Richard married Mary Winfree on 18 Dec 1895 at the Baptist Church in Crockett, Texas. She was the daughter of Judge E. E. Winfree. At the time of the marriage Dick Baker was living at Virginia Point, Texas near Galveston where he was the telegraph operator. The couple lived there initially after the marriage. Source: W. R. Long

Crook, Miss Lucy May Baker; Tom Craddock, Miss Ethel Wootters; Walter King, Miss Mary Wootters; Arch Murchison, Miss Vergie Gaddy; Arch Burton, Miss Minnie Craddock.
