My name is Tim Barker. I am a descendent of John Henry Humphrey Barker and Christine Martena Benson through their youngest son Stephen Waldo Barker. In college I majored in history before changing to accounting, and while as a history major I wrote a term paper on John Henry Humphrey Barker for my Researching and Writing History class. Since then, my interest in further developing this initial project has expanded considerably. I intend to write a biography of John Henry Humphrey Barker at some point. This website is meant to serve as a repository for source information that will hopefully result in the biography. To anybody that actually cares enough to read this and peruse the site, I’m sure we share a common interest. If you have any desire in assisting in this project, especially by contributing source information, please contact me through the form below. Thank you.
