Completed as of April 15, 2021:
- Recruiting direct male-line descendants of Robert Barker for SNP testing - anyone interested in submitting their DNA for testing should contact Raymond T. Wing (email: wing.genealogist AT gmail DOT com)
Still to do as of April 15, 2021
- NGS/WGS test multiple descendants of Robert Barker (and preferably of his son Robert [II]) to place the family clade as well as test descendants to discover any subclades unique to descendants lines

Robert married bef Dec 1681 Alice Snow and they had eight children (born Duxbury): Abigail (1682), James (1683/4), Caleb (1685), Deborah (1686), Luceanna (1689), Robert (1693 m Lydia Booth, likely no ch.), Alice (1695) and Lydia (1697).

DNA results I-M223
Previous Y-DNA testing
The Barker DNA Project does not name the Ancestor, but using the internet archives wayback machine Warren family DNA Patriarchs the Barker DNA Project I Group 3 descends from John Barker, uncle to Robert Barker (II) and his Y-37 STR result was predicted to fall under I-M223.
Further needed testing
We need additional direct male-line descendants of Robert Barker (and preferably of his son Robert [II]) to WGS/NGS test to discover the haplogroup/clade for the family.
