Obituary

DEATH OF WESLEY BAKER

Bethel lost one of its prominent citizens Nov. 28, in the death of Wesley F. Baker, of cirrhosis of the liver, with complications arising from malaria contracted in the War of the Rebellion.

Mr. Baker was born in Weybridge, and was nearly 62 years old. He is survived by his wife, Sarah (Neff) Baker, and one son Walter H. Baker, of Boston.

Mr. Baker had been a resident of Bethel, and for many years carried on the farm now owned by Merritt Brink. About twelve years ago he moved to this place in Bethel Village, where he died, and had since followed the occupation of a carpenter.

Funeral services are to be held today, at his late residence, Rev. J. Hall Long officiating. and will be attended by the members of the I. O. O. F. and the G.A.R., of which organization Mr. Baker belonged, being Commander of Daniel Lillie Post G.A.R..
