THE CONNECTICUT BARBERS, a Genealogy of the Descendants of THOMAS BARBER of Windsor, CT. Published in 2001, by Donald S Barber, M.D. Second (and Final!) Edition
580 pages, hardbound, 8 ˝” x 11”, printed on acid-free paper by McDowell Publications of Utica, Kentucky.
Thomas Barber emigrated from England to Windsor in 1635. His English family, found in Stamford, Lincolnshire, is described. Thomas and his wife Jane or Joan had 6 children, who in turn had 54 of their own. 14 generations of Barber descendants are included (some are Barbours). They migrated first to NY, MA, VT, NH, and then on to OH, PA, WV, IN, IL, MI, WI, MN, SD, IA, KS, NE, MO, and nearby states, eventually reaching the deep south and far west.
There are 1762 Barber/Barbour families, plus 1202 of their daughter’s families (total 2964). An every name index of over 35,000 entries. Years of research went into making this genealogy much more extensive than either the 1909 version by White and Wilson (440 total families), or the 1992 first edition of The Connecticut Barbers (1800 total families). The second edition contains everything from the first, with some important corrections. Computer online genealogy with e-mail and genealogy websites opened up vast new sources of information.
References are given with each family. Over 300 correspondents have supplied data, and their names and addresses are included.
85 of the original 300 copies remain available (as of 14 Jun 2002).
