Inscription:
can you add the following to John Barbers bio, I've transcribed it from his stone-

"In memory of John Starr Barber son of the Hon. Noyes and Mary Chester Barber. Born Groton Conn April 23, 1820. Fell Jan 15, 1865 at the battle of Fort Fisher N.C. Lieut. Chas. L. Franklin executive officer U.S. Steamer Tosco in communicating the sad news of the death of John Barber wrote it is with much regret I have to announce to you the death of John Barber late of this vessel. He was one of a detachment of picked men sent from here on the 15th to assist in storming Fort Fisher and fell early in the assault, killed by a grape shot. While on board this ship he was faithful in the discharge of all his duties and a good man cheerfully obedient and always ready for any service."
