Death of Thomas Baker I

According to my Grandfather James Baker, son of Thomas Marion Baker and grandson of Thomas Baker I; my Great Grandmother Eliza Jane Dishon Baker, wife of Thomas Marion Baker, the only child of Thomas Baker I, born not long after his father's death; and my mother, Emma Jane Baker Flinspach, it was often told that Thomas Baker I, was out clearing trees on his property in early spring and had not taken his gun with him. He was attacked by a "rabid" wolf and chased to the door of his log cabin. His wife, pregnant with their first child heard him shouting, and he fell dead at her feet. Whether he had bled to death or died of heart attack cannot be verified, but he was attacked by a wolf. Of course, at that time no death certificates were printed in German Township, so I rely on the story I heard told by my Great Grandmother Dishon Baker, my Grandad Baker, and my mother.
The Wolf

Although we do not know if this is accurate, this story has been handed down through the family and was told to me by David Kissel.
Thomas Baker was to have been chased by a wolf which caused him to die from a heart attack.
