She died in 1862 of cholera,Benjamin died 1867 accidental drowning in Philadelphia.They had a son John Baker around 1860.After Ellens death Benjamin married Anna(Annie)Barry from Canada they had a two children Richard Joy Baker and Catherine Adelia Baker.After Benjamins death Annie married Joseph Shead from Middlesex England they had two children Thomas Edward Shead and Joseph William Shead.I dont know when they all got to England ,but in 1879 they left England for New Zealand on the Stad Haarlem. Thomas only 11 died in NZ.1882.A few years later they all moved to Melbourne Australia except for John who went back to the states,I think he spent his final years in L.A.I am still looking for Ellen's maiden name.
