I am searching for more information on David S. Baker (b. IL 1833), who was living in Cottonwood Twp of Tehama Co CA in 1880. According to an IL court probate record, he came to CA about 1853 and remained in close written contact with his family in IL until about 1862. Now that I've discovered that he was still living in 1880, my questions are these:
--(1)--Can someone give me census data for David Shelby Baker (b. abt. 1833 IL) for 1860? 1870?
--(2)--The 1880 census said he was farming. Where in the county is Cottonwood Twp? What is the terrain there?
--(3)--Are there any death/burial data related to David S. Baker, his wife (in 1880) Eliza Baker, or previous wife? David and Eliza would have d. after June 1880.
--(4)--Is there a marriage record for David's daughter, Mary L. Baker (who was 19 in 1880)?
Thanks in advance for ANY help that is available. I'm too far away in KS to follow up otherwise. --N.
