Seeking info on Lafayette Baker, believed to have been an officer in the Civil War, serving the U.S. Army in TN. Family legend says he was a captain, but no positive proof. He is believed to have been serving on the city police force in Washington, DC, after the war, & is believed to have been “in” on the assassination of Pres. Abraham Lincoln. This legend has been handed down through many years, & has been told as “truth,” but can find no records on this. Any help will be sincerely appreciated.

Charles Baker and Kate Day were my g-gparents. Charles was a farmer, and they lived and died in Parker, Miami County, Kansas. According to the funeral home records they are buried in the "Quaker Cemetery", however a GNIS search does not reveal any cemetery, by that name, in Kansas. This leads me to believe that the name used in the records reflects a local reference to a cemetery with some other official name. Can anyone help me with identifying the "name" of this cemetery? If this is a secular cemetery, would I be incorret in assuming that Charles & Kate were members of the Quaker community? If so, then tat would give me another lead to follow, and I would be thankful for any advice in that regard.

Don Baker

I am contacting you for my father-in-law, Mark Baker in Castine, Ohio. He wanted me to pass some info to you about the lost Baker records in reference to the,"HOAX".

Mark has made some headway in locating some of the records and is currently following up on the new leads. He also wants to let you know he is planning on creating a book on his Baker genealogy including his research into the Baker Hoax records. He does not plan on giving away this information and would like to speak to you about his ideas on what to do with this information.

Mark has not become internet saavy yet, hopefully soon I will be able to coax him into investing in a computer for his personal use. If you need his contact information please email me, however I gather that you and he have traded much information in the past and you already have his address and number.

Mike Hawkins.
P.S. If you come across any information on a Hawkins line in Ohio please forward to me.

NOTE: Mike, I'll answer Mark as soon as I finish Vol. #10! I'm working 10-14 hour days, 7 days a week right now to get Vol. 10 done. I have Marks' address. He knows I'll help any way I can. Thanks for the E-Mail! CJ
