My great-grandfather, Thomas William Barker, was born in Shefield England and came to America 1876 on the S.S. Indiana. It docked in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He took up residence in Pittsburgh. He was a farmer. He married Annie Elizabeth Spencer in 1883. Annie was a widow and already had 6 children, but her and Tom had 3 more children, giving a total of 9 children. My grandmother, Edith was the youngest of the 9. She came to San Diego with her 3 daughters in 1924 to escape the scandal of having an unfaithful husband. The daughters were Dee (my mother), Wilberta and Beatrice. After the death of Annie, Thomas came to San Diego in 1920 to be with some of his children.He died in 1932.
