Burial:   
     Place:   Sulphur Springs Cem.

Individual Note:
     According to Lucy Miller Dodd's notes, from conversation with son J. Frank Baker: Susannah Hall married Thomas Cosser, a native of England. They went to Texas where he was killed by Indians. She, and a friend whose husband was also killed, buried both men with their own hands. She returned to Illinois the same year with friends in a "prairie schooner"; was on the road 3 months with 4 mules. They drove all day and into the night. If they could find some low land back from the road, they would drive away from the trail, get supper and put out all the fires so as to hide from the Indians. One man stayed to guard the mules because that was what the Indians wanted.
According to the Early Settlers of Sangamon County, Thomas Cosser went to Navarro County, TX in February of 1860 and Susannah followed a year later. Thomas went into partnership with Major H. P. Darling and a Mr. Smith, in the business of Wool growing. They were engaged in sheep shearing at Laredo, near Ft. Macintosh, Webb County, TX in April 1866 went they were both killed.

Alias:   Frank /Hall/

Burial:   
     Place:   Sulfur Springs Cem.

Individual Note:
     Frank, as he was called, was probably born at the "Thompson Hall" homestead (built by Thompson Hall) in Loami Township, just north of the line with Talkington Twp. See Robert T. Hall's bio for full description. The post office box has always said R.R. Auburn.
According to Jennie Hall's diary, Frank started building his house south of the drive (in Talkington Twp.) in August of 1911, finishing before Christmas and before his marriage to Margaret.
After his early death, it is thought that the Lowry boys farmed the land till son Robert was old enough to farm.
