I am a descendant of Charles J. Dewey, born 1814 in Schoharie County, New York, died 1912 in Rose, Wayne County, New York. The Dewey Genealogy states that Charles J. Dewey married Sally Barber, born 1818, Schoharie County, New York, daughter of John Barber of Carlisle, Schoharie County, New York. There was a John Barber of Carlisle who had a daughter named Sarah, but she was unmarried and living with her parents in Trivoli Township, Peoria County, Illinois at the 1850 census. Her age is 30. The Sarah Barber who is my ancestor already had 3 daughters in 1850 and was living in Savannah, Wayne County, New York. I prepared a very thorough genealogy with lots of research, narrative and embedded photographs under the assumption that John Barber and his wife Prudence Kenyon were my ancestors. I have deleted them from my family tree but would be happy to share what I have with researchers who are descended from John Barber and Prudence Kenyon. Jeff Ward
