Jeremiah Baker, Jr. was born about a mile above the present residence of his
son, Asa Baker, and is said to have been the first white male child born in
Steuben County. At the age of nineteen he married Eunice Powers, of Addison,
who died in 1829, leaving seven children. He married second, Hilda Stephens.
Mr. Baker's life was spent mostly as a farmer, yet as a citizen he was
intimately connected with many of the most important local improvements of his

town and county. He held almost every position within the gift of his
townsmen, and was deputy sheriff under the first sheriff of the county,
General George McClure, and represented his assembly district in the
legislature in 1835. He served on the Niagara frontier under Genral McClure
in the War of 1812. Two of his sons, Nathan S. and Elias, served in the War
of 1861.
