  • Notes 
    • History of the Town of Cornwall, Vermont, in a list of families settled there before 1800.

      Page 284:
      BAKER, TIMOTHY (as head of family)[spouses of children listed if known]
      Fanny married J. Douglass
      Phebe
      Clarissa
      Oliver
      Rhoda
      Rebecca
      Lucy
      Alpheus*
      Irene (Cerena on most charts)
      Nancy
      William
      Luman

      Timothy's wife is not mentioned. It is noted that Timothy Baker, deceased "about 1812", had a large family. He sold the first house they lived in and built a second one nearby. There is a notation in "History of the Town of Cornwall, Vermont" that Timothy Baker and Daniel Foot, in 1791, sold a lot south of Elisha Hurlbut. It was also noted that Timothy Baker settled on a farm opposite Elisha Hurlbut, indicating that these were two separate properties. After Timothy's death, William Hurlbut bought the property. Cemetery records show death date as May 10, 1816. Timothy served in the Revolutionary War and his son Alpheus was involved in the War of 1812.

      DAR Chapter House in Cornwall, Vermont, has a plaque listing Revolutionary Soldiers Buried In Cornwall: among them was Timothy Baker. Although Remembrance Baker was involved with Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys, it appears Timothy Baker was with a prior group still in Massachusetts.

      Timothy Baker is buried at Cornwall and Weybridge Parish, located on Route 30 (Cemetery Records of Addison County, Vermont: Cornwall, Vol. II)

      If Prudence was born in 1750, there is a problem with the children listed; that is, Prudence would have been 62 years old when the last child was born. Since the History of the Town of Cornwall, Vermont, lists Timothy Baker and all of his children, but does not include name of his wife, perhaps he had two wives, which would account for the gap in birth dates. However, since death records available in Ohio differ, I would tend to go along with several other trees (have not found any actual birth record for Prudence Brook) which suggest birth date as 1760, (she was christened in Jun 1760, Northampton, Hampshire County, Mass.). Prudence is buried at the Brandon Cemetery, Miller Township, Knox County, Ohio.

      After Timothy's death in 1816, the home property was sold and Prudence accompanied several of her children to Ohio. Since those who served in the War of 1812 would have received Bounty Land Grants, it is reasonable to believe this was the motive for relocating to Ohio as that area had been opened up for settlement as Bounty Lands.
