Elsewhere in these pages occur references to Samuel Nixon BAKER, who emigrated from Shelby County, Kentucky to Parke County in 1830. He was born December 16, 1799 and died July 17, 1860. He was married to Catherine MOORE in 1827. She was born at Shelbyville June 11, 1801 and was the daughter of Abram Moore. Catherine Moore was a real "daughter of the Revolution" and at least a "sister" of the War of 1812. Her father, who was born in Lancaster Co Pennsylvania September 4, 1756 enlisted in Capt. William Washington's company of Minute Men at Shepherdstown Virginia April 29, 1775 - just 10 days after the battle of Lexington and as soon as the news could reach Virginia. He re-enlisted in Col. Smallwood's regiment in Jan 1776 while serving with the army then besieging Boston. He was in the battle of Long Island and crossed the Delaware with Washington December 25, 1776; reenlisted July 1, 1777 in Capt. David Poore's company at Frederick, Maryland for six weeks. Applied for pension 1833, pension granted June 10, 1833 Shelby County, Kentucky. Such is the military record of Catherine Baker's father in the U. S. War Dept; but her brother, John Moore who left home with his Kentucky. comrades when Catherine was 11 has no record beyond the word "missing." He was last seen by his comrades at the Battle of the River Raising January 1813, among the prisoners, and that night many of these were massacred by Indians. The children of Samuel N. and Catherine baker were Mary Frances (Strose); James Henry; John William; Samuel Nixon; Elizabeth (Catlin); Charles Holiday and George Clark. Their second son was Lt. John W. Baker of the 14th Indiana Regiment. James H. and Charles H. are living in Rockville. Samuel and Catherine Baker were zealous members of the Methodist Church in Rockville. Catherine died February 21, 1863 and at her funeral the Rev. William Y. Allen who was born one year before Catherine Moore's birth in the same town and had known her for almost 80 years said a beautiful tribute to the playmate of his childhood and the exemplary Christian woman whom everybody held in veneration. - 1816-1916 Parke County Indiana Centennial Memorial.
