RE: Lets hope the old man didnít die in the poor house
This is just amazing! Who needs soap operas? And of course she married the lawyer, how else to take care of the attorney fees! Great job on ferreting this stuff out. I just recently found some articles on a distant connection who traveled to England and Germany in the late 1800's to claim her share of a multimillion dollar estate.

I noticed that, about him being a doctor. Don't know what that means if it is indeed Leon, maybe he had Alzheimers...

I hadn't seen the news article you sent, did see one where she had filed suit but never could find more on it.

Thank you so much for this wonderful information! I had no idea who Leonard's parents, etc., were. Do you know if the Ann E. Weld and Leon C. Weld buried in Green-Wood Cemetery are them, or if he's the Leon C. Weld who was living at the Suffolk Co Almshouse in 1910? Donna

RE: Charles Henry Baker
Thank you for sending all that. I found those same things in Rose Neighborhood Sketches and the extensive Van Valkenburg history on the National Assn. of Van Valkenburg Families website.I live in CA since 1962 but go back to NY occasionally. I was last at So. Sodus Cemetery in May, 2013 after having a Civil War Vet flag marker placed on Abraham (Abram)H. Van Valkenburg's gravesite. I recently downloaded all data from my Family Treemaker to if you are interested in Truman's branch.

RE: Charles Henry Baker
Then you and I are cousins of some degree. John James Baker, Zorada Louisa Baker Ackerman, and Truman C. Baker should be linked as siblings. Do you know where their parents came from?

RE: TRUMAN CLARKE BAKER...Nephew of yours?
Thank you for all the information in the last 3 messages. Yes, it appears John J. Baker (#38015692 administered by Carol Chambers) and Zorada Louisa Baker Ackerman were siblings to my ggg grandfather Truman C. Baker. So the younger Truman Clarke Baker would be a nephew. Sally Baker in the estate notice is probably a sister or sisterinlaw but I am not sure where she was buried. I grew up in Wayne Co., NY where all of Truman C.'s family was. Since John J.'s family was in Michigan since 1854, I never heard my family talk about them. I notice you are the administrator for many in the Baker family. Did you want someone else to maintain those memorials if you are not related to this Baker family in NY or Michigan?

RE: John J. Baker of Ransom Centre, Hillsdale county, yours?
Apparently John J. Baker and the others mentioned in this notice have some sort of relationship to Truman C. Baker, but I have no record of what that relationship is. My great great grandfather Andrew A. Baker (1829-Feb.5,1860) in So. Sodus NY cemetery is the only child of Truman C. and Mary Crandall Baker that I knew of.
