Searching for information on behalf of a descendant of WILLIAM BARKUS and his wife Elizabeth, known to have lived in Muskingum Co Ohio about 1820 when their daughter Francis was born (c.1813). Info comes from Francis' obituary. Would probably make William's birth sometime around the 1780s. Daughter Francis married Joseph Hopkins c.1838 or earlier in Wabash Co IN.The only Barkus (or variant spelling) I find in Muskingum Co in 1830 is a John Barcus; no William. Possible William could have moved from the county by then, but where. Or died, but find no burial record. There might be other children of William & Elizabeth Barkus, but only one I know of is Francis. Information, clues on this family would be appreciated.
