The Baker Family of Aberdeen, Maryland(1983)
The Bakers of Aberdeen, descendants of a colonial era Nicholas Baker, were perhaps the most prominent family in that community in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. They were leaders in the canning industry, in government, the Methodist Episcopal Church, farming, banking, publishing, academia, and real estate. They built imposing Victorian residences in Aberdeen and established the local cemetery which bears the family name and contains a number of large monuments to mark their final resting places. The purposes of this article, a summary of more extensive genealogical data collected by the compiler, is to provide a sketch identifying the members of the first seven generations of the family and their relationships, as well as noting a few relevant facts about the most notable among them.
