NOTE:

In the following panels, I have organized the children of J.S. Baker in ascending order and numbered them accordingly going from I to X (which does not the coorespond to the number in the album directory). I've copied the text from the photo album for each panel and will add more as I find it.

I have added a code to each picture that identifies the location of that individual within the family tree (eg. the second child of the third child will have the the code (3.2) and that child's eldest child would have the code (3.2.1) etc
[Code from Joseph Standard Baker Memoirs ]

I plan to add dedicated pages for each child's family as this site progresses and evolves.

J. S. Baker Photo Album
dtd. 1901

"I started looking through my dadís old stuff and spotted a photo album of our Baker ancestors in 1901. This book provides a fine window back, presenting the foundation figures of our family, a good primer before next summerís Baker Family reunion. The album was in fine shape and the pictures looked good even before I cleaned them up. I've started with what the exterior of the album looked like, then went to the quite useful pages outline who and what are in the pictures before the pictures. I've lined up the Bakers up with the oldest families first, a bit different from the album. I don't have everyoneís emails so please forward these on to any interested family members Iíve missed. I'm breaking this up into two emails."
