Baker Genealogy - Western North Carolina

Genealogy > Baker

Welcome to my Baker genealogy pages. I am interested in the Baker surname in western North Carolina, primarily in the counties of Rowan, Wilkes, Ashe, and Lincoln.  I have only limited interest in the Baker surname in other western North Carolina counties (see list below).

Baker Family Pages - Each Baker family has their own web page, complete with all documentation I've found so far.  The link will take you to the surname index. Find the "Baker" surname and click on it and an index of all individuals will be displayed. Or you can use the search engine (to the left) to find a specific family or person.

My Ancestry (two distinct lines)

  1. Olly Baker (1760/65-1840s) and Aaron Cox. Olly and Aaron married in 1787 in Lincoln Co.,  NC. They lived there a number of years before moving to nearby Buncombe Co., NC, then later to Haywood where they were last found. I currently have no strong leads on who her parents were, nor any potential siblings.
  2. Capt. Jacob Baker (c1760/65-1830s) and unknown wife Jacob Baker isn't a proven ancestor of mine, but I *think* he's the father of Mary Margaret Baker (c1790) who is my proven ancestor. Jacob lived in Rowan, Wilkes and Ashe Co., NC and *possibly* in Cherokee Co., NC.
  3. Mary Margaret Baker (1790-1858) married Jacob Fouts (1786-1852) in Ashe Co., NC. They lived there several years before moving to Macon Co., NC where both died.
