John Ambrose Barker was the son of John Barker and Lucy Talbot. He and his wife Peggy (stage name Peggy Wynne, birth name Agnes) were English vaudeville entertainers and had a successful career in England and the colonies, especially South Africa and Australia. They moved to California in the 1930s, where they were publicists for Paramount and Republic pictures, respectively, and had sporadic uncredited parts in movies in the 1930s and early 1940s. Peggy died in 1943. Ambrose died in 1965--an accident caused by his pajamas catching on fire. He was cremated by the LA Crematory and, since he apparently had lost touch with all family (many "unknowns" on the death certificate), his ashes are in a common grave. Ambrose and Peggy seem to have had a good life and it's a sad ending.
