    Mr. Howard Sappington states on
    his tree listed on Ancestry.com that there exists a handwritten
    genealogy
    from Blithe Baker (son of Andrew Baker and Catherine Gentry - my
    husband's
    gguncle) and on this genealogy it states:
    ===
    The Blithe Baker Genealogy states on page 5 that "Grate Grand Father
    Baker Name Was John Baker, Grand fathers Name was Bolin Baker, fathers
    Name Was Andrew Baker and his Brother and Sisters Names Was Robert
    Baker, Wilim, Soosy, George, James, Poly, Easter, John, Annie. they
    come to Missoura in 1828 and Stoped a while in Howard, Co. then in
    Shariton, Co. then in linn." This page heading " St catherine Mo Jan.
    20, 1912" On page 8 he states: "My Grand Father and His Wife. Bolin
    Baker Bornd April 16, 1784 Dide 1840"
    (Compiler's note: Different handwriting inserts the date of "Aug 31"
    as a
    death date.) "Lizabeth Bunch, his Wife Don't Now her Age."
    Gwen, I am a descendant of the Bolin Baker b 1784 who md. Elizabeth
    Bunch in 1804 in Madison Co. KY and died in 1840 in Linn Co. MO. I
    have researched this line for many years and for a large part of that
    time I believed that my Bolin b. 1784 was the son of Bowling Baker who
    md. Patsy Morris and who served in the Rev. War, brother of George who
    also served. Then I read the Dickey Diary and knew it couldn't be. The
    Dickey Diary states that the Bowling son of Bowling left two children
    behind, fled KY and went to MO after killing a man. (I have the exact
    transcript). This was long after my Bolin and Betsy Bunch Baker and
    children (I have proof of 10) along with other relatives went slowly
    by wagon train to Chariton Co. MO. So, I began to search again for my
    Bolin Baker's (b 1784) father. My Bolin had, among others, a son named
    Robert who moved from Chariton Co. Mo to Linn Co. Mo. (adjacent
    counties). I have proof that this Robert is Bolin's son. In a history
    book of Linn Co. MO it states that this Robert Baker had an Uncle
    George W. Baker. There is much written about George W. Baker in Ralph
    D. Shipp's book A Baker Family Genealogy. I believe it is accepted
    that George W. Baker of Linn Co. MO is a son of John Renta Baker. It
    has also been a tradition among the Chariton and Linn Co. MO Bakers
    that George W. Baker and my Bolin Baker were brothers. So, I believe
    my Bolin Baker is the son of John Renta Baker. I know there is another
    Bolin Baker of that generation. He is the son of James Baker, bro of
    George, Bowlin, and John Renta. I don't know very much about this
    third Bolin. I hope Darlene Baker will contact me. I'd be happy to
    share anything I have with her.

    You have information on the wrong Bolin Baker. DNA # 27322, William
    Howard Baker, descends from the Bolin Baker born in 1784 who died in
    Linn Co. MO in 1840. The confusion is because we have two
    Bolin/Bowlin Bakers of the same generation. The Bolin Baker b. 1784
    who died in Linn Co. MO in 1840 was a brother of the Rev. George W.
    Baker. This information is in the Linn County Missouri History
    published in the 1880s. Therefor, he is a son of John "Renta" Baker.
    The Dickie Diary refers to the other Bowlin Baker, who was the son of
    Bowling Baker who married a Morris. This younger Bowling/Bowlin is the
    one who killed someone and fled the county. The Bolin Baker b. 1784
    left Clay County with over 100 relatives and friends, by wagon train,
    heading for Missouri. I believe this was in 1828. They were in the
    1830 census of Chariton Co. MO.

    As to the time the killing of Morgan Dezarns took place, I have some
    pages I copied at the Allen Co. Library in Fort Wayne, IN. I spent a
    day going thru everything they had on Clay Co. As you probably know
    they have a wonderful collection of periodicals there. I was rushing
    as I never seem to have enough time at that library and don't have the
    name of the publication. On pg. 13 begins a section written by Jess
    Wilson. The title is "The Allen E. Robertson Interview Transcribed
    with added notes in the Indented sections. By Jess D. Wilson. On page
    15 he begins with what I quoted above from the Dickey Diary. His notes
    are as follows:
    ===
    "The Killing of Morgan Dezarns
    ===
    "Some time before he went to Florida and died, Cousin Gilbert Baker
    came to my office in McKee and told me that Bowling Baker, Junior was
    a brother to his one great, my two greats grandfather, Rubin Baker.
    That Bowling, Junior married and lived on the head of Bear Creek. His
    wife died and he buried her on that creek. Then he went over on Beech
    Creek and got to courting a woman and got in a quarrel and killed
    Morgan Dezarns and the he got on his horse and rode to Missouri where
    he married and raised another family. From other information I have
    come to the conclusion that this happened, the killing of Dezarns,
    about 1845. If anyone has any additional information please write me."
    Notes for Bowling Baker, Jr.:
    From the Dickie Diary:
    "Bowling Baker, Junior son of Bowling Sr. was bound to Dough White to
    learn salt making and killed Morgan Dezarn with a single barrel pistol
    with 2 balls in it. He fled the county and never returned."
