Ann Blygh b. 1802 Tibenham, England, Encounter with Indians

Barker, George and Ann Blygh

Here is an account of my 3rd Great-grandmother, who was born on this day in 1802:

Alternatively “Blye,” “Blygh,” or “Blyghe,” she was born in England in 1802. She married Frederick Barker and came to New York on the “New Brunswick” seeking a better life; the ship suffered a smallpox breakout on the crossing. In New York she and her husband joined the Church and headed west. However, either she took exception to Frederick’s practice of plural marriage or to some other thing, because she divorced him and married his brother George.
