    (A212) NEWKIRK - We do not have the marriage record you are seeking, but we may be able to help. My wife, Mary NEWKIRK Alford, and I operate a computer based national information eschange on  NEWKIRK genealogical information (also for ALFORD and CHAPMAN).  There is no charge for routine exchanges.  We also publish a quarterly NEWKIRK newsletter with free inquiries.  We need to make sure that we are talking about the right Elizabeth.  We have at least 85 Elizabeth NEWKIRKs in our files, but only one born in 1747.  She was the dau. of Adrian (maybe also called Arie) & Marretjen Rutsen.  Elizabeth was bp. in Kingston, Ulster Co., N.Y., 13 Dec. 1747.  She is listed on p. 33 of the 1934 NEWKIRK book pub. by the Gen.

    (A265) BARKER - Francis BARKER, living at Concord, Mass., 1643, was named beneficiary in the will of his partner, Thomas BAGNLEY, who d. there 18 March 1643.  In 1655, the General Court granted the petition of Major Willard and others of Concord to sell the house and lands of Francis BARKER, lately deceased, for the best advantage of his children.  The deed for the sale of this property, dated 20 Nov. 1655, named John BARKER as the “sonne” of Francis BARKER.

    In his will signed 14 March 1710/1 and probated 21 April 1718, John BARKER, Sr., of Concord, "aged about sixty four years," mentions wife Elizabeth; eldest son John, Jr., and his son John; son Joseph; youngest son William and another son William who died some years earlier; eldest dau.

    (A267) BARKER - The BARKER genealogy by Elizabeth Frye BARKER (1927) identifies a William BARKER, b. 4 June 1739 as the son of John4 BARKER (John3-2-1) & Hannah BREWSTER (Jonathan4, Wrestling3, Love2, Elder William1).  In addition, the Mayflower Ancestral Index, Vol. I, (Gen. Soc. of Mayflower Desc., 1981) lists a line from William BARKER & Chloe BRONSON through John4 BARKER & Hannah BREWSTER.  William BARKER was prob. not b. in Amenia as the family had not yet come to this area in 1739.  More than likely lie was b. in Conn., either in Lebanon, where his parents m. (6 Nov. 1728) or in Norwich, where John4 Barker died. (More info. available)

    (A275) HUMPHREYS/FALES - See "The Fales Family of Charlemont, Mass.," by Mertons S. Fales, in the Fales Family Bulletin. November 1983.  The article covers the descendants of the first three generations of the FALES family in America, male lines only, and mentions on page 9 Sarah4 FALES who m. John HUMPHREY.  The article does not mention the dau. Lucy, but you might ask Allen Fales if he has anything further.

    (A277) CARR - My husband’s forebears had a Freelove CARR among them.  Upon looking her up I realized she was exactly a generation younger, having been born in East Greenwich, RI., 19 June 1797, and m. 17 Sept. 1818 Levi PHILLIPS, Jr.  She was one of ten ch. of Sayles CARR, Jr., & Mary HATCH. It seems reasonable that your Freelove might be a sister to Sayles CARR. Jr..
