Before the Civil War (1861-65) parts of Baker in turn formed all or parts of Calhoun, Dougherty, Miller, and Mitchell counties. The county was named for Colonel John Baker, a Puritan and hero of the Revolutionary War (1775-83)."--"Baker County" from the New Georgia Encyclopedia, http://www.georgiaencyclopedia.org (Viewed May 26, 2010)
