Sept. 8, 1974 interview: The late Berger C Baker (893-1976) told me the following story:
Berger said that his father, John Hollinger Baker, helped to move Peter Baker's grave from the Mowery farm at Bakers Summit to the Keagy Cem. around 1910. They knew they had the grave when they found his buckle from the Rev. War. Today in the Keagy Cem. it is a stone with no writing and a Revolutionary War Flag at it base. Peter's son John Baker and wife Catharine were also moved.
