CAPT. REMEMBER BAKER,
copy of a Supplemental paper of Alice May Van Deuser Corlett
Natl. No. 74082.
“In the commencement of the Revolutionary War, he
entered the army.
He arose to be an officer before the war closed and
gained much distinction by his bravery and discretion. Baker was with Allen as a
captain at Ticonderoga, and also with the Regiment of Green Mountain
boys, when the invasion of Canada was begun in the Fall
Montgomery’s operations against St. Johns, Canada, he went forward
to reconnoiter the position of the enemy. When within a few miles of
S. John’s, he secreted his boat with the intention of marching
through the woods. He
had scarcely left the boat, when a party of Indians too possession
of it. He called upon
them to return it. Hard
words passed, when one of the Indians fired, and shot him through
the head. The Indians,
who appeared to have an old grudge against him, then cut off his
head and put it on a pole.
The Americans gave them a guinea to take it down that they
might bury it. Thus
died Capt. Remember Baker, Jr., at the early age of
