L. A. Baker, who died recently in Leicester, where he and Mrs. Baker have lived for the past year, was for many years the trustworthy caretaker of the cottages at Spring Grove, Camp Ground and he and his family occupied one of the cottages the year round. He was a respected citizen and made many friends here. Mr. Baker was a veteran of the Civil War and was usually present at our exercises on Memorial Day.
