There has been so much written about the Baptiste Peoria family. One thing that comes to mind is the fact that "Mother" BATISTE (note spelling) did not move to Indian Territory (OK) with her husband, Baptiste Peoria. She stayed in Miami County and is buried here. Like Eleanor Roosevelt, "Mother" BATISTE was a person in her own right. She had her own ideas and was valued for the person she was. Not for the person her husband was!
Walter is listed among several other JOHNSONs, which I include here in case they are related. I cannot tell from the book if they are all contiguous graves. It appears to simply be a listing of all JOHNSONs in the cemetery (much like an index listing). Is says the information in parentheses is from death records and not from the headstone reading.
