According to an October 1, 1902 article in the Chester Times, this reunion was in celebration of the 50th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Edward D. Baker, "two of Edgmont township's eldest and most venerable people…'Uncle Ed,' as he is familiarly known, brought out his violin, and despite his advanced years played some music which set the feet to moving involuntarily....A feature of the day was a great photographing scene, in which the entire company posed in front of the camera of photographer S. H. Appleton, of Media. Among the lot were two old ladies, who were invalids, and who were wheeled in front of the camera....Mrs. Baker was Miss Lydia A. Cummins...sister of the late James R. Cummins...and an aunt of Dutton Otley Cummins, of Media....Mr. Baker...was a noted baseball player in the early sixties. One child of their union is Jesse R. Baker, the genial storekeeper at Gradyville..."
