Andrew Baker was a pioneer Baptist preacher of note who married into the Avent family of North Carolina and settled in southwest Virginia later in his life. His last church was Thompson's Settlement Baptist Church, still extant in Lee County, Virginia, and several miles from where Andrew is buried in a pasture in Van, Virginia.

There is some question about his Revolutionary War service, specifically if he was the same Andrew Baker who served in the regiment noted on his tombstone or one who served in another regiment.

All of his children, with the exception of the youngest daughter, Martha, who married Eli Davis and lived at Mulberry Gap in modern Hancock County, Tennessee, are listed in his Bible, which I have posted here. Martha is actually listed, too, on the next page. That page has been seen by living people but has been lost to researchers.

The only children of Andrew and Elizabeth are below:

Solomon, born 13 August 1770 Henry, born 14 August 1774 Andrew, born 18 February 1777 Joseph, born 8 April 1779 James, born 27 January 1782 John, born 15 August 1784 Nancy, born 10 January 1787 Elijah, born 8 May 1789 Martha, born 27 October 1791 Inscription: Ruddle's Regmt Rev War
