Dorset Man for Many Years Hotel Proprietor Was Civil War Veteran

Manchester, Oct. 8. - The funeral of George W. Baker, of Dorset, who died suddenly at his home Friday evening of heart failure was held Sunday afternoon under the auspices of William J. Fuller Post G.A.R. Mr. Baker has been failing for several months but it was not thought that his condition was serious.

Mr. Baker was born in Danby 70 years ago coming to Dorset in 1870 where he had since resided, and for many years was proprietor of the old Washington hotel now known as the Dorset Inn. Mr. Baker was a Veteran of the Civil War belonging to Co. A, 6th Vt. Vols. He was also a member of the Adoniram Lodge No. 42 F. & A.M. of Manchester, having been made a Mason in 1860. In 1853 he married Miss Jennie Williams, of Dorset who died four years ago. He is survived by one daughter, Mrs. John H. Sheldon, of Dorset.
