The following is a list, sent to me, by Kuzzin Bill, some of the information is speculation, some of it is information which he compiled from other sources, and some of it, is information not on the above list, as the stones are no longer there or legible. I always welcome, any input, whether fact or speculation to help put the pieces together:

Joseph Hallett, died 1863, may have been a son of Nelson Hallett, and Mary Ann Baker Hallett.

Reverand Jacob Decker, died Jan 12, 1865, was perhaps a local minister.

Mary L. Hall, died 1862, may have been Mary Lewis Hall, and if this is so, she was a daughter of Cynthia Baker Lewis, one of Jeremiah Baker Jr.'s sisters.

Clarissa Preston, 1806-1862 and Newman Preston, January 8, 1795 - August 14, 1871.  Clarissa was a daughter of Thankful Baker Stephens, another of Jeremiah Baker Jr.'s sisters. (Stone/Stones were not visible.)

Jeremiah Baker, died Dec. 23, 1825, part of the stone that no is no longer visible:  "AE 78 Yrs, Organized the M. E. Church in Canisteo."

Jeremiah Baker Jr. April 18, 1791 - June 17, 1883 AE 67 yrs, 2 ms, 2 ds.  Stone no longer visible.

Eunice, April 17, 1794 - August 8, 1829 aged 35 years.  She was Jeremiah Jr.'s first wife.  Stone no longer visible.

Hector C. Baker, June 6, 1815-April 29, 1859, a son of Jeremiah Jr.'s. and Melissa is Julia Melissa (Stephens) Baker, is Hectors wife.

The Meehan list, which Kuzzin Bill has, notes a very worn stone of an S. Baker, followed by 188(last number illegible).  This may be Simeon Baker, a son of Noah Baker, a brother of Jeremiah Jr.'s  He was probably born in 1823.  A reason for this suggestion is that the next listing in sequence is for another of Noah's sons. Stone no longer visible.

James Baker, 1816 - November 27, 1901, at 85 years, Co. G., 86 Regt. NY Vols. James was a son of Noah Baker, brother of Jeremiah Baker Jr.

Julia A. wife of J. E. ____ (bottom of list above).. may be James Baker's wife.  The Meehan list has no dates but states  there was a flag on her grave, leading to the assumption that it is a GAR flag for James.

Hector Baker, stone no longer visible, probably a duplicate stone.

Charles D (or O) and Melissa Baker.  Charles was a son of Asa Baker.

Asa Baker, 1824-1909, son of Jeremiah Baker Jr., and Mary his wife, was former Mary Ann Otto.

Benjamin Crosby, died November 9, 1878, suggests that he was a son of Benjamin and Abigail (Powers) Crosby, the father, Benjamin being the son of Richard and Hannah (Baker) Crosby.

John W. Crosby (1850-1909) Identity not known, but an assumption is that he is probably a son of Benjamin Crosby and Roba Preston.

Elias S. Baker, born September 11, 1826, no death date on stone, because he moved to Minnesota).  He was a son of Jeremiah Baker Jr.'s.***** Sarah A. Baker, was his first wife, his second wife was Rose Andrews.

Anna/Anne Stephens Baker, "His wife Died Nov. 10, 1826, AE 78 Yrs., Captured by the Indians in the Wyoming Massacre and rescued by her husband."  The Meehan list omitted Anna. The stone at one time had been broken in half, and rejoined with two iron rods.  A small dead tree was directly in front of the stone.  It is no longer visible, could be covered over by dirt and grass but was found directly to the right of Jeremiah Baker's stone.
(Thanks to Kuzzin Bill a photo is now above showing a part of this stone!!!)

The Meehan Records add these names from the "Julius Hitchcox Funeral Books."

Hannah Minerva Dean Crawford**, May 12, 1822-Nov. 28, 1879.  The assumption is that Hannah is William Crawford's wife.

James Crawford** 1867-April 15, 1882.  (Birth date may be wrong as source writing isn't too legible.)  Born in Canisteo, Marker ordered by Daniel Ordway.

Daniel Marshall**, 1814-February 20, 1886.  Born in Wheeler Twp.,NY, died in Adrian, NY.  Marker ordered by W. H. Ordway.

Nancy Crosby, 1822-May 30, 1882, born in Canisteo, NY, died in Adrian, NY.  Marker ordered by Nathan Crosby.  Nathan was the son of Richard and Hannah Thomas Marshall Crosby, the second wife.  Hannah Baker Crosby died in 1812.

John Crosby, died Dec. 10, 1882.  Funeral was at the residence of Mrs. Stanton. Mrs. Stanton was Eunice M. Crosby, his mother.  The stone was ordered by Nathan Baker, one of Jeremiah Baker Jr.'s sons.

**The connection of these folks may be through Nathan Baker, a son of Jeremiah Baker Jr.'s.  He (Nathan) married Roxa/Roxy/Roxie Ordway.


A special THANK YOU to Kuzzin Nancy,  and Kuzzin Bill for all their help in piecing where each of these people go in the tree, and for reading over all the info, and sending me the corrections, and connections!  With all of the cemeteries I am still trying to enter here at the site, I wouldn't have had the time to do all of this alone!
