BAKER - I'd be interested in anyone that can help dig up info on the following paragraph taken from a BAKER paper written by Callie Baker Weisiger in 1912. "____ Baker came to this country (USA) from England with Lord Baltimore, who established a colony North of the Potomac about the year 1635. The lands were granted to Lord Baltimore by Charles II of England. Baker at one time was a surveyor for BOND and WHEELER, who were great land proprietors. He married Ann FELL, a daughter of Edward and Rebecca FELL. From this marriage came our lineal ancestor Charles Baker I." Does anyone know anything about 1. the WHEELER, BOND, or FELL families. 2. how land was granted from England. 3. Lord Baltimore's arrival to the U.S. I'm sure there is a ton of info out there in the libraries, but if anyone could give me a jump start, I'd greatly appreciate it.

He was a mariner in 1860 census of Baltimore; a fisherman in 1870 census of Annapolis. He was in Civil War 1861-65 with Co."A", 1st Reg't. MD. Inf. Volenteers. Rev. Henry Furlong of the M.E. Church Baltimore Annual Conferece married them in Caroline's parents' (John & Pheobe BROWN) home. Believe Rev. Furlong was retired from the minstry at by 1858. Their children were: John T. RUSSELL b. 7 Jun 1859 Baltimore; Elijah J. RUSSELL b. 12 Feb 1866 who became a physican in Baltimore; Allen Travers RUSSELL b. 26 Dec 1867 Annapolis who moved to IL., m. in 1893 there but divorced and moved back to MD. & remarried, was in Denton, MD. with new wife & child in 1920 census, Allen was a civil engineer.

Looking for any information at all on my gg-grandfather, Elijah James RUSSELL. He was born about 1832 in Penn. per the 1860 census of Baltimore. He was a Civil War Vet. He married Caroline Brown on 4 Aug 1858 in Baltimore. He died 4 Oct 1872. They had 4 children; John T.(b. 7 jun 1859), Elijah J. (b. 12 Feb 1866), Allen T. (b 26 Dec 1867), and one more (name unknown) Allen was born in Annapolis and his 2 older brothers in Baltim. Caroline was born Mar. 1837 in MD. (probably Baltimore) to John & Phebe BROWN. The RUSSELL's lived in Baltimore in 1860 with her parents. Both Elijah James RUSSELL and John BROWN were "mariners" then. The RUSSELL's were living in Annapolis in the 1870 census and his occupation was "fisherman". The RUSSEL's were still living with the BROWN's in 1870, but Caroline's father, John BROWN, was not listed (believe he may have died). Caroline never re-married after Elijah James (he may have gone by just James) died. I have copies of his pension files. Please forward any info on either of these RUSSELL's or BROWN's. I am really wanting to know about them, especially Elijah James RUSSELL. John BROWN was born about 1801 in MD. Mrs. Phebe Brown was born about 1807 in either MD. or CONN. Also note: Elijah James and Caroline were married in her father's home by Rev. Henry FURLONG. He was a minster of the M.E. Church Baltimore Annual Conference, but have reason to believe that he was retired before preforming this marriage.
