Grandfather Baker Of Leicestershire

See Nov 6, 2016, post about Ann's Memoirs (included names of parents, Thomas Baker and Jane McCutcheon), also from the Memoirs of Ann [Baker] Carson (published in 1822):

Her [Ann's] paternal grandfather from Leicestershire, England, who, after the death of his wife, married his housekeeper.  Her Uncle Edward, unhappy with the situation, traveled to America with Ann's father, "then twelve years of age."  Edward, "disgusted with the new Country" returned to England while Ann's father stayed behind.
