  • Notes 
    • At a few minutes past two o'clock on Wednesday morning [21 Oct 1885] the pure spirit of EMORY BARKEY winged its way to the God who gave it. On the 4th of October, Emory returned home from Philadelphia, where he had been engaged in working at his trade as a plasterer, for several weeks previous, and being quite sick when he reached here it is thought he contracted the disease, typhoid fever, in the city, continuing to grow worse until death relieved him of his sufferings. The funeral occurred at 2 o'clock on Thursday afternoon. The solemn services were conducted by Rev. F. Adams, pastor of the Port Royal M. E. church, and the scene was extremely sad and heartrending. The son and brother dead, who bid so fair for long life, idolized by his parents, brothers and sisters, who was about to be bourne to the silent city, while the loving husband, the kind and indulgent father was momentarily expecting the summons to depart this life, being fully conscious of his approaching dissolution, for in response to the question whether he desired his wife to go to the funeral of their son or remain at his bedside, he said, "go, mother, but don't stay away long for I may not be here when you return.

      A Civil War veteran, he enlisted in Harrisburg March 7, 1865, mustered into federal service there March 8 as a private with the second organization of Co. C, 101st Pennsylvania Infantry, and honorably discharged with his company June 25, 1865.

      At the time of his enlistment, he was a plasterer living, according to the Pennsylvania Archives' ARIAS file, in Straban Township, Adams County, possible but questionable. He stood 5' 6" tall and had dark hair and gray eyes.
