Barker learned the shipbuilding trade from his father and established his own business at Castine, Maine. In about 1816, he married Margaret Perkins, who was born and raised in Castine. They had eight children, including Marianne (Brooks) Upham, Phebe, Joseph Barker, and Noah, who later became a well known journalist and close friend of President Abraham Lincoln.
