About the Bakers, I don't know if this will be of help to you. I am
descended from Thomas Baker who m Dorothy Davenport, dau of Martin Davenport.
Thomas was from Culpeper Co., VA, b Chester Co., PA 8 Jan 1711 and d
Culpeper Co., VA 10 Jan 1777. His parents were William Baker and Mary
Corbie. Thomas and Dorothy were m in 1734 and had children: William, Thomas
Jr., d 1790 in Burke Co., NC, Mary who m my gggggrandfather, William Mallory,
Martin, Crotia, Josiah, Henry, David, Dorothy, Richard, James, John, and
Mary Corbie was b ca `690 in East Haddam, Middlesex Co., Connecticut and d 12
August 1734 in Culpeper Co., VA.
Parents of William Baker, fa of Thomas, were Samuel Baker and Elinor Winslow.
The parents of Samuel were Alexander and Elizabeth. Parents of Elinor were
Kenelm Winslow and Eleanor Newton Adams. Samuel and Eiinor were m 26 Dec
There were several Baker children who married Davenports. When researching
these people, it seems they were all closely related in Virginia. After the
death of my Thomas Baker, his wife, Dorothy Davenport took her minor
grandchildren (children of William Mallory and Mary Baker -who had died) and
went to NC. It is not clear if William Mallory accompanied them or not.
However, he did die there in 1779 and his will was probated in Wilkes Co.,
I know this doesn't seem to fit into your family, but I thought you might use
these names, etc. to perhaps make some connection.
One Martin Baker came to Texas (Weatherford) where he joined his brother,
Charles. One settled in Grapevine, Tx. There is a Davenport web site (don't
know the address right off), but you may be able to find some info on your
Bakers there as I would bet that yours are connected in some way closely to
the Thomas Baker line.
