Australia, Electoral Rolls 1903-1980 lists
Richard Rowe Richards in1913 at Mount Usher, Mount Morgan, Capricornia, Queensland
He is listed as a miner and also listed are Sarah home duties, Richard Rowe Jnr, William John miner, Mary Sarah home duties.  Not possible to tell whether they are one household

In 1925 Richard Rowe Richards is living at Baree, Livingstone, Capricornia, Queensland with Mary Sarah.  He is still listed as a miner
In 1925 Richard Rowe Richards Junior is living at Mount Usher, Keppel, Capricornia, Queensland listed as a miner and also with William John Richards miner, Sampson James Richards miner and Alice Louisa Richards home duties

This looks like him with wife Sarah Mary and son William J.

http://www.archives.qld.gov.au/Researchers/ImmigrationIndexes/Documents/Cloncurry_1886_Feb_to_1886_Aug_QSA_Item_18483.pdf  (page 7)

Richard married Sarah CURNOW in 1883:

Marriages Sep Quarter 1883 
CURNOW, Sarah
RICHARDS, Richard
Penzance, Cornwall
Vol 5c  Page 436

Death of their son Richard in Queensland:

1925   C4808
Richard Rowe RICHARDS
Father: Richard Rowe RICHARDS
Mother: Mary Sarah KIRNOW

I thought that perhaps Mary Sarah had been previously married but I think Richard's birth reg. is just a mistake with her surname as the other children have her named as CURNOW (or variations).

1888   C4005
Richard Raw RICHARDS
Father: Richard Raw RICHARDS
Mothr: Mary Sarah HARRIS
