Hannah Woodruff (Heaton) Baker (1801-1839)

Died, on Sabbath morning last, after a most painful illness, Mrs. Hannah W. Baker, consort of Dr. H. Baker of this place and eldest daughter of James Heaton, Esq. of Butler co. She was born in Green county, Penn., Dec. 14, 1801. Her parents emigrated to Ohio when she was an infant, since when she has resided in Butler and Warren counties. She was the subject of much affliction through life. In childhood, she suffered much from scrofulous affections, which sensibly affected her in after live. And for the last ten years she scarcely enjoyed a single day’s health. Her last attack was extremely severe, which she bore with much patience, in humble submission to the will of Heaven. After suffering for more than three weeks with scarcely any mitigation of her pain, having admonished and exhorted her friends to prepare for death; and having committed her family to God, and give to anyone her dying admonition, she expired without a struggle, a sigh or a groan. By this event, a husband and four children have suffered an irreparable loss.
Dr. Baker would take this opportunity to express his gratitude to his brethren of the medical profession; to those female friends of his late wife, who were so assiduous and indefatigable in their kind attention to her during her last illness; and to the citizens of Lebanon generally for their friendly offices during this scene of deep affliction. Of all those kind and friendly attentions he will ever cherish the most grateful remembrance.
