I would suggest trying RAOGK for a lookup for birth and death records in the counties you are interested in. In Brown Co. There is a good genealogical library and helpful volunteers also.

A descendant of Joseph Baker indicated Joseph worked on roads and highways during the early 20th century; he went where the work was and the crews and their families lived in temporary shelters/tents while working at a site. This could be why he has not turned up in the 1920 and 1930 censuses.

Another family tree suggests several more children for them.
Including:
Alice Veda
Paul
Bobby Joe
Richard Walker
Bonita Lily
These have all died.
There are several living children, not named.
