To those of you who are looking for information on NOAH BARKER, husband of ANN HARPER, was Noah a son of Preston Barker and Martha Elizabeth Johnson (1854-1931)?
My great-grandfather, Millard Barker, was born in 1898 (Carter County) and died in 1955 (Carter County) after being struck by a car. He married Nora Mauk (1902-1993). He had a brother named Noah, and they signed up for the WWI draft registration together. Both of their draft cards are available to print off on ancestry. If this is is the same Noah, then he would be my great-great uncle. If this is him, I would be glad to do more research on him on someone's behalf.
To the original poster who was seeking information on Preston Barker, I know he was the son of William Barker (born 1822, Tennessee) and Minnie Holbrook. I cannot find Preston after the 1900 Census and in 1910, Martha and the children are living without him. He either divorced (rare) and I can't find him in the censuses, or he simply died in that time period. Preston married Martha E Johnson, daughter of Martin Johnson (born abt 1830) and Martha "Patsy" Kozee/Kazee. I have the death certificate for Martha. She died on June 17, 1931.
