Simeon H Baker

Simeon H Baker

Simeon H. Baker of Sparta Township. Longhand writing on back reads "Uncle Simeon Baker." The "H" may stand for Horace. Born in New York State October 24, 1816, died in Sparta March 21, 1891.

He may have been a son of John and Susan Meach (or Mercale) Baker of Clarence, NY.

1860 census lists him as a farmer living with wife Ann and son Jacob, 12 years. Farm was on the County Line Road, next to that of Jerry Baker, a distant cousin.

His wife Ann died, date unknown, and he remarried to Calista Stowell, daughter of Oliver and Wealthy Stowell. It was her third marriage, twice widowed. A Stowell history book states Simeon was a farmer and stone mason. Calista was a sister of Esther Stowell, Jerry Baker's wife.

Simeon and Calista are buried in Rose Hill Cemetery, Spartansburg.
