Canton Dec 24th 1821
To Hon Levi Barber Member of Congress
I have been informed that you are the son of David Barber of Castleton Vermont deceased (I think) and grandson of Samuel Barber of West Simsbury (now Canton) deceased. My object in writing is to ascertain the fact respecting our relationship, to present you my respects, and solicit a correspondence...
Canton Mar 18th 1822
To Hon Levi Barber Member of Congress
Your favor of the 19 of January was duly and thankfully received...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...
I wish that you would write to me again before Congress adjourns.
Accept my respite
Florence Louise Flemming: "Dr Samuel Barber- 4th Generation of Barber in America"
Lucy James Cole from a loose sheet in the Barber Genealogy "The third Samuel Barber - 4th Generation (the Doctor) born in 1713, died in 1797. His first wife was Tryphena Humphrey, daughter of Samuel Humphrey; she was born in 1722; died in 1752. The second wife of Dr Samuel was Hannah Humphrey, daughter of Capt Noah Humphrey; she died in 1819, aged 93 years. The doctor had fourteen children - seven by each wife. The third Samuel Barber was the son of the second Samuel and Mercy Holcomb Barber."
Lucy Mayberry BARBER Cole, Dictated by her father Capt Levi BARBER, and copied by her great grand daughter Linda Jean ENGLE Lackore Summer 2000:
"...There were four brothers (sons of Samuel Barber - 3rd Generation) who removed from the old parish (Windsor in 1738 to Simsbury and lived in that portion of it now called Canton, in Hartford County Connecticut) viz Samuel, Thomas, Johnathan, and John Barber, (all) of whom purchased land and lived contiguous to each other.
"Dr Samuel Barber had fourteen children, eleven sons and three daughters, all of whom lived to adult years. He resided on the premises occupied in 1845 by his grandson, Volney G Barber. He died in Jan 1797 aged 83 years. His wife's name was Tryphena Humphrey who died in Jan 1752 aged 32 years, and was the first white person buried in the limits of Canton. The burying ground was given to the town by her brother-in-law, Joseph W Wilcox who was the second person buried there."

p53: "Dr. Samuel Barber had the reputation of a good citizen, although somewhat eccentric in his habits, and not infrequently impulsive in his actions. He doted much on his skill in roots and herbs; was famous as a hunter, the woods at the time affording an abundance of game. In one of his hunting excursions in Norfolk, accompanied by some of his sons, they chased a large panther into his den, and how to dislodge him from his hiding place was the first question to be solved. The old gentleman, nothing daunted, Putnam-like, descended into the cavern; after groping his way some distance, the panther, not relishing this intrusion upon his retreat, suddenly turned and made for the entrance of his den, which he accomplished by closely squeezing by his bold intruder. The panther on his arrival at the mouth of the den, seeing the party without, prepared to give him battle, stood motionless, when one of the sons discharged a ball through his body and intestines, which produced no emotion, the animal sullenly retaining his position. This act of the son called forth a sharp reprimand from the father for his not taking a more effective aim, and calling for his gun, the old gentleman discharged a ball through the head of the animal, which put an end to his existence. This exploit may justly be put on a parallel with the famous story of `Putnam and the Wolf.'
"The family of Barbers were among the earliest and most conspicuous of West Simsbury. They were noted for their habits of immigration, and are to be found in various states of the Union; few of the descendants (although numerous) are to be met within the town of Canton. -Brown's `General History of Simsbury, etc.'"
