INTRODUCTION 



Nearly 20 years ago, while on a visit to the home of my an- 
cestors in Massachusetts, I became interested in genealogy My 

hrst efforts were directed to the tracing of m line " 

from John White of YVenham, 1639, an extended genealogy oi 
whose descendants has recently been completed by Miss ALnirs 
L. White of Haverhill, Mass. 

While assisting in this work. I became deeply interested in 
the various families from which I am descended through both 
my parents, and found that m some lines, genealogies nac al- 
ready been published. On my mother's side, T found two 
apparently unrelated Barber families. Ihe American icestor a 
one of these was Thomas Barber of Windsor, Conn , (born about 
1614), and the earliest American ancestor ol the ether -amity , 
of whom positive record has been ootained, 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 
Iless 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. 3arbour's 
direct hue of ancestry. Also, the late Mr. Oliver E. Wilson of 

(Norwaik, Coon., bad 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

Through corresponcience with Mr. Edmund D. Barbour of 
Bosion. Mass., I iearned that while collecting records lor a 
genealogy of the descend L nts of George E irber cf Mcdway, he 
had secure'! a large amount of data regarding the descendants 
of John Barber of Worcester, supp; sing at the time, that this 
John Barber was a descendant o: George of Medway. Failing 
to establish this connect: n, however, Mr Barh ui kindly en- 
tered into an arrangement for turning over to me this collection 
of records. 

The original intention was to i blish is ■ irae, not onh

'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, an: 1 it was 
therefore decided to publish them in one volume, and to publish 
a separate Gleason Gem i gy, which has been ..'one. 

The Barber Genealogy is composed of two sections, as follow = : 

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

Section n. 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, with >ut whose careful and 
thorough preparation and distingi ished ability d r this kind of 
work, this volume would not have attained its present propor- 
tions, nor would it so soon have been published..

EDITOR'S PREFACE. 



In compiling the "Genealogy of the Descendants of Thomas 
Barber, of Windsor," the records : the towns in whi it: 
generations of the family settled, have been searched. V here 
these records have not been printed, transcripts have Dec- ob- 
tained from the originals in the offices of the Town Clerks. 

A great deal of material has also been obtained from the 
following authorities : 

Stiles' "'Ancient Windsor/' 

Bend's " VVatertown, Mass., with Genealogies." 

Loomis Family Genealogy, Female Lines. 

Orcutt's " History of Torrington." 

History of Simsbury Etc.. by Abiei Brown. 

History of Xorthneld by Temple. 

Phelps Family Genealogy, by Andrew T. Servin. 

Owing to the numerous marriages between the Barber and 
Phelps families, this last mentioned genealogy in particular, has 
furnished a large amount of data for the present work. 

■ 
Grateful acknowledgement is also made for the kind assistance 
rendered through correspondence, by the following members of 
the family : 

Mr. Floyd X. Barber, Pittsburgh, Pa. 
Miss Julia Barber, Charleston, W. Va. 
Mrs. Fanny Barber Farweli, Orange, Tex. 
Mrs. Minnie Ward, Kellogg. Syracuse, N. V. 
Mrs. Sylvia Barber Rogers, Santa Barbara, Cal. 
Miss Dorliska E. Sheldon, Indianapolis, Ind 
Miss Iduna J. Barber, Torrington. Conn.

Hie records are arranged according to generations, the emi-

his grandchildren the third, and so on. 

All descendants r-re numbered consecutively, the emigrant 
ancestor being No. i, his ii . en b ing numbt ed 2, S, 4- etc. 
Those whose records are • ! led into the su :cec ling genera- 
tion are designated by having the character -4- placed before the 
name and number in ea< a case. 

The task of com] \. _ _ ..- is lingly indefinite 

one, as to magnitude. It ma) be confined within very narrow 
bounds, or it m iv be extended h definitely. 

The sc pe ot due present worh has been limited ro as complete 
an history ■:■ ■-■ ! r - on i of the earl} gs nera.tions of the descendants 
of Thomas Barber, >f Windsor, as could be obtained, together 
with such later records, as ■:■■ aid, at the same time, and without 
delay, be collected. The work of extending a geneaL p, to in- 
clude a very large number or descendants in the present gener- 
ation, is ere requiring the work of years instead of months, 
since ail later information must be secured through corre- 
spondence. 

The aim of the publisher of this volume, has been, therefore, 
not to produce a complete genealogy of the descendant:, of 
Thomas Barber of Windsor, 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 
foster in the many descendants, a true pride of family, a pride 
in clean, right living, a pride in an ancestry which has borne 
well its part, not only in the material development, but also in 
the intellectual and spiritual upbuilding and uplifting of. every 
community where its lot has been cast, an ennobling .undo which 
shall make more worthy, the sons and daughters of mis brave, 
hardy, pioneering race, it shall well have served its purpose.

BAR3ER. 



Thomas Barber of Windsor, Conn., a partial record of whose 
descendants is contained in this volume, was the first of that 
name to emigrate fr n Rn and to Amerii .. Others.] ■ 
soon followed. The rec i~ds of M.edwa> and Dedti m show 
a Richard Barber was located it the latter \ >3S, and 

George and Edward in 1640 and 1644. A James Barber ■ 
Dorchester in 1637. Jen rr\ in ( imbridge in 1641, and loan in 
Salem about the same tana that Th> mas arrived in 'Air.: r 
Numerous others of the name came at later daces 

These early emigrants may or ma) \ * h ve been of the same 
family. Probably they were bat rem »teiy, if at all, relate ; and 
it is also likely that they came from different parts of England 
There is a tradition to the sffei : thai two brothers of Thorn; -■ • i 
Windsor came to America shortly after his arrival here, but no 
proof of this bis yet been loan.! 

No attempt has beer made at tra ing 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 
tor his English ancestry one which would require month.- 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 



-Vofr v 



difference of opinion. All agree, however, 
its original European home, and that it came into England at the 
time of the Norma. 1 Conquest in tee Ilth centurv, ana the claim 
has been made that it came into Norn,. r.d . ir :ctly from Persia. 
The greater number of those who have made a stu ! y' of i; mi'iy 
names, ascribe its derivation to the trade of hah i ting and hair 
dressing. The fashion of elaborate ran dressing anchor fastidi- 



12 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

otis care of the bea ■' v a brought into England by the Normans, 
and so popular did it become at Court, that skillful hair on - rs 
were much sought after. 

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 cf fidelity and high 
standing were chosen tor the j >sition. 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. Am m _ 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 -how to have prevailed until compaiativelv 
recent times. 

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, ciaims 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 
Gailion, 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 cie Barl is, 
tenant in the Domesday book; St. Barbe on the Roil of Battel 
Abbey ; William de St. Barbara, Bishop of Durham, A.D., ! 143 ; 
Le Barbier, Court 01 H listing, London, 12SS." 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 ail 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. 

There arc 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 ot Thomas 
the Emigrant. A reierence to the name in Nichols' " Bedford-

1RST GENERATION 



5. THOMAS BARBER, whose name appears in the early 
Colonial Records of Windsor, Conn, was born probably in the 
County of Bedfor l.shnre, England, about 1614. 

He came to Windsor in 1635 with the part] fitted out by Sir 
Richard Saltonstall, under Francis Stiles, a master carpenter of 
London. He was then 21 years of age, md was the rirst of the 
Sarber name in Mew England. 

The following is a cop) i portion ot the [ <yr^o^ Passenger 
Register for the shin " Christian" in which the Saltonstall party 
sailed for America.

The ancient Jewish year which opened with the 25th of March 
continued long to have a legal position in Christian countries. 
hn England, it was not until 1 7 52 that the 1st of January became 
the initial clay 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 I6JS Thomas Barber 
was granted -a lot ten rods -est oi Humphrey Hyde's Mill 
-' ' •'., S acres ana 22 rods wide, bounded ^y:X~\ by Mill Brook, 
extending as stated 2 rods Wide, to accommodate Barber and 
Alvord, and also a way for Mr. Wareham, Minister, to go to his 
• t north oi Barber's and Alvord s ana ended in the V quonnock 
Road." 



16 THE B A REEF GEN'EALOGV. 

It is evident rem th< records, that Francis Sci.Ies tailed to 
; nil his i i with Thoi ;- and the oth :r 

of his parry, for on Mch. 28, \h + 7 the following order was made 
by the Court or 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 tneir services for their tern:, 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, m 
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 whh ail expedition, cave fire thro' 
the Paliisade upon them: the Indians being in a dead, indeed 
their last sleep. Then we wheeled off and fell upon the mam 
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 wdth him about 
16 men. We had formerly concluded to destroy them by the 
sword and save the plunder. 

Whereupon, Cap:. Mason, seeing no Indians, entered a wig- 
wam, where he was beset with many Indians waiting 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 recovering" himself, the 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 17 

Indians some Red, others crept under their beds. The Captain 
going out of the wigwam saw many Indians in the lane or street; 
he making r hem they tied, ,vere pursued to the end of 

the lane, where they were met by Edward Pat.tison, Thomas 
Barber, with some others, where seven of them were slain." 

This occurred probably in June 1637. 

While returning from this memorable hght Thomas Barber en- 
gaged with Lieut. Cook in t kscussion on religious and church 
matters, and becoming incensed at some remark made by the lat- 
ter, struck him, tor which offense the Court adjudged that he 
should forfeit his military rank, and pay a hue of rive poun Is. 

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. 1651. 

" 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 gran: it (to him; upon this condition ; that he 
come and inhabit and make im provenience of it wdthin a yere, 
after the date of — " 

This proposition from the town of Northampton, seems not to 
have been considered, as Thomas died the folio wing" 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, tearless 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.

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 



SECOND GENERATION. 

2. JOHN BARBER, 2 (Thomas 1 ) bp. July 24, 1642. He m. 1st 
in Springfield Conn., Sept. 2, 1665, Bathsheba Coggin, (some- 
times gb :n C ggen or Cousens) who d in 16SS ; he in. 2nd May 
1, 1689, Hannah, widow of Thomas Brancroft, and probabh I; 
of Samuel Gardner, of Hadley. 

The records seem to indicate that as a very young man, he 
spent some rime in SpringSel I and was married 'here, but settled 
first in Windsor. In 1664- his father's piace in Windsor was 
made over to him, but in 1671, he rransferred 
Samuel, and removed to Springfield. Burt's I 
field states that he had two children born prior 
that place. His other children were born it. 
same authority states that he served for eight •. 
selectmen of Springfield, and he is referred 
records, as Deacon John Barber. 

In 1684 he removed from Springfield to 
according to some records, he was a deacon and 
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 descenued 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 nave been John (son of Thomas, of Winds t) and 
his son John, as the latter would nave been hue nine years oid on 
thai dare. 

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 or June 1736, and as the mor-

;ords seem to r : ;, a' positive evidence that John, 8 John, 3 
is, of V ... ij Li-s to confirm the 

theor) that there were other families in Springfield descended 
fr mi 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, or Winds* r) 
and of his family, are ill 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 mere successful. 

Dea : Barber die! Jan. 17, 1712. His will vas proven 

in February >f the same year, and it is stated that the surname 
very sooa thereafter disappears from the records if Surneld. 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.

dau. of William Phelps, Sr., known as " Ould Mr. Phelps/' and 
his second wife, Mary (Dover) Phelps. 

The old Windsor records show that in 1664, Thomas Barber 2 
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 Fail

< >ther 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 
frlassaco, under an order ot the General Court, of Hartford, of 
December. 1666, which stipulated that "within two years the

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

In 1669 Massaco was sen oft 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 167! , 
and began improving the lands at that place which they had 
inherited from their father Thomas. 1 

Thomas Barber 2 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 finalh 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 £438 18s .3d.

The name of the husband of Sarah Barber, third child in the

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 1536 removed to Windsor, Conn. He ap-

The dates of birth of the children of this family, as given bv 
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 Feb. 21, 1708-9, it will 
be observed that he makes provision for his son John when 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 31 years old at the 
time the father's will was written, whereas it is evident from that 
document that he was the youngest son. Further, 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, bom in 1598, would have been 21 years younger 
than he; all of which is, to be -are. 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 BARBEi; GENEALOGY. 

From all ion seei 

there was an older sc^\ John, he young' ; 

the confusi n regarding the date o,l bis birth, it is not iraprooabje 
that he was the son of the first wife. At all events, t e - »n 
John who was lr ing the time of the father's -i-ji^i-i was a 
younger child, and in all es the youngest s i, born 

presumably about 1694. 

The dates given above as the lates )f birth of Elizabeth and 
Sarah are undi orrect, as in his vili, their father Sam- 

uel provides that tb d their sister Mi I well shall he paid 

,£25 each when tl ; sh : ' - I t re, : i ist 

have been under 18 years of age when the father's will was ■ 
and hence bom after 1690. 

Stiles' "Ancient Windsor" jives Sept. 25, 1704, is the date of 
birth of the daughter Mar}', 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 A] 
dix of the volume mentioned, Dr. Stiles calls attention : i this 
discrepency. It -vill u _- seen. ■ /nee to the wills heretofore 

mentioned that there .s ghter Mary t j to 

family; that she wms married prior to the making >f 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 oi the ol :r children. 

In Samuel Barber's will he makes unconditional beq tests 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.

D GENERATION. 



9. JOHN BARBER, 8 (John/ 2 Thomas, 1 ) b. July 14, 1669; m. 
Joanna Miller, dau. I >badiah, Sr. and Joanna Miller, of W. 
Springfield, who was b. July 5, 1659. 

The.vagueness o1 the records as noted, with 

reference to John Barber, 2 are still more apparent in the third 
generation. 

All records seem to agree that Joanna was the name of the 
wife of John Barber. 8 ana Burt s History of Springfield gives 
her name and date of birth as above. 

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

54. i. Hannah, b. May 27. 1632. 
5,5. ii. Mary, b Feb. 3, 1633. 
36. in. John, b. Feb. 19, 1637. 
57. iv. Joseph, b. Feb. 13, 1639. 

It has been assumed by some historians that these are the 
children of John ana Joanna, but since John Barber was b. in 
1669, the hrst two children mentioned above were scarcely 13 
and 14 years younger than he. and h^ is less than 13 years older 
than the third child. He may have be-n 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.

Mr. Fred Carlisle's little book entitled "Genealogy of George

"Rev. Eldad Barber, the son of Eldad, 4 Benjamin, 8 Samuel, 2 
Thomas, 1 b. in East Windsor in 1 S : > 1 , and who d. in Florence, 
Ohio, in 1870, at one time ministered in the North Third of 
Scantie Church. Deacon Oliver, Simeon, Capt. Noah, Jonathan 
and Ashbel, who marched to the relief of Boston in 1775, were 
also members of the Scantie Che 

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

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 an 1 prais : to Han tb a ruleth on High. 

In all these rejoicings we ma> well 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 ivas brave 
Sergeant Alvord. So were Thomas Barber and Edward Pattison, 
whose valiant right arm caused -.even 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

gives fully equal credit tc Thomas Barber. (See sketch under

TryphEx\e 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 unfrequentiy 
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 came. 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 hi 
place was the first question to be solved. The old gentleman, 
nothing daunted, Putnam like, descended into the cavern : after 
groping his way s >i le dist mce, the ; anther, not relishing this in- 
trusion upi - eat, 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, sccmc the party without, prepared to give him battle, 
stood moti >nless, when one i :' the - ns discharged a ball thr ugh 
his body and intestines, ' which pr luce I no erm ti n, the animal 
sullenly retaining his position. This act of the son called forth a 
sharp reprimand fr >m the cither 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 within 
the town of Canton. — Brown's " General Hist, of Simsbury, etc."

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 elate 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 3 8, 
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 
dale of birth is by far the mere probable one. The only reason- 
able explanation, therefore, is that the son David, b. Mch. 30, 
1740, must have died young and another son, bom 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 1749 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 tree bridge forever. We are told that 
a sufficient number of the citizens accepted the terms, and "in 
1749, a good cart bridge was accordingly erected across the 
Tunixis."

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

again Captain. In 16^3 he was one et the County Court which 
sat in S{ ringfie] 1, upon the case of M iry Webster, * under strong 
suspicion of having familiarity with the devil,'— a i if awards 
referred to the Court of Assist: nts at Boston, which resulted in 
her acquittal; " — Stiles "Ancient Windsor." 

Loannah's grandmother, Edie Drake, was of the Drake family 
of Windsor, so main of whose members married into the Barber 
family. Her line of descent from tne Emigrant being as follows :

The records of Simsbur sb v tha i Da :i Barber married

that this \ id, the son Samuel, mentioned above. 

No public record .... is yet been found, and it is 

more than likely that it w; - burned at Canton. But that the 
wife of David Barber was Sarah La v'rence, is abundantly proven 
by the records j ieventsinthe i tory of his descendants. 

Miss Julia Bar >er (No. 2264) of Charleston, W. \"a.. who with 
her brother, Levi Alien Barber, h is made a careful study of this 
branch of the family, writes on this point as follows : — 

" I rei :m ' hearing rm i lis old Uncle 1 vid H. 

(No. 671) wh i married Clarissa ."h . t lk.ii , of her (Sarah 

Lawrence) when 1 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 (1357). She had two sons by her 
second husband, one named Lawrence Dy^r." 

As this old Uncle David Id. 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, s after the 
death of his tamer, 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 . . , wedding. 

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

It is probable that the David Barber who married Deborah 
Adams is David (No. 19 5; son of Isaac and Martha (Adams) 
Barber.

The Rev. Isaiah Butler, the father of the above family, was a 
patriot, and there is abundant evidence in the family history- in 
support of the tradition that he was in service in the cause of 
the colonists, although his name does not appear on any o f L 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 wire, Elizabeth Barber, died. He married 2nd, 
a Miss Hill, by whom he had six children. They removed to 
Sehroon Lake, N. Y., where both he and his second wife died 
and were buried.

THE BARBER GENEALOGY 



Mr. Butler studied tor the ministry in the Presbyterian C 
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 clerg\ man who 
visited in Mr. and Mrs. Butlers home. He described Mrs. But- 
ler as being an unusually bright, vivacious, and gifted woman. 
and stated that she had r :d \\:.\c, a fair complex! <n and ' n ne eyes. 

The name Isaiah was a favorite one in the Butler family, the 
Rev. Isaiah being the third in his lirect 1 ■ •-. bearing the name. 
Perhaps on this account h< ted as a middle name, "Zada" 

and he is known to his descendants as Isaiah Zada Butler, but 
in all official papers his name ippears as Isaiah Butler, Jr., the 
name "Zada" in no ease being used. 

According to the records, it seems that he ,vas undoubtedly a 
descendant of John Butler, who was a member of the " Ancient 
and Honorable Artillen 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

+946. iv. David, b. Sept. 8, 1802. 

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 vas 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 S700.00 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, 1801. 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 marie 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 inarch has carried civilisation from ocean 
to ocean.''

his horse and his shoul '. vhich prevented him from 

s "■. rin 1 r h.' s - ■ " i, he mvard i vered 

from the injury. In 182 I . removed with his family to Nelson, 
Portgage County, Ohio. 

Beside.- the usu; I h irdships of a pioneer life, Mr. Barber had, 
the first year, an additional misfortune. Just as the long severe 
winter Avas setting in, h^h^-a, containing practically :.I1 of his 
first year's crop, a g al of his stock and ail or his (arming 

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 
in their gra\"es. 

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, Avife of Thomas Barber, was born in Hartford 
County, Conn., and die 1 at their home in Nelson, Portage 
County, Ohio, May 19, 1S49. 

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.

we!3 rber L was 3 ' l trail and the settlers found their 

way to the homes or their neighbors by means of blazed trees. 

Soon after arrb ing at their new home, Roswell Barber, with a 
few others an 1 . for religi >us services which wore maintained 
steadily until I8L3, when a church of 12 members was organized. 
Their pulpit was - lied b; :he "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 
R iv il Barber was ib c - .pen. 

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. lb Farwell of Orange. Texas, a descendant of 
Roswell Barber, a copy was obtained and is as follows :

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 imen. 

During 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, IS31 ; aged 61 
years" but according to the Bible record he was b. Oct. 29, 
177 3, so that he would have been a little past 57 years of age at 
the time oi 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 age I 74 years. 

The cemetery inscription gives the date of death of the son

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 life 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 11 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 t 1364.

203 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 foot 
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 z\m^ living, who was at that time member of 
Congress, (Levi Barber No. 1+22). 

" "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 
1323. 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 sixteen 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 1S40, my father re- 
moved to Harmar, now a part of Marietta, Ohio, where he re- 
mained until the end of his life. Nov. 1st, 1337." 

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 tor herseit treasures 
where moth and rust would not corrupt." 

"A Methodist Church hail been built about 1313-4. 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 rhe church, my father 
had been given a rather conspicuous sear well forward with his 
family, v\ hen old Abe Pickens, one or m\ mother's numerous 
proteges strutted forward, dressed in my father's regimentals 
with the epaulets and brass battens. This angered my father 
very much. He said to ray mother, ' You might at least have 
told me before giving those things to him.' She replied, ' You 
would never have use J then: again and Piekens promised to take 
off the epaulets and all the brass buttons, but I suppose the 
poor man had no other buttons to put on, out I will see that 
they are taken off.' " 

" [ never remember seeing my father at the head of his regi- 
ment bur once, which was, I think, about 3 842, 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 1S52 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 ail suffering greatly from hunger and thirst. 

They arrived in San Francisco May 22, 1S52. 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 wis 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, fountain 
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 $1S,0U0. By persistent effort he saved 
the city over $200,000, in thwarting a scheme for putting in a 
4 1/2 x 6 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 rlushing 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 County 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 che 
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 Societv of Santa 
Barbara, and on die occasion of President McKinley's visit tc 
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 I. 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 wdth 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 Oricans, La., Oct. 26, 1841, and came to California in 
1854. She is the daughter of James and Ararninta (Little) 
Meehan. Her parents were both born in Athione, 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

and her brother.) In 1849 Mrs. Meehan married, second. Benja- 
min Wheaton, who was born in England, and her two children 
by her first husband took the name of Wheaton.

" For many years he owned and commanded a sloop in which 
he performed great service for the Continental Government in

ish ships." 

4< 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."

he gained from a letter written in 1859 b\ 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 
caked, " 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 lew of the 
places where he was located as pastor : Vernon, X. Y.. Dur- 
hamville, N. Y., Springport, N. Y., Union Springs, N. Y., 
Oneida and Norwich, N. Y., Napierville, 111., 1355, Geneva, 
111, 1860-62, Lake Forest, I'll., 1866. He established a boys' 
school in Napierville and about 1S66 he founded Oakwood Hall, 
a school for boys at Lake Forest, 111. 

In 187 2 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, 1S50 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 SO rods east of 
Main street, and just south o;~ Oak Grove. The lot consists of 
one acre, commanding a most delightful view of the village, the 
lake and surrounding scen.erv. The building now beine" erected 

a fc> o 

is tour stories, the basement story ot stone and the three upper 
stories of brick. 



12A THE. BARBER GENEALOGY. 

" Rev. Barker, who is to preside over the institution, ha\ n . 
conceived a n )ble enterprise, has moved steadilv 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 particular)' qualified for the 
duties incumbent on an instructor of the young. He is mild, gen- 
tle, firm, unwavering and persevering — of a liberal and conciliator) 
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 of the building where VV. H. 
Wood is principal (1907.) 

The following is a notice of his lectures taken from a paper of 
date 1S55. 

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 49 
pupils. 

He wrote both prose and poetry for publication, and was also 
a great a Ivocate of temperance, lecturing on the subject and 
writing an " Ode to Temperance," which was published from 
Springport, X. V., in 1342. 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 ga'e 
Filling the wide expanded c ail. 
Descending from above. 

There's many a pebhiy rill, 
Sct't gliding from :he 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 Med away; 
Its holy hours have borne on high 
The secret prayer, the heartfelt sigh. 

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

The following is quoted and condensed from a verv 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 tor a boy 
preparing to enter college, having read the entire .Elneid, 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 1362 he taught a country school and he relates 
in his sketch, how an old lady, 8u years old, giandmother of one

THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 297 

of his pupils, learned to read, and read the New Testament 
through the fo'<~' ■ ■ _■ ■ Lr. He also gives an interesting account 
of bis work in preparing one of his pupils for college, the boy 
taking private lessons of Mr. Barber tor two years. When he 
entered college, the young man ranked' second in a class of over 
100 student.-, the first place being held by a son of Bishop 
Thompson. 

In the summer of 1866, Mr. Barber removed his family to Sagi- 
naw, Mich., ana f 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, 1S71, 
with but little insurance, and that of little value. 

"We lost about $S0,000 that night by the hre, and my share of 
the loss included the purchase of the mill that was burned, 
which purchase was made in the year 1SG6, at the then current 
rate of 10'U annual interest. You will remember that in 1 866, 
gold was worth about $2, and before I got my interest paid up 
(I. was the only one wh > 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 Eor 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 continued 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 18SL" 

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 137 1, when he went to Marietta, 
Ohio to live with his kinsman, David Barber. He was graduated 
from Marietta College in 1S77 and from the Medical Dept. of 
the University of Penn. in 1SS2. 

Directly after his first marriage, he settled in Charleston, 
W. Va., where he so<jn 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 axter lost his life in an accident. 

" Daniel Barber, the lather 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, Korieon 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 refii ing lil. After a couple of years stay there a dis- 
astrous oil fire destroyed the plant and killed his brother Levi. 
He then went back to Plymouth, Ind., where he died about 187 5. 

"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 Ids 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 Electro-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 ma)- 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 oniy 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 IS6S-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 Petroiia, both in Penn. 



324 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

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

While living in East Brady, Pa., he assisted in establishing the 
"Warren Count) 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 ■ meat ighl liter 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 190!, 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. 325 

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 Bunding, Kansas City, Mo. 

In the fad of 1908, President Roosevelt appointed Mr White a 
member of the National Commission of the Conservation of 
National Resources. This Commission met in Washington, 
U. 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. White 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 persona] 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 h ppened 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 : 



Robert Kinnear, probably a 
kinsman of James, 
but relationship 
not known ; m. 
Elizabeth Barow.

328 THE BA-KBER GENEALOGY. 

Mrs. White's great-gn.ndfather, John Siggins, came to 
America in 1793. He d. near Centre Turner, Pa., in April, 
ISO!. His widow subsequently removed with her family to 
Youngsville, Pa., where she d. in 1S35 at the age of 85. She is 

said to have beer. 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 
Alieine, to which belonged the celebrated divines, Samuel Ruth- 
erford and Joseph Alieine. 

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-grandrnother, 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 his ton' of the Walker and 
allied families. 

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

Dr. John L-'ranklin White. 

(\o. 133-1 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 329 

3338. v. Raymond Baird White, b. Grandin, Carter Co., 

Mo., March IS. 1^9; 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 
1S94. In the fail of t S95 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 1893 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 fail of 1S99. he assumed charge ot 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 11, 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 fails 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 



330 THE BARBER GENEALOGY. 

closed places of business, the draped doorways, the silent mills or 
the flag at half-mast, were the cl< sed and silei . of the 

laborers, and the absolutely deserted streets, where no even a 
child played. No one pad 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 r 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.

Marcus A. Hanna was a son of Dr. Leonard Hanna. About 
1852 Dr. Hanna removed with his family from New Lisbon to 
Cleveland. Here the son, Marcus A., received his education in 
the public schools. 

For nearly 40 years he was a prominent business man of the 
city of Cleveland. In 1884 he was a delegate to the National 
Republican Convention and from that time until his death he 
was a prominent figure in state and national politics. His influ- 
ence in the McKinley campaign and his close friendship with 
President McKinley, are matters of history. 

He was elected United States Senator from Ohio in 1897, 
which office he retained until his death which occurred in Wash- 
ington, D.C., Feb. 15, 1904.

1L, 1870 ; m. in 1900, Edith Henry of Detroit. No issue. 

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 obtaiAed too late to be in- 
serted under his own number (2057) in the 7th generation. 

"George Harrison Barbour was b. in Coilinsville, 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 tenoered to him. Mr. Barbou r 
promptly accepted the offer, disposed of his interests in the Coi- 
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 .<. - • • i ethods. This com- 

pany has for many years been recognized as the largest and most 
progressive of its ki in the world. 

•• Mr. Barbour tas to ie associated in the interim with many 

prominent commercial and .. organizations, ana poss 

the reputation of being most conservative and acute in all matters 
relating to these branches. He possesses the rare faculty of 
being enable'' to separate the "chaff" from the "wheat/" and of 
connecting himseli oni) with meritorious and successful enter- 
prises. As a banker he is widely and favorabl) 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 n irmally 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 aiso 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, in 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

eral times before various C mini tees ol the United States Sen- 
ate in connectioi - • regu- 
lation of manufacturers, and moi : ispecialiy in cor.ru ction with 
the consid ration ; i ■ r :n ] ig in reference to mak- 
ing sight hours a -_, •' a ys work for labor. 

;< Mr. Barbour was a member of the National Commission of the 
World's Fair held in Chicago in 1893, P^esi lent of the 

Michigan Commission to ;he Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo 
in 1901. In the latter capacity he enjoyed the ui i e istinction 
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 entire!}" 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."

DESCENDANTS 0? JOHN BAR3SR 

OF WORCESTER, MASS. 



I7I4-I909 



COMPILED BY 

Edmund Dana Barbour. 



THE BARBER GENEALOGY. IDS 



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 Dedharn 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 50, I7i4, 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. 
IS, L70S; Thomas, born Oct. 7, 1709; Hannah, born Aug. 31, 
1712 ; and John, born June 31/, 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, 1632; Joseph, born 
July 3, 16S6; and Elizabeth, born Oct. 8, 168S.

EDITOR'S PREFACE 



The Genealogy of the Descendants of John Barber of Worces- 
ter, Mass., as here presented, is published 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.
