Biography of Dr. Cyrus C. Baker

The subject of this sketch, Dr. Cyrus C. Baker, was born in Roxbury, Delaware county, N. Y., January 28, 1819. Soon after arriving at his majority he began the study of medicine with his brother, Dr. John F. Baker, a homeopathic physician at Lebanon, Madison county, N. Y., whare he finished his studies and practiced until 1850, when he, together with his brother, removed to Batavia. Shortly after his arrival he went to Albion, Orleans county, N. Y., and practiced until 1863, when he returned to Batavia, where he practiced his profession until his death from heart disease, which occurred quite suddenly on the morning of July 17, 1887, he having been on the street only a few hours before. The doctor was one of a family of physicians, two of his brothers being physicians. He was a very conscientious, upright and quiet man, a man who never displayed his good deeds for the world to see, or talked about them for the world to hear. As a friend remarked, "If he could not speak well of a person, he never spoke ill of him." He was known by his deeds, and his pleasant smile and cheery words were almost as healing as his medicines. He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church and for many years a trustee of the church in this village, and at the time of his death was town and county physician. He left four children by his first wife: Frederick and Frank (both since deceased), Hattie and Mrs. John W. Pratt of Batavia. His first wife's name was Cyrinthea. Stokes. By his last wife (since deceased), a sister of the former companion, he left one daughter, Lulu M. At his death he left three brothers and two sisters, all having died since.
