Forenames:
George J.
Surname:
Barker

Lawyer who represented FH in two lawsuits in Lawrence, Kansas in the 1870s. FH claimed to have replaced him as partner in the law firm of "Barker & Sommerfield" after Barker died in 1875, of hiccoughs. There is barely a shred of truth in this story: no such firm existed; FH was never a partner in any law firm, although he was admitted to the bar in Lawrence in 1875; Barker did not die until 1912 - of diabetes!
