James Barrick was the son of the late James and Margaret (Bender) Barrick and was born Sep 2 1854. His mother died when he was yet very young, so he had no full brothers nor sisters, but as his father had married three times he had quite a family of half brothers and sisters, most of them preceding him in death, being of the first family and older than he. Mrs Hannah Malester of Carlisle along is living. Miss Mary Barrick and Mrs Kate Souders having died several years ago. Of the last family Samuel Barrick of Carlisle and Emma (Mrs Elmer Shambaugh) of Andersonburg are living; Ellen, (Mrs John Bernheisel), Clara (Mrs Alfred Sheriff) and Edward are dead.
Mr Barrick was twice married, his first wife, Martha M Kauffman died October 11 1891. Two children were the result of this union, Mary (Mrs Oliver Knouse), deceased, and Laura (Mrs Edward Dillman), living near New Germantown. Sometime later he married Miss Mary Hess who survives him. To this union two children were born, Minnie (Mrs George Meminger) of Lancaster county, and Lottie (Mrs Arthur Nickel) of Coatesville. Eleven grandchildren and a great grandson also survive him.
Mr Barrick was a kind husband and father, the comfort and welfare of his family being first in all his plans. Denied all chance of education himself, he tried to give his children the advantages that were lost to him. After his father died by hard work and economy he was able to buy the old homestead, replacing the old buildings and greatly improving the place. By trade he was a stone mason and the upper part of Perry county is full of monuments of Jimmy's work. He was an honest workman, a good friend and neighbor, a man who had many friends and very few enemies.
Funeral services were held Saturday forenoon at Sandy Hill Reformed Church, of which congregation he was an Elder. The services were conducted by his pastor, the Rev S W Beck The pallbearers were L R McMillen, E M Dobbs, Jesse Sheaffer, Frank Ehlman, Jacob Metz and R T Book. In defiance of the almost impassable roads a large congregation of friends and neighbors had gathered to show their respect for Jimmy and sympathy for the family in their great loss.
