A journal belonging to Robert "Juder Bob" Baker states in the preface, that Julius Bob was an officer in the Kentucky Cornstalk Militia, disbanded 1810. Robert Baker [presumably the same man] served as a Lt. in the 2nd Regt of William's Kentucky Volunteers in the War of 1812. Robert and Bowling Baker, were both paid for the services of their horse and saddles on the March to Canada where they ended up at the Battle of the Thames.
This appears to be the same Robert Baker:
