San Saba (San Saba County)
The San Saba County Historical Commission will dedicate an official historical marker for Jim & Ellen Baker on Saturday, October 22, 2016 beginning at 11:00 a.m.
The ceremony will take place at the San Saba City (Oddfellows) Cemetery off State Highway 16 just one-half mile north of its intersection with U. S. Highway 190 ( at the “downtown” stop light).
The Bakers were early day Texans and pioneers of San Saba County. They became well known (real) cattle barons of West Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado, eventually pre-empting a large tract of land in the Texas Panhandle which eventually became a part of the JA Ranch controlled by their contemporary, Charles Goodnight. Anyone interested in learning about their role in this adventurous and industrious era is certainly invited to attend.
