Mr. Baker, who is one of the efficient trustees of Richland township, Defiance county, was born there on September
24, 1852. His father, Andrew Baker, was a native of Germany, whence he came to this country, and in Defiance county,
Ohio, married Mrs. Anna (Wertz) Boston, widow of Charles Boston. They are still residents of Richland township,
where their entire married life has been passed. They have reared quite a large family of children, of whom our
subject is one of the younger members.
Reared in Richland township, George Baker acquired his education in its public schools, and since reaching manhood
he has followed farming there, he and his brother now successfully operating a good farm of two hundred acres.
He was married in that township, September 6, 1882, to Miss Margaret Hein, a native of Germany, and to them have
been born four children, as follows: Anna, Joseph, William and Sarah.
Mr. Baker was first elected trustee in the spring of 1895, and so acceptably did he fill that position that he
was reelected two years later. He has always been identified with the Democratic party in politics, and as a public
spirited, enterprising citizen, he takes an active and commendable interest in public affairs. In the Catholic
Church he and his family hold membership.
