    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.
