Family of Henry Oliver BARKLEY and Nettie (Henrietta) WRIGHT

Henry Oliver BARKLEY b. 1849 Sep 252188 at Southfield, Oakland Co., MI1523. d. 1909 Feb 122188 at 743 Berton Ave, Grand Rapids, MI2579. bd. Freeport, MI2579.
Nettie (Henrietta) WRIGHT b. 1854~1523 at Jamestown, Mercer Co., PA1523. d. 1884 Nov 171520 at Bowne, MI1520.

Married1523 1878 Apr 41523 at Middleville, Barry Co., MI1523.

Henry and Nettie were married by Benjamin Moore, minister. Witnesses were Hammond Moore and Effie Baldwin.

His death certificate2579 lists his birth date as Sep 5, 1849.

Henry's middle initial is listed in the marriage record1523 for his marriage to Nettie Wright.. At the time of that marriage, he was resident in Cedar Springs, MI. His full name is listed in the birth record1455 for his daughter Florence Maude Barkley. Henry's death certificate2579 lists his parents' names, including his mother's maiden name. He died of cancer of the prostate and bladder. The informant was Florence Barkley. Henry was a farmer by trade.

That Nettie Wright, who married1523 in 1878, Henry O Barkley, at the age of 24, born Jamestown, Pennsylvania, is Henrietta Wright, who appears5303 in the household of Philo (born New York) and Nancy Wright in 1870, age 16, born Pennsylvania, is assumed from the similar birth years and places, and the death record1520 for Nettie Barkley which lists her father as Philo Wright, born New York.

Nettie died1520, married, of confinement, at the age of 31. Her father is listed as Philo Wright, born in New York.

Child 1. (unnamed)

This child is identified from a Mich birth record1455 for Barry Co. for the year ending Dec 31, 1878. As there appears to be no other records for this child, it may be that record and the birth record1455 for Louis Barkley, b March 25, 1879, (Barry Co., for the year ending Dec 31, 1879) are for the same child. As Henry and Nettie, listed as parents in both records, were married in Apr, 1878, it seems unlikely (though certainly not impossible) that Nettie would have borne a child one month after her marriage.

Child 3. Myrtle

The 1880 census lists an unnamed daughter of Henry and Henrietta, born Apr 1880. Mich Births1455 lists Myrtle's name, parents and birth information.
