      The celebration of the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the primitive organization of the Congregational Church and Society in Franklin, Connecticut, October 14, 1868. New Haven: Tuttle, Morehouse & Taylor, Printers, 1869.
      Dr. John Barker, whose residence was located in the eastern part of the West Farms Society, was the eldest son of John and Hannah (Brewster) Barker, and was born in Lebanon, Connecticut in 1729. The ordinary school advantages of that day he carefully improved. As a medical student in the office of Dr. Joseph Perkins, his close application, keen insight into the mysteries of disease, and particularly his quick and accurate interpretation of equivocal symptoms, gave certain promise of future success. Commencing business in 1750, he labored in the same field for more than forty years, till stricken down by sudden death. As a physician, Dr. Barker enjoyed an enviable popularity, both with the public and the profession. He was extensively employed in consultation throughout eastern Connecticut, and great deference was yielded to his opinions.
      He died June 13, 1791, of cholera morbus. On the 19th of September following, Dr. Philemon Tracy, by appointment, delivered a eulogy on his life and character, before the New London Co. Medical Society. [1]
