Re: PETER BARBER/ROSINA MILLS PERTH AMBOY NEW JERSEY
I am a descendant of Peter M. Barber born December 28, 1842 in Browntown (according to Obituary)NJ and died March 16,1905 in Cliffside Beach NJ. These towns are in the general vicinity of South Amboy, NJ.
When I first saw the census record you mentioned of a Peter Barber, I was very interested because his son Peter would be of the same age. The problem though is this Rosina Mills.
According to Peter M Barber's census records, his mother's name was Elsie and she would have been born in about 1810 or 1811. She lived with Peter at the time of her death in 1894. Her obit says she was buried at Rose Hill Cemetery where Peter, my grandfather, grandmother, mu great uncle Mansfield Barber and his son are buried as well as Peter M.Barber's wife Celia and her parents William Bogart are buried (Matawan, NJ).Unfortunately, it does not mention anything like she was preceded in death by her husband....
My father Warren Barber was born in South Amboy, and many of Peter's kinfolk apparently lived in the area as well.
Peter M Barber's children by Celia Bogart were Mansfield B, Lewis B, Charles S, Irene, Rodman F. and James H. born between 1867 and 1879.
I think there is some link here between your husbands family and mine, but I too have not made progress beyond what I have already mentioned
