These reconstructed crock fragments were recovered from the Baker house in Morris County by the Emporia State Teacher's College (now Emporia State University) archeological field school in 1972. The crock has partial advertising for the E. C. Martin pottery of Camp Point, Illinois, along with a "3" indicating it was once a 3-gallon crock. The exterior of the fragments, reconstructed by students from the 1972 field school, has a salt glaze and the interior has an Albany slip. The collection was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1993. The Baker store and nearby house were situated along the Santa Fe trail. The owner, A. I. Baker, was murdered in 1862 by "Bloody Bill" Anderson and his cohorts, who also burned the store and house.

Date: 1862
