Council of Heads of Australasian Herbaria
Possibly Susannah Barker nee Hodgkinson (1819 - 24 November 1899).
Born, in England, to Richard and Mrs Hodgkinson. In 1844, she married a pastoralist and public servant, John Barker (1815-1891), and went to Vic. They had three sons. The family owned 'Barrabang', 'Cape Schanck' and 'Boneo' runs.
Susannah possibly collected a MEL specimen (as 'Mrs Barker') at Cape Schanck, 1895. Susannah's mother-in-law, MARY ANNE BARKER, also collected MEL specimens.
Susannah died of pneumonia in 1899 at Cape Schanck in her 80th year.
