Gravestone inscription reads: Mathias Baker Co. C. 2 WIS. INF.

Source: The Fairplay Flume Newspaper (Fairplay, Park County) August 29, 1913, page 1.

Note: The Alma cemetery and Buckskin cemetery are one in the same. The cemetery was originally called the Buckskin cemetery because it was located next to the original town of Buckskin Joe, now a ghost town. President Theodore Roosevelt approved the land grant for the cemetery to be used by Alma residents on 3/21/1902.


The funeral of Matt Baker was held at the chapel in Alma last Wednesday August 20, at 2 o’clock. The remains were laid at rest in the Buckskin cemetary (sic), which was Mr. Baker’s request.
Rev. W.W. Giberson of Breckenridge preached the funeral sermon.
The active pall-bearers were Art leaf, Hub Eddy, P.J. Johnson, J. Shuck, Noah Baldock and Harry Redford.
The honorary pall-bearers were J.G. Brooks, Hon. James Moynahan, John Ifinger, Sam Swartz, Ed Kilduff and J.J. Jacobson.
