Birth: Jan. 22, 1879
Death: Oct. 26, 1950

Mr. Barker was born in Småland, Sweden, 22 January 1879 and died 26 October 1950 at the age of 71 years, 10 months and 5 days. At the age of three he came with his father to America. The family settled in Morris, Illinois. The only other members of the family was a sister, Hilma (Mrs. Hogan Egberg) who passed away in Seattle, Washington in 1947. His mother died in Sweden when he was but two years old.

On 26 July 1905 Mr. Barker and Miss Ellen Johnson were united in marriage. Three years later they moved to a farm in Sac County, Iowa where they remained one year. From here they moved to a farm in Hayes township Ida County where Mr. Barker resided until 1941, when they moved to a home in Arthur. Mrs. Barker died in November 1926.

To this union three children were born: Elva Barker and Milford Barker, both of Arthur and Gertrude (Mrs. Lowell Sederberg) of Port Orchard, Washington. These 3 beside three grandchildren, Dean and Jimmy Barker and Jean Marie Sederberg survive.

Mr. Barker was a member of the Baptist church since 1900. When he moved to Arthur he transferred his membership to the Arthur Baptist church where he has been a faithful attendant, and also served as trustee and deacon for a number of years. He was active in community affairs and a member of the town council. Since his retirement he has spent much time with friends and giving his services when help was needed.
