Baker, Peter F
Baker, Peter F.
a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in 1790. He experienced conversion early in life, and entered the Genesee Conference in 1814. He gave early evidence of superior talents, but adversity soon beclouded them. In 1817 he was prostrated by inflammation of the lungs, which terminated in a lingering consumption causing his death, April 23, 1829. As a preacher, Mr. Baker's original turn of mind and powers of eloquence were much admired. See Minutes of Annual Conferences 1831, p. 120.
