Looking for parents of Isaac Barber. Believe he and brother (Robert J.)
arrived in Perry County possibly as teenagers sans parents circa 1850s. Not
listed in census - possibly a minor living with non-Barber relatives. Where
did they come from? Isaac married Margaret Leticia Craig b. 1838 near
Pinckneyville; d. 1902 (daughter of John Craig and Rachel Brown) in 1861. All
probably lived around Swanwick ("Craig Station" area). Also need info on
parents of John Craig (1806-1856 NC?>IL) and Rachel Brown (1811-? KY?>IL).
Does anyone know anything about availability of Hopewell Presbyterian Church
records? May contain needed info.
