Dear Mr. Barber,
I so wish I had something substantive to share with you, but I'm afraid I don't. I'm not a genealogist nor am I related to the Barber family. I'm a historian in Stafford County and work primarily with land tracts, mills, and industries here. My interest in the Barbers is focused pretty much on the land they owned. As I work with places in Stafford I attempt to include information about the people who owned, lived on, or were associated with the property. The Barbers have been difficult because they seem to have lived very near the Fauquier County line and had as many connections there as with Stafford. Some of them moved away and some stayed. There was a John M. Barber who was granted a license to sell retail goods in 1822. That's the only John Barber I see in my files just now.
I've abstracted the Stafford County militia records that span the years 1781-1856 and have the following Barbers (the year/s each man was listed follows his name):
Bernard 1829, 46
Nathaniel 1825, 28, 29, 30
William 1803, 24, 28
I hope some of this proves of interest.
