Biographical history

Born in 1822 in Shelburne, Vermont, Harriet Eliza Clapp Baker was the mother of Malcolm Clapp Baker. she married William Stevens Baker in Woodstock, Vermont in 1845. Together the couple had eight children: Alfred Stewart Baker, Frederick Stevens Baker, Amelia Baker Stevens, Malcolm Clapp Baker, Mary Peckham Stevens, Emma Louise Baker, Harriet Baker, and Abigail Baker. Her first son, Alfred Stewart Baker, died only a year after his birth.

A "Harriet E.J. Baker" appears in the 1911 Census for Missisquoi County. Her age, 89 years, matches what Harriet Eliza Clapp Baker's age would have been at that time. Her birth date, October 1822, is also in agreement with the information contained in the "Family Background" file of this fond. The Harriet appearing in the census was listed as head of the household and was widowed. If this Harriet is indeed Malcolm Clapp Baker's mother, she would have died sometime shortly after the census was taken in 1911.
