Baker, John (3)
Baker, John (3), a Congregational minister, was born at Edgecomb, Me., May 30, 1811. In 1831 he graduated at Bowdoin College, was converted and took charge of Monmouth Academy. His theological training was acquired at Andover and Bangor. He commenced his ministry at Monson, Me., in 1835, where he was ordained. In 1839 he removed to the town of Kennebunkport, supplying the two churches there for fourteen years. His next charge was Wilton; after preaching here four years, he left to visit his family connections in Edgecomb, never, as it proved, to return. He was stricken with fever and erysipelas while at his early home, which proved fatal Oct. 27, 1859. Kind, patient, cheerful, Mr. Baker was "a brother beloved." See Cong. Quarterly, 1860, p. 237.
