[ Dr. SAMUEL4 BARBER (Samuel3), b probably Simsbury CT 1713/14; d 14 Jan 1797; m/1 Simsbury 11 Jun 1739 Tryphena HUMPHREY, b 29 Jan 1722/3, d Simsbury 2 Mar 1752 (the first burial in south burying ground, Simsbury), daughter of Samuel and Lydia (NORTH) HUMPHREY; r Simsbury. Samuel m/2 Hannah HUMPHREY, daughter of Noah and Hannah (CASE) HUMPHREY, b 8 Jun 1728, d Canton 28 Jul 1819 at the home of her son Giles. Hannah m/1 John ?CASE. Samuel's expertise with herbs and roots and his good fortune and ability in healing with them earned him the title of "Doctor" with no formal training. A well-known hunter and certainly an eccentric, he was welcome I'm sure in any home where disease brought despair to its occupants. Although he lived in Simsbury, Samuel bought 2 lots in Norfolk CT, and lived there for a time. The History of Norfolk gives an account of a hunting trip by Samuel and 2 of his sons, former residents of Norfolk, who came into Norfolk from Simsbury to wander around. They startled a panther up into a tree, and were obliged to shoot it to escape harm, and "to rid the world of a frightful monster." The Pownal VT 1790 Census lists a Samuel Barber, with 2 males over 16, 1 male under 16, and 4 females. Was this Dr. Samuel's family?
