Thank you very much for the information. It kind of looks like that the Baker's could have had a lot to do with the making of the Kentucky Long Rifle. I would say that is a vital piece to the operation of the rifle.
It appears that we are on the same direct line of our Baker family.
One of the Baker's moved to Arkansas from Knox Co. Kentucky John Franklin Baker and I am a direct descendant of his.
Thank you sounds like we are cousins.
