JASPER WARREN BAKER, Ohio County. Among the most prominent and respected of the first settlers of Ohio County were the ancestors of this gentleman, whose father is the Hon. I. H. Baker, a sketch of whose life is given elsewhere. Mr. Baker is the only son, and was born April 21, 1846, in Beaver Dam Precinct. He has given his attention to farming, and now owns a good farm with substantial buildings near Mercer's Mine. He also owns a coal mine, which is worked by the Mercers, and has proven very remunerative. Mr. Baker was married June 19, 1867, to Ann Eliza, the seventh child of Thomas O. and Amelia Austin. They have seven children; John H., Amelia Belle (deceased), Thomas O., Robert Luther, William Cloud, Charlotte and Floris Owen. Mrs. Baker is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and an earnest Christian lady.

  1. I was wondering if you have access to the Biography of Charles Valentine Christian of Ohio Kentucky- born in 1836- He is listed as being described in the impossible to find Kentucky A History of the State book. I also have Boyds, Whites, Tuckers, Dawsons, and Shreves all from Ohio County Kentucky- Would love to know if you have any information on any of them as well. Thanks!
