    Notes 
    • I finally found George's family in the 1860 census. He is living in German Township, Harrison Co., Ohio with wife Permelia, and his children: Mary C. (12), James (10), Elizabeth (8), Gustavus (4), Tabitha (1). Tabitha's name is wrongly spelled as Urbitha, and the last name is written as Bear for the whole family!

      In Mary C. Denning's obituary, it was stated that Mary's family came to Indian Springs, Martin County, Indiana when she was 12 years old. That means that the family moved from Ohio to Indiana in about 1862.

      Some researchers say he was born in Ohio or Germany. Death record at the Pondera Couty Courthouse lists Anthia's father's name as Geo. L. Bar with birthplace as Germany. Lena Barr Stephens listed in the 1910 census that her father's birthplace was Virginia. I also read on Rootsweb an account where one of the Dustin relatives thought the Barr name may have originally been Tarr.

      In 1870 living in Mitcheltree Twn (Trinity Springs), Martin Co., Indiana with wife Permelia, and the following children: Mary C., James M., Elizabeth N., Gus ?, Tabitha A., Jantha ?, Marlena, and Margaret (Georgia P.). Three doors down is Robert Denning family. James Irving Denning would marry Mary Catherine Barr.

      In 1880 George was living in Mitcheltree Twn., Martin Co., Indiana with wife Permelia and daughters Malena E., Tabith, and Georgia P. In this census he lists that both of his parents were born in Pennsylvania.

      George and Permelia were buried next to James. All three share one upright stone. There are two smaller stones lined up next to it with a space between the two smaller. One stone says mother and the other read JMB. It's assumed that George is in the space between them. Delorma said that her Mom used to go by a big tree in the old cemetery and lay a flower by a rock. There was no marker. She said this is my baby sister. Then she would walk back toward the back. This area is where Permelia, George, and James are buried.

      A lot of the information on the Barr family came from Missy Owens. She states her sources as follows:
      Martin County Census Records (1870, 1880, 1900)
      Choctaw County, Oklahoma, Census Records (1910, 1930)
      Martin County Death Records
      Martin and Hancock County Marriage Records and Returns
      Martin County Cemetery Inscription Books
      Martin County Obituaries
      Choctaw County, Oklahoma, Obituaries
      Pondera County, Montana, Death Records
      Frances Marion Freeman's Family Bible
      William Long (Huff/Denning Family Information)
      Jerry Cox (Huff/Denning Family Information)

      Notes: Mary's obit. states that she and James had no children. There was a foster son named H.T. Freeman who lived with them. H.T. is Harvey T. Freeman, brother to Frances Marion Freeman who later marries Mary's sister Tabitha Barr. J Mary came with her family to Indiana when she was around 12 years old.
