Am interested in the Lewis Barker who purchased land in Monroe Co. in 1837, 1848 & December of 1840. Is he the same Lewis Barker who earlier was in Pope Co. IL, was a state senator, and operated a ferry at Cave-in-Rock, IL?
Lewis Barker's daughter Jane married Isaac Perkins, a brother to my ancestor Daniel Reese Perkins. Am trying to determine where Lewis Barker died. My info is that his father was George Barker of Wilkes Co. NC, a Revolutionary War veteran.
Any info appreciated.
