Birth: 1888
Kentucky, USA
Death: 1976
Greens Fork
Wayne County
Indiana, USA

Son of Wesley & Mary Fairchild Barrier.

A former member of the Quaker church (Friends), he was a charter member of the Greens Fork, Indiana, Church of the Nazarene when it organized in the late 1920's. He lived in Greens Fork on the north side of the old Friends church and after the Nazarene Church bought the property in 1935, he became the caretaker of the church property. He also rang the bell for Sunday services and Wednesday prayer meeting.
He died of a heart attack while tending the church lawn. The night before, at Wednesday prayer meeting, he gave a wonderful testimony of the saving grace of Jesus Christ, then sang the hymn "Victory In Jesus". The next day the words of that hymn rang true..."And someday I'll sing up there the song of Victory." His funeral was so large that cars were parked double down the middle of the entire street in front of the church. He was a quiet man but loved by the children to whom he would give peppermint candies.

His first wife, Nona, is buried beside him as well as his daughter Edna. His second wife, Bessie, is buried elsewhere beside her first husband, (somewhere in Ohio). He also had a daughter, Marie.
