Edmund Baker (1789 - c1840) is though to have been Ebenezer Foote, the son of Simeon and Lovisa Bacon Foote. Family tradition says that he and an as of yet unknown brother were in the U. S. Army and killed an officer. Both then changed their names from Foote to Baker and set out for the southern frontier to hide out. Ebenezer changed his name to Edmond/Edmund Baker, Baker being his grandmother's maiden name. He ended up about 1811 in what was then Maury co., TN. Either there or on the way there, he met and married, Rebecca Phillips, who was an "Indian princess". He lived on the side of the Natchez trace, in what is now Lewis co., TN. He served in Capt. In William Creel's Co., Chatham?s Reg't of west Tennessee militia infantry in the war of 1812 as a private. He evidently saw no fighting. No evidence has been found that he or his widow applied for a pension or land grant. We have not found that he ever owned property or was mentioned in county records, except for a Maury co, tn tax records for 1817 and in a Lawrence Co., TN tax list in 1832. Warren Foote, a cousin who became a Mormon, wrote in his journal that "Ebenezer Foote went to Alabama and we never heard from him again". Two of Edmond?s children, Jonathan and James J., were born in Alabama in 1819. The recent identification of Ozro Baker, a son of Edmund Baker, who seems to be identical to the Ozro Foote who is listed in the Foote history lends much credence to the Ebenezer Edmund story. Evidence in the first Foote family history, originally published in 1849, indicates that the Foote family was still in touch with Edmund Baker and his family at that time. In 1837 he is listed in a state census of Ponatoc Co., MS. In 1840 he was living in the community of Mt. Pleasant in northern Marshall Co., MS. The date of his death in unknown but he seems to be dead before the 1850 census. His wife and most of his children are living in Columbia Co., AR by that date. His name is spelled both Edmund and Edmond.

I am seeking proof of the Baker/Foote connections.
I am descended through Edmund's son, Stephen Pelzer Baker (1815-1885), through his son Patrick Henry Baker(1845 - 1921), through his son Robert J. Baker (1876 - 1937)

My African American Foote line was first located in Abbeville Co, SC.  However, our primogenitor Isaac's birth state was listed as VA on the 1880 census.  There is some evidence that they were enslaved under Williamson Norwood until his death in the late 1840s.   Additional info can be found at

I descend from Leah Foote Lee.  We haven't found any direct line male descendants of Isaac b c1822 or Thomas b c1825.  A y-chromosome test has been ordered for a ggg grandson of Wade b c1833.

Isaac Foote, b c1800 MD, m Leah
     Isaac Foote, b c1822 SC, m Minda
          Dennis Foote?, b c1862 SC
          Armistead McDuffie, b c1864 SC m Mariah Johnson
          Leah Foote, b c1866 SC m David Lee
          Caroline “Callie” Foote, b c1870 SC m William Howard
          Emmaline Foote, b c1875 m John Rollinson
          Isaac Foote, b c1878 SC
     Thomas Foote, b c1825 SC, m Chainey
          Augustus Foote, b c1860 SC
          Rosetta Foote, b c1862 SC m Samuel Quales Brooks
     Wade Foote, b c1833 SC, and Lettie
          Henrietta Foote, b c1855 SC
     Wade Foote, b c1833 SC, m Mahala Ellis
          “Shinky”? Foote, b c1862 SC
           Sylvia Foote, b c1865 SC, m William Belcher
           Emmaline Foote, b c1867 SC, m ? Winn, m James Lee
           Wade Fletcher Foote, b 1870 SC, m Ellen Belcher
                Thomas Foote, b1895 SC m Vanilla
           Clark Foote, b c1874 SC, m Hattie Wright
           Thomas Foote, b c1876 SC
           Hannah Foote, b c1879 SC
           Kittie Foote, b c1882 SC m William Hester, m ? Smith   

This seems to have lost the indented formatting, so I spaced over.

From an email sent by J. David Brandenburg [jdb AT]:

Kit # 174851

John Walton Foote

m. Sally Chief


Walton Gilbert Foote

m. Mary Jane Crockett, daughter of Robert Crockett and Sarah Johnson


Margaret Samaria Foote (b. Temple, Carroll County, Georgia, 29 May 1875; d. Gadsden, Etowah County, Alabama, 29 May 1954)

m. Monroe Elias Smith Browning (b. Union County, South Carolina, 25 Nov. 1871; d. Snead, Blount County, Alabama, 07 Nov. 1944)


Cornelia Pearl Browning

m. Paul Thompson


Pauline Thompson Arrington


This Foote family lived in West Georgia and in East Alabama. That is about all that I know of them. Pauline's Aunt Vera, a sister to Cornelia, published a genealogy of their family in about 1981, and that is the source of the above information. The book is Shadows of the Living by Vera C. Browning Kimball.
