Other surnames in query:  BREWSTER, NYE

I am searching for the parents of my GG Grandfather, Benoni Thompson BAKER.  Benoni was born May 10, 1833 Washington County, NY, town unknown.  Family history says that his fathers name was Parma Jay BAKER (mother's name unknown).  Siblings of Benoni were Martha, John, Jay, Lucy, Jane & Julietta.  The family migrated to McHenry County, IL in the mid to late 1850s.  Family history also states that Parma Jay was a widower at the time they left NY, he remarried in IL and a few years later, he and his wife moved to Harper County, KS.  The only info we have on Benoni's siblings is that John moved to Grinnell, IA, Lucy married an Ed NYE and moved to Harvard, Clay County, NE, and Julietta died of consumption in 1861.  Benoni married Julia BREWSTER in LaSalle County, IL and, years later, migrated to Indiana, then finally settled in Wheeler County, NE.  Would like to share info with anybody else that is researching or has info on this BAKER line.  (Query posted 4/8/00)  Bonnie James
