Clarence and Myrtle Barker's home on the northwest corner of 2550 N. 400 E. was the first house in North Ogden to install electricity. The Barkers held a town party after dark, magically flipped a switch to light up the house, and the townspeople were amazed! The home has been replaced by a Walgreen's store. ... See MoreSee Less

Larry, The first-born died in her first year, the second died at age two, two more girls died at about age two, and one lived until she was 16. Then his wife died, and he remarried a woman with two children. Together they had five daughters of which only two reached maturity. I can't find any causes of death... There are more people upstairs at the home, but they are unidentified.

Correction: Marlon Berrett is the father and Alfred is the son. Marlon is the father of fourteen children and Alfred had three daughters. Thank you for sharing, amazing picture! Alfred is my great grandfather.

Do you what year this picture was taken?

When was this house torn down

Is the home still standing?

Wish the house was still standing ... it would be amazing!

Any particular reason the other children did not reach maturity?

What a cool picture and house.

Are there others on the second level by the ballister? Almost looks like four to me.

Marlon is my great grandpa

Mine as well! He is my 4th Great Grandfather

Cool house! !
