Genealogical and family history of the state of Maine, (1909). Cyrus I., seventh son of Jonathan Barker and his second wife. Catherine (Mitchell) Barker, was born at Bridgton, Maine, November 11, 1827. Being next to the youngest in a family of eleven children, he was early thrown upon his own resources. His elder brothers had left home as soon as they were able to work, and Cyrus I. thought it was his duty to follow their example. He had already been employed upon neighboring farms and in a quarry, but his tastes were mechanical, and he wished to go out into the world. His father gave him ten dollars, and Cyrus I. set forth to seek his fortune. He first went to Portland, but finding nothing there kept on to Boston. Being again unsuccesstul in obtaining employment suited to a boy of his years, he returned to Portland with only a few pennies in his pocket. While there he heard of a position at Brunswick, which he might get if he could reach the place. Having no money, he was obliged to ask the loan of a dollar from the man with whom he was staying. By this means he was enabled to pay his fare to Brunswick, where he obtained the situation and stayed some time. . . . continued > HERE <
