Baker Family Cemetery - Springhill Twp.

Contributed by Gordon Baker 2005

Directions: Starting at the intersection of Rt 119 and New Geneva Road (Rt 166) at the north end of the bridge over the Cheat River in Point Marion, go east on Nilan Road for 2.9 miles and turn left on Lake Lynn Road. Go 0.5 miles and turn left on Baker Road. The cemetery is somewhere around here. Some tombstones are there but others can no longer be found. It is possible there are many others buried in this cemetery. Dan Baker told me in 1964 that many tombstones had been knocked over and destroyed by a gang of boys many years earlier.
