Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

The great sleuthing of site readers identified Minerva Walton Baker and found her buried at North Ten Mile Baptist Cemetery in Washington County, PA. Today, we see her husband, Daniel Baker. Daniel was born in Amwell, PA September 4, 1832 and lived in that general area until his death January 29, 1910. Interestingly, his marker at North Ten Mile Cemetery indicates 1909 as his year of death.

He was married to Minerva Walton Baker February 12, 1857 and they were together until her death in 1894. November 13, 1895, Daniel remarried to Mulvina “Vina” Miller (1852-1931). I don’t know much more than that, except to say that Birdie was born after the marriage date, so we can assume she was the child of Daniel & Vina. This photo was originally owned by his grandchild, but I have no way of knowing who that was. Should a family member find this site, I’d be happy to return this and the photo of Minerva to family. Be sure to click through to Minerva as I updated the page with all of her children.
