boy, at the
age of fifteen, landing in New York, and was soon among the most ardent
lovers and faithful citizens of the great republic. As a mariner
in American ships across the Atlantic ocean, visiting the principal
of Europe and America, and was in the war with Mexico. He was
on the U. S.
transport ship Monterey, of Vera Cruz, at the time of the siege, this
November 8, 1848, he sailed from New York for California on the U. S.
transport ship Iowa, in company with eight other transport ships, having
U. S. troops on board under command of General Bennet F. Riley, the
provisional Governor of California, under the acquisition of that territory
by the United States, his flag ship and head quarters being the Iowa,

arriving at San Francisco, March 14, 1849.
Subsequently Baker sailed in coasting service for a short time between
Francisco and Santa Cruz, then struck out for the California gold diggings

He traveled up to Smiths' Bar on the American river, just below Doten's
where he met with merely average mining success, and for about twenty
he was backward and forward between the mining region and salt water.

overseer at the Califorina (sic) State prison at San Quentin.
In July 1860, he came to Nevada from Benecia as wagon master with a
thirty-five U. S. government wagons, loaded with supplies for Fort
Subsequently he went with the California column, 3500 soldiers
where he was post wagon master at Tuscon, for several months.
For about four
years he rode pony express between Fort Yuma and San Diego, across
wastes and among hostle Indians and on his return to California took
train out to Star City, Humboldt county, in this State, for Col. C.
Snowden and Majoy Kyle.
In August 1863, Baker came to the Comstock lode, and soon got into regular
employment as brakeman at the hoisting works of the Gould & curry,
Yellow Jacket and other leading mines, following this occupation for
ten years. Then by way of variety, he turned his attention to
department and became city jailer at Virginia.
At an early hour in the morning of August 14, 1872, he, with others
police, detected a burglar on the roof of a C street saloon and in
climb up an awning post after the fellow, Baker accidentally fell,
heavily on his shoulders and back. Partial paralysis was the

to te(sic) time of his death.
He recovered sufficiently in about a year after his accident to serve
watchman in the U. S. Mint Carson, for two or three years, and subsequently
kept a small cigar and variety store.
He married at Benecia in 1858 and leaves a son, formerly yard master
S. P. R. R. at Wadsworth, and a daughter, married at Butte, Mont, also
