Looking for information on the following family/Families:

Charles William BARBER
(Depending on which record you look at, he was either born in New York or Pennsylvania - in January 1846). He did live in Tioga County for a period of time before moving around to several states.

He married Hattie BROWNELL (we also have mention of a Lois Brownell - dont know if they were one and the same), also possibly of Tioga County Pennsylvania, or of New York.

Charles, 2nd wife was Lucinda FELDBUSH whom he married later in life in 1904, in Posey County Indiana.

His father was Grant BARBER.
His mother...well, there is another puzzel...
They had Emma CARL on Charle's death certificate and on a census in 1850 there was an Elizabeth as his mother. Same person?

He (Charles), served in the Civil War. We have not yet confirmed what regiment or State he served for. Have come across information that he served New York AND the state of Pennsylvania, but that has not yet be confirmed.

Charle's Siblings, (2 we know of for sure):

**And, These we are fairly certain of:
Nathan, Amanda, Nancy, Mary, & Caroline, (not listed in birth order). *This is per a census taken for Steuben County New York.

His sister Harriet BARBER maried John McLean GOODRICH.

Charle's & Hattie's children (Know of 3 - could be more):

Bessie Mae Barber - Born:1878
(Bessie married Michael THOMAS of Ohio)

Daisy Barber - Born: 1882
(Daisy never married)

Raymond Barber - Born: ??
(Raymond married - wife unknown)

ANY information that someone may have is appreciated. Possibly some one here is related to the same line, or have come across them while searching your own.


What became of Hattie Brownell Barber, where and when?
Any additional information on the father Grant or mother Emma/Elizabeth.
What actual regiment and state Charles served for during the rebellion?
When did the family come to America? Are they connected to the Barbers who have a long history here?
So on and So On...

Some of this we have been round and round on and havent yet been able to get through the walls.
Maybe YOU will have the sledge hammer to help me break through!!!!
Thank you.
