I am searchinmg for the first names of the two or three Barkley sons who for reasons unknown left BARKLEY family in colonial NJ (Somerset County) I believe, and moved to PA in the eighteenth century.
These boys changed their name to BARTLEY from BARKLEY for reasons unknown. But they all signed various documents both ways at different times in their lives.
Exactly who they were the sons of, and what caused the riff between them and their family(ies)is unknown.
If this rings a bell with any present day BARTLEYs who have their genealogy back to the NJ colony, I would appreciate you sharing any such information, however wispy (i.e. anecdotal or oral) such may be.
