JOHN C. BARRON, M.D., New York, son of John and Mary (Conner) Barron, was born in Woodbridge, Nov 2, 1837. After receiving preliminary education at a select school in his native town he entered Burlington College at Burlington, N.J., the institution, being at that time under the rectorship of the Right Rev. George W. Doane, D.D., bishop of the diocese of New Jersey. In 1858 he passed hence to Yale College studying in the scientific department, and at the same time attending lectures in the eminent private school of Drs. Jewett, Hooker & Knight. In 1860 he entered the College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York, graduating thence in 1861. In April of that year, immediately upon receiving his degree, he entered the United States volunteer army as an assistant surgeon, being passed by the "Board of Army Examiners" sitting at Albany, and was assigned to the Mechanics' Rifles. This position was declined on account of being tendered the assistant surgeoncy of Sixty-ninth New York Regiment, then in the field. This regiment was among the foremost to offer their services to the general government early in 1861.

Dr. Barron immediately upon his appointment, with a detachment of the regiment, proceeded to Washington and was sworn into the service of the United States, going at once to active work with the regiment, then the advance-guard in Virginia, and, as stated in the publications of the day, "showing his devotion to the cause by donating one thousand dollars for medical supplies, etc., to the hospital department." The Sixty-ninth saw much service, being at Blackburn's Ford, and at the first Bull Run battle, at the latter losing in killed and wounded nearly two hundred men. He held his commission until the following August. In June, 1863, he re-entered the army, being assigned assistant surgeon of the Seventh New York Regiment, N.G.S.N.Y., and serving with the reserves called out in 1863 to repel the advance of Lee. In July, 1869, he was promoted to the surgeoncy. In June, 1871, he resigned from the regiment, and was appointed surgeon-general of the First Division, N.G.S.N.Y., with the rank of colonel, on the staff of Maj.-Gen. Alexander Shaler. He was married, June 23, 1869, to Harriet M., daughter of Rev. Albert Williams, of San Francisco, Cal. After spending a year in Europe, including an extended tour of the Eastern countries and a trip of seven hundred miles up the river Nile, he returned and settled in New York City
