John T. ,jr and Esther Eleanor Henderson Barker

While I was in Paris, Idaho I was able to leave the courthouse with copies of three documents. Today I want to share the marriage certificate of John T. Barker,Jr and Esther E. Henderson, my great-grandparents.

The handwriting is a little faint, but that's the best copy she could make.  
The marriage certificate was applied for in Paris, Bear Lake, Idaho the 17th day of September 1902 and was recorded by James E. Hart.  The marriage ceremony was performed the 18th day of September 1902 by Bishop Ira Nebeker in Laketown, Rich, Utah and witnessed by Samuel Newton Henderson (father of the bride) and Allen Pugmire (cousin of the bride).

Among the photographs that I made copies of while I was in Idaho is this one of great-grandma and grandpa Barker on their 50th wedding anniversary.

Right now I am in the process of transcribing a ten page (legal size) history of the Barker family written by my great-aunt Adelia.  When I have that done I will post it.
