Saw the page on Henry 7 Bigelow, and was reminded of my family tradition that three brothers Barker arrived in Nantucket in 1700's.  I have the name Richard and Wade Barker, and the guess that they left for Long Island, East Hampton where they were allied with Fithian and Mulford families.  I pick them up for sure in Cumberland Co, NJ.
