I have a cousin (my mother's older sister) who was born in Baker.

As the story goes, the family was originally Lock/ Locke but had to "maaih ji" (as "Lee") to get into the USA.

Was also rumoured that the Patriarch Lee dealt in opium.

I traveled through eastern Oregon this summer and visited a Chinese museum near Baker. Most of the Chinese in eastern Oregon were railroad workers.
