About Michael Barkdull


Born 3 Sep 1798, Turkeyfoot, Somerset, Pennsylvania to Joseph Barkdull and Maria Magdalena Freeman. Michael Barkdull was was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latterd-day Saints in 1834. In 1835 at a conference held at New Portage, Ohio, Michael presented a claim against an Elder Keeler for services rendered some eight to nine years previous and which was to have been awarded to Michael, but no testimony had been given to prove a payment or substantiate a claim. At that conference, it was resolved that they both had a bad spirit and deserved rebuke of the council. They were given one week to settle their differences with each other and make confession to the Church or lose their standing.

Apparently, Michael resolved the difference with Elder Keeler, because in March of 1836, Michael, age 36, received his anointing in the Kirtland Temple and his elder's license. He was given a patriarchal blessing on 23 Mar 1836 by Joseph Smith, Sr. On 29 Jan 1839, in Far West, he joined with others in attaching his name to a covenant to stand by and assist one another in removing from the state.

He died in Quincy, Adams, Illinois on 25 Jul 1839. He is shown in the 1842 Census as dead.
