experiences, camping out at night in the wagon beside the roadway. He immediately went to work building a log house, and occupied this for six years, employing his time in breaking up the farm, and cutting logs which he hauled to the town of Crawford and traded for flour and provisions. He went through many hard times, witnessing the drought periods and other discouragements, but has never has a complete failure of crops. Success attended his efforts, however, and he is now in four hundred acres of good land, about seventy acres of which is cultivated and the rest in pasture land and timber. There is an abundance of wild fruits on his place, and he has at different times cut lumber from the place for buildings, ect. He has a good house, Barnes and other buildings, and all his land is fenced. He has a number of good horses, and keeps quite a large herd of cattle and hogs.
In 1880 Mr. Baker was married to Miss Ellen Long, whose father, Peter L. Long, was a farmer in Elk county, Kansas, and her mother, Miss Annie Struck was of Pennsylvania German stock. Mr. And Mrs. Baker is the parents of the following children: Chester R., married, Arthur D., Jr., Charles O. and Florence E.

Notes for Allena Baker:
BAKER*HOCH FAMILY HISTORY

David Baker was born in the month of June, 1818 in Maine. He married Rebecca
Abel who was born in Canada. They had eight children -- Adnarm, Martha, Ella,
Abelina, Arthur, Olive, Alwilda, and Alena born in 1862. David Baker at age 44
and his son, age 24, served in the Civil War for the Union side. David was in
the Infantry and Adnarm in the Cavalry. At this time the family lived in Iowa.
They moved by covered wagon to Kansas in the 1870's and took up a claim near
Howard. Alena went to school at Mound Branch. She had to wade across a creek
on her way to school and she would take off her shoes, wade across, put them
back on and continue on to the school or home each day. After Alena grew up,
she worked as a maid in the John Hugg home for $1.50 per week wages. She was a
cook at the Place Hotel in Moline, Kansas, at the time of her marriage to
Clinton Hoch.

Isaac Hoch was born in Pennsylvania of Penn-Dutch ancestry. Mary Bowman was
born in Maryland of Scotch-Irish ancestry. They were married in 1852 and had
eight children -- Emma in 1853, Wellington or Bill on Dec. 25, 1854, Clinton on
June 19, 1856, also Anna, Guyelma, Marion, Manford, and Coradell or Dolly. The
parents separated when their children were still small. Isaac was a good
cabinet maker but a poor businessman. The mother was very impressionable and
believed in spiritualism, mediums, and such. When she learned that she could
not care for all the children, she bound out the older ones to other families
until they were 21 -- at which time they were to receive a horse, bridle, and
saddle. At this time they were living in the state of Indiana.

Clinton Hoch was about eight and Bill was about nine and a half when they were
bound out to a family with four large boys, a retarded girl, and some smaller
children. They worked for only room and board and wore the family's
hand-me-down clothes. The little boys had to wear grown men's overalls with
just the legs cut off.

Clinton was made to stomp clothes in wash water to which lye soap had been
added and the strong soap sometimes made bad sores on his legs. One day they
heard that their older sister, who worked as a maid in a Hotel, was very ill.
The woman told them that they could go to see her if they would pick a bucket of
berries first and take them to the store and sell them. Bill threw his bucket
away, ran off to see his sister and never came back. But Clinton picked his
berries, walked four miles to town and sold them at the store. Then he went to
the hotel where they told him that his sister Emma had just died. She was 16
years old.

Clinton finally ran away too as the family was so mean to him. The nearly
grown boys would throw him in the river and tell him to sink or swim. Sometimes
they would tie his pants leg shut, fill his pants with sand so he couldn't stand
up, then kick him around. Sometimes they made him sleep with the retarded girl
which terrified the little boy. After he ran away from the first home, he
stayed at a couple of other places temporarily.

One day, young Clinton was walking down a road and was so discouraged that when
he came to a creek, he considered jumping in. A man on horseback rode up and
asked him where he was going, and Clinton said he had no place to go. The man,
Elijag [sic] Shriver, said that he had four girls but no boys and he needed a
boy so he took Clinton home with him. They were good to him and he stayed there
eight years. Elijah died and his wife remarried, so Clinton got in touch with
his father and they came to Kansas in 1876 or 1877 and took up a claim near
Cambridge in Cowley County. His father died several years later and was buried
in the Cambridge cemetery. Clinton's mother, who had remarried, came to Kansas
when she was old and sick and is burried [sic] at Cambridge also.

Clinton married Alena Baker, aged 24, when he was 30. They were married Feb.
28. 1886 by Reverend Goodwin in Moline, Kansas. Their four children were born
at the Cambridge farm -- Clinton Lee born Jan. 11, 1887 and died Nov. 22,
1960 -- Ernest Ray and Erma May born June 21, 1889 -- and Nellie Florence born
July 24, 1891.

Shortly after Nellie was born, a run-away horse tipped over the buggy and
Alena's hip was broken. It was many hours before they could get her to a
doctor. The hip was not set correctly and from that time on, she was badly
crippled. The family moved to Moline, Kansas and lived there two years and
then moved to the farm south of Moline in 1893 [possibly this should be 1895].
Alena died there in 1901 at the age of 39. Clinton died in May, 1934.

grown boys would throw him in the river and tell him to sink or swim. Sometimes
they would tie his pants leg shut, fill his pants with sand so he couldn't stand
up, then kick him around. Sometimes they made him sleep with the retarded girl
which terrified the little boy. After he ran away from the first home, he
stayed at a couple of other places temporarily.

One day, young Clinton was walking down a road and was so discouraged that when
he came to a creek, he considered jumping in. A man on horseback rode up and
asked him where he was going, and Clinton said he had no place to go. The man,
Elijag [sic] Shriver, said that he had four girls but no boys and he needed a
boy so he took Clinton home with him. They were good to him and he stayed there
eight years. Elijah died and his wife remarried, so Clinton got in touch with
his father and they came to Kansas in 1876 or 1877 and took up a claim near
Cambridge in Cowley County. His father died several years later and was buried
in the Cambridge cemetery. Clinton's mother, who had remarried, came to Kansas
when she was old and sick and is burried [sic] at Cambridge also.

Clinton married Alena Baker, aged 24, when he was 30. They were married Feb.
28. 1886 by Reverend Goodwin in Moline, Kansas. Their four children were born
at the Cambridge farm -- Clinton Lee born Jan. 11, 1887 and died Nov. 22,
1960 -- Ernest Ray and Erma May born June 21, 1889 -- and Nellie Florence born
July 24, 1891.

Shortly after Nellie was born, a run-away horse tipped over the buggy and
Alena's hip was broken. It was many hours before they could get her to a
doctor. The hip was not set correctly and from that time on, she was badly
crippled. The family moved to Moline, Kansas and lived there two years and
then moved to the farm south of Moline in 1893 [possibly this should be 1895].
Alena died there in 1901 at the age of 39. Clinton died in May, 1934.
