1. Fore Cemetery Marker
Inscription. Wiley Fore and his family came to this area from Alabama in 1883. The Baker community had been started two years earlier by Fore's nephew, Robert Baker, and his family. Soon after his arrival Fore organized the Bethel Cumberland Presbyterian Church and the local chapter of the Grange. In 1884 he donated a one-acre plot of land for use as a free community cemetery, known as the Fore Graveyard. The first burials were of two children of the De Luna family in 1884. The Fore Cemetery Association was formed in the 1950s to maintain the graveyard.
