Jim, has anyone in your group of Barkers done DNA testing? I have had a descendant of each of three of our male Barkers do testing - Allen, Joseph and Jeremiah - do testing. It would be interesting to see if your Barkers DNA matched our group. A man who is from the Surry County, Virginia Barkers did testing, also, and did not match our group. That goes for a Barker family from Hanover County, Virginia, too. So far our Henry County Barkers haven't matched any other Barker family.
