Richard Henry Burden was born in Clay Co. MO, the son of Robert Henry Burden and Eliza Turnham. His father died when he was two years old and his only brother died nine years later.

He married Prudence Samuel in 1861 in Clay Co. MO. They moved to Clifty, Madison Co. AR about 1875, then moved to Oklahoma Territory in 1892, settling 5 miles NW of present-day Macomb, OK.

Richard and Prudence were the parents of Richard Henry Lee Burden, William Fielding Burden, and Anna E. Burden.
