Carl enlisted in the Army on April 3, 1943 in Newark, having traveled to Newark with his cousin and some buddies. He was honorably discharged from the Army, Battery B, 870 FA BN, having served as a Turret Lathe Operator, a Machine Gunner, and Carb Exp. He reached the rank of Corporal. After the Army, Carl returned home to Trenton. He met Virginia at Shirley Updike’s house on February 19, 1946. He was engaged August, 1, 1946 (Virginia’s 18th birthday) and married at St. Mary’s Cathedral Rectory by William Campbell, Asst. Pastor. The witnesses were William Heffelfinger and Joan Crawford

Carl Freeman Barclay – Carl “Doc” Freeman Barclay, 84, decided to go home on Thursday (February 7, 2008) from St. Francis Medical Center to be with his beloved wife Virginia and son Carl “Barkie” Barclay. Born in Trenton, he was a lifelong resident. Carl was from a family of working people of the great city of Trenton, who helped to make it what it once was. After a short stay in Ohio in his later years, Carl returned to the Trenton area to where his family first came in the 1680s. He worked on the railroad for 36 years in Trenton and in Morrisville, PA inspecting the rail cars for the Pennsylvania Railroad, the Penn Central Railroad, Con Rail and New Jersey Transit. He witnessed the transformation of trains from large, impressive diesel trains to the sleek, fast moving and quiet electric trains. If he had a vote, he would have chosen the diesels. Carl remained in touch with many of his “railroad buddies” who were responsible for calling him “Doc”, and with whom he liked to reminisce about the good old days when things were done by hand, personally. Carl was also a veteran of World War II, having served his country in the U.S. Army from 1943 until the end of the war. Carl enjoyed bowling, golf and watching sports on the television. Most certainly, however, he enjoyed his family, who miss him very much, but who are content that he is once again with those who have preceded him. He was the son of the late Carlton Freeman and Jessie Elizabeth Dennis Barclay, husband of the late Virginia Marie Crawford Barclay, father of the late Carl S. (Barkie) Barclay, and grandfather of the late Karyn Barclay. He is survived by his guardian angel and daughter, Geraldine Barclay of Ewing; his daughters Alice Barclay of Hamilton and Dolores Henry of Erlanger, KY; son Thomas E.C. Barclay of Ewing; and his nine grandchildren, Barbara Ann Yaede, Kelly Ann Yaede, Megan German, Ryan Barclay, constant friend and grandson Mark Potent, Brian Barclay, Rachael Barclay, Laura Barclay and Daniel Barclay, mostly of this area. He adored babies and thoroughly enjoyed his four great-grandchildren, Brianna, Kevin, Dylan and Erin. Funeral services will be held 10 am Tuesday at the M. William Murphy Funeral Home, 1863 Hamilton Ave. in Hamilton Township. Burial will be in Greenwood Cemetery where he will join Virginia and Barkie.

Samuel joined the Salvation Army on 3/2/1893. He was a potter all of his life. The 1880 census indicates that he cannot read or write. According to the Death Certificate, Samuel died of heart failure. He had chronic issues with Kidney Stones. (Sounds familiar?)

John enlisted 5/21/1861in response to the call to arms by Abraham Lincoln. He served for three years, and was discharged June 23, 1864. His invalid pension146.933 lets me know that John had a fair complexion, light hair, hazel eyes. and that he was 5′ 8.25″

John returned from the Civil War essentially unable to work. All four of his children were born just prior to John’s service to his country. After the war, he found it difficult to work at his carpentry work, and unable to support his family. Four years later, he died from the lingering impact of the shoulder wound and the effect of exposure to the elements during the Battle of Spotsylvania. John is buried in the Mercer Cemetery, together with his mother, Jane and a few infant children, including John and Catherine’s. There is no marker for John, which is a shame, considering that he served his country well and left his wife and children behind when he was just 39 years old. I wish I could rectify this.

Catherine A. Noble was born Jan 1837 in Trenton, Mercer, New Jersey, USA and died 15 Jun 1914 in Trenton, Mercer, New Jersey, USA. She married 29 Jul 1851 in Trenton, Mercer, New Jersey, USA. She was the daughter of John Noble and Hannah Beatty. They were married by Bailey West, the Justice of the Peace in Trenton.

After John died, Catherine made a living as a mid-wife, earning $10 – $15 per month. Her widow’s pension was $12 per month. She is poor. She signed with a mark. Catherine lived at 140 Second Street. She was apparently well-known in the community of South Trenton. She was a member of the Liberty Bell Temple #3 of O of UA, and Evening Star Lodge # 3 of the United Order of Shepherds. She did remarry to a Richard Kenney.

Children of John M. Barclay and Catherine A. Noble are:
Catherine J. Barclay was born 03 Jun 1852 in Trenton, Mercer, New Jersey, USA, and died 05 Jun 1903 in Trenton, Mercer, New Jersey, USA. She married William Ent bef 1880.
1. Samuel Miles Barclay was born 17 Jan 1855 in Trenton, Mercer, New Jersey, USA and died 12 Aug 1940 in Trenton, Mercer, New Jersey, USA.

2. John N. Barclay, born 28 Jun 1858 in Trenton, Mercer, New Jersey, USA.

3. William Barclay, born 27 Jun 1860 in Trenton, Mercer, New Jersey, USA.

John Ross Barclay was born on 13 May 1798 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. He died on 13 Sep 1891 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. John was born in Pennsylvania. It is always reported that way on census documents. On his death certificate, it states that he is born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. On the 1880 census, John is living with his daughter, Rebecca Mendham. On this form, he records that his parents were both born in England. This would likely mean that his parents would have arrived any time from 1798, when he was born to probably not earlier than 1750’s. Need to check immigration records and church records in that area around 2nd Street. I do not know of his religion.  His father was Samuel Barclay, born in Scotland and died in Philadelphia.
1820 John R. Barclay enumerated on 1820 Census, living in the Southwark section of the City of Philadelphia. In the same household there are 1 male between 15-25. There are three females, one younger than 10, one younger than 16 and one younger than 26. Thus, it is presumed that John and Jane have two daughters, or, at least one and a relative living with them. These older children do not show up on any future census.

1820 John shows up for the first time as a Cordwainer, living at Cox’s Alley. Cox’s Alley runs from 323 South 2nd to Front Street. A Samuel Barclay lives at 323 South 2nd. I think this is John’s father.

1823 John living at 18 Little Water Street, near South Street, working as shoemaker. He is 23 years old.

1825 John (Sr.) is living at 551 S. Second Street in Phila. and is working as a shoe maker. He lives there until at least 1841. (Philadelphia City Directory)

1830 John is living at 531 S 2nd and is working as a boot and shoemaker. There is a John Barkley listed on the 1830 Census, living in the “Pine Ward,” but no males listed match his age.

John is living at 4 Elmslies Alley

John is living at Beck Court, just to the south of South Street and closer to the river. He is working as a shoemaker.

John is living at Front and Christian Street and working as a Shoemaker

John is living at 262 S 6th Street and is working as a shoemaker. This is near Spruce and 6th, in Queen’s Village section

1839 John is living at Sutherland, n. Queen. Not certain as to where Sutherland was. It does not show on modern maps. Queen Street runs from 6th Street to the river.

1841 John is living on Federal, below M Road. Federal Street runs from Gray’s Ferry Road to the River. John’s son, William J. is born in Trenton, New Jersey, according to the death certificate.

1842 John is listed as living on 5 East Second Street, in Trenton, New Jersey and is working as a shoemaker. Also listed in Philadelphia at Laws’ Court

1854 John is listed as living at 37 Warren Street, near Front Street in Trenton, NJ.

1859 John Sr. is living on Lamberton Street and John Jr. on Spring St. in Trenton

1860 Census, Andrew and William are living with John and Jane in Trenton.

1865 Jane Barclay dies in Philadelphia, likely at the home of her daughter, Rebecca.

1868 John is listed as a Constable, Samuel M. as a Bow maker both at 95 S. Warren. There is also a Mrs. Barclay (widow) living at 29 Allen.

1869 Andrew J. Barclay, bow bender, is living on Washington St.(Lafayette). Samuel is a bow maker, John (M) a carpenter, and John a constable are all living at 95 S Warren (Warren and Market). John M is married, Samuel M is married and both had children. Must have been a crowded house!

1869 24 September, John M. Barclay dies of complications from war injuries. He is buried in Trenton, near to Jane.

1870 John R. SR is living in Trenton with Samuel, though Samuel M. is listed as John.

1870 Catherine Barclay (widow) is living with Catherine G. and Samuel at Calhoun, N of Quarry.

After this point, only Samuel Miles Barclay (John M’s son) shows up in the directories, on 5 Margerum’s Row (Broad), 19 Dillon’s Alley, 468 Centre, 99 New Rose Street all in Trenton

1880 Census – John R. Barclay (Sr.) is living with daughter, Rebecca and her husband, William Mendham at 513 Brooklyn Street, Philadelphia. On this same census, John is listed as having been born in Pennsylvania, but both his mother and father are listed as having been born in England.

1889 Samuel M. Barclay potter, is living at 348 St. Joseph av. in Millham, Trenton. Living with him is John R., plumber,(his nephew). I happen to know that John’s wife and children are born here.

1890 John R. Barclay, shoemaker living at 4243 Lancaster Ave. in Philadelphia, with his son, Samuel

1891 13 September, John dies of old age. He was still living at 4243 Lancaster Avenue.

What made John and Jane move from Philadelphia to Trenton during the time period after 1841, when William was born, and 1850, when they appear on the 1850 Census? One possible reason is that in the early 1840’s, there were riots in Philadelphia, Catholic vs. Protestant. In 1837, there was a typhus epidemic in Philadelphia. Why move to Trenton at all? The family, minus Samuel moved back to Philadelphia after much death in the family. They remained in Philadelphia, though I cannot identify any current Philadelphia Barclays.

Jane Myers (Miles), born 16 Sep 1797 in Lewes, Sussex, Delaware, USA. She died 05 Aug 1865 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. She was the daughter of John Myers (Miles) and Elizabeth. Jane died in Philadelphia, most likely while visiting her daughter, Rebecca. She is buried in Mercer Cemetery. Death certificate confirms birth in Lewiston, Delaware.
Children of John Ross Barclay and Jane Myers (Miles) are:

1. Andrew Jackson Barclay was born Feb 1827 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. He died 27 Jun 1897 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. He is living in Trenton for the 1870 Census. In 1880, he is living at 1261 N. 52nd with Martha A. 39 (New Jersey) (ENG) (Delaware), John K. Barclay 17 (New Jersey) (New Jersey) (Pennsylvania), Florence R. Barclay 15 (New Jersey) (New Jersey) (Pennsylvania) Andrew was a storekeeper here. He no doubt did very nicely there. My sense is that the people who lived in west Philadelphia worked and shopped in that area. In the 1890 Directory, he is at 1313 N. 52nd as grocer.

2. John M. Barclay was born 1830 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. He died 24 Sep 1869 in Trenton, Mercer, New Jersey, USA. He married Catherine A. Noble 29 Jul 1851 in Trenton, Mercer, New Jersey, USA.

She also dies in Trenton and Samuel marries Sarah G 1871. On the 1880 Census, Samuel is listed as living in Philadelphia on Lismore Avenue. This street is in a very industrial section of West Philadelphia, not very far from the UP, and close to Woodlands Cemetery. He is not, however, buried in Woodlands. 1223 N. 52nd. He is living with: Sarah G. 45, Annie E. Johnson, Step Daughter 23, Edward Johnson, Son-in-Law 32, John R. Barclay Son 23, Louisa M. Barclay Daughter 15, and a boarder. Edward is suffering from paralysis. In 1900, Samuel is still living with Edward Johnson (Printer), this time not as head of house. Also lining there is Edward’s family. Samuel and his wife, Sarah are living there, they have been married 29 years. Samuel is listed as a machinist, and Sarah is a music teacher. In a visit to the area around which the family moved back to in Philadelphia (N 52nd St) on 6/28/95, I found true urban squalor. There was no Church or Marker at the corner of 53rd and Wayulusing (Blockley Baptist). Living in 1890 at 4243 Lancaster Avenue. Living in 1910 with Martha (Andrew’s wife) and Florence.

4. Rebecca G. Barclay was born 04 Jun 1837 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. She died 30 Jan 1923 in Dayton, Montgomery, Ohio.

Had 10 children, 4 living in 1910.
