William was the son of Isaac Baker born in Grayson Co., VA* and died in Powell County, KY. he was the son of Elijah Baker place of birth unknown, he died in Estill County, KY. he was the son of Reverand Andrew Baker.

I can find little documentation for Elijah Baker but as a child my grandmother always told me that he was Isaac's father. Elijah is said to have married Sarah (or Sally) Jones but here again, documentation cannot be found in VA or NC.  I find Elijah Baker in Kentucky for the first time in the 1850 census of Breathitt County; he was apparently a widower at that time.  He is reported in the 1860 census, and the Estill County census in 1870 at age 84. He does not appear in the census reports after that.  

*Documentation from Isaac's second marriage (documentation from the first marriage cannot be found) states that his father was "born in
Grayson, Co., VA".

     
I would appreciate any information others may have about this line!
