Fairy Baker's Home Page

Updated August 10, 2007

Fairy Elizabeth Baker is my given name. Fairy is an unusual name today but I have found lots of Fairys in the SS index in before 1925. The name appears in our family several times.

Most of our family located in Indiana, Michigan and Ohio by 1885. The Garrison's and Bakers were in Ohio by 1816.

The names in my tree include BAKER; GARRISON; COOPER; EWING.
