History of the Ironworks Baker Brothers
From our research the Ironworks Baker brothers removed from Carter Co, TN on “Little Doe” Creek first appearing in 1823 Campbell Co, TN. Harris Ryan sold George, James, William and Bowling Baker a parcel of land on the west side of Grants Creek which became known as “Bakers Forge”. Their father probably is William Baker or a James Baker but this is not proved at this time. Genetic testing in the Baker DNA project prove these Baker’s are not related to our Humphrey Baker family. They DNA match John Baker Sr and his son William Baker of the 1830 Claiborne Co, TN Census. At least two of the brothers moved to Missouri after 1840.
