Lorain Newcomb Baker death 1883?

A reader wrote the following: 

Lorain NEWCOMB was born 14 Feb 1814, Shoreham, VT, the daughter of Luther NEWCOMB, Jr. (Newcomb Genealogy #363) and Narcissa BABCOCK. She married Michael BAKER. Newcomb Genealogy states she died 22 Feb 1883 and gives no location. She is found in Mattoon, Coles Co IL in the 1880 census (ED 55, page 42, as Laura Baker) living with their married daughter Amelia (Mrs. John Rauch). I wish to verify date and place of death.

  1. Lorry (Laura) Baker is buried in Dodge Grove Cemetery, Mattoon, Coles Co., IL (age 71, died 2-24-1885). Her husband Michael Baker buried there also (age 79, died 9-30-1881). I am interested in any information about their daughter Josephine Baker b 16 Mar 1838 Columbus, Ohio, m Mahlon Votaw 25 Jan 1855, Greenup, Cumberland Co., IL, died 6 Dec 1858 Greenup, Cumberland Co., IL.
