Jackson of Seattle, seven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. Mr. Bakeman came to Snohomish in 1884 from Peshtigo, Wis. He purchased a 190 acre ranch just east of town, most of which he still owned at the time of his death. Mr. Bakeman was held in high esteem by all who knew him.
Funeral services will be held Sunday at 1:30 at the Bakeman chapel. The Odd Fellows' lodge, of which the deceased was a member, will have charge of the funeral, and burial will be made in G. A. R. cemetery.
John Bakeman married Louisa Dorothea Bartels Bakeman. The Bartels
and the Bakeman Families came from Crivitz, Mechlinburg (also Mecklenberg),
now part of Germany. His wife, father-in-law Crist Bartels,
three sons, George, John, Charles and one daughter Emily lived on their
homestead in town of Peshtigo, somehow surviving the Great Peshtigo Fire
of October 8, 1871 that took an estimated 1,500 lives. They continued to
live there until 1884 when the family moved to Snohomish, Washington) (notes:
