I am researching the Barber Family.The following is taken from a bible purchased and begun by Oliver Foster Barber circa 1865.The listings in the bible give only dates of birth and death.I have no idea where they came from.
Here is how I think the Barber family goes:
Robert J. Barber b. 7 August 1826 and d. 27 May 1900.Married Unknown His children were: James W. Barber b. 4 May 1849 Mary Jain Barber b. 20 December 1850 and died 2 September 1877 (It is possible that her maiden name was Jain and she married into the family.The record is not clear.) Clara O. Barber b. 11 February 1850 and died 27 May 1931.Married Hendershot. Alice Barber b. 27 November 1852 and died 15 November 1930.Married Channon. Oliver Foster Barber b. 25 February 1858 died 21 December 1935 Nicholas Mouver Barber b. 14 March 1860 died 29 June 1865 Anna Clara Barber b. 3 November 1862 died 6 July 1865 Mary Monroe Barber b. 7 January 1866 died unknown
Oliver Foster was the father of: Ralph W. Barber b. 12 May 1881 died in Phoenix, Arizona married Pearl Nash Edith May Barber b. 5 May 1885
Ralph W. Barber and Pearl Nash were the parents of: Hazel Marsha Barber b. 27 September 1907 Ralph Nash Barber b. 18 March 1911 died 13 October 1979.Married Margaret Olive Callan b. 3 October 1915 died 10 June 1998 Ruth Ann Blanche Barber b. 22 December 1914
Ralph Nash Barber and Margaret Olive Callan were the parents of: Peter Wesley Barber
Ralph Nash Barber married Helen Mae Amer Meeds and were the parents of: Gerald George Barber b. 1951
Some of this is conjecture.
My mother thought Ralph W. Barber may have come from OK, maybe Custer County?
