To reach this cemetery, from Partridge drive south on Hwy 50 go about 8 miles, then go about 3/4 miles east on Pleasant Valley Road (or) from Pretty Prairie go about 3 miles west on Pretty Prairie Road, go about 3 miles north on Partridge Road, then go about 1/4 mile east on Parallel Road, then go about 2 miles north again on Partridge Road, go north about 3/4 miles east on Pleasant Valley Road. The cemetery sits on the north side of the road.
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 unmarked graves.
I walked and read all existing & legible headstones and markers on Sep 15, 2007.
