John Hampton BAKER870,3540 was born on 14 November 1791 in Washington, Warren Co., NJ.870 He was also known as John Hanus BAKER.870 He died on 18 November 1877 at the age of 86 in Bloomington, Grant Co., WI.870 John served in the military in the War of 1812 as a Drummer.870

In 1816 John LACY, Esz. had his estate read. The will named John BAKER and wife Mary, Richard LACEY, Rachel LACEY, Elizabeth wife of Charles MARSHALL and Martha wife of Jesse SMITH. John LACY's land was split amongest these named people. Which land was surveyed between that of his brother Garret LACY and Samuel BOWLBY.

John and Mary BAKER had ten girls.

After his marriage, John enlisted into Captain Benjamin COLEMAN's Company of Infantry, 2nd Regiment, New Jersey Detailed Militia, in the War of 1812. Held the rank of private, and served as the company's drummer. Joining him was his brother William BAKER. They served from 9 Sep. 1814 to 6 Dec. 1814. In 1870, BAKER applied for a pension due to a disability acquired in the war. He had a lame right foot. The injury was caused during a battle, when a British sword cut his Achillies tendon. He collected a pension from 1870-1877.

Sometime around the mid to late 1830's the BAKER family along with their son-in-law's family, John SLAGHT, began a series of westward migration that took them nearly ten years to complete, having stopped for a time in many states.

They first traveled to Michigan, by 1840 LaPorte, IN, two years later IL. finally 1848/49 in Beetwon, Grant Co. WI. He received 40 acres of land for military services.

Tradition states there were 2 more daughters who died in infancy and a son who stayed in N.J.

According to GLOVER family records middle name was Hanus He died 14 Nov 1877 and his father was Jacob BAKER who came to this country from Germany prior to the Revolutionary War. Her married Elizabeth SMITH. They had four children, Peter, John H., William and Elizabeth. He married Mary deLACEY (LACEY) 11 Nov 1810

A great deal of the BAKER family history was lost in the mid 1800's when John H. BAKER is said to have given his German printed family Bible to a local German immigrant who missed the old country. So to help her with her homesickness, he lent her his German Bible. What is unfortunate is that upon the pages in the Bible were details of the family history in Germany. The Bible has since been long lost.
(Possibly in possession of NJ Historical Society.)

What is known about the beginning of the BAKERs in America is that the immigrant was John W. BAKER (BAKKER in Germany) who was supposedly a cousin to the Prince of Hess. BAKER came to America as a mercenery soldier with the Hessians to fight for the British during the Revolutionary War, serving in the capacity of an officer. One tradtion states that he deserted the Hessian Army and fought for the Americans, but another tradition has him captured and made a POW.

During this time a Jacob BAKER and his brother, who were cousins to the Prince of Hess, were hired by the British to fight in America. Jacob BAKER left the British and fought for the Americans, for which services he was handsomely paid with 500 acres at Chillicothe, Ohio and 600 acres in Philadelphia, PA., plus a lot of cash. For those who can trace their fenealogy to Jacob BAKER, a large amount of money (300 million) is possible as being next of kin to him. It is possible that John W. is a son of Jacob BAKER, but to date, John W. BAKER's connection has not ben established.

After the war, BAKER settled in Sussex County, NJ, which was later divided and the lower half renamed Warren County in 1824, which is where he lived.

In 1790-1791, he is listed as a soldier in the local militia along with Samuel BOWLBY and John LACY.

John W. BAKER married Elizabeth SMITH and their children are: (see family page)

Settled in Sussex Co. NJ with Richard LACEY

According to descendants of Martha Baker GLOVER, (Cleone VAN WESTON)
The family left NJ in 1835 and arrived in Grant Co. WI in 1845. All of the daughters married prior to 1845 on the trip through several states.

According to Cleone VAN WESTON
Where were the eight daughters of John Hampton BAKER and his wife Mary Lacy BAKER baptized between 1810 to 1830? John married in Sussex Co., 1810, and was living in Mansfield twp. 1830 according to the 1830 census. Mary LACY who joined the Church 1822 may have been Mary Lacy BAKER's Mother. 1817 was the date that her Mary LACY's deceased husband's John was partitioned, naming Mary Bowlby LACY and Mary Lacy BAKER as heirs. Samuel BOWLBY's land joined John LACY's land

Julia Ann BAKER870,3540 was born on 25 March 1811 in New Jersey.870 She died on 9 August 1877 at the age of 66 in Wisconsin.870

In records from Wisconsin Historical Society, they list a Mrs. Julia Ann SLAGHT whose father is John BAKER and mother Mary BAKER to have married a John CLEGG born in Pennsylvania of James and Ann CLEGG on 24 Nov. 1867 by a justice of the peace. John was a farmer in Beetown.

Julia Ann BAKER SLAGHT, is listed as head of household in the 1850 Wisconsin Federal Census for Grant County. She too, as with her father, was residing in District 24. This census states that she was born in New Jersey and that her first two children, Sarah and John were born in the same state in 1834 and 1836. The family then moved to Michigan where a child was born, then to LaPorte County, Indiana where the family is listed under John L. SLAGHT, and another child is born. By 1842 the family is in Illinois where in this year Henry C. is born and two more sisters are born in 1846 and 1848. John died on 3 Apr. 1848 either in Illinois or probably in Wisconsin.

Julia Ann received land from her father, John H. BAKER. This sale is recorded in Book O. The sale took place on 2 Oct 1849 and was recorded two days later. The price for about a half acre was $25.00. Also on the same day she bought land from her brother-in-law, George W. HARGER, of 40 acres for $280.00.

With Julia Ann's family living in Wisconsin, it is not surprising that she then moves there to raise her family.

In 1856 Julia married for the second time to Jarius HARGER of Muscatine County, IA. on 10 Aug. Probably how this couple met is from her younger sister Clarissa who married Jarius's younger brother George Washington HARGER. Thus, the HARGER and SLAGHT families were combined under 1 roof.

In the land deeds Catherine SLAGHT, widow of John B. SLAGHT, deceased of Grant City, Wis. sold land to Frank Jacob SLAGHT on 26 Jan 1884 in Book 100. A few weeks earlier John Herbert SLAGHT sold land to Frank J. SLAGHT for a $1000.00. This deed in Book 99 reads;
"John H. SLAGHT & Ellen SLAGHT, his wife said John H. SLAGHT being an heir at law of John B. SLAGHT, deceased, his father sold to F.J. SLAGHT ... Subject to right of dower of the widow of John B. SLAGHT, deceased."

Julia Ann died on 9 Aug 1877. She is buried next to John CLEGG, her third husband, whom she married on 24 Nov. 1867 at Beetown. Her tombstone is broken and the elements have nearly erased the dates away. She may have died in 1870, for she isn't listed with CLEGG in the 1870 Wisconsin Census.

According to GLOVERlover family records her name was Juliana. Her birth date could have been 1811
