Descendants of Zolmon Barker

 

        The Barker  Family History goes back to England's Edward Barker. 

        Edward Barker was born 1625 in Mirfield,Yorkshire,England to Thomas Barker and Alice Wilson. He was christened in January of the following year. Thomas and Alice Barker were the parents of Elizabeth, Thomas, Edward, Mary, William, Elizabeth, John and Isaac Barker. 
        
        Edward came to colonial America in the year 1640, settling in Boston, Suffolk Co., MA. 

        I have the Complete Edward Barker History entered into my Computer it compiles to 200 pages of pictures, notes, articles and family stories. With the help of other family members we have compiled this book. Have we not of come together this would never of been completed. 

        After all that is family. 

        Thanks to all for helping and continuing to assist in collecting this information.

        8.  Reuben 7 Barker (Zalmon6, Elihu5, Uzel4, Jonathan3, Edward2, Thomas1) was born 1817 in 
Mecklenburg, Tompkins (now Schuyler) County, New York, and died September 17, 1899 in Emporium PA (Cameron).  
He married Aner Knickerbocker, daughter of Larry Knickerbocker and Nancy.  She was born 1820 in New York  (?), and died June 10, 1899 in Emporium PA (Cameron).

Notes for Reuben Barker:
Posted on reply to my message on 11/04/2002
Reuben is quite an uncommon given name given this time period. I have a Reuben Barker in my database. No birth date, but according to siblings probably around 1812-1820? Reuben was born in Mecklenburg, Tompkins (now Schuyler) County, New York. Many from this area moved west into Naples area--what is now Livingston and/or Ontario County, NY.

Reuben's father was Zalmon Barker (1775-1860). Mother unknown. Grandparents were Elihu Barker (1744-1840) and Bethia Thomas (1751-1826). 

11/05/2002 I asked her for the records of her Reuben Barkers brothers and sisters to see the names : 
Response from Kathleen is as follows. 
Now I'm not positive that your Reuben Barker is my Reuben Barker. More checking is needed to prove, however their age and location make it probable. 
Also, your Reuben names his son "Ancel" which is the name of my Reuben's brother. Coincidence or relationship?
Here are my Reuben's siblings: Ansel b. 1813, m. Jane Quick (living in Hector, NY; 1850 census)
Samantha (Barker) Hill b. 1819 (living in Hector, NY; 1850 census)Caroline (Barker) Hill b. 1814 (living in Hector, NY; 1850 census)George b. unknownEliza b. unknownPhebe b. unknown Alma b. unknownZalmon Jr. b. 1803, m1. Olive Culver, m2. Uzella Mary Barker (cousin), d. 1888 in Hector, New York. 

After digging through several records I went to the LDS family web site and retrieved several files two of which have Reuben attached to a Zolman Barker as his Father. Birth dates and years have matched. Census records being found and family records have connected us to this family. (2002-11)

 Barker, Reuben  NY ONTARIO CO. NAPLES 287 1840   
 
Notes according to 
Jeffrey Coney : Old family Bible; Family information shows an entry made by Ella Coney in 1927 
showing Reuben Barker married to a Rachel Knickerbocker. In his brother's baby book it shows:Reuben married to a Hanna Knickerbocker, 
this was made by Grandmothers (Paternal) Geneva Evelyn Coney (Barker) and (Maternal) Grace Audry Hofer (Lupole) in 1951.

Deceased has resided at this place for eighteen years and most of the time an invalid and a great charge to his family. 
The funeral took place on Monday. Rev. Shriner officiating. 

 
INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM A WEB MESSAGE BARKER BOARD: 
Family legend says several BARKER brothers left ENG for NYC, NY Abt 1830. Brothers split up to different locations and the only one we know about is 
William H BARKER b Abt 1820. May have jumped ship. Family in England was educated, assoc with the sea and military.
Would like to locate the other brothers so we can find the ENG family of William H BARKER and the IRE family of his wife Elizabeth STEWART
Son Joshua P G BARKER b 15 Aug 1830 in NYC and we do not know his siblings, if any. Joshua's grandson was named Frank GROVER Barker.

Barker           Eva        C.      14 Feb 1889        62  
 
I have a feeling that Reuben Barker was named after Reuben McIntyre a prominent neighbor to the Elihu Barker (Zalmon's Father) 
his will and testament notes found on the Message Board; 
The following will of Reuben McIntyre was signed on Oct. 18, 1831, five days before he died on Oct. 23, 1831. 
He was 53 years, 6 months, 22 days old at the time of his death. Reuben reportedly was buried in the McIntyre Settlement Cemetery.

By 1813, Reuben had settled in the town of Hector, then in Seneca County, southeast of the village of Mecklenburg. Hector was part of the New Military Tract opened for settlement in the 1790s. This area would later be in Tompkins County and then Schuyler County. On July 5, 1813, 
he purchased 75 acres in Hector 67 from Cornelius Bruyn. This land was on the western side of Hector 67 and adjacent to land owned by Robert Dickens. 
Within seven years, if the order of names in the 1820 census for Hector indicates locational proximity, Reuben’s neighbors included: Jeremiah Ayers, Ashbel Trumans, Elihu Barker, Thomas W. Davis, Jehemiah Osborn, and Joshua Morgan.

Just south in Hector 77 McIntyre Settlement, a small community, had formed as early as 1805. 
There were a number of McIntyres living in this area in the early 1800s -- Zimri, Major, Ira, Thomas, two Williams. 
Their relationship to Reuben has not been determined by us as yet. William McIntyre, who was a witness to Andrew Stevenson’s will in 1816, 
may have been his father.

From his will, we know that Reuben had the following children from a first wife: Sabrina, Roxy, Rosetta, Melinda, Dewitt Clinton, and Genette. 
With Julia, his second wife, he had one child: Loiza. The name of the daughter married to William Crawford is not specified in these documents. 
Some have concluded that it was Loiza, the youngest child. However, information from researchers in Ohio indicates that Sabrina married 
William Crawford and married a Vanderhoef second. Roxy also married a Vanderhoef.

Reuben’s wife Julia, executor Jonathan Owen 2nd, and Gilbert Stevenson’s wife Elizabeth/Betsey were the children of Joshua Owen and Zippora Winters. 
Julia was born in 1793 in Orange County, N.Y. Her sister Betsey was born in 1786 in Orange County. Her brother Jonathan was born in 
1799 in Orange County, married Mehitable “Hetty” Cleveland, died in 1846, and was buried in the Harvey/Buck Hill Cemetery. Julia’s other siblings, 
who are not mentioned in the will documents, were: Lucy, Nathaniel Moore, and Sally.

Executor Gilbert Stevenson was born in 1776 in Charlotte/Washington County, NY, and was the son of Andrew Stevenson, ~1747-1816,

Mrs. Aner Barker aged 79 years, five months and three days died at the residence of her son George Barker, on fifth street, last Saturday, after an illness of several weeks. Mrs. Barker is survived by her husband, Reuben Barker, who is very feeble at his advanced age of 82 and will soon follow her to the other world. 

Lester Knickerbocker, a brother, arrived from Cross Fork in time for the funeral. William Knickerbocker, of this place, who is in very feeble health is also a brother. 

Deceased has resided in Emporium PA for twelve years and was always a kind, affectionate lady and has gone to meet her reward. The funeral services were held from the family residence on Monday, at 2:00 PM, Rev. Shriner officiating. 
I also remembered e-mailing a John Knickerbocker about a Charles Knickerbocker and William Knickerbocker and he said he was a second cousin or cousin of his grandfather.

Notes for Frank Barker:
1874 - Frank apparently moved to Cameron County with his father and brothers before leaving for California. Also I found that Knickerbockers had moved to California - maybe they moved as a group. The years of the name Knickerbocker appearing in California would make it possible for this to happen.

Notes for Charles Ancel Barker:
1863 to 1865 Civil War, age 21

Charles was in the 148th out of New York. There is not much information out there on the 148th, but I did get some help from a Civil War Novelist (John Imhof). He found that the 148th was in the Eighteen Corps and suffered high causalities at the Battle of Cold Harbor and at Petersburg VA. They suffered 267 deaths during their service. 
According to John Imhof, "It is unfortunate but true that the amount of writing about an individual unit depended largely on who survived. If some of the better educated members survived you often got a good regimental history."

Notes for George W. Barker,  Sr.:

1864 to 1865 Civil War, age 18

George was in the 148th out of New York. There is not much information out there on the 148th, but I did get some help from a Civil War Novelist (John Imhof). He found that the 148th was in the Eighteen Corps and suffered high causalities at the Battle of Cold Harbor and at Petersburg VA. They suffered 267 deaths during their service. 
According to John Imhof, "It is unfortunate but true that the amount of writing about an individual unit depended largely on who survived. If some of the better educated members survived you often got a good regimental history."

SHOOTING AFFAIR. 

We learn that there was a shooting affray at the American Hotel Monday evening.  There are so many rumors and stories in relation to the matter that it is hard to get the facts.   As near as we can learn, Merrick Barker and two or three young men had some disturbance             with M. Jacob Link, proprietor of the American Hotel, and drove them out of the house with  a chair. When the lads got outside they broke out some windows and link went out and fired    five shots at them from a pistol. Young Barker was hit in the right hand and hip.   We learn at the time of going to press that the boy’s father will have Mr. Link arrested  and then the facts can be ascertained.

The American Hotel, ( Im told by some old timers) is now the Moose club located on east Allegheny Avenue in Emporium. I had My brother ( Chief of Police) Al see if he could find any documentation of this "Trial" In the promontory’s office. He’s in pretty tight with the Court House Gang. All that was found was Magistrate Larabee’s arraignment notations, a Bench warrant for J. Link. ( apparently he got his dates mixed up failed to appear) and the closure. 

Merrick’s father George did press charges, but when heads cooled and time passed the matter would eventually be dropped, or "null prosed" to use legal terms. This would suggest that Merrick and friends may have instigated the incident.

The trial of Ora O'Dell is over.

June 2, 1908 - A strong board is secured between the Court House and the Jail. A noose dangles from the board. A dark curtain encircles the "safe and convenient place" of execution. Onlookers jockey for vantage points on the hill above the scene, trying to get a glimpse of Ora O'Dell's day of reckoning. 

At 8:10 A.M., the last human being to be legally executed in Cameron County meets his maker.

CORA E. BARKER DIES: LONG TIME TEACHER 
Miss Cora E. Barker died early last Thursday morning in the  Maple View Rest Home, Coudersport, where she had been a guest for the past two years, and another chapter in the history of Cameron County has been closed. 

Miss Barker had taught in local schools for approximately 50 years when she retired in 1947. She began teaching before the turn of the century and she received permanent certification as a teacher on June 2, 1900, with certificate no. 6. 

She was born September 25, 1876 in Shippen Township, the daughter of late George and Martha Housler Barker, pioneer Cameron County residents. She was educated in local schools, and began teaching while in her teens. 

Miss Barker had taught in the Plank Road Hollow School, the East Ward School, several other Township Schools and at the time of her retirement she was principal of the old West Ward School on West Sixth Street. She taught principally in the fifth, sixth, seventh and  eighth grades. She taught three generations of many Emporium families. 

Her former pupils will remember fondly her love of the English language, with an emphasis on poetry. They will, too, remember perhaps not so fondly her teaching on the diagramming of a sentence, although it was of great value in later educational studies. They, too, will remember her discipline which was melted out with a stern mien, but awfully tender heart. They, too, will remember her love of community and everything that was fine and beautiful. 

Miss Barker was a member of the First Methodist Church, and the local branch of the PSEA. 

She is survived locally by two nieces, Mrs. Roy (Mildred) Gates and Mrs. Thomas (Clairce) Choick and two nephews living in other areas also survive. 

Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at the Coppersmith Funeral Home with the Rev. Samuel D. Regester, pastor of the United Presbyterian Church, officiating. Burial followed in Newton Cemetery.

OBITUARY
MARTHA, aged eight months, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Barker, died at the family residence on Sixth Street last Saturday, of pneumonia. The funeral took place Sunday, at 4PM. The parents have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement. 

DIED BARKER - In Emporium, PA., Jull 28th, 1894, MARTHA, aged seven months and two weeks daughter of GEORGE and MARTHA BARKER. 

The cradle is empty now, but the little head that was pillowed there is at rest; it will never ache again, and the tossing arms lie still. "It is well with thee child," because it is with Christ. 
                The form that was our household pride, 
                        Lies in the clay; 
                As meadow stream lets softly glide, 
                        She passed in beauty fron our side, 
                To Heaven away.

SHOOTING AFFAIR. 
We learn that there was a shooting affray at the American Hotel Monday evening.  There are so many rumors and stories in relation to the matter that it is hard to get the facts.              
As near as we can learn, Merrick Barker and two or three young men had some disturbance with M. Jacob Link, proprietor of the American Hotel, and drove them out of the house with a chair. When the lads got outside they broke out some windows and link went out and fired five shots at them from a pistol. Young Barker was hit in the right hand and hip.                                
We learn at the time of going to press that the boy’s father will have Mr. Link arrested and then the facts can be ascertained.

The American Hotel, ( I am told by some old timers) is now the Moose club located on east Allegheny Avenue in Emporium. I had My brother ( Chief of Police) Al see if he could find any documentation of this "Trial" In the Prothonotary’s office. He’s in pretty tight with the Court House Gang. All that was found was Magistrate Larabee’s arraignment notations, a Bench warrant for J. Link. ( apparently he got his dates mixed up failed to appear) and the closure. 
Merrick’s father George did press charges, but when heads cooled and time passed the matter would eventually be dropped, or "null prossed" to use legal terms. This would suggest that Merrick and friends may have instigated the incident.

MERRICK C. BARKER WAS POPULAR CITIZEN 
In the passing of Merrick C. Barker early Saturday morning Cameron County lost one of its most popular citizens. Merrick, who had been custodian at the courthouse for the past quarter of a century, died suddenly at 6:30 o'clock in his home from a heart seizure. He had worked as usual Friday but had admitted that he wasn't up to his usual good health. 
Mr. Barker was born in Cameron County, the son of George and Martha Barker, pioneer residents of the area. 
Had he lived until June 8th he would of been 81 years of age. 
With Merrick's death a half of century of public service by a father and son combination is ended. He assumed the courthouse position 26 years ago at the death of his father who had held the same post for thirty years. He had endeared himself to every worker in the courthouse through many acts of thoughtfulness and in the efficient manner in which he took care of his job. 
Prior to assuming the courthouse position Mr. Barker had been a powder worker and timber jack.
He was also popular with the public and his neighbors. He numbered his friends in the hundreds and the profusion of floral tributes testified to the esteem in which he was held in the community. Children will miss him as will an entire community. 
He is survived by his wife, the former Nora Housler; by five children: Ronald, Neil, and Mrs. Thomas (Clarice) Cohick, of Emporium; Merion of Kenvil, New Jersey and Mrs. Harlan (Beatrice) Floyd, New Castle PA. Two sisters, Cora Barker and Mrs. Lena Benson of Emporium, one brother, Edgar Barker of Painsville, Ohio and several grandchildren also survive.

SLEPT NINETY-EIGHT HOURS 
Paul Barker, son of Ed G. Barker, was called to LeRoy, N.Y., Monday on account of the illness of his mother, who went to sleep on Friday, September 9th and wakened about 4 o'clock Tuesday morning, about 98 hours. It is not what is known as the sleeping sickness, but it is caused by over-straining the nerves. 
Mr. and Mrs. Barker were in town September 5th and the long journey in an automobile was too much for her nerves, not being any too strong. She was taken sick on the trip back to LeRoy and was under the care of her doctor when she went to sleep. 
When she lived in New Castle she slept for four days and five hours, and also here in Emporium, at the home of her mother, she slept for 28 hours. She had two sleeping spells in New Castle caused by four serious operations at one time.
