John Baker and Martha Bailey did what was necessary to survive in a frontier society -- they remarried very quickly. A prolonged time of mourning for their deceased mates was a luxury they could not afford. Family legend is that Martha weaned little daughter Isa Bailey so she could nurse newly orphaned Louisa Baker.
The first child of the new union was born in 1848, a son named Isham, and a new daughter, Missouri Ann, arrived in 1850. Her name commemorated the familys move to Missouri, and some family members say that she was born in a covered wagon on the way.......
