Here is a mystery for you.
Joanna Baker was born in New Rochelle, Illinois back in 1862 to Ridley and Mary. Both of her parents were teachers and linguists. At the tender age of 4 she was fluent in Greek, Latin and French as well as the English language. A little later she also picked up German. By the time she was 8 she had read several works in the original languages, some of them by Homer and Virgil.
In 1870, the family moved to Algona, Iowa where she enrolled in Algona College. In 1878, when she was 16 she was hired as a tutor of Greek at Simpson College in Indianola. At 18 she published an original translation of Plato’s Apology. In 1881, she enrolled in Cornell College, Iowa graduating in just one year with an A.B. she went on to DePauw University, being hired as an instructor of Latin, staying just one year before moving back to Simpson College where she stayed for more than a quarter of a century teaching ancient languages.
In 1919, she moved to Painesville, Ohio taking the position of professor of Latin and Greek at Lake Erie College. She was still on the faculty in 1922.
After that no-one knows what happened to her. I found where she was reported to have died in 1935, in Delaware, but no actual proof of her death can be found.
