Pioneer Sikeston Couple Observe Their 65th Wedding Anniversary

Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Baker Sr., pioneer Southeast Missouri residents, quietly celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary Saturday at their home on North Kingshighway.  No formal celebration was staged, the couple's seven children, all of whom live in Sikeston, being with them a portion of the day.  

In addition to being married 65 years, Mr. Baker, who was 87 years of age Tuesday, has made his home on the same plot of ground for the past 73 years, settling there in 1867.  

Mr. Baker was born near Nashville, Tenn., February 20, 1853.  

When but three years of age he, together with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Baker, started to Southeast Missouri and settled at Wagner Ferry, where his father bought land, fifteen miles south of Sikeston.  

In 1867 Mr. Baker moved to Sikeston and established his home on the land where he continues to live.  He was one of Sikeston's earliest settlers and soon became a prominent farmer, grain dealer and land owner, and from time to time was identified with other interests.  During the administration of President Cleveland, he served as postmaster of Sikeston.  

Mrs. Baker (Eunice Jane Green) was born August 2, 1856, in Ballard county, Ky., and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James D. Green.  When she was 14 years of age the Greens moved to Belmont, Mo., and lived there a short time, later moving to Charleston.  Some two years later they came to Sikeston and established their home a mile and a half south of town.  It was at this place that the couple were married in 1875.  

Mr. and Mrs. Baker are the parents of nine children, seven of whom are living.  They are J. W. Baker Jr., Grover C. Baker, Mrs. Nora Dudley, Mrs. Susie Hinchey, Mrs. Cora Allard, Miss Florence Baker and Mrs. Maggie Harper, all of Sikeston.  

In 1925 Mr. and Mrs. Baker formally celebrated their golden wedding anniversary, with a large gathering of relatives and friends.

William W. Hinchey died Aug 23 1942, Manchester Nursing Home, St. Louis, St. Louis County, Missouri; buried Masonic Cemetery, Ironton, Iron County, Missouri.5
