Family of William H BARKLEY and Elizabeth J SMITH
Married1523 1861 Apr 251523 at Kent Co., MI1523.
It seems likely that the William Barkley listed in Michigan Marriages1953 was the son of Josiah and Fanny (Haines) Barkley: the marriage record for William Barkley and Hattie Teesdale indicates his parents (Josiah and Fanny), his birthyear as ~1832, and that it was his second marriage; census records for William and Elizabeth indicate his birthyear as ~1832 and he and Elizabeth named a daughter Fanny.
Elizabeth J SMITH b. 1842 Dec 6840 at Canada1271. d. 1888 Mar 25840. bd. Rockford Cem., Rockford, MI840.
William H Barkley is listed in Michigan Marriages1523, age 58, marrying (his second) to Hattie (nee Teesdale) Bittenbender (her second) on Jul 22, 1890. His parents are listed as Josiah Barkley and Fannie Haines. That record lists his birthplace as Oakland Co., MI. In 1870 and 1880, William, wife Elizabeth and family lived in Kent Co., MI. Following Libbie's death, he married second Hattie Bittenbender (nee Teesdale). In 1900, William, a widower, was living with sons Buron and Roy in Kansas. He was a farmer by trade.
