We take the following notice from the Dowagiac, Mich., Republican. Mr. Baker lived for many years in Forestdale, where several relatives now reside.
"Perry Baker of this city, died of neuralgia of the heart on Friday the 6th. Mr. Baker was born in the state of Vermont, Dec. 11, 1816. In 1855 he removed to this state, settling first in Hartford. About eleven years ago he became a resident of this city, and has remained here since that time. His death was very sudden, he having been apparently in his usual health up to the last moment. On Friday morning he had been moving around the place as usual, and was preparing for a bath; he had sat down upon a lounge to wait while his wife was preparing the bath. Mrs. Baker, while thus engaged was startled by an unusual sound from the sitting room, where Mr. Baker was waiting, and hastening to his side she found him dead. His wife, one son, and one daughter survive to mourn his loss. The funeral sermon was preached by Ed. Dewey at the Christian church.. The services were held at the residence on Center street, Sunday morning, and were attended by a large concourse of sympathizing friends."
