  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Article - Thursday, November 15, 1877 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Some few days since, a party of old friends celebrated the eightieth birthday of Mr. T. C. Baker, at his residence in this village. Mr. Baker was one of the earliest settlers of Pulaski, having come here in 1817. In his prime, a man of great enterprise and activity, eighty years of varied life have left him an unclouded intellect and a pleasing _of knowledge and reminisces.

      Newspaper Article - Thursday, March 8, 1883 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - North Volney - Mr. Editor: I notice by the papers that Mr. Thomas C. Baker, an old resident of Pulaski, is dead. Mr. B., at the time of his death, was the oldest ex-county clerk, supervisor, and justice of the peace in Oswego county. He was appointed to the last named office as early as 1824, elected supervisor in 1827 and County Clerk in 1828. He it was who had the honor of naming the village of Pulaski, as he once stated in one of our "Old Settlers" meetings. I think I heard him say that he settled in your pleasant village, about 1818. The old "land marks" are fast, leaving us, and soon it will be said of others, "they are gone."
