Evidence from emigration and church (Perpetual Emigrating Fund) records proves the Barker family traveled to Utah in the 1853 John Brown company. After traveling across the ocean on the Camillus, they reached the outfitting place only in time to travel to Utah with the last company--the John Brown company. He was born en route.
