  • 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.
  • Myla is buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Fort Scott, Bourbon County, Kansas, USA. See her  memorial and grave marker.
  • Father's name is probably correct on his grave marker (William A. BAKER).
  • Mother's name is probably correct on her grave marker (Luranah Baker).
  • Mother's maiden name is GRAYSON, not GIBSON as I had first believed. See T. B. BAKER's Death Certificate.
  • 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.
