  • Myla lived in the Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells before she died. This in spite of the fact that her nephew Earl owned the hotel and they had only just recently (1948) settled a long lasting litigation.
  • Myla has no middle name listed.
  • Date of Birth here is 17 Sep 1873, not 17 Sep 1879 as stated in her U.S. Passport, but I believe that it is actually 17 Sep 1872 based on the earliest Census Records that I can find.
  • Washington, Iowa is in Washington County.
  • Father's name is W. R. BAKER, not William A. BAKER as stated in the 1880 U.S. Census) or W. A. BAKER as stated in the 1885 Kansas Census.
  • Mother's name is Luranah GRAYSON, not GIBSON as I had researched. (See T. B. BAKER's Death Certificate.)
  • Myla was buried in Fort Scott, Bourbon County, Kansas, USA, but the name of the cemetery is not stated. (See Myla BAKER's Grave Marker)
  • Thanks to MF for sharing a copy of Myla's Death Certificate. See The Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells, Texas.

Please Note: I am not related to the Baker family. I simply bought Myla BAKER's passport in an antique store then created a web page about it.
