There is a small cemetery on Goose Creek approximately eighteen miles northeast of Baker. It is located on a dirt road off of State Highway No. 86 on a privately-owned farm. The plot is known as the Goose Creek or Keating Cemetery.
This is a very early farming community and near the mines. We have been unable to learn who donated this plot of ground for burial purposes. There are relatives or friends nearby who keep these graves in fairly good condition.
