142 Barkhurst Rees 50 M

George 8 M

172 Barkhurst William 54 Farmer

I would guess that Rebecca is William & Reese's mother, but no proof. No idea where Ruth is in 1870, unless she moved out to Iowa with Esau's brother.

Still no proven ties between Ruth and Reese. Ruth & esau's son Titus Harris married Melissa Rebecca Palmer. have you run across her?

I'll check further censuses for your Barkhursts.
