PORTRAIT AND BIOGRAPHICAL ALBUM 

JAMES M. BARBER. Among those who have passed away and who have left behind them a good record as men and citizens, may be properly mentioned Mr. BARBER. A man of unbounded energy and enterprise, he most assuredly left his footprints on the sands of time and presented an example of industry and perseverance worthy of emulation. Commencing with modest means, such was his diligence and his good judgment in the disbursement of his capital, that at his death he left a large estate including five hundred and twenty-one acres of land which was divided up among his children before the widow had been assigned her dowry of one hundred and nineteen acres, which with its buildings and other improvements constitutes one of the most desirable country homes in Greene County.

Mr. BARBER was born January 18, 1822, in Cedarville Township, and was a man of strong character, warm in his likes and dislikes, but of that temperament which drew toward him hosts of friends and which made him greatly beloved, especially by his near neighbors and his own family. He was formerly a Democrat in politics but during the latter part of his life was an active worker in the ranks of the Republican party. He was warmly interested in temperance movements and totally opposed to the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors. He kept himself thoroughly posted upon current events and loved to travelóa pastime in which he was joined by his amiable wife who enjoyed this recreation as much as himself. Their last journey was to Jacksonville, Fla., where Mr. BARBER was attacked with cerebro hemorrhage, from which his death caused January 25, 1888. The bereaved wife returned home with the remains of her husband and they were laid to rest in Cedarville cemetery while over them has been erected the finest monument in this part of the country.

The marriage of James BARBER and Miss Mary L. BICKETT was celebrated at the brideís home, her fatherís farm, near Jasper, April 13, 1852, and not quite three years afterward, December 27, 1854, they removed to the home where Mrs. BARBER still lives. Mrs. BARBER was born May 6, 1833, in Jasper Township and is the daughter of John BICKETT, who came to Ohio from Pennsylvania in 1818, settling in Xenia Township, this county. The paternal grandparents, John and Elizabeth BICKETT, were natives of Ireland and of Scotch-Irish descent, and settled in Pennsylvania in the year 1797. The early progenitors of the family were Protestants as their descendants have uniformly been. Grandfather BICKETT upon coming to America settled in Pennsylvania where he spent the remainder of his life. His wife subsequently joined her children in this county and died about 1839 or 1840 having attained to the advanced age of eighty years. The BICKETTS in coming to America were on the ocean twenty weeks.

John BICKETT was married in 1821 to Miss Peggy DEAN, daughter of Daniel DEAN, who removed to Ohio from Lexington, Ky., at a very early day. The maiden name of his wife was Elizabeth STEELE, also of Kentucky.

To Mr. and Mrs. BARBER there was born a family of twelve children, all of whom are living. John C. is a prosperous merchant of Cedarville; Robert Lee is married, has one child and is engaged in merchandising at South Salem, this State; he visited California during the gold excitement and is a very intelligent man, well informed upon all general subjects and especially the history of the great West. Charles M. is married and farming on a part of the old homestead, about one-half mile from his mother; he has two children - Colin and Marie. Huldah J., a mute, married Charles H. RICE, afflicted in the same manner. They however, have a bright little boy, Jamie, who can do enough talking for the family and can converse with his parents by means of his fingers as readily as they. The little fellow has considerable knowledge of telegraphing and is more than ordinarily bright and promising. They live on a farm a short distance north of Cedarville. Alice is the wife of R. S. ANDERSON and the mother of the two bright children - Ethel and Eula; they live on their own farm near Clifton, this county; Laura H. is the wife of D. S. COLLINS, and they also live on a farm near Clifton; Miss Effie makes her home with her brother in Cedarville; A. D. carries on the home farm for his mother in a highly creditable manner; Norah, Lea, Luna and Jessie complete the list. Mr. BARBER from his youth was a consistent member of the United Presbyterian Church, to which Mrs. BARBER belongs as does also her whole family except one son.

"Daniel Dean was born in the village of Tubermore, Londonderry, in the north of Ireland, in 1766, son of Roger and Mary Dean, and was 18 years of age when he came to this country in 1784, landing at the port of Philadelphia. For about four years after his arrival here he sojourned in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia, "getting his bearing," and then went to Kentucky and bought tract of land in the vicinity of Mt. Sterling in Montgomery County. A couple of years later he sent back to Ireland for his mother, his father meanwhile having died, and a year later, in 1791, he married Janet Steele who was born in Augusta County, Virginia, but who had moved  with her parents into Kentucky, and after his marriage established his home on his land in the Mt. Sterling where he continued to live until 1812, when he disposed of his interests there and moved up here into the valley of the Little Miami and settled on the tract of land he had previously bought with a view to removing  his family from the baleful influence of human slavery that had fastened itself on the state of Kentucky."

Author Note: In the Marion County, Iowa 1860 Census was this: A Joseph B. and  Sarah Dean (age 24, and 1 yr. old son James W. Dean - I believe may be grandson of James Dean, in records as moving to Indiana from Greene Co., Ohio and dying young.

View micro film / copy of this actual written marriage record from page 133 "Marriage Record - Vol. A  - Greene Probate Court" of Greene Co., Ohio. According to the published Biography of William Campbell Dean, this mention of brother James is made..."James who married Elizabeth Pendroy (Erroneously spelled Pendray in the publication...but actual written marriage record spells it correctly, Pendroy), and moved to Delaware County, Indiana." Also it is mentioned that this James Dean died in Indiana (date death unknown).

This Joseph B. and  Sarah Dean were neighbors of Eli H. Pendroy in Marion County, Iowa 1860 census.

 

Adam Reynolds Bickett is one of the honored citizens of Greene county, who has passed the seventy-third milestone on life's journey. His career as ever been such as to command the respect and confidence of men and he is a worthy representative of an honored pioneer family. His home is located about three miles east of the city of Xenia and upon the farm adjoining this place he was born June 24, 1829, his parents being William R. and Isabella (Alexander) Bickett. The ancestry can be traced back to Ireland, where Adam Bickett, the grandfather of our subject, was born. At length determining to try his fortunes in America he crossed the Atlantic and after a long voyage of thirteen weeks took up his abode in PA, where he spent his remaining days. He married Elizabeth Reed and among their children was William R. Bickett, who was born in Coaquilla Valley, PA, about 1796. In 1818 he started with his mother and the other members of the family -- the father having previously died -- for OH. The journey was made with a six-horse team and during the first winter the family lived with Robert Hamell, a brother-in-law of William R. Bickett, who had located in Greene county the previous year. In the spring of 1819 the family purchased one hundred and fifty acres of wood land and William and his brother John built a log house, which remained the home of the family for many years. Pioneer conditions existed and they experienced all the hardships and difficulties incident to a settlement upon the frontier. Venison was a common dish upon their table, as was wild turkey and other game. After arriving at years of maturity William R. Bickett was married in 1827 to Isabella Alexander, and the became the parents of six children: Adam R., of this review; Mathew A., a well known farmer of the county; Mary Jane, who became the wife of Solomon Foust, who died a few months later, leaving a son, Edward; Elizabeth Isabella; Lydia Ann, who died when twenty years of age; and Harvey. The parents were devoted members of the United Presbyterian church. The father was a very active and influential man in his community, and at his death many friends mourned their loss. He passed away in 1865 and his wife died April 4, 1883, at the advanced age of eighty-three years, and was laid his side in the cemetery at Xenia. In the subscription schools Adam Reynolds Bickett began his education and remained at home assisting in the development and cultivation of the farm until 1864, when he abandoned the plow and took up the rifle in defense of his country, becoming a member of Company D, One Hundred and Fifty-fourth OH Infantry as a private. He was at the front for four months and was mustered in and out at Camp Dennison, returning from the front in August, 1864. He had previously belonged to the national guards and had enlisted for five years. After his father's death Mr. Bickett assisted in the operation of the home farm until his marriage, which important event in his life occurred on the 9th of December, 1867, the lady of his choice being Miss Mary Agnes Wright, who was born near Oldtown, Greene county, a daughter of John B. and Sidney (Simpson) Wright. The young couple began their domestic life upon the farm which is now the home of Mr. Bickett. He has made excellent improvements here and now has a valuable and desirable property. He erected a good residence, large and substantial barns and commodious outbuildings, his place being now well equipped with all modern accessories and conveniences. Within its borders are comprised one hundred and ninety-six acres and the land is highly cultivated. The home of Mr. and Mrs. Bickett was blessed with three children: Clinton Wright, now deceased; Mary Belle, who is with her father; and Lydia S. who died at the age of sixteen years. The mother passed away in 1879 at the age of forty-two years and was laid to rest in the cemetery at Xenia. She was a member of the United Presbyterian church and a most estimable lady. On the 18th of January, 1882, Mr. Bickett was again married, his second union being with Ruth Anna Kyle, a daughter of Joseph and Anna (Cassill) Kyle.
