Letcher stated he knew George Baker when he lived in Clay Co Ky and that he was a man of truth. Elisha Williamson Bowman, a clergyman, and William Morris, certified the deposition of Boling Baker. Abner Baker was clerk of the court. He is believe to be a different Baker family.

The Baker Family DNA projects have ruled out any possibility that his father is the son of Robert Baker. The descendants of the Rev. Andrew Baker, John Renta Baker, Bolling Baker, and Morris Baker all have matching Y-DNA. None of the descendants show any proof of Native American ancestry in their autosomal DNA.

There are no records that indicate that Andrew Baker was married to Mary Bolling. The deed and survey records for Andrew Baker show that his wife was Susannah..
