I found this obit in Van Buren County Democrat of Feb. 11, 1937.

Rev. Taylor, pastor of the local Church of the Assembly of God, and Mrs. Taylor was called to Lelsie Monday of last week to attend the burial of the former's grandfather, W.T. Baker, 80, who died at his home in Leslie the previous night from pneumonia. Mr. Baker, a well known Searcy County citizen was one of the few survivors of the famous Mountain Meadow Massacre and escaped with his life only because he was an infant. He was only three months old. His parents were among those slain in that bloody episode of Arkansas history. Rev. Claude Jenkins of Clinton conducted funeral services.
