Barkuloo Orphan Lines - 2

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

Garret Barcalow(1780-1861),Churchville, Bucks Co.,PA., probable desc. of Richmond Co.,NY Barkuloo Lines


1. CORNELIUS BARKULOO, infant, is baptised 13 Oct 1747 in Northfield DR Church, parents: Abraham Barkuloo and Catrina Ellis. Catrina may be the same bapt.30 Aug 1724, the d/o Bastien Ellis and Sarah Nevius.

4. ABRAHAM BARKULOO, is dead by 1 Jun 1767, based upon a Richmond Co.,NY court record. Catrina survives him.

5. GARRET BARKULOO, whose name never resurfaces in Richmond County, may be deceased by 1783, but not necessarily without heirs.
