    Barber Family in Louisiana
    Barber Family in Louisiana
    Samuel Barber joins the Army in 1801, arrives in Louisiana by 1806, marries in 1813, and moves his family to Texas in 1829. Though written in 1997, this still represents my best thinking about Samuel Barber's life from the time he joined the Army in 1801 until he left Louisiana for Texas in 1829.
    John Lyon v. Reuben Barrow lawsuit
    John Lyon v. Reuben Barrow lawsuit
    In 1807 my fifth great grandfather, Reuben Barrow, was sued by a neighbor, John Lyon, for defamation. Lyon asked for $500 compensation for a poem Barrow had written accusing him of hog stealing. Barrow countersued for $1000. Lyon won but the court records in Opelousas, Louisiana, don't say if he collected. Read the poem and some of the court records.
