31. Capt. STEPHEN4 BARBER (David3), b Hebron CT 4 Apr 1724; d there 22 Jul 1806; m there 12 Jan 1748/9 Alice CASE/CASS, b 5 Dec 1730, d Hebron 28 Oct 1814, daughter of Moses and Mary (HASKINS) CASE, and sister of Patience, wife of David BARBER, #30; r Hebron.
Stephen chose Moses CASE as his guardian in 1739 (and 9 years later married Moses’s daughter). Stephen served in the Revolution. He was a Corporal in the Lexington Alarm in 1775. The White‑Wilson Genealogy lists another daughter Abigail in the family of Stephen and Alice. However, a family Bible at the CT State Library lists all of Stephen's children carefully, without mentioning Abigail. The Hebron birth records place her as David's daughter.

After Gideon's death Elias Gilbert became guardian of two of Gideon's children, Abijah and Levi, minors, at Manchester 23 Feb 1788.

Reuben moved from Windsor to Harwinton in 1748‑1750, but became discouraged at the difficulty of clearing land, and returned to Windsor. Soon he tried again with more success, and settled near the river in a better spot. In addition to working his farm, he became a tanner and shoemaker. Reuben was one of the organizers of Litchfield County in 1751.
He volunteered to help in the relief of Boston in 1775, was in the Lexington Alarm under Capt Amos Wilcox. He served in the revolutionary Army again in 1780, “in the Levies”, as Captain of the Harwinton Company. He was a selectman of Harwinton, and a Militia Officer. He was referred to as "Rev.", but I have seen no reference as to why.

David was commander of a military company at Poquonock. He was detailed by General Washington to go with Major Kent of New Hampshire to watch the movements of the British. In 1777 Ensign David Barber led a detachment of 11 men to Peekskill NY for this purpose.
David was one of the 31 builders of "a good cart bridge" across the Rivulet, now known as the Farmington River, at the ferry site, in 1749.

Noah was one of the first members mentioned in the Wapping Parish Church, which was built in 1765.
Noah was one of those impressed into service in Capt. Nathaniel Hayden's Train Band, 13 Apr 1759. At that time 46 influential men of Windsor paid money which was given to enlistees and impressed men to encourage them to be in military service, and kept their sons and servants from serving. This was during the French and Indian Wars.
Noah took part in the Boston Tea Party in 1773. It is related that a judge, whose home the group was passing after the "party", stuck his head out the window, and said "well, boys, you will have to settle tomorrow for your Indian caper". To this Noah replied "we will settle with you now, squire, if you will come out here". The offer was declined.
Noah was a sergeant in the Lexington Alarm in 1775, and took part in the “march to the relief of Boston” in that year. In appreciation for this service he was granted a piece of woodland as a bounty. Timber from this woodland was used in the initial building of Dartmouth College. Noah also went with the Army on the campaign to Quebec, under Benedict Arnold, later in 1775. He was a Lieutenant in the 11th Company, or Trainband, in 1777, and became a Captain in 1778. The gun that he carried has been passed down in the family, to Edward W (see #561), and then Charles H (see #563).

Joel was in Capt. Mills' Company of Militia in the Revolution. He was a private in Enos’s First Connecticut Regiment.

Jerijah and 4 others from Windsor were drafted and served in the Revolutionary War at New York City and Westchester in August and September of 1776. This put him in the disastrous Battle of Long Island, 27 Aug 1776, then White Plains and the subsequent retreat through Westchester. After that he found it preferable to pay someone else to serve in his place.
After the War he founded a tannery at Mill Brook near Poquonock Avenue, and near his home, where he was in business for many years. Here skins of horses, cattle and sheep were brought for processing into leather for boots, saddles, etc. In addition to the tannery, Jerijah had a sizeable farm.

James was a Captain in the Revolutionary Army, and also in the War of 1812, during which his son James N also served. Sons Jonathan, David, James N, and Aaron were all apparently in Herkimer Co NY, just above Cooperstown (see below). [~ Barbour Index; CT church rec; Bushnell Gen; Lure of the Litchfield Hills; 1810,20,30,40 census:Herkimer Co ~]

In 1820 and 1830 Jonathan lived in Frankfort, Herkimer Co, but no wife was apparent in 1820. In
1830 he apparently was married again; his 2nd wife was born in the 1780’s. Another brother, James N,

Amaziah m/2 Simsbury (“both of Simsbury”) 9 Dec 1778, Widow Mercy (KEENY) SHELDON, b Hartford CT 1742, d before Oct 1820. Mercy m/1 1762 Remembrance SHELDON.
Amaziah served in the French and Indian War, after enlisting in August 1759, and again in 1761 in the Connecticut Militia. He also was in the Lexington Alarm of 1775, and also probably was in the 7th Continental Regiment in the Revolutionary Army in 1775, and again in 1781 in the Second Continental Light Dragoons, known as “Sheldon's Horse”. He enlisted as well in the War of 1812, at age 72, but was sent home, the feeling being that his former services were sufficient.
After 1783, when he was formally discharged from military service, Amaziah left Connecticut, and the family was in Harpersfield, Delaware Co NY by 1790, in Delhi, Delaware Co (15 miles SW of Harpersfield) in 1800, and by 1810 in Boyle, Ontario Co, in the part which later became Penfield, and after 1821 was in Monroe Co NY.
Amaziah was primarily a farmer. He was one of the organizers of the Baptist Church in Penfield, and was its first deacon. In 1816 there was a split in this church, and a second Baptist congregation, the “Peace Baptist Church” was the result, with Amaziah and family in it. Partly because of this in 1817 Amaziah and his family moved to Townsend, Huron Co MI with the rest of the members of the new church, just a few families. Amaziah and his sons and their families, and the other families of the Peace Baptist Church were a close-knit group, living in what was called “The Barber Settlement”, in western Townsend, near the Norwalk line. In bargaining for their land, they tried to get a pledge from Kneeland Townsend, the proprietor, that so-called “worldly people” be kept from settling in that part of town. There was almost no communication between the Barber group and other settlers who were not in the Peace Baptist Church. The children were kept away from the other children. Cousins married cousins. A double wedding of Barbers once took place, the notice of which was published in the Norwalk Reporter, headed “Barber-ous Times in Townsend”.

Seth fought in the French and Indian War. The parents of the boys Seth and Samuel, below, are uncertain.

According to a DAR lineage, Daniel served in the Revolution, as a fifer in Lt Job Case’s Co, 18th Regiment, CT Militia, under Col. Jonathan Pettibone in an expedition to NY in 1776.

On 27 Apr 1773 a newspaper announcement appeared: “Ephraim Welch, age 17, ran away from Elisha Barber of Simsbury”, followed by a description. A $3.00 reward was offered for this apprentice.
Elisha served as a sergeant in the American Revolution, in Lt. Job Case’s Company, 18th Regiment, Connecticut Militia. Later he was a surveyor in Pownal VT during 1778 to 1790, where he received land confiscated from the convicted Tory Benjamin GARDNER, after Elisha gave a deposition against Gardner. He farmed in Simsbury CT, then moved to Hinesburg VT in 1786, where he was town clerk in 1787, and a State Representative in 1789. While in the Hinesburg area he helped to lay out several other towns, including Westford and Jericho.
Elisha and his family moved to Fairfield by 1798. In Vermont he was called “Judge”.

ix LUCIAN6 BARBOUR, b Canton 4 Mar 1811; d Indianapolis IN 19 Jul 1880; m 11 Oct 1842 Alice Thomas
BARBEE, daughter of Dr Thomas and Alice Bickerton (WINSTON) BARBEE of Paris, Bourbon Co KY
(not far from Madison, Jefferson Co IN). Another source states that she was the daughter of General
Philip E and Elizabeth Branch (HOPKINS) BARBOUR of Kentucky, a native of Virginia.
General Philip Barbour was a first cousin of James BARBOUR, Governor of Virginia (1812), United States
Senator, and later Secretary of War under President J Q ADAMS (1825‑29). James’s brother Philip Pendleton
BARBOUR served as a US Supreme Court Justice, 1836‑1842. It seems unlikely that Alice was a Barbour,
because Lucian did not meet the Virginia‑Kentucky Barbours until he went to Washington in 1855. Alice’s
mother Alice lived with the family in 1850.
Lucian received a BA degree from Amherst College in Amherst MA in 1837, and an MA from Amherst in 1843.
He studied law in Madison, Jefferson Co IN 1837‑1839. Lucian and his family then lived in Indianapolis, where
he became a prominent lawyer. He was several times the arbiter between the State of Indiana and private corporations. Lucian
served as U.S District Attorney in Indianapolis, 1848 to 1850. He was elected by a coalition
of Free Soil, Temperance, and Know-Nothing Parties to the United States Congress from Indiana, 1855 to 1857.
He became a Republican in 1860. After his term in Congress he practiced law until his death.
In Washington, Lucian was introduced to the famous Virginia Barbour family. He became friendly with Senator
James Barbour, while they were both there. It was because of these associations that he changed the spelling
of his name to Barbour, and persuaded his brothers to do the same, so that since then, BARBOUR has been the
spelling in this branch of the Thomas Barber family. [~ James Barbour Gen; Corresp:Diane Graham; Amherst
