Christian's Grave in Hamilton-Wentworth

There is a cemetery search engine for Ontario that lists Christian as being buried in the old St Peter's cemetery here in Hamilton (Ontario). There are many Almas's there, and "Christian's" grave is at the front right corner (as you face the cemetery). You can see AN Almas headstone, but "Christian's" stone is down and partly buried (I usually dig up the edges each time I'm there).

The dates are hard to make out, but I am *certain* this is not the grave of OUR Christian, but of his son Christian Fredrick or possibly the grandson, Christian. I've recorded the dates, but have mysteriously lost the 3-inch bright blue binder in which my wife's genealogy notes are recorded.

Here is something else of interest, related to Maggie Baker: at the time she married Christian in New Jersey, there were more than one Henry Baker/Bacher, and at least one other Magdalena Baker/Bacher. At one time, based on a very tenuous connection, I had this Maggie and Henry pairing as the right one, and so had gone back many, many more generations. I wasn't comfy with it, so I'm back where most people are - stuck in New Jersey at a dead end.

Also, if the surname is 'Bacher' then his firstname might be 'Heinrich' and not Henry. And, further, I did find a notation online that her father's name was actually 'Jacob'.
