George and Alpha Baker in Friona, TX

George and Alpha Baker in Friona, TX

Posted: 1317162985000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Baker, Bradley
I was wondering what cemetery George and Alpha Baker are buried in? I found in a genealogy book that my grandfather's brother wrote that they are both buried in Friona, TX. I have tried Findagrave.com with no luck. Alpha is a sister to my great grandfather. She was a Bradley. She married George Madison Baker on March 6, 1906. George and Alpha had 13 children according to the gen. book. They both moved to Friona, TX after the birth of their last child in 1926. George and Alpha are both found in the Social Sec. death index. George died first on Jan. 9, 1972 in Friona, TX. Alpha died on Nov. 11, 1972 in Lubbock, TX. If I can find out what cemetery they are buried in, I will set up a memorial for them on findagrave. Just to let someone know that is interested, Alpha (Bradley) Baker's parents are buried in Cocke Cemetery in Williamson County in southern Illinois.
