A List of 'Friends and Neighbours'

(PLEASE NOTE: The names below are grouped by first letter and are listed just as they appear in the album.)

On Saturday, December 12, 1896 Edwin Isaac BAKER and his children - Ruth, Alice, Nellie, and George Joseph - boarded the United States Mail Steamer 'Paris' in Southampton and steamed to New York. (To see photos of the ship's passenger list, click here.) After passing through the gates of Ellis Island, they headed for Chicago where they temporarily lived with Edwin's brother, Caleb Jason BAKER. Later Edwin and George moved to Kansas City.

In March of 1897, friends and neighbours of the Bakers' old home presented Edwin Isaac BAKER with a hand-painted, hand-printed album with the names of 227 'subscribers' written inside. Below is the text and the list of names.

"Hailsham, Sussex, England, March 1897
to Mr. E.I. Baker

This album with an accompanying Draught was presented to Mr. E.I. Baker by his friends and neighbours as a mark of respect and the kindly feeling with which he is remembered. They recall with pleasure his readiness to serve all classes alike and the cheerful energy with which he sought to promote education, temperance, philanthropic, moral and religious objects at home and abroad. With this memento they desire to extend to him their earnest wishes for his happiness."

(Unfortunately, the "Draught" was lost somewhere along the line.)
