Jim Baker 1818-1898. Trapper, scout & guide, was one of the west's most colorful figures. At 21 he headed for the annual rendezvous in the Rockies. In 1841 he was in a desperate fight on the Snake River when 35 trappers beat off a large band of Sioux. The decline of the fur trade in the 1840s drove many trappers to quit, but Baker stayed on. Little is known of his movements after 1844. He was chief scout at Ft. Laramie in 1855. In 1873 he was in Colo where he built a cabin with a guard tower.
