My immigrant Barker was Thomas. He was born September 1, 1806, at St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England. He married Elizabeth Thompson in 1825 and on 28 Jul 1869 they sailed from Liverpool on ship "Colorado" and arrived at New York Harbor on August 10. From there they went to Idaho. Who knows, maybe we hook up somewhere.
