He was a member of the 11th Vermont volunteers during the civil war. He was a shoemaker by trade and continued in that work until about 15 years ago. He leaves a widow, a son, Barney Barker of Rutland; a daughter, Mrs. L.D. Kenney of Rutland; two brothers, John Barker of East Plainfield, N.H., and Frederick Barker of North Walpole, N.H., and two sisters, Mrs. Lucy Bugbee of Lebanon, N.H. and Mrs. Elizabeth Benton of Hanover, N.H.
