Notes on David Baker - Taken from the book "Baker Descendants and Relatives" by Gertha Baker Stark -
His mother was pregnant with him when they left TN and he was born MO.

He lived his entire life in Feuersville Community, west of Cooper Hill, MO.

He was a gentle, mild mannered and good accommodating neighbor. He was a tall, big framed man and had large ears and hands.

By today standards he and Emily Roak married quite young - he was seventeen and Emily was thirteen. During their early married life they made their home with his mother, Sarah, until they could afford to buy a place of their own.

He set up the David Baker Cemetery on his farm. He selected an acre of ground on a hillside close to a wet weather stream that is surrounded by timber. A very quiet, serene place. The road to the cemetery is rather steep and very rocky, making access with todays vehicles very difficult. It is not known who was the first to be buried there because the records have been lost; but, it seams reasonable to assume David and Emily second child, Nancy Baker, was the first to be buried there. Four of their 12 children, who died in infancy, are buried in a row that became known as the "baby row." He and Emily were buried in the row just behind where his mother, Sarah, is buried.

As life long members, their lives were centered around the College Hill Baptist Church. They are not listed as charter member but are named on the association minutes dated May 1876, the year the church was organized. David served as Deacon for many years and his brother John served as the Church Clerk.

He served in the Civil War as a private in the 28th Regiment of the Enrolled Missouri Militia Company B.

His best friends and pals were Stephen and William Jet.

In David's estate there was listed a family Bible and other books valued at two hundred dollars. The family Bible was passed to Timothy, their youngest son. It is now in the possession of Timothy,s youngest daughter - Laverne 'Baker' Shall.

Nancy Ellen [Baker] Jett may have died before MO began issuing death certs in 1910.
