Biographical notes: Daughter of Joseph Starbuck (ship owner, merchant and builder of The Three Bricks) and and Sally Gardner Starbuck. She married Nathaniel Barney on May 18, 1820. Eliza continued to work on a genealogical record of more than 40, 000 Nantucket families over two and a half centuries. She was deeply involved in both the women’s suffrage and antislavery movements. Frederick Douglas was among the many prominent guests at 73 Main Street, the Barney’s home.
