  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.
