Your great granddaddy is not buried there but is buried about 2 miles down the road where his farm was located. He and his wife and a woman named Daisy are the only three. The graveyard is now near I-95. On your great granddad’s grave is Joe S. Baker. They called him Joe for short. His wife was Madorra Crumpler.”
