Family of Hugh (m34) BARKLEY and Jane THOMPSON
Hugh (m34) BARKLEY b. 1768 Mar~840. d. 1809 Dec 29840 at probably Montgomery, Orange Co., New York1150. bd. Hopewell Church Cem., Pine Bush, NY840.
Jane THOMPSON b. 1770 (guess).
Married660 1793 Dec 3660 at Goodwill Presbyterian Ch., Orange Co., NY660.
Hugh was bequeathed1149 $25 by his brother James W, in James' will signed 2 May 1799. In Hugh Barkley's own will1150, he bequeathed to his wife Jane $325 in lieu of dower; to son William T Barkley his real and personal estate when he came of age; and the lot land on which they lived; to daughters Maria, Isable[sic] and Jane his other lot land near Hopewell Church to be sold by his executors and each to receive $500; to daughter Hariet[sic] $500. He appointed his wife executrix and "brothers" Joseph Barkley and Robert A Thomson executors; all to be guardians of his aforementioned children. That Robert A Thompson may be his wife's father, or possibly his brother-in-law. Hugh signed his will 6 Nov 1809, and it was witnessed by William Barkley, Nathaniel Barkley and Mary Barkley. The will was probated 17 April 1810 and sealed 20 April 1810. In 18501231 and 18600, William, Jane and Harriet Barkley (all of whom Moffat lists as unmarried), are listed in a single household.
Hugh's son Alexander is not mentioned in Hugh's 1809 will as Alexander died in 1806.
Hugh's birthdate is calculated840 from his age at death: 41y 9m & 2? D.
Child 1. William (m112)
Moffat655 says Wililam Thompson Barkley, sister Jane and sister Harriet all died unmarried. William T, Jane and Harriet Barkley were living in the same household in Crawford in 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1875. In 1880, just William Barkley, head of household, was living in Crawford, with sister Jane in residence.
Findagrave840 has his birthdate (which is difficult to determine from image of the headstone) as Jan 18, 1795. His deathdate is, however, clear in the image.
Child 4. Alexander
findagrave840 lists an Alexander Barkley, d Feb 20, 1806, aged 7m 18d, son of Hugh & Jane. The location, date and parentage matches well with Hugh Barkley and Jane Thompson. No other direct documentation at this time.
Child 5. Harriet (m116)
Harriet was living with brother William T and sister Jane Barkley in 1850, 1860 and 1870. She can't be found after 1870. A headstone840 for "Harriet Barkley" in Hopewell Church Cem., Pine Bush, NY, is broken, but appears to indicate a birth year of 1807, and clearly has "Died June --- 1879." That information fits well with Harriet Barkley, daughter of Hugh Barkley.
Child 6. Jane (m115)
Of Jane, Moffat says she died unmarried. She lived with her brother William from 1850 through 1880.
