Re: Thomas Barber History
Paul, thanks for posting your Barber DNA results. I, too, descend from Capt. John Barber > Abraham Barber > Elizabeth Barber/Richard Sasser. Elizabeth and Richard Sasser's granddaughter, Ellen Sasser, married John Bowers and were my 3g grandparents.
So, am I to understand that Capt. John's parents weren't George Barber and Elizabeth Moore? If not, I would assume there's at least a missing generation between Capt. John and Moses Barber of Rhode Island? Where was Moses located in Rhode Island? Was he the one who left RI, or a son?
I had another ancestor, Thomas Tibbitts, who left Warwick, Kent Co., RI, around 1800 for Elbert Co., GA. I always thought it was an odd migration, but suspect he was a Rev War vet and received a land grant in GA.
Thanks, Rodney Bowers
