C. E. Barker


Former Citizen died at home in Kansas

Word has been received by relatives and friends here that C. E. Barker a former resident of the Barker neighborhood east of Adair had died at his late home in Effingham, Kansas, and was buried there last Saturday.

Mr. Barker will be remembered by many of our older residents, as he grew to manhood here, he with his family moved to Kansas about thirty-eight years ago where they have since resided.

He was a brother to the late George Barker of the Barker neighborhood, near what is known as the Barker church and cemetery which was named for their father.

Mr. Barker was one of the first readers of The Beacon and has continued to be a faithful subscriber throughout the years of the life of the paper, which with his many other friends extend heartfelt sympathy to the family at this time.

[note: Charles Edward Barker born 4 April 1842, Illinois, died 21 Oct 1920, Effingham, Atchison, Kansas]
