Baker Genealogy of Narraguagus Valley Maine

Among the very early settlers at Steuben Maine was Lemuel Baker, who came from Roxbury, Massachusetts. He must have come about, or soon after, the time that the Leightons came. He married a Tracy, sister of Mrs. Thomas Leighton, 2d, and Mrs. Deacon Stevens. He settled near the shore of Joy’s Bay, on what is known as Baker’s Point, afterwards near where the George Baker house is. By his first wife he had four children.

  1. George Baker died unmarried.
