Family of Samuel (m3) BARKLEY and Agnes Nancy MCCURDY

Married655 1787 Feb 15655.

Agnes Nancy MCCURDY b. 1764~2856. d. 1844 Sep 262856. bd. Goodwill Cem., Montgomery, NY2856.

Moffat655 has the name of Samuel's second wife as "Nancy." It is maintained in this genealogy without further refernce. See Samuel's family with Catherine McClaughry for a description of his will. That will mentions his wife Agness Barkley as well as children mentioned also by Moffat. A series of documents2857 details the application of Agnes Barkley, wife of Samuel, for his Revolutionary War Pension. One of those documents sworn to by Justice of the Peace Henry Welsh, county of Orange (NY), details the deposition of the Pastor of the Presbeterian[sic] Church in Montgomery, Rev William Blain. The Reverend stated that he examined the records of the church and found the marriage of Samuel Barkley with Agnes McCardy; that the marriage took place on the fifteenth day of February 1787. Both the Reverend and the Justice of the Peace signed the document. Another document in that file details Samuel's revolutionary war service (apparently as related by Agnes herself), and signed by "Agnes (her X mark) Barkley. That description mentions that Agnes was (as of 1 Sept 1841) aged 77 years, giving an estimate of her birthyear which matches cemetery information2856. Below that description, intended to demonstrate her claim to a pension, and in the same document, is an affadavit by James S Barkley (their son), aged 51 years, that Samuel Barkley, the husband of the above applicant died in Orange County 17 Apr 1814, and that Agnes Barkley remained his widow "ever since." That was signed by James S Barkley, and certified 1 Sept 1841 by H W Elliott, Justice? Of Orange Com Plea. That leaves little doubt concerning the name of Samuel's second wife and their marriage date (as also reported by Moffat.) It also supports the birthdate of James S Barkley given by Moffat. Further, along with cemetery information2856, Agnes' approximate birth and death dates can be determined. That cemetery information lists an Agnes Barkley who died September 26, 1844, age 80, "wife of Samuel Barkley."
