Joseph Baker was my great-great-grandfather. He married Mary Gosman, and their daughter Anna Marie married William McDonald. The son of William and Anna, Paul, was my Dad’s father.
Joseph died at the home of the McDonald family at 933 South Street in Philadelphia. I don’t know if he was living there at the time or not.
According to his death certificate, Joseph was born in Germany about 1813 and is buried in Cathedral Cemetery in Philadelphia.
His obituary appeared in The Times, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, July 12, 1897.
