Barkalow Orphan Lines

Orphan lines, by assigned definition here, can be any lines with ancestral OR descendancy connection problems. They will invariably lack hard evidentiary documentation such as bibles, church or probate records.

Jan Willemse Barkaloo(c1664-p1687) of Gravesend, Kings Co.,NY.


NOTE- Jan Willemse BARKALOO, son of Willem Jans Lubberdick van Borculo(c1621-1683) and 1) Cornelia Van Salee(c1638-c1665) is an "Orphan Line" candidate because we can't be track his descendants. His ancestors we have.

1. Jan Willemse BARKLOO, is born, by best estimates of Mrs. John M. Spell, about 1664 in Gravesend, Kings Co.,NY, where his father, Willem Jans van Borculo resided.

3. In September,1687, Jan Van Barkelo took the Oath of Allegiance in Flatlands, as "Jan Willemsz borclo, native".

8. Jan BARKALOO is not found in Census of Gravesend, Brooklyn or NYC in 1705.


No one has successfully tracked Jan Willemsen Barkaloo beyond 1687. He doesn't appear as a witness to baptisms of known relatives, or in the 1705 Census of Brooklyn, Gravesend or NYC. If he died during this period, a probate document hasn't been found.
