RE: Elizabeth Baker - Morefield Cemetery
It's okay. The name matched, so it would've taken a second look anyway. According to her obituary.. "Obit from The Sharon Herald, Sharon, Pa, Monday, March 29, 1915; pg. 5

Mrs. Elizabeth Baker; wife of Christopher Baker of Wheatland, died this morning at 2:30 after an illness of several weeks. Her children were listed by name but with held by me (original Ancestry.com submitter: gowinr1) for privacy. The funeral will be held from the residence, Wednesday, afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. Smith of the First M.E. Church officiating. Interment in Morefield Cemetery." -

She should be there somewhere.

Elizabeth Baker - Morefield Cemetery
The Elizabeth Baker (1871-1968) whose gravestone you photographed is that of Find A Grave Memorial #19252666... Elizabeth Hunt-Baker (1871-1968). Her husband, James Elijah Baker (1871-1954) of Find A Grave Memorial #19252652. Perhaps you can add your photograph that is much more easily readable to their respective memorials. There is one in place, but.. genealogically speaking, yours is more clearly detailed. Perhaps the cemetery office would have more information on the Elizabeth I seek. Her obit says she's there.. hiding somewhere.. lol.

Elizabeth Baker - Morefield Cemetery
Hello Rachel & thank you for taking the photograph that you did of James E.Baker (1871-1954) & Elizabeth Baker, his wife (1871-1968) in Morefield Cemetery. You did a good job, but I don't think this is the same Elizabeth Baker that I was seeking a photograph of...

The person whom I am seeking is Elizabeth Nancy Stewart-Baker (13 Sep 1857-29 Mar 1915). She married Christopher Gus Baker (~1854-29 Nov 1933) in about 1875.

Her obituary states that she is buried in Morefield Cemetery. Some online trees show her name as Nancy Elizabeth Stewart-Baker. I have little to confirm which name variation is correct.

I have the obit as I found it on her Find A Grave Memorial #84858572

Hazlett Yates
Thanks for your efforts to locate Hazlett Yates' memorial. I've contacted another member who happens to work at the cemetery. This member stated in a note on Hazlett's memorial that they knew where the memorial was located. Will let you know what I find out.

Tony
