Family of Franklin BARKLEY and Mary Ann GOBLE
Franklin BARKLEY b. 1821 Dec 22654 at Yates Co., New York38. d. 1896 Jan~1063 at prob Bradford, NY34. bd. Bradford Cem., Bradford, NY34.
Mary Ann GOBLE b. 1827~656 at NY656. d. 1859 Feb~.
Franklin's marriage to Mary Ann Goble is assumed to be about 1846, from son James' age. Franklin's marriage to Mercy Butler Weaver is assumed to be about 1857, assuming that Abram is the son of Franklin and Mercy and not the son of Franklin and Mary Ann. Franklin is mentioned as a son-in-law and an heir to Mary Ann's father, Timothy Goble, in Timothy's will1064 in 1849. In the 1865 census, both Franklin and Mercy are listed as being married previously. Franklin is listed as the father of 8 children; Mercy as the mother of 7. That implies that Mercy's children are (by Peter Weaver) Emily, Mary Helen and Henrietta Weaver; and (by Franklin Barkley) Abram, Jesse, George and Albert Barkley.
Franklin's death date is from a notation1063 "Barkley, Frank died - funeral Sun last - S. Bradford, Jan 17, 1896 Courier." Simular information appears in the Hammondsport Herald, Wed, Jan 15, 1896: "Quite a number from this place [South Bradford] attended the funeral of Franklin Barkley, at Bradford, on Sunday last." It's assumed his funeral occurred shortly after his death.
Mary Ann Barkley, nee Goble, is listed as the daughter of and heir to Timothy Goble in Timothy's will1064, signed Feb 3, 1849.
Franklin Barkley, of Bradford, Steuben Co., petitioned the Surrogate Court, Bath, New York, 25 Feb 1859 [New York Wills/Probate Recs., Steuben Co., Minutes/Orders/etc., p 474, www.ancestry.com] to be appointed guardian for "minors under the age of fourteen years," viz. James T. Barkley, Lucretia Jane Barkley, Alwilda Barkley and Clarence A Barkley. The petition was granted the same day. Mary Ann is assumed to have died shortly prior to that date. That date is consistent with the listing of Franklin's second wife, Mercy, in the 1860 census.

In 1920, James, "Uncle," is living with his nephew Stanley Barkley. He is also listed as married. In 1925, James is living with nephew Franklin in Bradford.
