John Michael Barkman/Bergman

The ancestor I'm researching is John Michael Bergman. I discovered the link between him through a book published by Barekman, June Beverly (who has published many books on the surname and variants). I believe the title is "Bergmann-Barrackman Family Germany to America".

Anyway, on page 8 of the intro it states information about him and that he was the "founder" of the Bedford County, Pennsylvania branch of the surname. This is the family I'm interested in.

Furthermore it states that "The story of the Bedford Barkmans and the story of the Fayette County, Pennsylvania Barrickmans will be published late in 1963 by June B. Barekman and Hank Jones."

I have not been able to find this publication. Anyone have an idea? I'm trying to link the Michael Barkman in Bedford County, PA from 1810-1830 to the John Michael Bergman of Germany.
