      Source Information:
    • Mason County birth records list a Car?va * Barr being born to John William Barr in 1877. When I look at the record it looks like Menerva Florence vs Car?va *. Is this a missing daughter or just a mistake in transcribing the record.

      John has a daughter born in 1876 Minerva Florence

  • 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.
