Family of Henry Oliver BARKLEY and Melissa J COLLAR

Married1523 1873 Apr 251523 at Ada, Kent Co., MI1523.

Henry and Melissa were married by Edwin Booth, minister. Witnesses: S W Collar and A Judson Collar, both of Ada, Mich. It is assumed from the following information that Henry Oliver Barkley listed for this marriage is the son of Wellington Barkley: "Minnie" Barkley's birth record lists her birthdate as Apr 1875 and her parents as Henry Barkley and Melissa Collar; the 1900 census lists Winnie Barkley's birthdate as Apr 1875; the marriage record for Winnie Barkley to Grover Myers lists her parents as Henry Barkley and Melissa Collar; Winnie Myers' death certificate lists her parents as Henry Barkley and Melissa Collar; Winnie's son Maurice/Morris Myers is, in various records, listed as the grandson of Jacob and Addie Myers (Grover's parents) and the nephew of Louis Barkley, Winnie's brother. It should be noted, however, the John Barkley of Michigan, a descendant of Henry Oliver Barkley, has that the Henry Barkley that married Melissa Collar was NOT the son of Wellington Barkley.
