Stillwater is a town in Saratoga County, New York. In 1816, the hamlet of Stillwater was incorporated as a village, and in 1859, the town of Mechanicville became a second village in the town. The eastern town line is the border of both Rensselaer and Washington County, designated by the Hudson River. It appears George ran a store in Easton, about 10 miles from Stillwater, in southwestern Washington County, New York. It is part of the Glens Falls Area.

This is a "hidden mother" studio photo. The baby's mother would be draped behind holding the baby up for the long 30 second or more exposure in the photographer's studio, quite a feat! An important DAR, Daughters of the American Revolution and SAR Sons of the American Revolutionary War family, it's a beautiful Baker family piece. This area of NYS has extensive Baker family ties. This photo was found in nearby Schenectady County, NY.
