To Hon Levi Barber Member of Congress
Your favor of the 19 of January was duly and thankfully received, and I should have written sooner had I dared obtrude my gibberish among the elegant love letters of Gen Jackson and Judge of Promentin. I will now give you some account of your relatives. Your Grandmother's name was Tryphena Humphrey of as good a family as any in the place, she died in January 1752 aged 32 and was the first white person buried in the limits of this town. The burying ground was given by her brother-in-law Joseph Willcox who was the second person buried there. Your Grandfather was one of the first settlers of West Simsbury remarkable for his skill in hunting which one time, as the Indians afterwards talk, deterred them from butchering the family. He died Jan 14, 1797 aged 84. Your Uncle Elijah left 3 children, 1 son David and two daughters in good circumstances. Probably you have already been informed that your Uncle Timothy died Apr 12, 1817 and left this property to Frederick Bandle (my sister's son) an industrious, pious, and laborious man. My mother who literally followed the divine direction of taking no thought for tomorrow died the 28 of Jul 1819 aged 93. She left 7 children...
