I remember that my father told how his mother refused to pay money into
what became the Baker Fraud, while her sisters did and lost it (she had
a brother also, I do not remember him being mentioned). Ours was an
Adam Baker/Catherine Miller line of Lehigh Co PA.
I have some tracing on the family, if anyone is interested.
