    Children:
    1. James Albert Barr b. 28 Jul 1898, Mason County, West Virginia, USA; d. 9 May 1969, St Thomas Hospital Medical Ctr, Akron, Ohio, USA.
    2. Harry A. Barr b. 25 Apr 1899.
    3. Harvey Franklin Barr b. 25 Apr 1899, Mason County, West Virginia, USA; d. 4 Apr 1979, Jackson County, West Virginia, USA; bur. Longview Church Cemetery, Jackson County, West Virginia, USA.

    9. 1. Floyd Irvin Barr b. 6 Aug 1912, Mason County, West Virginia, USA; d. 15 Jun 1989, Marion, Marion County, Ohio, USA.
    10. William Arthur Barr b. 21 Jul 1915, Mason County, West Virginia, USA; d. 12 Mar 1978, Buckeye Lake, Licking County, Ohio, USA; bur. Albany, Ohio.

Generation: 3
  1. John William Barr b. 04 Mar 1831, Jackson County, West Virginia, USA; d. 30 Jun 1891, Jackson County, West Virginia, USA; bur. Spruce Cemetery, Mason County, West Virginia, USA.

    Notes:
    I use the John William Barr vs the John Henry Barr because various records refer to him as John WILLIAM Barr. For example the birth records of some of his children read John William Barr. I cannot find a record that gives the Henry. Marker at cemetery indicates that he was 60 years, 3 months, and 26 days old when he died on 30 June 1891. If this is correct he was born 04 Mar 1831.

  2. John m. Mary A. Catherine Rayburn 1850, Jackson County, West Virginia, USA. Mary (daughter of Henry Rayburn and Nancy Barnett) b. 29 Oct 1832, Mason County, West Virginia, USA; d. 1853, Mason County, West Virginia, USA; bur. Preston-Love Cemetery, Mason, West Virginia, USA. [Group Sheet]

  3. Mary A. Catherine Rayburn b. 29 Oct 1832, Mason County, West Virginia, USA; d. 1853, Mason County, West Virginia, USA; bur. Preston-Love Cemetery, Mason, West Virginia, USA.

    Notes:
    Buried:
    Junitia Burdette read most of the cemeteries in Mason County. She has commented that she believes Mary Catherine Rayburn-Barr was buried at Preston Love Cemetery.

    Died:
    Mason County CH Records indicate she was 21 when she died. In the 1950 Census she is 17 living with John at his Mothers's home. Son George was born in Apr of 1953. The Courthouse Records that were copied from the original records were alphabetized by last name. Somewhere in the copying dates were omitted. The dates jump from February to September. Instead of the actual date they inserted the quote mark.

    Children:
    1. Sarah Frances Barr b. 4 May 1851, Mason County, West Virginia, USA; d. 16 Dec 1933, Mason County, West Virginia, USA; bur. 18 Dec 1933, Spruce Cemetery, Mason County, West Virginia, USA.
    2. 2. George Henry Barr b. 18 Apr 1853, Mason County, West Virginia, USA; d. 18 Dec 1914, Mason County, West Virginia, USA; bur. Spruce Cemetery, Mason County, West Virginia, USA.

Generation: 4
  1. Isaac Barr b. 1800, Ballynahinch, Ireland; d. 1833, Jackson County, West Virginia, USA.

    Notes:
    I have seen some Ancestory posting giving date of death as 1835. A marriage certificate exist for Mary Campbell Barr to William Fife on 31 Jul 1835. A resonalble person would assume that Isaac had to die after the census in 1830 and 31 Jul 1835. The question is WHEN? Ballynahinch, Ireland

    This may or may not be the place where the Barr Family originated. I have nothing to prove or disprove my theory. Another theory that I have read about the arrival of Isaac Barr in the United States was that he and his brother came here to cut timber. Again it is just hear-say, I can not prove nor disprove the theory. I have another theory on Isaac's date of death. He was alive for the 1830 census, first son John William was born in 1831, his second son, George Wesley Barr, was born on 4 May 1833. Using the old wives theory that the first baby can come anytime, the second baby always takes nine months Isaac would have to have been alive in the summer of 1832. Mary Campbell Barr married William Lewis Fife on 31 Jul 1835. Isaac died after the summer of 1832 and prior to July 1835.

  2. Isaac m. Mary Campbell 6 Jan 1825, Mason County, West Virginia, USA. Mary b. 1807, New York USA; d. Abt 1895, Mason County, West Virginia, USA. [Group Sheet]

  3. Mary Campbell b. 1807, New York USA; d. Abt 1895, Mason County, West Virginia, USA.

    Notes:
    Married 2nd William L. Fife June 30, 1835 He was a school teacher. In 1850 he was 45 years old
    George Wesley was listed as 17 and John William 22 with Catherine (Mary Catherine Rayburn - John's wife) 17. In the 1880 Census Mary is listed as living with her son George. She was using the family name of Barr not Fife her second husband' family name. I can not find a record of William Lewis Fife's death. Place of birth New York according to Census records for George W. Barr.

    Notes:
    Note in this 1830 United States Federal Census it list two males under age five living in house hold. Who were these two unidentified males?
    John William Barr was not born until 1831 before the Census and George Wesley Barr was not born until 1833. The total number of people in household four.
