Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1872
Alta
Placer County
California, USA
Death: Nov. 9, 1894
Green Valley Acres
El Dorado County
California, USA

Benjamin was the son of English immigrants, William and Lucinda Barber. He was raised in Alta and had at least six siblings. Benjamin died in an accident at Green Valley where he was mining. He was stooping down to repair the track when a large slab of serpentine rock fell from the side of the tunnel, instantly crushing him to death. He was just 22 years old. His funeral was one of the largest seen in Dutch Flat for years. The casket was literally hidden beneath the numerous floral offerings in a tribute to the popularity of this young man who was described in his obituary as manly, upright, faithful, dutiful, gentle-hearted, and bright. He was survived by his mother and his siblings Louisa, Jennie, and Charles. He was predeceased by his father and his siblings Bennie, Nettie, and George.
