Obituary

Charles A. Baker

Charles A. Baker, a highly respected citizen of this city, and a Civil War veteran, died at 10:55 o'clock yesterday morning at his residence at 20 School street, following an illness of several months' duration. Mr. Baker was born in Georgia in 1842. Later, the family moved to St. Albans.

He married Emma Conner on January 1, 1879. To this union were born two daughters, Kate and Mabel, who died in childhood. Mrs. Baker died six years ago. For several years Mr. Baker has been a resident of this city, where he has acquired a large circle of friends. Although blind for the past 30 years he had borne his affliction with great fortitude.

Mr. Baker was a member of Stannard Post No. 2, and of Garfield Circle No. 4 of the Grand Army of the Republic.

He is survived in his immediate family by two cousins, Mrs. Belle Fowler of Colchester and Mrs. Helen Rice of St. Albans. Funeral services will be held at 2:30 o'clock Wednesday afternoon from his late residence at 20 School street. Interment will take place in the family lot at Elmwood avenue cemetery.
