    Notes 
    Married:
    • There is extensive information on "John Renta Baker," his life and exploits - much of it questionable (and often confused with a different John Baker). I will not summarize it here (much is accessible on the Web), but research is ongoing to add some factual clarity to this man.

      Even his wife/wives/marriages are in doubt. While "Elizabeth Terrill" is always shown as his wife - this has never been proven. He is often shown has having 2-3 wives.
