Birth: Apr. 10, 1884

Death: Apr. 24, 1969

Samuel was born to Ezekiel Maynard and Nancy Ellen Barr.There was a divorce and Samuel was raised by his grandfather, Jacob Barr, and known by Samuel Neeley Barr.
In the 1900 Census of Putnam County Jacob Barr is the head of the household consisting of himself, a daughter, Rebeckie (Rebecca) and a grandson, Nela (hard to decipher name but could be short for Neely), birthdate April 1886....16 years old. So believe this to be Samuel Neely Barr living with his grandfather who raised him. The birthdate is different than what we have but is close in his age.
