Not very much is known about Daniel Baars except that he was born in September 1854 and married Ruthie Ann Clayton (born 1.7.1854) 9.12.1872. Ruthie Ann’s parents were Morris and Harriett Sharp Clayton. Daniel was a farmer and inherited his father George’s carpenter tools that George brought with him from Holland but nothing is known of their whereabouts today.

According to the 1910 census report, Daniel and Ruthie Ann had 7 children but only four lived into adulthood. Those four were: Lena, John Comer, Ida and Stanley. Daniel’s death has a “lingering” tragic note to it. His death notice states that he had a broken leg but we don’t know how his leg was broken. The fact that he had a broken leg was not the cause of his death. It was only a condition. According to the death certificate, while he was convalescing with the broken leg he contracted bedsores. The bedsores became infected and turned to gangrene. The death certificate states that the cause of death was: “Gangrene, following bed sores result of broken leg in old age and lack of proper nursing.” He was 72 years of age when he died even though his death certificate indicates that he was 78 years old. The certificate notes that he was born in Tennessee and that his parents “George” and “Lena” were born “over the ‘watters’ (sic).”

Ruthie Ann was a tiny woman who was noted for baking wonderful pies. Daniel was a farmer and died 4.1.1927 in Perry County, Tennessee. After Daniel died Ruthie lived with her son John Comer in Wheelwright, Kentucky for a short time. She moved back to Perry County, Tennessee and lived there with her son Stanley until her death on 7.1.1940. Daniel and Ruthie Ann are both buried in the Beardstown Cemetery, Perry County, Tennessee.
