Hi, I came across your post on rootsweb and think I can help some. I am directly related to the Baker's and the Schlie's from the "Blue Township" in Missouri. My father's aunt (Frances)married Charles Baker. (My father was Willard Schlie) They all grew up on Tennessee Ave. in what is now the west side of Independence, Mo. At one time it was called Athol, or Mt. Washington. The Fraas', Schlie's and Baker's all lived on the same street. I believe many of the Baker's still do. My Grandfather's name was Julius Schlie who was married to Anna Reminger. I'd be glad to answer any questions you may have.
Good luck on your searches. You can reply to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
