Family of Gaston (m93) BARKLEY and Caroline SEASE
n's surname is listed herein as "Barkley" to correspond with the listing in Moffat's "Barclays of New York." The surname for Gaston and most of his descendants appears variously as Barkley and Barclay. The spelling Barclay appears to be most prevalent.
The 1900 census891 lists Gaston as married 57 years, though Caroline had died the year before.
In 18501231, Gaston Barclay, age 31 and a farmer with real estate valued at $6000, has wife Caroline and (likely) son Samuel listed in his household. Elizabeth Barclay, age 70, who may be his aunt Betsey (father Daniel's sister), is also listed.
In 18601232, Gaston and Caroline are listed with children Alfred (age 16), Samuel (age 13), Charles H (age 10), Franklin (age 7) and David L? (age 3) in the household. It is assumed that these are their children. Also listed in the household is Henry Barkley, age 60, master carpenter.
Before 18801234, Gaston and sons Alfred A and Franklin Barclay moved to Brooklyn. All three are listed as living at 398 6th in 1880. In 18821234, Gaston, Alfred A and David S Barclay are living at the same address. Gaston is listed as a watchman in those directory entries.
On June 12, 1899, Caroline Barclay, died suddenly1236 at age 83. Funeral services were held at the residence of her son, Frank Barclay, 393? Fourth St.
In 1900, Gaston, age 81, is still in Brooklyn, now living with his daughter Harriet, her husband John G Hudson, and their two children Ethel and Alfred. Gaston is listed as married for 57 years.
In 1903, Gaston's death was listed1235 28 December 1903. The address listed, 391 4th St, Brooklyn, is the same address as listed for his daughter Harriet Hudson in the 1900 census891, the same address listed in his death notice1237.
Moffat has Gaston married to Caroline Lease. Caroline's obit, however, has Caroline SEASE. A look at various census records indicates that there were several Sease families in Orange County in the early 1800s. It is not uncommon for a script S to be mistaken for a script L.
Child 3. Charles
Charles' deathdate is assumed from the burial index4334 entry for Charles H Barclay in Green-wood Cem., Section 141, Lot 22985, which is common to his father, mother, several siblings and other relatives. His deathplace is assumed from his appearance in the 1875 census for Brooklyn, in which he appears in the household of his father. He is listed as a millinary salesman.
Child 5. David
David lived with his family through 1882. His occupations are listed variously as telephone operator, and clerk at a furniture store. A David Barclay is listed1234 in Brooklyn, 1899, a barkeeper, residing at 588 Baltic. A David S Barclay appears1519 in a list of deaths in the New York Times, d Oct 27, 1902, 588 Baltic St, Brooklyn, aged 41 years. In the 1900 census891 for Brooklyn, 588 Baltic Av is the residence of David Parker, wife Rose, and their children, but a David Barclay is not listed. His death date is assumed from that death notice and a burial index4334 entry in a section and lot common to his father, mother, siblings, and several relatives.
