Jillen DAVIS was sister of Comfort MERRIMAN, second wife of Samuel4 BARBER, father of Samuel5. Jillen m/2 Benjamin HEATH, and Hannah assumed the name HEATH, apparently. Samuel and Hannah lived in Harwinton in 1772, and in Watertown in 1790. Anna KNAPP, who is given as Samuel5's wife in the first edition of "The Connecticut Barbers", was probably the wife of Samuel Barber, Jr. of New Marlboro MA, a few miles south of Tyringham, and not related to the Barbers in this Thomas Barber Genealogy. [~ 1909 Barber Gen; Vital rec:CT; Knapp Gen; Vital rec:Tyringham; Land rec:Hartland; Corresp: Julia J Henderson, including family rec of Julia A Child Dye ~]

in Elba, where
Rachel, Alexander’s wife, and Charles, and their families were living. They had a son and a daughter in 1830. These
children probably died young, since they are not mentioned in the probate record at David’s death. After Hannah
died, David m/2 Lee MA 15 Oct 1849 Electa HULETT. [~ 1820, 1830 censuses:Elba ~]
The 1790 census shows Samuel and Hannah probably had another daughter.

James DALY from Aberdeen, Scotland. The writeup in Popular Bios states that she had 6 children by James
DALY, and 5 children by Stephen BARBER.
Stephen is placed here as a son of Stephen because he is called "Junior", and also because of the proximity to
Elizabethtown NY, across Lake Champlain. His son Hezekiah was presumably named for Stephen's uncle. The
1820 census of Cornwall VT has: Stephen, Jr. 110100 31010 - 1.

Elihu did well there in the dairy farming business, and became known as "Butter Barber". The farm gradually grew to over 500 acres. During the War of 1812 he delivered butter to Manlius, Onondaga Co every morning, a trip of 9 miles, holding 3 pails as he rode his horse to the hotel in Manlius.
Before Elihu became established and got the new frame house built, Hannah provided the income with her loom, weaving linen and woolens for the neighbors. They were among the organizers of the First Baptist Church of Pompey. [~ 1909 Barber Gen; CT State Lib:The Pompey Reunion; Corresp:Eleanor Dillon; 1810,20,30,40 census:Pompey ~]

They then moved to Hebron CT, where they stayed until 1818, when Josiah and Sophia moved to Brooklyn OH (part of greater Cleveland). Their home was in a beautiful spot, on the west bank of the Cuyahoga River, looking over the Cuyahoga Valley. In 1840 Josiah is listed in “Ohio City”, Cuyahoga Co.
He became financially interested in several manufacturing enterprises in Cleveland, including the Cuyahoga Steam Furnace Co. Also he and his brother-in-law Richard Lord formed “Lord and Barber”, a real estate firm, and he dealt constantly in land deals.
In 1836 he became the first Mayor of Ohio City, which later merged with Cleveland. He was also on the Board of Trustees of Kenyon College; a Representative to the Ohio State Legislature in at least 1821-22; in 1822 a member of the Governor’s Commission on Schools; a founder of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Cleveland. In 1820 Trinity Church in Cleveland was but 3 years old, and poor, having no home or rectors. Josiah opened his house to the Church, and for the next 6 years services were held there intermittently.

Very likely John5 of Harwinton, b 16 Jul 1746 is the same individual as this John1 who married Elizabeth CHENEY and is hereafter described. According to an LDS Group sheet John's father is Ebenezer of the Springfield MA area, but I find no Ebenezer of the right dates. Another family tradition is that John came from Canada. John m Ashford CT 27 Feb 1772 Elizabeth CHENEY, b Ashford 6 Sep 1752, d 11 Mar 1827, daughter of William and Ruth (EASTMAN) CHENEY. Both are buried in St George Cemetery. Until the 1790’s John resided in Petersburg, Rensselaer Co NY, about 25-30 miles south of Granville, Washington Co NY, where Benjamin and Lemuel (probably his brothers) went from Connecticut.
[There was one Barber family (Thomas5) living in Ashford CT at the time John was married to Elizabeth CHENEY. It is possible that John Barber is related to that family, whose descent is Thomas1 Thomas2, Thomas3, Thomas4, Thomas5 (b 1728) who lived at Ashford. Thomas4 could possibly have had another son, John5, born 1745/6, brother of Thomas5, and born after the rest of his recorded children, and who then could be the one who married Elizabeth CHENEY.]
John served in Capt. Allen’s Company, 1781, in the Revolution. In about 1797 they moved to Williston VT. John's marriage and the children's births are recorded in Williston, but probably none of them occurred there.

Lemuel was an early settler in Granville, Washington Co NY; they had 4 children in school there in 1797. He was in Crown Point, Essex Co NY in 1800 (census: 20010-31010); his brother Benjamin lived in Granville 1790-1797, and then went north to Plattsburg, Clinton Co; his brother John is probably the one who went north to Williston VT, and his brother Isaac is probably the one who went north to Isle La Mott VT. (Lemuel is unlikely the one in Naples, Ontario Co in 1810 and 1820.) Lemuel and his family moved to Mason Co, Kentucky at sometime after 1805.
Lemuel served in the Revolutionary War, and the descendants have a keg which he carried while in service, in which he kept liquor “for emergencies”. Lemuel’s estate left a considerable amount of spinning and weaving equipment. [~ Corresp:Charles R Barber; Corresp:Carl E Reeve; Hist of Knox and Daviess Co, IN; 1790 census:Granville ~]

Daniel is listed as a Revolutionary Soldier from Sunderland Vermont, in Capt. Daniel Comstock’s Company in 1778; he apparently served and was paid for just 2 days, April 22nd and 23rd in 1778. He also served short times in 1780, 1781, and in Colonel Ira Allen’s Regiment, Capt. Eli Brownson’s Company in 1782 and 1783.
In 1776 Ruth (MESSENGER) THAYER, a newborn daughter of Roderick MESSENGER, was left by her mother’s death, in care of an 11 year old sister, who cared for her as best she could for some 9 weeks, when her father bargained with Daniel Barber, then a resident of Sunderland, to take the child, and she was subsequently adopted by Daniel.
Daniel was a resident of Sunderland in 1774 when he bought land there. He also bought land there from “his father-in-law Isaac Phelps” in 1777. He was chosen Highway Surveyor of Sunderland in 1781. At the close of the war in 1784 they came to Shelburne.
Their house and land, situated on level ground adjoining Lake Champlain, later passed into the Webb Estate, which is now Shelburne Farms and Museum, a well‑known tourist attraction. A land record in Shelburne VT shows Daniel buying land from Ira ALLEN, both of Sunderland VT.

A Revolutionary War Record for a Shubael Barber, who served in 1775 in Boston, in Capt.

"Uncle Hayden", as he was called, always lived in the home of his parents. He was a leading
Republican, and for a time served as State Senator for his district. He owned water‑power at Mill Brook, where he
ran a sawmill. He also had a brickyard.
Nathaniel was given, as many of us are, to try schemes which would bring quick riches. After the Civil War, he
bought up many Union Army knapsacks, and stored them, believing that the government would pay good money for
them in the "next war". He died before that came about. He also bought up at the same time, I believe, a carload of
caskets, for the same purpose. I don't know what became of them. I guess he was well‑enough off, without these
enterprises becoming successful.

Elijah fought in the Revolution, and I believe gained the rank of Captain. The 1810 census of ?Bridgewater, Oneida Co NY shows an E Barber, born before 1765, with wife and 1 boy, b 1785-95.

Horace m/2 Mabel S ‑‑‑, b 1795, d 22 Nov 1844. Both Horace and his first wife Lydia are buried at Warehouse Point.
Horace was the first of the Barbers to locate at Warehouse Point. He established a shipyard at the end of the bridge, and started building sloops, gradually increasing the size and number of vessels that he built. He was caught short of funds, with too much invested, when the Embargo Act was put into effect in December 1807, preventing American ships from sailing to European ports. He was financially ruined, but his spirits were not crushed, and he founded what was later the famous Barber Distillery. This was so successful that he was able to pay off all his old debts including the interest, the interest in some cases being larger than the principle.
Horace was one of the founders of the Episcopal Church in Warehouse Point, and at various times he was Deputy Sheriff and Justice of the Peace. [~ 1909 Barber Gen; Barbour Index; CT Bible rec; Vital rec:CT; CT Hist Soc:LBBarbour Manuscript; Hartford County:Beers; Lure of the Litchfield Hills ~]

politician. Perhaps this last interest caused the disagreement which cost him his life, for he was killed in a duel with a
newspaper editor named MacWhorter. [~ CT Bible rec; CT State Lib:Buckley Gen ~]
