was sick but three dnjs u'.il his death
cumo as n'Mirpriso to his hotts of
fi iends and uniiaiiiliu:oes, for, though
ho bad pulsed the allotted thioe b ore
and ten, ho was apparently in good
health up to the time of his taking sick
witli pneumonia, three days before his
Tho funeral was held Monday from
tho family home, Rev. Willahan,pasloi
of the Baptist church, conducting the
services, nnd the burial took plaeo in
the Red Cloud cemetciy, tho remains
bein followed to the gravo by a large
number of friends nnd relatives.
John A Btirbor was born in Rocket,
Borkt-hiro county, Massachusetts,
January 10,, 1820, and lacked but 14
days of being 75 years of ago at tho
timo of his d nth. Ho was married
September G, 1853, to Miss Laura L.
Bills of Lee, Mass.
In 1855 Mr. and Mrs. Btirbor re
moved to Sterling, III , and in May,
1991, camo to Nebraska, locating at Red
Cloud, being among the very lirat
sottloisof this county. Shortly after
arriving hero Mr. Barber took up a
homestead a tullo and a half west of
hero, which has ever since been his
Mr Buber was the father .of six
children, nil of whom, as well as bis
aged wife, survive him. Tho children
are: Charles H. Barber of Almenn,
Kan., Herbert A. Barber of Womtr,
Kan.; William Barberof San Francisco,
Cab; Fred O. Barber, Mrs. Ed McCune
and Mis. Lulu Matter of this county,
thejatter of whom was the tirst white
girl born in Webster county.
Mr. Barbor was a veteran of the
civil war, nnd has always boon a hard
working, honest nnd upright citizen.
On tho 0th of last September Mr.
Barber nnd hi aged wife wero given a
surprise by tlioir host of friends, the
occasion being the tiftieth anniversary
of their wedding, at which timo Mr.
Barber was prasentod with a gold
watch by his frieuds and neighbors of
more than thirty years standlog. His
death will bo rogretted by all who
The death of John A. Barber was
preceded but a few hours by that of
hi brother-in-law, Samuel Billing,
who died Saturday eveningat half past
six. Funeral services wore conducted
at 0 o'clock Sunday morning by Rev.
Wm. Hauptmann, pastor of the Con
gregational church, and tho burial was
at Mt. Hope cemetery. Mr. Billings
was 70 yoars of age and a native of
Connecticut, having come to Nebraska
in tho pioneer dys. Ho was n veteran
of tho civil war and a member of tho
local G. A. R. post. His death, fol
lowed so closely by tint of his brother-in-law.
was a sad coincidence and a
heavy blow t' the family. Little con
cerning Mr. Billings' early history
could be learned, ns no ono could be
found who was acquainted with that
part of bis life.
