Publisher, New York: Lewis Publishing Co.: "Colonel John Baker Smith, eldest son and child of John and Abigail Baker Smith, was born December 2, 1789, in Beverly, Massachusetts, and died in Salisbury, New Hampshire, January 3, 1859, age 70. He was brought by his parents to NH when 5 years old. He lived in Bradford and Unity until March 1828, when he moved with his family to Salisbury to take care of his mothers brother, Benjamin Baker, after whose death he bought out the tavern stand of John Shepherd, which he kept at various times for a long period of years. The house became extensively known as Smith's Temperance House, as at that time it was an unusual thing to keep a public house and not sell liquor. In 1832 he served as deputy sheriff. His title of colonel was due to his appointment to the command of the 16th Sixteenth New Hampshire Militia. He married, July 4, 1813, Hannah Huntoon, who was born in Unity in 1793, and died May 1, 1850, aged 87, the daughter of John and Susannah Chase Huntoon. John Huntoon served at Ticonderoga and was a captain in the Revolution. He was born at Kingston, January 4, 1753, and died in Salisbury, at the age of eighty-five. He was the son of Charles Huntoon, son of John Huntoon, son of Philip Huntoon, the common ancestor. The children of John Baker Smith and Hannah Huntoon Smith were: John C. Smith and Nancy M. Smith"
This is a beautiful old historical photo of John Baker Smith 1789-1859, who died at age 70. It is rare and wonderful with great New Hampshire history. He died in 1859, thus this photo would have been a copy of an earlier daguerreotype or ambrotype photo of the 1840's to early 1850's. This is an important DAR, Daughters of the American Revolution and SAR Sons of the American Revolutionary War family.
