Rhoda Ann Thompson Baker

Genealogical and census records prove that the Baker family came to Utah in 1850. They had a child born in Iowa in 1849, then they were on the 1850 Federal Census in Utah and had a child born in Utah in Sept. 1851.  The obituary of Amanda Baker Higley, daughter of Rhoda and her husband George, says that the family traveled to Utah with a company of California bound emigrants.
