The Baker Cemetery is on a tract of two acres that was donated
to be used as a burial plot by Fredrick W. Baker to Samuel Slack
and trustees on 16 Apr 1878. It was located in the SW Corner of
SE1/4 of Sec. 22-25-7 in Troy Township.
Unfortunately, this cemetery had no care for several years. There
was evidence of nineteen graves at one time, but since then many
of the stones have fallen down or have been carried away. Today,
it is a small & well maintained cemetery with only eleven grave
markers remaining but there are indications there could be some
I walked and read all existing & legible headstones and markers
