  1. This makes me happy to see someone care enough to provide a documented past of the area. I am fond of the “Flint Hills”. They provided many happy memories for my family and glad to see you making them with your family.

  2. In picture #10, Diamond Springs Depot, My Grandfather (Leo F. Clark) is standing in front of the depot. He was the Depot Agent at that time in Diamond Springs. Never seen this picture before. His first Agent job was in Burns, Ks and was transfer to Diamond Springs.

  3. I grew up in Skiddy and went to school in White City. Great to see these all these photos of the area!

    Thanks

  5. Ummm, WOW!! Still in the throes of processing the abundant information you have on your website to use big girl words! Thank you so very much for the rich history you have provided on my Baker/Huffaker family. To say that I had no idea is an understatement! But one thing keeps tugging at me, what happened to Judge Baker’s daughter, Sarah? Think I will do some sleuthing. Thank you!!

    • That is the one nagging question I have too! I have been corresponding with Mike Baker who is a descendant of Arthur’s brother. I have been doing a lot of research in hopes of writing a biography about Baker. I am especially eager to find any family descendants who may have information. Mike does a lot of filming and documentary work and is very interested in doing a documentary on Arthur Baker some day. Hope your sleuthing uncovers something!
