I have information on the descendants of Palmer BAKER, son of Freeborn and Jane BAKER, of LeRay twp. After having four children in NY, Palmer, his wife Charlotte, and their kids moved to Wisc. It appears that there were two Freeborn BAKERS in Jefferson Co, beginning about 1810, first in Hounsfield twp, then Watertown, and later LeRay. The youngest Freeborn BAKER, the third by that name, served in the Civil War. Palmer BAKER also named a son Freeborn.

In 1848, in a letter of administration from the Surrogate's Court of Jefferson County, New York, to John CAULKINS of Lorraine Township, New York, there is made mention of several of Joel CAULKINS' (John's father) grown children. One of these children is named Isaac and is recorded as being a resident of Genesee, New York.
My Great great great grandfather is, according to the records that I have been able assemble, Isaac CA(U)LKINS, who was married to Sarah PETTIS of Boston or Charlestown, Massachusetts. Isaac and Sarah CA(U)LKINS had several children, one of which might have been Joseph D. (DISBROW?) CA(U)LKINS, who is in my direct line of descendency.
Can anyone help me connect Joseph D. CA(U)LKINS to Isaac CA(U)LKINS, I've been trying for 20 years without success.
