Family of Josiah (m44) BARKLEY and Frances (Fanny) HAINES

A transcription of Oakland Co., MI, records1663 lists Jonah Barkley, born 1793 in New York, married in New York to spouse Margaret (born 1812 in NY), brother of Thomas Barkley, with children "James, Oliver, others," a farmer resident of Bloomfield. Those records also list Oliver Barkley, born 1849, with father "Jonah" and mother Margaret. From other information, it appears that the "Jonah" of the Oakland Co. records is a mistranscription of "Josiah."
Of Josiah, Moore2516 says he and Fanny, dau of John Haines, had "several children." Josiah, along with Daniel Wilkin, was appointed executor2539 to the estate of John B Haines, Fanny's father.
Durant2549 states Josiah emigrated October, 1825, from the state of New York, and purchased land on the southwest quarter of section 32, on the town line just east of the village of Franklin, where he (1877?) was "yet living in extreme old age."
Josiah signed his will5301 Aug 3, 1874, in Pontiac, Michigan. In his will, he states he was of Bloomfield, Oakland Co., MI, and age 81 yrs. His will mentions wife Margaret; sons Crawford, Byard, William H and Oliver; and daughters Mary E Vinton, Permelia Thorne, and Martha J Drake. The petition for probate mentions his death in Bloomfield, Oakland Co., MI, 12 Oct 1879. His will was proved Nov 17, 1879. Wife Margaret Barkley, executrix, presented the final account of his estate on Nov 5, 1880, and James A Jacobs, Judge of Probate, declared the estate settled.
Josiah died1520 in 1879 at the age of 87y 3 mos and 17 days. Durant also mentions that Josiah had two daughters, Mrs B A Thorne and Mrs Frank Drake, at that time living in Birmingham. Birmingham, MI, is just a few miles northeast of Franklin.
Moore2516 has Fanny as daughter of John Haines.
Child 7. Martha
Moffat655 has a daughter of Josiah and Fannie (Haines) Barkley as Mary (no. 171).
The death certificate2188 for Martha J Drake lists her parents as Josiah Barkley and Fannie Haines, both born Orange County, NY. Martha was the widow of Francis W Drake. The informant for Martha's death certificate was Harriet Drake of 151 Cortland St, the place of Martha's death.
Martha Jane Barkley and Francis W Drake were married2663 Oct 13, 1852, Southfield, MI, by Norman Tucker, minister of the gospel.
