PVT William E. Baker lived in Magnolia, Virginia (a small village in the now extinct Nansemond County) when he entered the service.  He gave his father, William E. Baker, as his next of kin. William was assigned to Machine Gun Company 116th Infantry and sailed with that unit to France aboard the USS Finland. PVT Baker was killed in action on 8 Oct 1918.


PVT Baker was repatriated in 1922 and re-interred in Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia.
