INTRODUCTION. 



Nearly 20 years ago, while on a visit to the home of my an- 
cestors in Massachusetts, I became interested in genealogy. My 
first efforts were directed to the tracing of my line of descent 
from John White of Wenham, 1639, an extended genealogy of 
whose descendants has recently been completed by Miss Almira 
L. White of Haverhill, Mass. 

W^hile assisting in this work, I became deeply interested in 
the various families from which I am descended through both 
my parents, and found that in some lines, genealogies had al- 
ready been published. On my mother's side, I found two 
apparently unrelated Barber families. The American ancestor of 
one of these was Thomas Barber of Windsor, Conn., (born about 
1614), and the earliest American ancestor of the other family, 
of whom positive record has been obtained, was John Barber of 
Worcester, Mass., probably born in Boston in 1714. 

Of neither of these families had a genealogy been published, 
though I learned through correspondence that several descend- 
ants of Thomas Barber of Windsor, Conn., had done more or 
less work in tracing their direct lineages. Among these were 
the late Peter J. Barber of Santa Barbara, Cal., and the late 
Levi A. Barber of Duluth, Minn., who, some years ago, pub- 
lished a small pamphlet containing in brief form, the records of 
his direct line. Mr. George H. Barbour of Detroit, Mich., had 
employed Mr. Fred Carlisle to prepare and publish a very small 
volume of Barber records, but devoted mainly to Mr. Barbour's 
direct line of ancestry. Also, the late Mr. Oliver E. Wilson of 
Norwalk, Conn., had made a small collection of records, which 
his son kindly furnished for use in the present compilation. 

Mrs. Minnie Ward Kellogg, of Syracuse, N. Y., had collected 
some records of the branch of the Barber family from which she 



6 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

is descended, and which in the fourth generation from Thomas 
of Windsor settled in New York State. 

Through correspondence with Mr. Edmund D. Barbour of 
Boston, "^Mass., I learned that while collecting records for a 
genealogy of the descendants of George Barber of Medway, he 
had secured a large amount of data regarding the descendants 
of John Barber of Worcester, supposing at the time, that this 
John Barber was a descendant of George of Medway. Failing 
to establish this connection, however, Mr. Barbour kindly en- 
tered into an arrangement for turning over to me this collection 
of records. 

The original intention was to publish in one volume, not only 
the records of the two Barber families already referred to, but 
also the records of the descendants of Thomas Gleason of Wat- 
ertown, Mass. 

I finally employed Miss Lillian May Wilson to edit the pro 
posed volume, to establish certain missing links in the genealog- 
ical chain and to make such further compilation as could be done 
in a limited time. 

In the few months allotted for the work. Miss Wilson gath- 
ered so much additional matter, that it was found that the 
Barber records alone, would make a large volume, and it was 
therefore decided to publish them in one volume, and to publish 
a separate Gleason Genealogy, which has been done. 

The Barber Genealogy is composed of two sections, as follows: 

Section i. A Genealogy of the descendants of Thomas Barber 
of Windsor, Conn., compiled by Miss Wilson. 

Section ii. A Genealogy of the descendants of John Barber of 
Worcester, Mass., the records for which were fur- 
nished, as already explained, by Mr. Edmund D. 
Barbour of Boston, Mass. 

Much credit is due Miss Wilson, without whose careful and 
thorough preparation and distinguished ability for this kind of 
work, this volume would not have attained its present propor- 
tions, nor would it so soon have been published.

Mr. Floyd N. Barber, of Grafton, Pennsylvania, has prepared the 
accompanying list of corrections and additions which he wishes made a part

suggested that this list be cut into strips, one for each page, and that each 
strip be pasted at one end to the margin of the appropriate page of the 
Genealogy.

jQ THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

The arrangement of Section I of this volume is ^™»";<' Jj'^^ 
used by genealogists generally, and therefore needs but httle 

explanation. 

The records are arranged according to generations the emi- 

grlu ancestor being the first generation, his children the second, 

his grandchildren the third, and so on. 

All descendants are numbered consecutively, t^^^™?™; 

ancestor being No. 1, his children being numbered 2, 3, 4 etc. 

T; se whose'-records are extended into the succeednjg genera- 

tion are designated by having the character + placed before the 

name and number in each case. 

The task of compiling a genealogy is an exceedingly indefinite 

one as t„ magnitude. It may be confined wrthm very narrow 
bounds, or it may be extended indefinitely. 

The scone of the present work has been limited to as complete 
an hist ,ry and record of the early generations of the descendants 
o? ThomL Barber, of Windsor, as could be obtamed, together 
with such later records, as could, at the same time, and wi hout 
d lay te collected. The work of extending a genealogy to m- 
cUdea very large number of descendants in the present gener- 
al, is o,^ re'-quiring the work of years -'-f "^^ ™-f^ ; 
since all later information must be secured th.ough corre 

spondence. 

The aim of the publisher of this volume, has been, therefore 
not to produce a complete genealogy of the descendants of 
Thomas Barber of Wmdsor, but to furnish a foundation upon 
which future family historians may build. 

As such, the book is now presented, and if it shall tend to 
fostr in tte many descendants, a true pride of family, a pride 
n clean right liviig, a pride in an ancestry which has borne 
well i'r part, not only in the material development but also in 
riintelectial and spiritual upbuilding and uplifting of every 
community where its lot has been cast an emiobbng pr.de which 
shall make more worthy, the sons and daughte.s of this brave, 
hardy, pioneering race, it shall well have served its pinpose.

THE BARBER GENEALOGY. H 



BARBER. 



Thomas Barber of Windsor, Conn., a partial record of whose 
descendants is contained in this vokime, was the first of that 
name to emigrate from England to America. Others, however, 
soon followed. The records of Medway and Dedham show that 
a Richard Barber was located at the latter place in 1638, and 
George and Edward in 1640 and 1644. A James Barber was in 
Dorchester in 1637, Jeremy in Cambridge in J641, and John in 
Salem about the same time that Thomas arrived in Windsor. 
Numerous others of the name came at later dates. 

These early emigrants may or may not have been of the same 
family. Probably they were but remotely, if at all, related, and 
it is also likely that they came from different parts of England. 
There is a tradition to the effect that two brothers of Thomas of 
Windsor came to America shortly after his arrival here, but no 
proof of this has yet been found. 

No attempt has been made at tracing the English ancestry of 
Thomas Barber. The frequent occurrence of the name in so 
many parts of England, together with the absolute uncertainty 
as to the birthplace of the Emigrant Thomas, makes the quest 
for his English ancestry one which would require months and 
perhaps years for its completion and the task is left to future 
historians. 

The origin of the name is a question upon which there is some 
difference of opinion. All agree, however, that Normandy was 
its original European home, and that it came into England at the 
time of the Norman Conquest in the llth century, and the claim 
has been made that it came into Normardy indirectly from Persia. 

The greater number of those who have made a study of family 
names, ascribe its derivation to the trade of hair cutting and hair 
dressing. The fashion of elaborate hair dressing and^of fastidi- 



j2 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

ous care of the beard was brought into England by the Normans, 
and so popular did it become at Court, that skillful hair dressers 

were much sought after. , . u ' 

Among the royalty, nobility and wealthy gentry, the barber s 
position was an important one in the household He was a close 
confidant of his employer and only men of fidelity and high 
standing were chosen for the position. The barbers were also 
skilled in surgery and in the use of drugs and not the least of 
their duties, was that of physician to the household. Among the 
titled barons, it became the custom to bestow upon their barbers 
their own titles, calling them " Baron Barbers," a practice which 
the London records show to have prevailed until comparatively 

recent times. ^ ,t td u 

A no less authority, however, than the late Dr. Henry Barber 
of London, whose study of this particular name would naturally 
be most thorough and complete, claims that the theory of its 
derivation from the hair dressing trade, is extremely doubtful. 
He states that the more probable origin "is from St. Barbe sur 
Gaillon a local name in Normandy, where was the celebrated 
Abbey of St. Barbara," whence comes the name of ''Barber or 
Barbour, a hamlet in Dumbartonshire," and he cites in support 
of this theory, the personal names, " Bernard Barb de Barbes 
tenant in the Domesday book ; St. Barbe on the Roll of Battel 
Abbey • WiUiam de St. Barbara, Bishop of Durham, A.D., 1143 ; 
Le Barbier, Court of Husting, London, 1258." Dr. Barber also 
gives the various French forms of the name as Barbe, Barbier, 
Barbare, Barberie and Barbry ; the German form as Barber. 

Either theory of origin accounts for the prevalence of the 
name in nearly all parts of England and Scotland, and also for 
the great number of unrelated families bearing the name. Like 
many other colonial names, that of Barber appears in this coun- 
try under various forms, as Barbar, Barbur, Barbor, Barbary, 
Barberie and particularly among families of Scottish origin as 

Barbour. .,. . r- i j j 

There are numerous distinguished old families in England and 
Scotland bearing this name, and the Armories contain record of 
some nine or ten coats of arms of the Barber families. 

Bedfordshire, about 40 miles north of London, has been by 
many of his descendants, believed to be the birthplace of Thomas 
the Emigrant. A reference to the name in Nichols' " Bedford- 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 13 

shire " seems, therefore, of sufficient interest to be quoted here. 
In the chapter entitled, " Description of the Church and Mem- 
orial Stones of Linton Parish," occurrs the following paragraph : 

"A stone inlaid with (a man, a child, both now missing) a wo- 
man. Under is writ : 

" Of your charity pray for the soules of John Barbar and 
Agnes his wyff ; the which John deceased in the yere of o"^ Lord 
God M'CCCCXV, on whose soules I'hu have mercy. Amen." 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 15 



FIRST GENERATION. 

1. THOMAS BARBER, whose name appears in the early 
Colonial Records of Windsor, Conn, was born probably in the 
County of Bedfordshire, England, about 1614. 

He came to Windsor in 1635 with the party fitted out by Sir 
Richard Saltonstall, under Francis Stiles, a master carpenter of 
London. He was then 21 years of age, and was the first of the 
Barber name in New England. 

The following is a copy of a portion of the London Passenger 
Register for the ship " Christian " in which the Saltonstall party 
sailed for America. 

"16 Marcij 1634 

"Theis vnderwritten names are to be transported to New 
England imbarqued in ye " Christian" de Lo ; (from London) 
Joh. White Mr. bound thither, the men having taken ye oath of 
Allegiance & Supremacie.

4 Tho : Barber 21 

The ancient Jewish year which opened with the 25th of March 
continued long to have a legal position in Christian countries. 
In England, it was not until 1752 that the 1st of January became 
the initial day of the legal year, as it had long been of the pop- 
ular year. 

The "Christian," therefore, sailed on the 16th of March 1635 
instead of March 1634, as the London Custom House Record 
states. 

According to the Windsor records, in 1635 Thomas Barber 
was granted "a lot ten rods west of Humphrey Hyde's Mill 
Road, 8 acres anc 22 rods wide, bounded south by Mill Brook, 
extending as sts.ted 2 rods wide, to accommodate Barber and 
Alvord, and also a way for Mr. Wareham, Minister, to go to his 
lot north of Barber's and Alvord's and ended in the Poquonnock 
Road." 



16 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

It is evident from the records, that Francis Stiles failed to 
fulfill his contract with Thomas Barber and the other young men 
of his party, for on Mch. 28, 1647 the following order was made 
by the Court of Hartford : Ord. " That Mr. Francis Stiles shall 
teach Geo. Chappie, Thos. Cooper and Thos. Barber, his ser- 
vants (apprentices) in the trade of a carpenter, according to his 
promise for their services for their term, behind 4 days a week 
only to saw and slitt their own work that they are to frame 
themselves with their own hands, together with himself or some 
other master workman ; the time to begin for the performance 
of this order 14 days hence without fail." 

Thomas Barber's residence, it is stated, was located "upon an 
ancient road which running about southwesterly from the rivulet 
(near where the present road from Palisade Green comes in) in- 
tersected the Poquonnock road above the old mill." On the 
north side of this road were the residences of Thos. Barber, 
Humphrey Hyde, and Alex Alvord, and on the south side that 
of Jonathan Gillett. 

Thomas Barber was a soldier with the rank of Sergeant, in 
the Pequot War ; he distinguished himself by his bravery in a 
number of fights with the Pequots, and particularly in the taking 
of a fort which the Indians considered impregnable. After de- 
scribing the march and the plan of the attack, Capt. Mason 
gives the following account of the exploit. 

" We called up our forces with all expedition, gave fire thro' 
the Pallisade upon them ; the Indians being in a dead, indeed 
their last sleep. Then we wheeled off and fell upon the main 
entrance, which was blocked up with bushes about breast high, 
over which the Captain passed, intending to make good the en- 
trance, encouraging the rest to follow. Lieut. Seeley endeav- 
ored to enter, but being somewhat encumbered stepped back 
and pulled out the bushes, and so entered, and with him about 
16 men. We had formerly concluded to destroy them by the 
sword and save the plunder. 

Whereupon, Capt. Mason, seeing no Indians, entered a wig- 
wam, where he was beset with many Indians \/aiting all oppor- 
tunities to lay hands on him, but could not prevail. At length 
Wm. Heydon espying the breach in the wigwam, supposing 
some Englishman might be there, entered ; but in his entrance 
fell over a dead Indian, but speedily recover ng himself, the 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 17 

Indians some fled, others crept under their beds. The Captain 
going out of the wigwam saw many Indians in the lane or street ; 
he making towards them they fled, were pursued to the end of 
the lane, where they were met by Edward Pattison, Thomas 
Barber, with some others, where seven of them were slain." 

This occurred probably in June 1637. 

While returning from this memorable fight Thomas Barber en- 
gaged with Lieut. Cook in a discussion on religious and church 
matters, and becoming incensed at some remark made by the lat- 
ter, struck him, for which offense the Court adjudged that he 
should forfeit his military rank, and pay a fine of five pounds. 

In 1641 the lands in the locality called by the Indian name 
Massaco, were apportioned among the Colonists. Thomas Bar- 
ber was granted about 600 acres of these lands. 

The records of Northampton, Mass., contain the following 
regarding Thomas Barber : 

"A Towne Meeting 24th of 4 mon. 1661. 

"The day and year abovesaid it was voted and agreed 

Thomas Barber of Windsor may bee an inhabitant of this Towne 
and grant him a home lott and alsoe liberty to looke out a platt 
of ground to the quantity of 20 acres, and if it doe encourage 
him to come they grant it (to him) upon this condition ; that he 
come and inhabit and make improvemente of it within a yere, 
after the date of—" 

This proposition from the town of Northampton, seems not to 
have been considered, as Thomas died the following year at his 
home in Windsor. 

From all that can be learned of the character of Thomas Bar- 
ber, it is evident that he was a man of strong convictions, but 
very liberal in his views, especially so for the times in which he 
lived. It was his contention that the Church had no right to 
interfere in temporal matters, which caused the trouble between 
him and Lieut. Cook. He was, to a marked degree, impulsive 
and energetic and possessed of great shrewdness in business 
matters, but with an uprightness of character which won for him 
the confidence and respect of the Colonists. Brave, fearless and 
resourceful in times of peril, he was a prominent figure in the 
defense of the colony, and an Indian fighter of whom the savages 
stood in awe. 



18 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

The Hartford Probate Records contain the following regard- 
ing the settlement of Thomas Barber's estate. 

Barber, Thomas, Windsor, Invt. i:i32-14-00 ; taken 20, Oct. 
1662, by Benj. Newberry and John Moore. 

Court Record, Page 187—4 Feb., 1662-3, Invt. approved. 
Samuel was placed with his brother Thomas Barber to learn a 
trade ; Mercy (Mary) Barber was placed with Lt. Walter Fyler 
and his wife until 18 years of age, unless she marries before, 
with her Master's and Dame's and eldest brother's approbation ; 
Josias Barber was placed with Dea. John Moore until 21 years 
of age to learn a trade ; Thomas Barber doth engage to take 
Samuel Barber's portion and after two years from the present to 
allow 6% simple interest per annum. John Barber took Josias' 
portion upon the same terms.

On Oct. 7, 1640, Thomas Barber married Jane or Joan 



(surname not known). She is supposed by some to have been 
a daughter of one of the Dutch settlers, and another authority 
states that she was the first white woman to land in Connecticut. 

He died on Sept. llth, and his wife Joan on Sept. 10th, 1662.

In the Hartford Probate records it will be observed that the 
name of the fifth child of Thomas and Joan Barber is given as 
Mercy instead of Mary, as shown above. Also some records 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 19 

seem to indicate that she married a Hale, but the Gillett family- 
records furnish conclusive evidence of her marriage to John 
Gillett. 

It is possible that in the records showing the name of Hale, 
her marriage was confused with that of her sister Sarah's to 
Timothy Hall, as a confusion of the names Hale and Hall is 
quite common. 



20 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 



SECOND GENERATION. 

2. JOHN barber;-^ (Thomas^) bp. July 24, 1642. He m. 1st 
in Springfield, Conn., Sept. 2, 1663, Bathsheba Coggin, (some- 
times o-iven Coggen or Cousens) who d. in 1688 ; he m. 2nd May 
1, 1689, Hannah, widow of Thomas Brancroft, and probably dau. 
of Samuel Gardner, of Hadley. 

The records seem to indicate that as a very young man, he 
spent some time in Springfield, and was married there, but settled 
first in Windsor. In 1664 his father's place in Windsor was 
made over to him, but in 1671, he transferred it to his brother 
Samuel, and removed to Springfield. Burt's History of Spring- 
field states that he had two children born prior to his removal to 
that place. His other children were born in Springfield. The 
same authority states that he served for eight years as one of the 
selectmen of Springfield, and he is referred to, in the early 
records, as Deacon John Barber. 

In 1684 he removed from Springfield to Suffield. Here, 
according- to some records, he was a deacon and also a selectman. 
But the records, both of Springfield and Suffield, are much con- 
fused regarding this John Barber and his family. 

This has presented one of the difficult problems of the present 
work, and after a careful consideration of all the information ob- 
tainable on the subject, the conclusion seems inevitable that 
among the early settlers, both of Springfield and Suffield, there 
were other Barber familes, descended probably from one of the 
Massachusetts emigrants, but certainly not descended from 
Thomas, of Windsor. 

For instance, a John Barber, Sr., and a John Barber, Jr., took 
the oath of allegiance in Springfield, Jan. 1, 1678. These per- 
sons could not have been John (son of Thomas, of Windsor) and 
his son John, as the latter would have been but nine years old on 

that date. 

Again, the records of Springfield contain a list of claimants to 
lands granted to deceased soldiers of King Philip's War. In this 
list there appears the name of "John Barber, son of John, of 
Springfield." This list bears date of June 1736, and as the mor- 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 21 

tuary records seem to give positive evidence that John,^ John,^ 
Thomas, of Windsor/ died in 1 690, this appears to confirm the 
theory that there were other families in Springfield descended 
from one of the other Barber emigrants. 

The frequent occurrence of the names Thomas and John in 
these families renders the problem still more difficult, and the 
records here given of John Barber (son of Thomas, of Windsor) 
and of his family, are all that research to this date, has been able 
to establish with any degree of certainty. It is to be hoped that 
some future historian may be more successful. 

Deacon John Barber died Jan. 17, 1712. His will was proven 
in February of the same year, and it is stated that the surname 
very soon thereafter disappears from the records of Suffield. As 
will be seen by the records of the sons of this family (third gen- 
eration) it is not improbable that the surname became extinct in 
this particular line with that generation.

his second wife, Mary (Dover) Phelps. 

The old Winds'jr records show that in 1664, Thomas Barber^ 
bought land in Windsor "whereon he builded, the lot of Samuel 
Pond, except about 1 1/2 acres next to Silver Street on which 
Pond's house stood, and which doubtless faced the Hollow Fall 
Road." 

Other records show that Thomas and his brothers John and 
Samuel were among the original grantees of Simsbury, having 
received a portion of the " Meadow Lands " lying along the River 
Massaco, under an order of the General Court, of Hartford, of 
December, 1666, which stipulated that "within two years the 



22 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

person to whom granted should improve them by plowing, mow- 
ing, building, fencing, etc." 

In 1669 Massaco was set off from Windsor and made a sepa- 
rate township under the name of Simsbury, to which Thomas and 
his brother Samuel, with their families, removed in 1670 or 1671, 
and began improving the lands at that place which they had 
inherited from their father Thomas.^ 

Thomas Barber ^ was lieutenant of the first military company 
of Simsbury, and was known as Lieut. Thomas. He built the 
first saw-mill and grist-mill in Simsbury, also the first church, 
regarding the location of which there was some contention among 
the settlers, which was finally decided by lot, and the location 
fixed in the southern end of Terry's Plains. 

Thomas Barber died in Simsbury, May 10, 1713. His estate 
was valued at ^^488 18s 3d.

The name of the husband of Sarah Barber, third child in the 
above family, is given in some records as " Roe," and it has been 
claimed that he was an ancestor of the Rev. A. S. Roe. The 
name, however, is given "Robe" in the Simsbury records, and 
in his will Thomas Barber mentions his daughter Sarah, wife of 
Andrew Robe. The evidence is also fairly conclusive that there 

was no issue. 

William Phelps, the father of Mary, wife of Thomas Barber,'' 
was born in Tewksbury, County Gloucester, England, 1599. He 
removed to Somerset or Dorsetshire, England. His first wife 

was Elizabeth (surname not known). He came to Dorchester, 

Mass., in 1630, and in 1636 removed to Windsor, Conn. He ap- 
plied to be made freeman, Oct. 19, 1630. He was a member of 
the jury impaneled for the trial of Walter Palmer for the murder 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 23 

of Austin Brotchus, being the first trial by jury in New England. 
That he was a highly respected and active citizen, is evidenced 
by the various positions of trust which he occupied. He was 
member in 1636 of the first court held in Connecticut, and of the 
court which in 1637 declared war against the Pequots. Was 
magistrate from 1638 to 1642, and again in 1658 ; was foreman of 
the first Grand Jury in 1643, and deputy to the General Court 
from 1645 to 1649, and from 1651 to 1658 ; was magistrate again 
from 1658 to 1662, and in 1641 was appointed member of a com- 
mittee on lying. His 2nd wife, Mary Dover, is said to have been 
a fellow passenger from England with him. They were married 
in Windsor. 

His Windsor residence is about three quarters of a mile north- 
west of Broad Street, on the road to Poquonnock. As late as 
1859 it was owned by Dea. Roger Phelps. 

William Phelps, Sr., died July 14, 1692. His wife died Nov_ 
27, 1675. 

4. SARAH BARBER,- (Thomas,^) bp. July 19, 1646; m. Nov. 
26, 1663, Timothy Hall. They settled on a part of her father's 
land in Windsor, but afterwards (1679) removed to Suffield, 
where the name frequently occurs, especially in the older records 
as "Hale."

have been another daughter belonging to this family.

24 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

John Drake, the father of Ruth, was descended from the illus- 
trious English family of that name, which had its seat at Ashe. 
In England the name has long been borne by many distinguished 
as navigators, clergymen, martyrs, and authors. Among the 
foremost of these English families is that which has its seat at 
Ashe, Co. Devon and from it descended the greater portion of 
the Drakes of Massachusetts and Connecticut. The line of an- 
cestry of the Windsor (Conn.) Drakes may be thus summarized : 
John of Exmouth, Eng. 1360; m. Christian, dau. of John 

Billet ; he acquired the estate of Ashe. His widow 

m. 2nd, Richard Francheyney. 

John, m. Christian, dau. of John Antage, and settled at Otter- 
ton ; founded the Otterton family of Drake, through 
his son. He was unlawfully excluded from Ashe by 
his half brother Christopher Francheyney (son of 
his mother by her 2nd marriage. 

John inherited Otterton ; m. a Cruwys of Cruwys Morchand. 

John of Otterton ; m. Agnes, dau. of John Killoway. 

I 
John settled first at Axmouth, and by a suit-at-law recovered 

Ashe. He. m. Margaret, dau. of John Cole of Rill. 

John inherited Ashe ; m. Anne, dau. of Roger Greenville ; his 
son Bernard inherited Ashe. 

Robert settled at Wiscomb, Parish of South Leigh, Co. Devon. 

William of Wiscomb, Co. Devon. 

John, b. at Wiscomb, Co. Devon about 1590 or 1600 ; m. Eliz- 
abeth Rogers. He came to Boston about 1639; 
he d. from the result of an injury, Aug. 17, 1659, 
His widow d. Oct. 7, 1681, it is stated, "at 100th 
year of age." If so, she must have been several 
years older than her husband, or else, which is 
more probable, he was b. at a considerably earlier 
date than stated above. 

I 
John, b. about 1635 ; m. Hannah, dau. of Thomas Moore. 

I 
Ruth, b. Dec. 1. bp. 6th, 1657 ; m. Samuel Barber of Windsor.

The dates of birth of the children of this family, as given by 
the best authorities, are greatly at variance with the clear and 
unmistakable evidence contained in the father's will. 

Stiles' "Ancient Windsor" gives the birth of a son John, but 
places him as the son of the first wife. 

In Samuel Barber's will, dated P'eb. 21, 1708-9, it will 
be observed that he makes provision for his son John w/ien he 
shall come to the age of 21 years. Now, if this son John had been 
born in 1676, he would have been at least 11 years old at the 
time the father's will was written, whereas it is evident from that 
document that he was the youngest son. P"urther, John Barber, 
the son of Samuel, was married in 1717, at which date, had he 
been born in 1676 he would have been 41 years old, and his wife, 
Jane Alvord, born in 1698, would have been 21 years younger 
than he ; all of which is, to be sure, a possible situation, but 
hardly a probable one, in those days of early marriages. 

The New England Gen. & Hist. Reg., Vol. V, page 64, makes 
mention of John Drake Barber, son of Samuel and Ruth, b. Jan. 
25, 1676. This is the only record found of John Drake Barber, 



26 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

From all this evidence, the conclusion seems inevitable that if 
there was an older son John, he must have died young ; and as to 
the confusion regarding the date of his birth, it is not improbable 
that he was the son of the first wife. At all events, the son 
John who was living at the time of the father's death was a 
younger child, and in all probabilities the youngest son, born 
presumably about 1694. 

The dates given above as the dates of birth of Elizabeth and 
Sarah are undoubtedly incorrect, as in his will, their father Sam- 
uel provides that they and their sister Mindwell shall be paid 
£2S each when they shall be 18 years of age, so that they must 
have been under 18 years of age when the father's will was made, 
and hence born after 1690. 

Stiles' " Ancient Windsor" gives Sept. 25, 1704, as the date of 
birth of the daughter Mary, but in the record of the Brown fam- 
ily, the same authority states that she married Peter Brown in 

1696, or eight years before the date of her birth. In the Appen- 
dix of the volume mentioned. Dr. Stiles calls attention to this 
discrepency. It will be seen, by reference to the wills heretofore 

mentioned that there was a daughter Mary belonging to this 
family ; that she was married prior to the making of her father's 

will, in Feb., 1708-9, and in her sister Mindwell's will she is 

specifically mentioned as the wife of Peter Brown. Hence she 

was evidently one of the older children. 

In Samuel Barber's will he makes unconditional bequests to 

his son Benjamin, which would indicate that he was of age at 

the time the will was made, and hence must have been born 

prior to 1690, as given in the above record.

Dorchester, Mass., with the Rev. Mr. Wareham. An interesting 
relic in the possession of a descendant of the Gillett family is a 
bible brought from England by Jonathan Gillett. 

This bible is of the Geneva edition of 1 599, which is known as 
the " Breeches Bible " for the reason that the fig ieaf garment 
worn by our first parents is translated "breeches" instead of 
"apron " as in the King James verson. 



30 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

In the Gillett family this particular copy is known as the 
" Bear Bible " from the fact of its once having been used to prop 
open a window, and a bear in trying to effect an entrance through 
the opening, clawed the leaves, making marks which still remain.

Will of Josiah Barber of Windsor. 

Barbour, Lieut. Josiah — Windsor — Invt. i^81 7-01-00 Taken 
January 7th-l 729-30, by Jacob Drake, Job Loomis and Timothy 
Loomis. Will dated Apr. 1st 1726. 

I, Josiah Barbour, of Windsor, wheelwright, do make this my 
last Will and Testament ; I give unto Sarah my wife for her to 
have and enjoy 1/3 part of my lands, some portions that I pur- 
chased of Ebenezer Gilbert and Ebenezer Spencer, and also of 
Ebenezer Williams, land that belonged to Mark Kelsey, and 1/3 
part of the land I purchased of Josiah Cooke and Joanna, his 
wife. I also give unto my wife for her to have and enjoy only 
for and during ye time she shall happen to live and remain my

widow; my parlour or lower room of my dwelling house, also 1/2 
part of the west end of my barn. Also, I give her a feather 
bed, a mare and a cow, to be her owne for ever, and one year's 
provisions. The reason I have not given unto my wife any 
more of my moveable estate is because that I had none of her es- 
tate left her by her former husband, for she disposed of the same 
unbeknown to me, and she may dispose of my estate (if given) 
as she did her former husband's, and so leave herself destitute. 

I give to Nathaniel Barbour, my eldest son, besides what I 
have already given him by deed of gift, all my land in the lower 
field on the west side of the road to Windsor, 1/3 part of the 
land I purchased of Ebenezer Williams, that belonged to Mark 
Kelsey 1/3 part of the land I purchased of Josiah Cook, and 
Joanna his wife, and also 1/3 part of the land I purchased of 
Ebenezer Gilbert and Ebenezer Spencer; also 1/3 part of my 
undivided land that shall be laid out by virtue of any right be- 
longing to me. 

I also give unto my son Nathaniel Barbour £20 in money, to 
be paid him by his brother Aaron Barbour. 

I give unto my son Jonathan Barbour, besides what I have 
already given him by deed of gift, 2/3 part of the land purchased 
of Ebenezer Williams that belonged to Mark Kelsey, 2/3 part of 
the land I purchased of Ebenezer Gilbert and Ebenezer Spencer, 
also 1/2 part of all undivided lands. I give him £20 as money 
to be paid him by his brother Aaron Barbour. 

I give my son Aaron Barbour my home lott, dwelling house, 
barn and all edifices erected on same, with other lands. Also I 
give him my "wheelwright" Tools. I give to my two daugh- 
ters, Abigail Brown and Rebecca Drake, to each of them ;^80 
in current pay or 2/3 money. I give unto my daughter Abigail 
£S more. I give to my grandchildren, to Elizabeth Drake if she 
continues to live at my house till she comes of age, the sum of 
£20 in currency pay or 2/3 money ; and to Hannah Drake ;^15 
as money. I make my sons Nathaniel Barbour, Jonathan Bar- 
bour, and Aaron Barbour Executors.

Springfield, who was b. July 6, 1659. 

The vagueness and inaccuracy of the records as noted, with 
reference to John Barber,- are still more apparent in the third 
generation. 

All records seem to agree that Joanna was the name of the 
wife of John Barber,' and Burt's History of Springfield gives 
her name and date of birth as above. 

The records of Suffield give the births of the following Barber 
children. 

54. T. Hannah, b. May 27, 1682. 

55. II. Mary, b. Feb. 8, 1683. 

56. III. John, b. Feb. 19, 1687. 

57. IV. Joseph, b. Feb. 18, 1689. 

It has been assumed by some historians that these are the 
children of John and Joanna, but since John Barber was b. in 
1669, the first two children mentioned above were scarcely 13 
and 14 years younger than he, and he is less than 18 years older 
than the third child. He may have been the father of the 
fourth child, or it is barely possible (though very improbable) 
that he was also the father of the third child. 

He d. Oct. 21, 1690, at the age of 21, and as neither the Pro- 
bate nor other records make mention of his heirs, it seems far 
more probable that he d. without issue. 

11. THOMAS BARBER,' (John,^ Thomas,^) b. Feb. 4, 1674 ; 
m. Feb. 17, 1704, Sarah Ball, dau. of Jonathan and Mrs. Susanna 
Worthington Ball, who was b. Aug. 6, 1685. Thomas Barber d. 
Jan. 16, 1714. In the old Springfield Cemetery about one half 
mile west of the Railroad Bridge over the Connecticut River are, 
or were, the tombstones of Thomas Barber and of his father. 
Deacon John Barber. The inscription on the former is as 
follows ;

There is no record or evidence that Thomas Barber left any 
children. After his death his widow Sarah married 2nd, John 
White, of Hatfield. She d. Nov. 3, 1744, aged 59 years. 

Sarah Ball's mother was the widow of Nicholas Worthington, 
and 2nd wife of Jonathan Ball.

contain the following regarding Ephraim Buel's death and that ot 
his stepson John Barber, second child of the above family : 

"Ephraim Buel departed this Hfe the Sixteenth day of January, 
1718. 

"John Barber, son of John Barber, of Simsbury, departed this 
life the 16th day of January 1718. The above said PJphraim

west mountains to hunt horses on the 14th day of the above said 
month, and died in the woods and was found on the 17th day and 
brought home, it being a stormy time and the snow being deep 
and cold weather." 

The Hartford Probate Records contain the following regard- 
ing the settlement of the estate of John Barber of Simsbury : 

"Barber, John, Simsbury; d. 1st Mch., 1711-12. Invt. ^161-

May, 1716. 

Child :

(Other children of this family all d. in infancy.) 

Capt. John Higley, the father of Jonathan, was b. in Firmly, 
Surrey, England, probably about 1649, and came to America in 
1666. He is the ancestor of all bearing that name in America. 
His mother was Katherine Brewster, dau. of the Rev. John 
Brewster, and was of the same family as the Brewsters of the 

"Mayflower." 

Capt. John Higley was one of the seven original proprietors of 
Simsbury, and took an active part in all the affairs of the town. 
He was commissioned Ensign of a train band in 1687, and later 
was made Lieutenant and in 1698, Captain. His first wife, who 
was the mother of Jonathan, was Hannah Drake, dau. of John 
and Hannah (Moore) Drake, and was a sister of Ruth Drake 
who married Samuel Barber. (See No. 5).

Sarah, removed with her children to Simsbury. Abiel Brown 
in his " Genealogical History of W. Simsbury," gives the name as 
"Mercy," but states that she was a grand-daughter of the first 
Thomas Holcomb ; that she married Samuel Barber, and died in 
1787, aged 96, all of which agrees with the record of Sarah Hol- 
comb ; also her name is given as Sarah in her husband's will, 
and in this will Samuel Barber names as executors "my wife 
Sarah, and my brother Benjamin Holcomb."

The record of marriage of Samuel Barber and Martha Ponder, 
given above, is taken from Dr. Stiles' "Ancient Windsor." It 
will be noted that according to the dates given, Samuel Barber 
was 40 years old and his wife about 35 at the time of their mar- 
riage, an unusual occurrence in those days. 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 39 

The authority above quoted gives Aug. 2, 1758 as the date of 
Samuel Barber's death, and 1722-3 as the date of the death of his 
son Samuel. But the following extract from the Hartford Probate 
Records, shows that Administrators of the estate of Samuel 
Barber, the father, were appointed Mch. 5, 1722-3, and that 
Samuel Barber, the son, was a minor 15 years of age in 1732. 

"Barber, Samuel, Windsor — (Inventory, not dated) taken by 
Thomas Marshall, William Phelps and John Palmer.

makes bequest to each of the above named children, excepting 
the two who died in infancy. The Court Records further show 
that on Feb. 6, 1732, David Barber, of Hebron, a minor 16 years 
of age, chose Joseph Phelps, of Hebron, to be his guardian. 

May 17, 1733, Temperance Barber, chose Joseph Phelps. 

Dec. 27, 1739, Mary Barber, aged 14 years, chose as her guar-

126. I. Benjamin, b. July II, 1721. 

127. II. Eldad, b. Jan. 23, 1723. 
4-128. III. Hannah. 

The date of Hannah's birth has not been ascertained, and it is 
not certain that she was the 3rd child. She was, however, un- 
doubtedly the daughter of Benjamin and Hannah (Lewis) Barber, 



44 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

and as her husband, Smieon Moore, was born in 1732, she must 
have been much younger than her brother Eldad, and there were 
probably children between them. 

Mr. Fred Carlisle's little book entitled " Genealogy of George 
H. Barbour" contains the following : 

" Rev. Eldad Barber, the son of Eldad,* Benjamin,* Samuel,' 
Thomas,! b. in East Windsor in 1801, and who d. in Florence, 
Ohio, in 1870, at one time ministered in the North Third of 
Scan'tic Church. Deacon Oliver, Simeon, Capt. Noah, Jonathan 
and Ashbel, who marched to the relief of Boston in 1775, were 
also members of the Scan tic Church." 

It would seem, however, that there must have been a genera- 
ation between Eldad (No. 127) b. in 1723, and Rev. Eldad, b. in 
1801, and that the latter was more probably a grandson. 

41. JOHN BARBER,^ (Samuel,'' Thomas,^) b. about 1694 ; m.

Jane Alvord's father, Jeremy Alvord, was the son of Sergt. 
Benedictus Alvord, who came probably from County Somerset, 
England. 

A Synopsis of Jane Alvord's lineage is as follows :

Jane Alvord. mar. John Barber. 

Stiles' History of Windsor contains the following reference to 
the victory over the Pequot Indians, in the fight in which Sgt. 
Alvord participated : 

"A day of special thanksgiving was proclaimed throughout the 
Colonies, and everywhere the song of exultant victory was 
blended with prayer and praise to Him that ruleth on High. 

In all these rejoicings we may w^ell believe that the good peo- 
ple of Windsor had their full share. Capt. Mason, the very 
foremost man among them a' was their townsman. So was brave 
Sergeant Alvord. So were Thomas Barber and Edward Pattison, 
whose valiant right arm caused seven Indians ' to bite the dust.' " 

The above reference to the encounter with the seven Indians, 
may be construed as giving the greater portion of the credit to 



46 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

Edward Pattison, but in Capt. Mason's own account of it he 
gives fully equal credit to Thomas Barber. (See sketch under 
Thomas Barber, No. 1).

probably son of Sir Oliver Colt. We read, during the 1 5th cen-

probable the line of descent is as follows : 

Sir Peter, a peer of England, son of Sir John Button Colt.

John — son of John. 

John — son of John. 

John — son of John, who was b. in England about the year 1625 ;

Lieut. Samuel- Humphrey, m. Mary Mills, dau. of Simon and

d. Apr. 4, 1730. Their son,

Tryphene Humphrey, b. June 27, 1722 ; m. Dr. Samuel Barber. 

Dr. Samuel Barber had the reputation of a good citizen, 
although somewhat eccentric in his habits, and not unfrequently 
impulsive in his actions. He doted much on his skill in roots 
and herbs ; was famous as a hunter, the woods at that time afford- 
ing an abundance of game. In one of his hunting excursions in 
Norfolk, accompanied by some of his sons, they chased a large 
panther into his den, and how to dislodge him from his hiding 
place was the first question to be solved. The old gentleman, 
nothing daunted, Putnam like, descended into the cavern ; after 
groping his way some distance, the panther, not relishing this in- 
trusion upon his retreat, suddenly turned and made for the 
entrance of his den, which he accomplished by closely squeezing 
by his bold intruder. The panther on his arrival at the mouth 
of the den, seeing the party without, prepared to give him battle, 
stood motionless, when one of the sons discharged a ball through 
his body and intestines, which produced no emotion, the animal 
sullenly retaining his position. This act of the son called forth a 
sharp reprimand from the father for his not taking a more effective 
aim, and calling for his gun, the old gentleman discharged a ball 
through the head of the animal, which put an end to his existence. 
This exploit may justly be put on a parallel with the famous story 
of •' Putnam and the Wolf." 

The family of Barbers were among the earliest and most con- 
spicuous of West Simsbury. They were noted for their habits of 
immigration, and are to be found in various states of the Union ; 
few of the descendants (although numerous) are to be met with in 
the town of Canton. — Brown's " General Hist, of Simsbury, etc."

Daniel Eggleston was a lineal descendant of Begat Eggleston, 
b. probably in 1 590, and who came presumably from Exeter, Eng- 
land, to Dorchester, Mass., in 1630, and was the first of the name 
in this country. In 1636 he removed to Windsor, where he d. in 
1674. 

Daniel's grandfather, James (son of Begat) married Hester 
Williams, a sister of Roger Williams. She is said to have been 
the first white child born in Hartford. James Eggleston,^ served 
in the Pequot War, and received a grant of 50 acres of land.

(Wilcox) Stiles, and granddaugher of John Stiles, the Emigrant.

David, the son of this family, was Capt. David Barber of Rev- 
olutionary fame. There is considerable confusion regarding the 
date of his birth. The records of Hebron give but one David be- 
longing to this family, and the date of his birth is recorded as 
Mch. 30, 1740. The Hebron records also give the marriage 
of David Barber to Lois Dutton. Other records give the date of 
birth of Capt. David, who married Lois Dutton, as Aug. 16 or 18, 
1760, and since she was born in 1760, and if the tradition that he 
was a drummer boy in his father's company, is correct, the latter 
date of birth is by far the more probable one. The only reason- 
able explanation, therefore, is that the son David, b. Mch. 30, 
1740, must have died young and another son, born many years 
later, was given the same name.

The name of Gideon Barber is mentioned at different times in 
the early history of Windsor. In 1 749 he, with David Barber, 
probably his brother, (No. 137) were among a number of citizens 
who volunteered to build at their own expense, a free bridge

"across the Rivulet at the Ferry," an improvement which the 
town council declined to undertake at public expense, but 
granted permission, as above, to the citizens individually, on con- 
dition that it was made a free bridge forever. We are told that 
a sufficient number of the citizens accepted the terras, and "in 
1749, a good cart bridge was accordingly erected across the 
Tunixis."

THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 71 

Loannah (Filley) Barber was a lineal descendant of Capt. 
Aaron Cook, the line of descent being as follows : Loannah,' 
Edie,^ Dea. William,* Josiah,^ Nathaniel,'^ Capt. Aaron.^ 

Capt. Aaron was b. in England in 1610; came to Dorchester 
in 1630, and was granted land in Windsor in 1636, and was a 
prominent figure in the history of that place. In 1653 he was 
made Commander-in-chief of the 65 soldiers drafted from ten 
Connecticut towns for a war against the Dutch. 

"In 1687, Capt. Cook was given the rank of Major (then the 
highest military office in Mass.) and, after Andros' fall he was 
again Captain. In 1683 he was one of the County Court which 
sat in Springfield, upon the case of Mary Webster, * under strong 
suspicion of having familiarity with the devil,' — a case afterwards 
referred to the Court of Assistants at Boston, which resulted in 
her acquittal.' " — Stiles "Ancient Windsor." 

Loannah's grandmother, Edie Drake, was of the Drake family 
of Windsor, so many of whose members married into the Barber 
family. Her line of descent from the Emigrant being as follows : 
Edie,* Simon,^ John,"^ John.^ 

Jerijah Barber was probably a Revolutionary soldier, though 
the Revolutionary rolls of the State of Conn, do not contain the 
name. 

141. RUTH BARBER,* (John,« Samuel,^ Thomas,^) b. Aug. 
17, 1740; m. 1st, Titus Burr; 2nd, Ebenezer Burr, who was b. 
about 1742. The Burrs were cousins of Aaron Burr, with whom 
he spent some time just before engaging in the Canada Campaign 
with Arnold in 1776. 

Children : By 2nd marriage. 

475. L Sarah Burr, m. John Beach. 

476. iL Anna Burr, m. Isaac Balcom. 

477. in. Lucy A. Burr, m. William Lawrence. 

478. IV. Ansel Burr, m. Stanley. 

479. v. Pamela Burr, d. unmarried. 

480. VI. Pasley Burr. 

No record has been obtained regarding Ruth Barber's marriage 
to Titus Burr. He was a son of Noadiah, of the Hartford fam- 
ily of Burrs. Ruth's second husband, Ebenezer Burr, was the 
son of Ebenezer,* and a cousin of her first husband, Titus.

ing to assist by lifting a wheel of the wagon, David was fatally 
injured and died before they reached their destination. The 
widow afterward married William Dyer of that place.

The records of Simsbury show that a David Barber married 
Deborah Adams, and it has been assumed by some historians 
that this was David, the son of Dr. Samuel, mentioned above. 
No public record of this marriage has yet been found, and it is 
more than likely that it was burned at Canton. But that the 
wife of David Barber was Sarah Lawrence, is abundantly proven 
by the records and events in the family history of his descendants. 

Miss Julia Barber (No. 2264) of Charleston, W. Va., who with 
her brother, Levi Allen Barber, has made a careful study of this 
branch of the family, writes on this point as follows : — 

" I remember hearing my father and his old Uncle David H. 
(No. 671) who married Clarissa VVhelpley, talking of her (Sarah 
Lawrence) when I was a young girl. He told my father of her 
second marriage to William Dyer, which my father had not 
known of before that time (1857). She had two sons by her 
second husband, one named Lawrence Dyer." 

As this old Uncle David H. was the eldest son of David and 
Sarah (Lawrence) Barber, he would be unquestionable authority 
as to his mother's name. 

Miss Barber states that her grandfather, Daniel," after the 
death of his father, lived with his cousin Joab Lawrence, who 
was a son of Sarah Lawrence's brother Bigelow, and that the 
Lawrence relatives have visited at her father's house, one of 
them, Edmund Lawrence, being present at his golden wedding. 

She further writes, — " Bigelow Lawrence's picture is in Clarks, 
Onandaga, and father has shown it to me with almost veneration." 

It is probable that the David Barber who married Deborah 
Adams is David (No. 193) son of Isaac and Martha (Adams) 
Barber.

Bridgeport, N. Y., and whose family record is given above, is not 
positive, but the possibility is strong ; hence, with this explana- 
tion, the record of this and succeeding generations is inserted. 

The records of Daniel and Susannah (Wyllis) Barber and their 
descendants, were furnished by Mrs. Minnie Ward Kellogg of 
Syracuse, N. Y. In this branch of the family the name is fre- 
quently spelled "Barbur."

Isaiah and Rebecca (Foot) Butler, who was b. in Branford, 
Conn., Oct. 23, 1750. They settled first in Harwinton, where 
their first two children were born, but removed later to Green

The Rev. Isaiah Butler, the father of the above family, was a 
patriot, and there is abundant evidence in the family histor}'' in 
support of the tradition that he was in service in the cause of 
the colonists, although his name does not appear on any of the 
Revolutionary Rolls. During a part of the period of his service, 
he was living in Green Bush, N. Y., and during his absence in 
the army, his Tory neighbors destroyed and confiscated a great 
deal of his property. 

After returning from the army, Mr. Butler removed to Zoar, 
Mass., where his wife, Elizabeth Barber, died. He married 2nd, 
a Miss Hill, by whom he had six children. They removed to 
Schroon Lake, N. Y., where both he and his second wife died 
and were buried. 



98 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

Mr. Butler studied for the ministry in the Presbyterian Church, 
but before completing his preparation, he joined the Baptist 
Church, of which his wife was already a member, and became a 
minister in that denomination. 

In the possession of a descendant of Isaiah and Elizabeth 
(Barber) Butler, is an old letter written by a clergyman who 
visited in Mr. and Mrs. Butler's home. He described Mrs. But- 
ler as being an unusually bright, vivacious, and gifted woman, 
and stated that she had red hair, a fair complexion and blue eyes. 

The name Isaiah was a favorite one in the Butler family, the 
Rev. Isaiah being the third in his direct line, bearing the name. 
Perhaps on this account he adopted as a middle name, "Zada" 
and he is known to his descendants as Lsaiah Zada Butler, but 
in all official papers his name appears as Isaiah Butler, Jr., the 
name "Zada" in no case being used. 

According to the records, it seems that he was undoubtedly a 
descendant of John Butler, who was a member of the " Ancient 
and Honorable Artillery Company" in Boston in 1644, the line 
of descent being as follows : 

John Butler of Boston "Ancient and Honorable Artillery Co. 

1644; removed to Branford, Conn., where he 
d. in 1680 ; m. twice.

biography, entitled " The Very Singular Life of John Bruen, 
Esq., of Stapleford, Cheshire, England. About 100 years later 
this book was republished in England and again in 1857 in New 
York. 

The story thus preserved from generation to generation, is 
that of a de\ ^utly religious life, a life whose faith was shown by 




Bruen of Stapleford.

its works. John Bruen is, perhaps, the one example of a plain 
English country gentleman whose biography has been written, 
printed and re -printed, read and re-read, and whose name has 
been remembered for three centuries, simply because of the 
goodness and purity of his life. 

Rebecca Foot (or Foote), mother of the Rev. Isaiah Butler 
was descended from 

Nathaniel Foote, who married in England, Elizabeth Deming. 
They had six children b. in England and one 
b. in America. They settled first in Water-

settled in Norfolk, Conn., about 1768. He was a great traveler 
for his time. Having consumption, he was advised to spend some 
time in a warmer climate. Accordingly, in the fall of 1774, he 
took passage for New Orleans, and after arriving there, went up 
the Mississippi, and located a plantation on Big Black River, and 
returned in the fall of 1775. The following spring, he started 
with his family for the plantation, but conditions were much 
changed, owing to the breaking out of the Revolutionary War. 
He found his plantation occupied by other parties, from whom he 
could get neither possession or redress. His wife sickened and 
died, and his two children were drowned in crossing the Missis- 
sippi. A child had been born on their journey to New Orleans, 
which was named Atlantic, but it lived only a short time. 

After losing his family, Capt. Phelps entered the Revolution- 
ary Army, and was in service two years, and at the expiration of 
that time (1779) returned to his old home in Harwinton, Conn. 

After his second marriage he settled in Norfolk and in 1788 
removed froiii there to New Haven, Vt., where he died. He pub- 
lished a book of his travels, which was printed in Bennington, 
Vt. in 1788, entitled "Capt. Matthew Phelps, from Connecticut 
to the Mississippi River, 1778-80."

David Barber, of Hebron, Conn., father of Elihu, was a mer- 
chant in Hebron, Conn., and a wealthy man for those times. 
During the Revolutionary War, however, his fortune was swept 
away and Elihu, who had been reared in luxury, was left to face 
a life of toil and hardship. In his wife he had a strong, capable 

helper. 

Early in 1801 they sold their little, barren Connecticut farm, 
and with $700.00 in cash, set out with an ox team and sled for 
Pompey, N. Y., where they arrived the latter part of February. 
Here they bought 100 acres of land, the deed bearing the date of 
March 7, ISOl. They moved into a log house and while the hus- 
band worked to clear and improve the farm, the wife was busy 
with her loom, weaving, not only the linen and woolen for her 
own household, but for the neighbors as well. 

In 1810, a frame house "of the pattern so common in dear old 
Connecticut " was built and furnished, the busy loom having paid 
for the brick in the chimney, the sawing of all of the lumber and 
for the labor of shingling the house. 

The dairy business proved profitable, and Mr. Barber was 
known among the old settlers as ' Butter Barber." Additions 
were made to the farm until they owned over 500 acres. 

Mr. and Mrs. Barber were among the organizers of the First 
Baptist Church of Pompey, and Mrs. Barber, until her death, 
was one of its most active members. 

" Plain, unassuming people were they, in the front ranks of 
pioneers whose onward march has carried civilization from ocean 
to ocean."

Thomas Barber, father of the above family was born in Can- 
ton, Hartford County, Conn. He was well educated, particu- 
larly as a musician; was a good vocalist and played nearly every 
instrument then in vogue, the violin being his favorite. For 
years he wrote and taught music. He was engaged in farming 
in his early life, but later carried on a boot and shoe business. 

During the War of 1812, he raised a company of volunteers, 
but on the morning of starting for the front, he was thrown from

his horse and his shoulder broken, which prevented him from 
entering the service. Indeed, he never afterward recovered 
from the injury. In 1820 he removed with his family to Nelson, 
Portgage County, Ohio. 

Besides the usual hardships of a pioneer life, Mr. Barber had, 
the first year, an additional misfortune. Just as the long severe 
winter was setting in, his barn, containing practically all of his 
first year's crop, a good deal of his stock and all of his farming 
implements, was burned. But with the energy and courage of 
his race, he determined to regain his losses and provide a com- 
fortable home, and in the years that followed, he met with 
abundant success. 

In 1828, he and his wife were called upon to bear other 
troubles than those of a financial nature. Sickness entered their 
home and within fifteen months, five of their children were laid 
m their graves. 

Thomas Barber, like the emigrant ancestor whose name he 
bore, was a man of sterling qualities, honored and respected by 
all; his word was as good as his bond ; he was sound in judg- 
ment, public spirited and a man of dauntless courage. 

Percy Merrill, wife of Thomas Barber, was born in Hartford 
County, Conn., and died at their home in Nelson, Portage 
County, Ohio, May 19, 1849. 

A summary of her line of descent from the emigrant ancestor 
is as follows : 

Nathaniel Merrill, b. in England about 1610; came to Amer- 
ica and settled in Newbury, Mass. in 1634 ; m. 
Susan .

It is related of him that at one time, while hauling rye from 
the field with an ox team, the neck yoke dropped from one of the 
oxen, whereupon Mr. Barber took hold of the yoke, and taking 
the place of the ox, carried the load down the hill.

146 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

The names of the children of this family were obtained from a 
letter written by the son Sheldon, on Oct. 23, 1859, to his uncle 
Sheldon Barber of Torrington, copy of which was furnished by 
Miss Iduna J. Barber of Torrington, and is in part as follows: 

"My father's children, beginning with the eldest are as fol- 
lows : Huldah, Matilda, Anna, Sheldon, David L. and William. 
I was 24 the I5th of April last. Uncle Roswell is our nearest 
neighbor. He has children,- -Betsey, Elihu, Belinda, Polly, 
James N. and David O. 

Elihu (see No. 1494) has been teaching school the winter sea- 
sons and studying the languages in the summer, such as Greek, 
Latin, Hebrew, etc. I also followed the occupation of school 
teaching one winter, and expect to follow it the ensuing winter, 
beginning the 25th of Nov. next. 

" Uncle Friend lives 57 miles west of us. The family remain- 
ing at home are in good health. He has 8 children by his first 
wife, and 3 by his second. If you have any knowledge where 
Samuel Barber is, or what he is doing, please inform me when 
you answer this letter." 

In a letter written by Friend Barber from Troopsville, N.Y., 
he mentions his son Samuel, but none of the other children.

Oneida Co., N. Y., making the journey with ox teams. He built 
his log cabin on the banks of the Oneida River between the pres- 
ent towns of Oneida and Durhamville. Later he built a large 
frame farm house on the same site. 




The Rosvvell Barber Homestead. 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 147 

In those early days the only road to the settlement where Ros- 
vvell Barber lived was an Indian trail and the settlers found their 
way to the homes of their neighbors by means of blazed trees. 

Soon after arriving at their new home, Roswell Barber, with a 
few others arranged for religious services which were maintained 
steadily until 1815, when a church of 12 members was organized. 
Their pulpit was supplied by the " Circuit Riders " and to these 
hardy, self-sacrificing pioneer preachers who formed such an im- 
portant factor in the pioneer life of a century ago, the home of 
Roswell Barber was always open. 

He was a devoted member of the Baptist Church and the bell 
belonging to the church in Durhamville, which still rings out on 
Sunday morning, was his gift. 

The land for the old cemetery in Durhamville was purchased 
from him. This cemetery in which he and his wife were laid to 
rest, is directly opposite his home. The original deed is in pos- 
session of a collector of relics in Durhamville, and is considered 
an especially unique and curious document. Through the kind- 
ness of Mrs. F. H. Farwell of Orange, Texas, a descendant of 
Roswell Barber, a copy was obtained and is as follows : 

THIS INDENTURE, Made the fourteenth day of January,

The farm house built by Roswell Barber is shown in the ac- 
companying picture. A few changes have been made in it since 
it was first built. Originally a covered driveway led from the 
kitchen to the cheese house and the loom room, where for years 
his wife and daughters spun and wove the woolen sheets, kersey 
blankets and household linen. 

Durina: the War of 1812, Roswell Barber was stationed at 
Sacketts Harbor to guard the supplies.

There is a discrepancy between the Bible records of Amasa 
Barber's family and the dates shown on the gravestones in the 
Old Sheepfold Cemetery. According" to the inscription on 
Amasa Barber's gravestone, he "died May 7, 1831 ; aged 61 
years " but according to the Bible record he was b. Oct. 29, 
1773, so that he would have been a little past 57 years of age at 
the time of his death, if the date of death on the gravestone is 
correct. 

According to the Bible record Betsey Barber, wife of Amasa, 
was b. Nov. 15, 1776, while the inscription on her gravestone 
states that she d. June 22, 1849 aged 74 years. 

The cemetery inscription gives the date of death of the son 
Selah as Sept. 26, 1831; this record does not appear on the 
Bible record, nor is there any positive evidence that he and Ase- 
nath were twins, but there is a family tradition to that effect.

Virgil H. Barber was educated for the ministry, took orders 
in the Episcopal church, and was a clergyman of considerable 
prominence. 

The little volume entitled " Catholic Memoirs of Vermont and 
New Hampshire," by Bishop De Coesbriand, contains a bio- 
graphical sketch of each member of this family, extracts from 
the diary of the mother, Jerusha (Booth) Barber, and also remin- 
iscences by the youngest daughter, Josephine. 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 203 

It is related, that about the year 1814, Mr. Barber read, for 
the first time, the hfe of St. Francis Xavier, and became deeply 
interested in the Roman Catholic Church, and after much hesi- 
tation and discussion, both he and his wife resolved to enter that 
communion. 

It was the desire of both Mr. and Mrs. Barber to enter religious 
orders, and finally, after numerous interviews with the church 
officials, their marriage was annulled in order to permit them to 
follow what they believed to be the dictates of conscience. Mr. 
Barber was sent to Rome and subsequently became a Jesuit 
priest. 

Mrs. Barber entered the convent of the Sisters of the Visita- 
tion at Georgetown, taking the name of Sister Mary Augustine 
and became one of the teachers in the convent school. At this 
time she was 27 years of age, her husband 33. Their children 
were placed in charge of the Sisters of the Visitation. 

This order was a very poor one and for this reason more than 
the usual privation of religious orders was entailed upon its mem- 
bers. In her diary Mrs. Barber tells how, with difficulty, her chil- 
dren were made barely comfortable by using the cast off clothing 
of the girls of the convent school and how, on cold winter nights, 
she would creep to their bedside and add to their scanty coverings 
the cloaks and wraps of some of the other girls. The story of 
those years is a pathetic one, but told uncomplainingly. 

Throughout their lives she and her husband corresponded, but 
always addressed and referred to each other as brother and sister. 

As stated in the family record given above, the children all en- 
tered religious orders. 

Mrs. Barber died Jan. 1, 1860. Mr. Barber died at St. Thomas 
Manor, Charles County, Maryland, Feb. 23, 1864.

208 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

A sketch written some years ago by Levi Allen Barber, fifth 
child of the above family, contains the following regarding David 
Barber, the father. 

"In 1819 my father had come to the Allegheny River on toot 
from Bogardus Corners, where his father's farm was (now the 
present site of the city of Syracuse, in the State of New York) 
carrying his worldly goods and possessions on his shoulder. He 
and a few others joined together, buying a small flat bottomed 
boat, in which they floated down the Allegheny and Ohio Rivers 
until they came to the mouth of the Muskingum. Here my 
father had an uncle then living, who was at that time member of 
Congress, (Levi Barber No. 1422). 

" His uncle was a merchant, and he placed my father in his 
store, where he remained three or four years. His uncle then 
advanced him a few thousand dollars and he went to Chester, 
Meigs Co., Ohio, where he was commissioned postmaster, his com- 
mission bearing the signature of Return Jonathan Meigs and dated 
1823. He retained the office until let out by the democratic ad- 
ministration just before the inauguration of Harrison in 1841. 

" He also held the office of county treasurer for si.xteen con- 
secutive years, and I well remember when he used to start off on 
horseback to Columbus with his money in his saddle bags, to 
make his settlements. 

"Shortly after the political campaign of 1840, my father re- 
moved to Harmar, now a part of Marietta, Ohio, where he re- 
mained until the end of his life, Nov. 1st, 1887." 

The same sketch contains a beautiful tribute to the deep, 
religious character of the mother Lydia Newell (Stanley) Barber, 
a part of which is as follows : 

" I well remember when she used to ride off on Sunday morn- 
ings to some poor neighborhood where she had organized a Sun- 
day School, always carrying with her something for the material 
welfare of her proteges, thus laying up for herself treasures 
where moth and rust would not corrupt." 

"A Methodist Church had been built about 1843-4. My 
father had given the land and had contributed liberally to the 
building. I remember that he gave a barrel of whiskey for use 
at the time of the raising of the building. It was very gratefully 
accepted and was considered the proper thing then, which shows 
how times have changed. 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 209 

" On the occasion of the dedication of the church, my father 
had been given a rather conspicuous seat well forward with his 
family, when old Abe Pickens, one of my mother's numerous 
proteges strutted forward, dressed in my father's regimentals 
with the epaulets and brass buttons. This angered my father 
very much. He said to my mother, * You might at least have 
told me before giving those things to him.' She replied, 'You 
would never have used them again and Pickens promised to take 
off the epaulets and all the brass buttons, but I suppose the 
poor man had no other buttons to put on, but I will see that 
they are taken off.' " 

" I never remember seeing my father at the head of his regi- 
ment but once, which was, I think, about 1842, when he was 
retired by reason of his age."

214 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

Peter J. Barber was born near Nelson, Portage County, Ohio. 
He was educated in the district schools and at Windham Academy. 
After leaving school he learned the carpenter's and cabinet mak- 
er's trade, and also made some study of architecture. 

In 1852 he went to California with a party of gold seekers. 
The journey was made by crossing the Isthmus of Panama, and 
the voyage from there to San Francisco required 65 days' time 
and was one of great hardships, seventeen of the party dying on 
shipboard and all suffering greatly from hunger and thirst. 

They arrived in San Francisco May 22, 1852. The greater 
number of the party went to the mines, but Mr. Barber decided 
to remain in the city and work at his trade. While in San Fran- 
cisco he continued the study of architecture under the celebrated 
French Architect Heurn, and later assisted in draughting the 
plans for the State Capitol of California. He worked for several 
years in San Francisco as a builder and architect, and during his 
residence in that city he was Secretary of the Builders' Associa- 
tion, Treasurer of the Elysian club, a social organization, and an 
active member of the First Light Dragoons of San Francisco. 

In 1869 he removed to Santa Barbara and took an active part 
in the development and progress of that city. He was elected 
Mayor in 1880 and served as postmaster from 1882 to 1886, and 
in 1890, at the urgent request of a large number of citizens, he 
was again candidate for the mayoralty, and was elected by a 

large majority. 

During his administration, he planned the boulevard, fountam 
and other work of the Plaza del Mar, which is conceded to be the 
finest work of its kind along the coast. Another act to be 
credited to this administration is the building of the large out- 
fall and other sewers, sufficient in capacity for a city of 100,000 
inhabitants, at a cost of ^18,000. By persistent effort he saved 
the city over ^200,000, in thwarting a scheme for putting in a 
4 1/2x6 1/2 foot sewer a mile and six hundred feet long that 
could not be reached by one-fourth of the sewerage of the city. 
The city fire cisterns and flushing tanks were planned and super- 
intended by him, as well as most of the bridges. At the time of 
Piesident Harrison's visit to Santa Barbara, April 3, 1891, Mayor 
Barber arranged for his reception, and was himself the bearer of 
the city's welcome to the distinguished guest. 

In addition to the various offices mentioned, Mr. Barber was 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 215 

a member of the board of health for one term. He was Presi- 
dent of the Courty Mid-Winter Fair Association, exhibiting in 
San Francisco in 1893, and made the plan for the building and 
had charge of gathering the exhibits from different parts of the 
county and shipping them to the Fair Grounds. His idea for the 
design of the building was unique, being a fac simile of an old 
Egyptian pyramid. It attracted constant attention and drew 
forth many flattering comments from visitors. 

Mr. Barber was Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce Com- 
mittee on coast defense, and spent much time and money in get- 
ting the proposition of fortifying Santa Barbara before Congress. 
This proposition would have met with success, excepting for the 
ill-timed effort on the part of some members of the Chamber, to 
secure, at that particular time, a Federal Building for Santa 
Barbara. 

Mr. Barber was the first President of the Ohio Society of Santa 
Barbara, and on the occasion of President McKinley's visit to 
that city in May 1901, he received a cordial invitation to visit 
the President in his private car. 

Mr. Barber was an active member of the 1. O. O. F., the An- 
cient Order of United Workmen and the American Legion of 
Honor. A lengthy biographical sketch, which was published a 
short while before Mr. Barber's death, and from which the fore- 
going was quoted and condensed, closes with the following trib- 
ute to his character: 

" In his association with fraternal organizations, he has done 
all possible for their upbuilding, and for the promotion of frater- 
nal brotherhood, beneficence and social enjoyment; he has ever 
had the courage of his convictions, and dared to do right, regard- 
less of consequences of a personal nature. His life race is nearly 
run and he will go hence with gratitude for honors conferred, 
and with malice toward none. " 

Mary Jane Meehan Wheaton, wife of Peter J. Barber, was born 
in New Orleans, La., Oct. 26, 1841, and came to California in 
1854. She is the daughter of James and Araminta (Little) 
Meehan. Her parents were both born in Athlone, Ireland, but 
came to America in early childhood. 

Her father, James Meehan, died during the cholera epidemic 
of 1847, leaving his wife with two little children, (Mrs. Barber 



216 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

and her brother.) In 1849 Mrs. Meehan mariied, second, Benja-

" For many years he owned and commanded a sloop in which 
he performed great service for the Continental Government in 
carrying dispatches and supplies under the very guns of the Brit- 
ish ships." 

- An interesting account of his adventures was published some 
years ago, in the New York Sunday Dispatch under the title 
'Revolutionary Scenes' by T. R. Whitney, from which it ap- 
pears that when Norwalk was burned in 1779, he ran out of the 
harbor with his sloop loaded with the families and goods of his 
neighbors, escaping the British, and safely reaching Stamford."

THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 223 

be gained from a letter written in 1859 by his cousin Sheldon 
Wright, and quoted elsewhere in this volume. This letter states 
that Elihu was teaching school in the winter and in the summer 
working on the farm and occupying his spare time in the study 
of Greek, Latin and Hebrew. The following in regard to his 
life is contributed by his granddaughter, Mrs. Fanny Barber Far- 
well of Orange, Texas : 

" In an old scrap-book in which he kept all the items of inter- 
est during his long life, I find his license to preach given at Ver- 
non Village by the Presbytery of Oneida Co. the 9th day of 
Feb., 1837. While preaching at Vernon he edited a pamphlet 
called, "The Youth's Sermons." The writer has a collection of 
his sermons and lectures most carefully written by hand, extend- 
ing over a period of forty years of his active ministry and educa- 
tional work. On the back of each sermon is date written, place 
delivered and hymns sung. The following are a few of the 
places where he was located as pastor : Vernon, N. Y., Dur- 
hamville, N. Y., Springport, N. Y., Union Springs, N. Y., 
Oneida and Norwich, N. Y., Napicrville, 111., 1856, Geneva, 
III, 1860-62, Lake Forest, 111., 1866. He established a boys' 
school in Napierville and about 1866 he founded Oak wood Hall, 
a school for boys at Lake Forest, 111. 

In 1872 he went to Kansas and organized a Presbyterian 
church at Beattie, Kansas, and preached there until 1875. After 
being pastor of the Presbyterian church of Union Springs eight 
years, he built and established Oakwood Female Seminary in the 
village, raising the money mainly by subscriptions. The "Cauga 
Telegraph" of Oct. 23, 185U gave an account of the laying of the 
corner stone as follows: 

'* Rev. Barber followed with a few appropriate remarks. His 
reference to the institution being "founded upon a rock" was 
beautiful and caused a thrilling response in every heart, as on the 
site selected a ledge of rock approaches near the surface of the 
earth and upon this the foundation of the edifice rests. The site 
for the Seminary is on a rise of ground about 80 rods east of 
Main street, and just south of Oak Grove. The lot consists of 
one acre, commanding a most delightful view of the village, the 
lake and surrounding scenery. The building now being erected 
is four stories, the baocment story of stone and the three upper 
stories of brick. 



224 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

•' Rev. Barber, who is to preside over the institution, having 
conceived a noble enterprise, has moved steadily forward in its 
execution. To him we are mainly indebted for the location of 
the Seminary in our midst and to his energy and perseverence, 
with the Divine blessing, we look to see the project carried into 
successful operation. Mr. Barber is particulary qualified for the 
duties incumbent on an instructor ot the young. He is mild, gen- 
tle, firm, unwavering and persevering — of a liberal and conciliatory 
spirit and is possessed in a high degree of that equanimity of 
temper essential to the successful government of the school 
room." 

He had associated with him Miss Elizabeth Brewster Hinckley 
and Sarah J. Hinckley, sisters-in-law. 

This Seminary is now a part ot the building where W. H. 
Wood is principal (1907.) 

The following is a notice of his lectures taken from a paper of 
date 1855. 

Evening Scientific Lecture. 

" The Rev. E. Barber will give a lecture on geology at the 
Academy on Monday eve the 13th inst., commencing at half-past 
seven. We insert the above notice with a great deal of pleasure 
The lecturer is well known to the community and none will ques- 
tion his ability to treat the subject of geology in an interesting 
manner. " 

Extract from another clipping telling how the lecture was re- 
ceived : 

" It was throughout very instructive and interesting, being re- 
plete with beautiful and original ideas, and we believe gave full 
.satisfaction to all in attendance. Rev. Barber will deliver a lect- 
ure on Astronomy at the Academy on Monday evening next. " 

He was also proprietor and principal of Oakwood, a boarding 
school for boys, located in Union Springs. It was limited to 40 
pupils. 

He wrote both prose and poetry for publication, and was also 
a great advocate of temperance, lecturing on the subject and 
writing an " Ode to Temperance," which was published from 
Springport, N. Y., in 1842. The following is one of his poems 
in lighter vein published in the " Religious Recorder: " 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 225 

SUNNY SIDE. 

There's many a sunny spot. 
Amid the wood and dell and grot ; 
Where life is only love; 
There's many a pleasant gale 
Filling the wide expanded sail. 
Descending from above. 

There's many a pebbly rill, 

Soft gliding from ihe grassy hill, 

To cool the fevered brow ; 

There's many a leafy bower, 

Kindly to shield the sun's dread power 

And freshness to bestow. 

There's many a gladsome way 
Through which life's travelers stray, 
Nor pain nor ill betides: 
There's many a fragrant flower 
Sweetly to cheer the irksome hour, 
As on its course it glides. 

There's many a quiet home, 

Where nought but love and peace ere come. 

The hallowed spots of earth ; 

There's many a precious sigh 

Borne calmly to the upper sky 

And sweeter far than mirth." 

Most of his poems were of a deeply religious tone. The fol- 
lowing is a hymn written by him : 

"Another Sabbath day has gone 
Borne swiftly to the world unknown 
As sped its hours, an angel pen 
Recorded all the acts of men. 

Each thought and word and deed of mine 
Are traced upon the page Divine; 
Not ere will time's corroding power 
Blot out the words recorded there. 

How blest to humble souls the day, 
That's now forever fled away; 
Its holy hours have borne on high 
The secret prayer, the heartfelt sigh. 

Sweet Sabbath of our heavenly home. 
Whose evening hour will never come 
We wait to greet thy sacred rest 
And chant the anthems of the blest." 



226 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

He also wrote a morning hymn, one on Christian resignation, 
an article on the simplicity of Christian organization. 

In 1875 he gave up active work and spent his remaining days 
with his only son, Charles Augustus Barber of Marysville, 
Kansas, where he died May 19, 1888. He was buried in Marys- 
ville.

The following is quoted and condensed from a very interesting 
biographical sketch written by Mr. Barber for his children : 

" I was prepared for college at the age of 14, but my parents 
thought I was too young to enter and so kept me at school until 
I was 16. I therefore read an unusual amount of Latin lor a boy 
preparing to enter college, having read the entire yEneid, the 
first ten books cf it twice, and the first six books at least four 
times. " 

" In 1852 I entered Hiram College, from which I graduated in 
1856, after which my father sent me to a Commercial College in 
Cincinnati. " 

About the year 1860, Mr. Barber removed to a farm near Pax- 
ton, 111. Here for some years he engaged in the hard struggles 
of a pioneer life, but following his mother's teaching and example, 
he was active in organizing and maintaining Sunday Schools, and 
assisting, so far as possible, in the advancement of the commun- 
ity in the better things of life. 

In the winter of 1862 he taught a country school and he relates 
in his sketch, how an old lady, 80 years old, grandmother of one 








Levi Allen Barber.

THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 297 

of his pupils, learned to read, and read the New Testament 
through the following year. He also gives an interesting account 
of his work in preparing one of his pupils for college, the boy 
taking private lessons of Mr. Barber for two years. When he 
entered college, the young man ranked second in a class of over 
100 students, the first place being held by a son of Bishop 
Thompson. 

In the summer of 1866, Mr. Barber removed hisfamily to Sagi- 
naw, Mich., and of his later experiences, he wrote as follows : 

" That fall I bought a little piece of timber and began logging. 
The following spring I bought a quarter interest in a saw mill, 
which was burned the night of the Chicago fire, Oct. 9, 1871, 
with but little insurance, and that of little value. 

"We lost about $80,000 that night by the fire, and my share of 
the loss included the purchase of the mill that was burned, 
which purchase was made in the year 1866, at the then current 
rate of 10% annual interest. You will remember that in 1866, 
gold was worth about $2, and before I got my interest paid up 
(I was the only one who was required to pay) in full, my interest 
in the original purchase price of $33,000, was paid at the rate of 
over $102,000 for the whole $33,000, and it was paid to the last 
cent, and I am glad to say that I have never compromised any in- 
debtedness in that way, but have always paid one hundred cents 
on the dollar. 

"About one month after the mill burned, Mr. O. D. Chapin and 
myself bought the Webster mill at Bay City. We had been 
pretty thoroughly cleaned out by the fire, but our credit was 
good. George Burrows said, "buy that mill and draw on me for 
$10,000 cash payment and pay me when you can. " We availed 
ourselves of his generous offer and had the mill all paid for, in- 
cluding the borrowed money, before, according to the terms of 
the purchase, it was due. 

" Mr. Chapin and I operated that mill for about eight years, 
when Mr. Chapin died. I contmued it for two years longer, 
wound up the affairs of the firm, sold the mill, divided up the 
proceeds and came to Duluth in the year 1881." 

Mr. Barber remained in Duluth until his death, which occurred 
in July, 1903.

Dr. Timothy L. Barber was born near Plymouth, Ind. He 
lived with his parents until 1871, when he went to Marietta, 
Ohio to live with his kinsman, David Barber. He was graduated 
from Marietta College in 1877 and from the Medical Dept. of 
the University of Penn. in 1882. 

Directly after his first marriage, he settled in Charleston, 
W. Va., where he soon became prominent in his profession. 

The following sketch of Dr. Barber, appears in the volume 
"Prominent Men of West Virginia:" 

" Timothy Lawrence Barber is a prominent physician and sur- 
geon of Charleston, W. Va. He is the son of Daniel and Ann 
(Hulverson) Barber. 

" The grandfather of Dr. Barber was Timothy Barber who set- 
tled at Syracuse, N. Y., when it was but a cross roads. Later, he 
moved to the West with his family and settled on land where 
Chicago now stands, but finding it a marshy and unpromising 
field for farming, he went to the northern part of Indiana and 
settled in Marshall Co. where he remained some years and 
where his children continued to live. He went back to New 
York state, and not long after lost his life in an accident. 

"Daniel Barber, the father of Dr. Barber, grew to manhood in 
Marshall Co., Ind., and owned a moderate estate. He married a 
daughter of one of the sturdy Norwegian families that settled in 
that county, and reared a family of six children, of whom Levi 



300 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

died young. Business misfortunes deprived him of all his be 
longings in Indiana and he removed to Dodge Co., Wis., living 
at Mayville, Horieon and Beaver Dam (1864-67). Besides being 
a farmer in Indiana, he ran a flouring mill, which business he 
followed in his Wisconsin homes. From Wisconsin he went to 
Petroleum Center, Penn., to join his brother Levi, who was en- 
gaged in refining oil. After a couple of years stay there a dis- 
astrous oil fire destro} ed the plant and killed his brother Levi. 
He then went back to Plymouth, Ind., where he died about 1875. 

" The only schooling Dr. Barber had was that afforded in the 
public schools of the various localities where he lived, until 
through a relative in Marietta, Ohio, he was privileged to receive 
a college education, graduating at Marietta College in 1877. 
For the next two or three years he taught school and tutored 
boys for college, using his spare time in the study of medicine. 
By dint of perseverance and good fortune he gained a scholar- 
ship at the University of Pennsylvania, which gave him all the 
advantages of this foremost school of America, with no cost but 
his living expenses. He graduated there in 1882. 

" He settled in Charleston, W. Va., where he has risen to be 
one of the foremost physicians. He has been conspicuously 
identified with the professional organizations of the city, county 
and state. He has been president of the city and county boards 
of health and a member of the State Board of Health. He was 
an organizer and president of the State Medical Association. 
He has established a Sanatorium for the private treatment of 
diseases with electricity. X-rays, massage and baths, having 
made a specialty of PIlectro-Therapeutics. He is an elder in the 
Kanawha Presbyterian church, a Sabbath-school worker, a mem- 
ber of Masonic organizations. In politics an adherent of the 
Republican party and yet he regards the character of the local 
government as above any party that may aspire to run it."

Like many of his ancestors, Mr. White is a typical self-made 
man. Left fatherless at the age of five years and the only child 
of a widowed mother, it was but natural that he should early feel 
life's responsibilities. 

After receiving such education as the common school at his 
home afforded, he took a course at the Jamestown Academy, and 
for three years engaged in teaching school in the winter and 
working on the farm in the summer. But from his ancestors in 
the White family, he had inherited an inclination toward the lum- 
ber business, and in 1868-9, in partnership with two brothers by 
the name of Jenner, he purchased a tract of 200 acres of pine 
timber near Youngsville, Penn. The young men boarded them- 
selves in the woods, cut the logs and had them sawed at a neigh- 
boring saw-mill. In 1870, Mr. White bought out the interest of 
the brothers Jenner and soon afterward, associated with R. A. 
Kinnear of Youngsville, he opened a lumber yard in Brady and 
later, one in Petrolia, both in Penn. 



324 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

In 1874, they sold these kimber yards and Mr. White removed 
to Tidioute, Penn., where he bought the Arcade mill, and also 
opened a lumber yard in Scrubgrass, Penn. 

While living in East Brady, Pa., he assisted in establishing the 
"Warren County News," in Youngsville, Pa., an independent 
weekly paper, which was later removed to Tidioute and of which 
he afterward became sole owner and proprietor, and edited the 
paper in addition to managing his lumber business, a great deal 
of his editorial work being done at night after the other business 
of the day was over. Later he sold the paper, and the name was 
changed to the "Tidioute News." 

In 1878, Mr. White returned to Youngsville, and bought a 
stave, heading and shingle mill. In 1878 he was elected to the 
Legislature of Penn. 

In 1880, at the expiration of his term of office, associated with 
Messrs. E. B. and J. L. Grandin, Capt. H. H. Cumings, and the 
late Jahu L. and Livingston L. Hunter, (father and son) all of 
Tidioute, Penn., he became one of the organizers of the Missouri 
Lumber and Mining Co. 

This Company was one of the pioneer companies in the devel- 
opment of the yellow pine lumber industry. For more than 20 
years, its mills and offices were located in Grandin, Mo., the town 
itself being the product of the lumber company's business. From 
the date of its organization, Mr. White was Gen. Manager of this 
company, and some years later, was elected President, which 
office he still holds. 

He was the organizer and first President of the Missouri & 
Ark. Lumber Association, which was the first organization of 
Yellow Pine Lumber dealers, and which was later merged into 
the Southern Lumber Manufacturer's Assn., of which Mr. White 
was twice elected President. 

In 1899, associated with Mr. Oliver W. Fisher and others, he 
organized the Louisiana Long Leaf Lumber Co., with mills and 
headquarters in Fisher, Louisiana. He has been Secretary and 
a Director of this Company since its organization, In 1901, he 
organized the Louisiana Central Lumber Company, with mills 
and offices in Clarks and Standard, Louisiana. Of this Company 
he is President. He is also President of the Forest Lumber 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 32S 

Company, which owns a line of retail yards. He is also General 
Manager of the Missouri Lumber & Land Exchange, with offices 
at No. 1111 Long Building, Kansas City, Mo. 

In the fall of 1908, President Roosevelt appointed Mr White a 
member of the National Commission of the Conservation of 
National Resources. This Commission met in Washington, 
D. C, early in the year 1909. 

Gov. Hadley of Missouri, also appointed him as delegate to the 
First National Congress for the Conservation of National Re- 
sources, which convened in Seattle, Washington, in August 
1909. 

The greatest factors in Mr. White's success have been a sound 
judgment and an untiring energy, (frequent heritages in the Bar- 
ber family,) an extreme resourcefulness and last, but by no means 
least, a faculty for developing to the fullest extent the capabili- 
ties of his employes. 

In the midst of his busy life, he has kept alive an interest in 
educational, philanthropic and religious matters. 

For many years he has been much interested in genealogical 
and historical research, and has collected a valuable library along 
these lines, and has assisted financially and otherwise in the pub- 
lishing of a very extended Genealogy of the White family, com- 
piled by Miss Almira L. W'hite of Haverhill, Mass. 

Mr. White's lineage through the White family, is as follows : 

Robert White, Sr., who with wife Alice was living in South 
Petherton, Eng., in July 1574. She was 
buried Aug. 22, 1596., He was buried as 
Robt. White, Senior, Sept. 7, 1600. He was 
a Church Warden in 1578. 

Robert White, Jr., of South Petherton ; was Church Warden 
in 1601; buried March 8, 1641-2; his wife, 
Joan, was buried Sept. 13, 1631. 



The data for the above sketch was obtained from the biography of Mr. White 
published in " The History of the Lumber Industry " and also from the Edi- 
tor's personal knowledge of his career.— Editor.

Mrs. White's father, Benjamin B. Siggins, was descended 
from the Scotch-Irish families of Siggins and Kinnear. 

The earliest ancestor of the Kinnear family of whom definite 
record has been obtained was James Kinnear who with his wife 
and some of his relatives emigrated from Scotland to Ireland, 
settling in Londonderry. 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 



327 



During the Revolution of 1688, the city of Londonderry was 
surrounded by the enemy and the imprisoned inhabitants suf- 
fered for want of provisions. James Kinnear and his wife 
escaped from the city by different routes and to different places. 
For seven years they were separated, neither knowing the 
whereabouts of the other. At the end of this time, it is related 
that " they happened to meet and were overwhelmed with joy." 
Many of their descendants emigrated to America. 

A synopsis of Mrs. White's Kinnear-Siggins lineage is as 
follows :

328 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

Mrs. White's great-grindfather, John Siggins, came to 
America in 1793. He d. near Centre Turner, Pa., in April, 
1801. His widow subsequently removed with her family to 
Youngsville, Pa., where she d. in 1835 at the age of 85. She is 
said to have been a sister of Admiral Hood. That she was pos- 
sessed of great courage and fortitude is evidenced by the manner 
in which she bore the struggles and privations of frontier life 
and cared for her fatherless family. She was a devout follower 
of John Wesley whom it is said "she revered as a saint." 

On her mother's side, Mrs. White is descended from John 
Walker of Wigton, Scotland, who, in 1702, married Katherine 
Rutherford and later emigrated to America. Katherine Ruther- 
ford was a descendant of the Scottish families of Rutherford and 
Alleine, to which belonged the celebrated divines, Samuel Ruth- 
erford and Joseph Alleine. 

John Walker and his wife Katherine settled in Chester Co., 
Pa., but their son Alexander and other members of the family 
removed to Rockbridge Co., Va., and among their descendants 
are many prominent families of Virginia and Kentucky. 

Mrs. White's great-grandmother, Elizabeth (Scott) Walker, 
was the daughter of Samuel Scott, who was a Revolutionary 
soldier, enlisted at the age of 14 in the Washingtan Co. (Vir- 
ginia) militia and participated in the Battle of King's Mountain. 

Mrs. White has compiled and published (1902) an extended 
and very interesting genealogical history of the Walker and 
allied families. 

Mr. and Mrs. White and family are members of the Congrega- 
tional Church.

THE BARBER GENEALOGV. 329 

3338. V. Raymond Baird White, b. Grandin, Carter Co., 
Mo., March 18, 1889; was graduated from 
the Kansas City High School in June 1909, 
and in Sept. of the same year entered the 
University of Wisconsin in Madison. 

Dr. John Franklin White, eldest son of the above family, was 
graduated from the Kansas City High School in the Class of 
1894. In the fall of 1895 he entered the University Medical Col- 
lege of Kansas City, where he did two years of excellent work, 
after which he entered the Missouri Medical College at St. Louis, 
Mo., (now the Medical Dept. of Washington University,) from 
which he was graduated in 1898. The following summer he 
spent in Philadelphia, making a special study of the eye. In the 
fall of 1898 he was employed as a member of the medical staff of 
the Hospital Dept. connected with the Missouri Lumber & Min- 
ing Co., in Grandin, Mo. 

In the fall of 1899, he assumed charge of the Dispensary and 
Hospital Dept., connected with the Louisiana Long Leaf Lum- 
ber Co., in Fisher, La., and was also local surgeon for the Kan- 
sas City Southern R. R. While there, on May 9, 1900, he re- 
ceived an accidental gunshot wound, from the effects of which he 
died in Kansas City on June II, 1900. He was buried beside 
his mother in the family burying ground in Youngsville, Penn. 

Dr. White was one of those men in whose early death the 
world loses much, and yet whose short life was lived so fully 
that the world gained much from it. 

Possessed of rare judgment and a stern, unswerving loyalty to 
truth and right, he yet had an unfailing tenderness and sympathy 
for suffering and weakness. Particularly was this trait exhibited 
toward the little children of the laborers, among whom, for the 
most part, it was his duty to minister, and it won for him such 
measure of affection as falls to the lot of few men in his profes- 
sion, even during long years of practice. 

On the day of his burial this feeling was most touchingly ex- 
hibited in the communities in which "Dr. Frank" had lived and 
labored, and particularly in one of them which had been most 
closely associated with his boyhood days and with his professional 
career, and where the usual expressions of mourning were of 
more than ordinary significance. But more eloquent than the

closed places of business, the draped doorways, the silent mills or 
the flag at half-mast, were the closed and silent homes of the 
laborers, and the absolutely deserted streets, where not even a 
child played. No one had suggested it, perhaps no one thought 
of it. It was the spontaneous and voluntary tribute of love to 
the brave, clean, cheery young life which had gone out from 
among them. Like Drumtochty when Geordie Howe was 
stricken, there was but one heart in the little valley of the 
Ozarks that day, and "it was sair." 

Dr. White's father has erected to his memory, a High School 
Building in the village of Youngsville, Penn. In this building is 
a beautiful memorial window, the design of which is an arch rep- 
resenting "Character," supported by four massive pillars, " Hon- 
esty, Purity, Courage, Love," which were the basic principles of 
Dr. White's own life.

By this branch of the family, the name has always been spelled 
" Barbour." 

Mr. George H. Barbour, the father of Edwin S. Barber, has 
been for more than 35 years a prominent citizen of Detroit, Mich. 

The following sketch of his life was obtained too late to be in- 
serted under his own number (2057) in the 7th generation. 

"George Harrison Barbour was b. in Collinsville, Conn., June 
26, 1843. 

"At an early age Mr. Barbour found it necessary to lend his 
assistance to the business affairs of his father, and during the 
period when most youngsters of his age were actively engaged in 
the pursuit of education and pleasure, he devoted himself to pro- 
curing such education as the facilities at hand afforded, and to 
business. 

"In 1871, when The Michigan Stove Company was organized, 
and the office of Secretary was tendered to him. Mr. Barbour 
promptly accepted the offer, disposed of his interests in the Col- 
linsville business, and removed to Detroit, where he has since re- 
sided. 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 359 

"Much of the success of The Michigan Stove Company is due 
to his indefatigable efforts and aggressive methods. This com- 
pany has for many years been recognized as the largest and most 
progressive of its kind in the world. 

" Mr. Barbour has become associated in the interim with many 
prominent commercial and banking organizations, and possesses 
the reputation of being most conservative and acute in all matters 
relating to these branches. He possesses the rare faculty of 
being enabled to separate the "chaff" from the "wheat," and of 
connecting himself only with meritorious and successful enter- 
prises. As a banker he is widely and favorably known, and has 
been conspicuously successful ; is the Old School so-called 
"Cleveland Democrat," — believes in protection and sound money 
and conservatism in all matters pertaining to national govern- 
ment. He has not, however, been an active politician, nor a 
candidate for any office, except once, when during his absence 
from home, he was nominated, and subsequently elected, on the 
Democratic ticket, a member of the Board of Aldermen from the 
Fourth Ward, which normally carried a Republican majority of 
175. He was made President of the Board the second year after 
his election. 

"He has frequently been urged to accept the nomination of his 
party for the office of Mayor of Detroit, but has had so many far- 
reaching and exacting commercial responsibilities in charge that 
he did not feel that he could, in justice to himself and his asso- 
ciates, devote the necessary time to the office that a thorough 
and conscientions administration of its duties demands. 

His name has also been mentioned at frequent intervals in con- 
nection with the Democratic nomination for Congress from the 
First District of Michigan, but for similar reasons he has stead- 
fastly refused to authorize its employment in such a connection. 

Mr. Barbour was very active in organizing the Detroit Exposi- 
tion, which in its day was most successful and a great credit to 
the city and its promoters. He was the first President of the 
Detroit Board of Commerce, and has, iii fact, been more or less 
prominent and active in the organization and upbuilding of the 
business and commercial interests of the city. He was the 
first President of the Michigan Manufacturers' Association, and 
has always been active in the affairs of the National Association 
of Manufacturers, of which he was in 1902 Chairman of the 



360 THE BARBER GENEALOGY 

Legislative Committee, in which latter capacity he appeared sev- 
eral times before various Committees of the United States Sen- 
ate in connection with pending legislation pertaining to the regu- 
lation of manufacturers, and more especially in connection with 
the consideration of a measure then pending in reference to mak- 
ing eight hours a legal days work for labor. 

" Mr. Barbour was a member of the National Commission of the 
World's Fair held in Chicago in 1893. and was President of the 
Michigan Commission to the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo 
in 1901. In the latter capacity he enjoyed the unique distinction 
of returning to the State Treasury, after the Exposition was over 
and all expenses of the Commission paid, a sum something in 
excess of ten thousand dollars of the original appropriation of 
fifty thousand dollars. It was admitted at the time to be a pro- 
cedure entirely without precedent. 

"Mr. Barbour is at present 1st Vice President and General 
Manager of The Michigan Stove Company, President of the 
Ireland & Matthews Mfg. Co., of Detroit, Director of the Peoples 
State Bank, Vice President and Director of the Dime Savings 
Bank, and Director of the Michigan Fire & Marine Insurance 
Company. 

" In 1906, Mr. Barbour with others, organized The Michigan 
Copper & Brass Company, of which corporation he is the Presi- 
dent. This new enterprise was successful from the first, and is 
to-day one of the foremost of the newer manufacturing enter- 
prises of Detroit."

church yesterday moniing. He gave a discourse that surprised 
even the members of his own family. Mr. Barber took as his 
subject, "St. Paul," from Timothy, fourth chapter, sixth verse, 
pertaining to the crown of hfe on the work of the apostle. He 
preached for forty minutes, and his eloquence was the source of 
wonderment to the congregation. 

The services undoubtedly could not be duplicated in the coun- 
try. Mr. Barber is enjoying good health and is still active in 
business, and expects to preach again next year, when he reaches 
the century mark. 

The Rev. A. D. Angell and the Rev. I. C. Forte assisted dur- 
ing the services, and the Rev. J. E. King closed the service with 
a most profound prayer. The congregation of the Baptist church 
was in attendance. 

No record has been received of Mr. Barber's children.

Genealogy of the 

DESCEJiDAKTS OF JOHH BARBER 

OF WORCESTER, MASS.

COMPILED BY 



Edmund Dana Barbour. 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 405 



INTRODUCTION 



The Compiler of this work was led by tradition and the similar- 
ity of Christian names to believe that John Barber of Worcester 
was a descendant of Captain George Barbour of Dedham and 
Medfield, and perhaps son of Deacon John Barbour and his wife 
Mary (Ellis) Partridge. Over a thousand letters were written to 
the descendants of John of Worcester, but not one of those 
written to confirmed or contradicted the belief, or could tell the 
family name of his wife Lydia. After a search of four years the 
Compiler found the marriage of John Barber to Lydia Stimpson 
in Boston, Oct. 7, 1736, and he now believes that John was born 
in Boston, June 30, 1714, son of Thomas and Elizabeth Barber 
(Barbour). The ancestry of Thomas has not been traced, but 
could probably be found by a diligent search of early Boston 
records. Thomas and Elizabeth had the following children and 
perhaps others :— Thomas, born July 12, 1704; Ruth, born Feb. 
15, 1705; Thomas, born Oct. 7, 1709; Hannah, born Aug. 31, 
1712 ; and John, born June 30, 1714. 

There is some reason for believing that Thomas was son of 
Thomas and Mary Barbour of Boston, who are known to have 
had the following children : — Ruth, born Feb. 4, 1679; John» 
born Feb. 14, 1680; Mary, born Feb. 25, 1682; Joseph, born 
July 3, 1686; and Elizabeth, born Oct. 8, 1688.

EDITOR'S PREFACE 



The Genealogy of the Descendants of John Barber of Worces- 
ter, Mass., as here presented, is pubHshed from the manuscript 
prepared by Mr. Edmund D. Barbour of Boston, the Editor hav- 
ing inserted only a few additional records and biographical 
sketches, and made some slight revisions. 

The plan of the genealogy differs from that used in Section I. 
of this volume, but as it is clear and easily followed, and as Mr. 
Barbour had indexed his manuscript before delivering it to the 
publisher, it was not thought advisable to make any changes in 
its arrangement.

The Boston Transcript of Sept. 23, 1908 contained the follow- 
ing sketch of Albert M. Bullard, the younger son of the above 
family. 

"Albert M. Bullard, who died last Saturday at the Loomis San- 
atorium in the Catskills, was connected, as electrical engineer, 
with many important innovations in telephony during the last 
fifteen years. It was at the Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology that his technical training was secured, but his originality 
of mind had already attracted the attention of his high school in- 
structors. 

"Entering the service of the Thompson-Houston Company at 
Lynn, his cleverness in invention speedily brought Mr. Bullard 
into personal relationship with Professor Elihu Thomson, and he 
was given the task of developing the art of electric welding, on 
lines laid out by Professor Thomson. In various cities in this 
country, and for a year in Europe, he was engineer for the Elec- 
tric Welding Company. In this work, as elsewhere, his genius 
in devising prompt, practical, and efficient methods showed itself. 

"Associating himself with the Chicago Telephone Company in 
1896, he soon found opportunity to do congenial work on electri- 
cal and mechanical problems, some of which were of far-reaching 
importance. The records of this activity are in the Patent 
Office at Washington, and hence unknown to the general public. 
Among his inventions, the " return-coin " device, now in general 
use throughout the United States, is perhaps the best known. 
But his more important contribution to the art were made since 
1900, while in the service of the American Bell Company in Bos- 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 601 

ton and of the Western Electric Company in New York. At the 
time of his death, Mr. Bollard was associated with other leading 
engineers in the solution of one of the most complicated prob- 
lems of modern telephony, a problem on which he had specialized 
for three or four years. 

"Mr. Bullard leaves a widow, Marian Rootc Bullard, whom he 
married at Middletown, N. Y., in 1904. His parents. Mr. and 
Mrs. Gardner W. Bullard, and a sister, Mrs. Leo. R. Lewis, live 
at Tufts College, Medford. Tlie composer, Frederic Field Bul- 
lard, who died suddenly in 1904, was an elder brother."

Theodore Vail Bullard, b. 1898. 

Frederic Field Bullard was graduated from the Boston Latin 
School in 1883 and took the entrance examinations for Harvard, 
but at his father's request decided to enter the Boston Tech. in- 
stead. Here he spent two years as a special student of chemistry. 
After leaving College he was employed for two or three years as 
chemist in tuo different dye works. 

He had, however, a natural taste for music and even while in 
the Latin School he had composed waltzes and other musical 
numbers. 

In 1888 he gave up his work as chemist and went to Munich to 
continue his musical studies. Here he was one of the six pupils 
of Reinberger, the organ-master. 

The following extracts are taken from two articles which ap- 
peared in the Technology Review soon after Mr. Bullard's death- 
These were, "Bullard, the Man" and "Bullard, the Musician." 
Both were written by men v^ho knew him well and loved him. 



604 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

"Frederic Field Bullard was born in Boston, Sept. 2\, 1864, 
and died at the age of thirty-nine. While an infant, probably 
through the negligence of a nurse he met with an accident which 
resulted in a disease of the spine. This was rapidly developing a 
marked curvature when it was arrested, happily, by a fall ; for, 
breaking a ligament in his back, the spine buttressed so as to pre- 
vent a greater deformity. He was forced to wear throughout his 

childhood, nevertheless, a leather corset Although 

he did not suffer, except at rare intervals, from his spine, he was 
the continual victim of over-exhaustion incurred by the never- 
ending struggle at his desk. A large part of his work consisted 
in the editing of songs and song-books, and in this he held the 
first rank. As a teacher of harmony and counterpoint and as a 
critic, he could easily have occupied a chair of music in anv col- 
lege." 

" Fred Bullard was a genius. I choose the word with care, 
setting him above men of talent. I dare not say " a great genius," 
because he worked generally in the smaller forms, and because a 
final estimate of the two large works left among his manuscripts 
is not possible until the compositions have had adequate perfor- 
mance. But I am confident that the concert-giver of the year 
2000, making up a programme of a score of the best songs written 
by American composers who were at work in 1900, cannot justly 
omit a song by Frederic Held Bullard. Nay, more ! I believe 
that some songs of Bullard will find ultimate place among the 
world's collection of imperishable vocal gems, where Schubert's 
"Who is Sylvia.?" and Schumann's " Ich groUe nicht " are al- 
ready irremovably set, with perhaps a score of others 

Bullard came justly by his love for the highest song. As a child, 
he was listening in his own home to great works studied in repeti- 
tion and re-repetition under the hands of accomplished per- 
formers. Probably no more illuminating general statement as to 
the home atmosphere could be made than to say that Bullard's 
parents were among the earliest Schumann enthusiasts in Boston, 
when Schumann was the daring innovator of the moment. 

"The boy's keen perception of melody became early apparent. 
I remember well his feats of reproduction of songs and chorus 
numbers heard at theatre or concert in the years of my earliest 
acquaintance with him 1880-83. He would pass interesting num- 
bers in review, not with the pariot-like exactitude which one often 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 605 

finds in persons of indifferent musical appreciation, but with a 
power in getting essentials of which I do not remember to have 

found quite the parallel Then came the period of 

struggle for supremacy between his genius and his desire to follow 

practical advice as to the selection of a life work At 

length the compelling genius triumphed as such gifts always 
must; and he sailed for Europe in the summer of 1888, hence- 
forth primarily a musician, but still experiencing as before, spor- 
adic enthusiasms in various other directions 

"I am voicing no fatalistic theory when I say that we must not 
inconsolably grieve that he died, while the sense of his achieve- 
ments make us deeply rejoice that he lived. We now know that 
only a miracle could have restored his nerve strength. It is 
probable that but a few months would have passed before there 
would have come to him that consciousness which is, for the 
creative artist, infinitely worse than death, — the consciousness of 
irretrievably impaired power. 

"I made bold to suggest to Tech. men that the best tribute that 
they can render Bullard is to bear in mind his works. I append 

a list of those which I believe to be among his best A. 

suggestion somewhat like the following may well accompany any 
mention of them to lovers of music. Do not lay them aside until 
you know them well. Then, if you can lay them aside, you may. 

"I mention only such as I regard as sure to find favor with any 
one who can adequately render them, and I italicize those which 
are surest to appeal speedily. A complete li.st would show about 
two hundred items, 

"Songs : The Waterlily ; From Dreams of Thee ; Tke Singer ; 
A Prayer ; The Hermit ; Hymn of Pan ; How Fair thou Art ; 
Beam from Yonder Star; The Indifferent Mariner ; Notting- 
ham Hunt; The Sword of Ferrara ; Swords out for Charlie; 
There's a Woman like a Dew-drop. 

"Anthems : Thete is no Night in Heaven ; Light and Life Im- 
mortal. 

"Part-Song: Comrade Song ; Winter Song ; Come o er the Sea ; 
Up, Sailor Boy, 'tis Day. 

" I omit the ' Stein Song " from the list, not because I would 
put it in second rank, but because it needs no mention. It is our 
first noble American folk-song; that is, the first one worthy to take 
rank with the crystalized racial utterances of the older nations.'' 



606 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

" No man, perhaps, ever more literally worked himself to death. 
No man ever more greatly scorned to spare his fire, no man ever 
shared himself more utterly to his friends. No final, critical esti- 
mate of his published work can matter beside the fact that he did 
his unremitting best ; that, while he could he poured out his whole 
exultant life into melody and harmony. 

"The thoroughbred race-horse will run till he drops dead. Bul- 
lard was a thoroughbred in every quivering, joyous inch of his 
body. He ran his breathless race for everything that was in him ; 
it was not his fault that he never reached the goal he had set for 
himself. His manly heart broke half-way, but he died almost 
with enthusiasm. 

"Like one who dies lustily in battle, his youth has, for us, 
achieved immortality. No vision of a broken, hampered endeavor 
shall ever haunt us. We have Fred Bullard with us forever now, 
young, ardent, impulsive, generous, frank, jubilant. . . . 

"Faults he must have had, for he was human ; but I know of no 
habit that I would dare call by this charming name. Faults he 
must have had, for he made friends— and enemies, too, I hope. 
But I never knew him wilfully to hurt another's feelings ; and 
what can a fault be but this } He would laugh at me, no doubt, 
for he knew his own weakness 

"There is, so often as to make one almost e.xpect it, a compen- 
sation in poverty that ennobles the poor in purse with a richness 
of heart. The rich are seldom truly generous ; it is of those who 
fight the wolf at the door that we say. He would share his last 
crust with a friend-or enemy!" Bullard was of high caste; his 
generosity was a dominant trait. Half his lessons, half his 
strength, were given to young musicians without receiving pay. 

"If F"red Bullard's memorial never exists except in the hearts of 
his friends and college mntes, it will be enough ; but no Tech. 
man, I think, better deserved a more tangible testimony. Be that 
as it may, he has himself woven a thread of song that shall bind 
him to us and to his Alma Mater forever. So raise Fred Bullard 
shoulder high again, fellows, and show him to the world ! And, 
thrilling to the spell of his baton, 

Give a rouse, then, in the Maytime, 
For the heart that knows no fear ! "
