The Barkers of Branford: Life In America Through A Local Lens


Based on the Diaries of Llewellyn Barker (1850-1937), The Barkers of Branford tells the story of a man’s life journey through the lense of his diaries starting as a young man in 1850, his jobs, education, marriage, and family life until his death in 1937. Much can be gleaned about life in Branford for over eight decades but also more globally, his thoughts and perspective on world events. Having a wife Della and four daughters, there is much to discover about the women’s lives, also.
