Custodial history

The Baker family was one of the earlier settler families to arrive in Vaughan Township, emigrating from Somerset County, Pennsylvania. Jonathan Baker purchased Lot 11, Concession 2 (the lands northeast of present day Dufferin and Langstaff) in 1816 and quickly grew his family and his harness shop trade. Various Baker descendants lived on the subject lands until the family farm was eventually sold to developers in 1997. The majority of the Baker family moved back to Pennsylvania following the sale of the land.

Scope and content

Collection consists of 3.5cm of textual materials, including paperwork regarding Mennonite Consciencious Objectors newsletters from work camps, non-resistant Relief Organization letters, National War Services Regulations and information regarding the Baker and Cober farms. Of particular interest is a 1918 letter to the Commanding Officer at Exhibition Camp, Toronto, regarding Isaac Baker, asking for his release from military service.
